"Eat Like a Fatass, Look Like a Goddess is, without a doubt, the most important book of the 21st century. If the principles of this book were followed by all...obesity, autoimmune diseases, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. would virtually disappear. This brilliant book refutes the lies we have been told about nutrition....It should be required reading in schools across America." -Don J. Serio, D.C.
"Erika's book is a godsend in our modern world of nutritional misinformation. Erika's understanding of nutrition science and sustainability is far more comprehensive, in-depth and tasty than that of most physicians, dietitians, nutritionists and other 'experts.'" -Chelsea McLean Casey, Cancer Survivor, Advisory Panelist & Model Liaison, Fashion Week San Diego
