Praise and reviews for Nora Gedgaudas and her book, Primal Fat Burner

This unique book provides a much-needed big picture. It is one that addresses the state of humankind, the errant direction we have all taken, the dark influence of global corporations and, most importantly, how we can regain our power and embrace a truly healthy, sustainable future. Nora makes the case for setting aside our differences to focus on what we all share: a common biological design, and a need for a food economy that restores local, natural systems. In this way, we can take back what was once ours, and what is fundamentally our primal birthright.

Nora Gedgaudas successfully navigates the dietary minefield in her new
book, Primal Fat Burner. Whether you are following a strict ketogenic
diet, cycle in and out, or simply want to learn more about incorporating
healthy foods and healthy fat in your diet – much like our ancestors – look
no further.

If I could only recommend one book for the hungry, the lost, and the wounded, it would be Primal Fat Burner. A meticulous merging of science and storytelling, Primal Fat Burner is as satisfying as the food it champions. Gedgaudas makes the unassailable case for the centrality of animal fat in our history and our health. This is a book with a mission: to break the addictive, destructive spell of agricultural foods and restore us, body and mind, to ourselves.

Nora Gedgaudas presents compelling information on the health benefits of dietary fat from an evolutionary perspective. She does an excellent job in debunking the myth that high fat low carbohydrate diets are unhealthy, and that low-fat high carbohydrate diets are healthy. She provides valuable resources for those interested in transitioning from unhealthy high-carbohydrate diets to healthy fat-based diets.

The message of the book is powerful and compelling. America has been on a disastrous course with respect to diet in its official policies, and in regard to our own work, the Standard American Diet represents an impediment to achieving the best results with neurofeedback. A major reset is in order, and the essential path is laid out in this book. Nora has been a prime mover in the paleo diet movement with her first major book, Primal Body Primal Mind. But the story continues to evolve as research proliferates, and as we learn to adjust to current realities regarding agriculture and the whole food processing chain…

Nora Gedgaudas makes the unique case for the central role of fat and outlines a way of eating to dramatically improve health. Ketogenic eating plans are an important tool address the growing epideic of autoimmune disease.

For the latest in the common question of “what diet is best?” — there is good news and bad news: The bad news is that our low-fat, high carb, highly processed food diets have been a health disaster. The good news is, we can switch to a fat- and naturally based diet, for more efficient fat-burning, energy-producing regimen that we need in to survive and even thrive in our modern lifestyles. The evidence lies in our distant human past, and modern science confirms this. Nora is a brilliant and talented writer who can make even the most complex concepts that are also going against the grain (yup!)  a joy to read. Then there are the amazing recipes: simple to prepare, nourishing, delicious and providing our bodies and brains with the true nutrition they need.  All in one gorgeous book!

Primal Fat Burner is an amazing follow up to Primal Body Primal Mind.  Nora does what most writers won’t do which is to truly answer the questions of those that want to know the answers.  After originally reading PBPM I had loads of questions. Primal Fat Burner answers those questions.  This book is full of incredible recipes, nutritional nuggets and an approach to Ketogenic dieting that will dispel the notion that Fat is bad. Get ready to clear your pantry of poison and find your paleo path in Primal Fat Burner today!

Nora Gedgaudas deftly describes the link between what we eat and what we become. Millions of years of human evolution made us omnivores with well-muscled bodies and extraordinary minds that could not have developed without a diet rich in fat, including saturated fat! Read this book and you’ll understand why much maligned animal fat is so important to your health and why it is critical that it come from animals grazing on healthy land (and not confined to feedlots). I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

Ready to live long, lustily, wisely and well?  Then it’s time to let Nora Gedgaudas teach you the “fats of life.
