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

This book tells the fascinating story of how our very humanity–our healthy bodies and exceptional brains–evolved from eating animal foods including their natural fats. The science supporting the lack of harm–and indeed the benefit–of dietary fat, including saturated fat, has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. In this well-researched and wide-ranging book, Gedgaudas shows a mastery of that science–and then takes it a step further. Drawing upon her many years of personal, clinical experience with patients, she explains how to take these principles into practice, bridging the gap between science and usable information for daily nutrition. This is a unique and profound contribution to the field.

In terms of nutritional knowledge, Ms. Gedgaudas is about a decade ahead of 99% of U.S. physicians, taught virtually zilch about healthful eating in medical school. Counterintuitive as it sounds, increasing your fat intake will promote weight loss. The real nutritonal villain is sugar (a fact kept hidden from us by the sugar industry!). The low carb-high fat diet described in ‘Primal Fat Burner’ protects people from obesity and heart disease. When it comes to making the overweight and chronically ill American healthy again, ‘Primal Fat Burner’ is destined to be a real game changer.

Nora Gedgaudas goes above and beyond to seek the truth, connect the dots and share the knowledge and wisdom that she passionately acquires. Her guidance and insight into optimum health has gifted revitalised health and vibrant wellbeing to not only my family and I, but also to tens of thousands of truly thankful Australians. One of Nora’s most humbling qualities is that she’s not out in the public health sphere to be ‘right,’ her intent is pure and she strives to grow and evolve in unison with nature itself, therefore it is crystal clear and ever so apparent that her authentic personal virtue serves to empower humanity, the animal kingdom, and this glorious planet that homes us.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

Why read Nora’s Primal Fat Burner? Not just because it’s an honest, original and comprehensive revelation of the reasons why fats, and healthy animal fats in particular, are required for optimal health today (which they are), but they are in fact responsible for our becoming human. Unlike so many others who hold back, Nora explains the scientific and historical truth clearly so you can truly understand why you’d want to give yourself the gift of a Primal Fat Burning life – read her book, use it wisely, and you’ll never regret it.
