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

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 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.

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.

Colin Champ, MDAssistant Professor Pittsburgh Cancer Institute

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.

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.

“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!

This book, Primal Fat Burner, by Nora Gedgaudas, is the best resource pertaining to the anthropology and modern science for prolonging the health span that has been compiled to date. It is exceptionally organized in a logical and engaging manner. It is flawlessly referenced with scientific journals. It is both unique in its approach and detailed beyond the normal. It is written with no wasted words; each sentence is a learning experience. It is always engaging, and the reader wants to read more and more as new information is integrated into the story. The icing (perhaps a better metaphor would be “drizzled duck fat”) of her book is the organization of recipes and meals for quick practical application of the health science.

For everyone who is interested in the science and practicality of prolonging the health span, this book is a must read. Widespread integration of these concepts could change the face of America (and beyond), reducing health care costs to the point where both social programs and balanced budgets are within reach. The wisdom of the book is not only critical for government policy makers, but also for healthcare providers, teachers, and everyone who wants to be healthy. Everyone who reads this book will be indebted to Nora Gedgaudas for her monumental effort to compile and bring this information to the public.

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

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.

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.
