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.
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.
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…
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 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.
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 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.
“I’ve been a fan of your work for a long time and this new one is the best I have seen on the subject.”
If you want to take you brain and your health with you for the rest of your life read this book and follow the high fat diet Nora has developed! This book separates fad from fact, it is loaded with the real science, and provides a pathway to healing your body, your mind, your mood, and for relieving chronic pain. There is no better guide than Nora in this journey.
Ready to live long, lustily, wisely and well? Then it’s time to let Nora Gedgaudas teach you the “fats of life.
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!
