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

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.

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

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 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.

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.

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.
