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

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 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.

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.

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.

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 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.
