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.
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.
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.
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.
“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.
