You think you're doing everything right: diet, exercise and even willpower. But, you're still not getting the results you deserve because you have a fear of fat and your hormones are out of whack. That’s why this book is a must— to give you all the missing keys you need whether you're low fat, no-fat, Paleo, Primal, or simply focusing on detox and cleansing.
For decades, Ann Louise Gittleman has been a lone voice advocating the return of Smart Fats to the diet even when fat was demonized for the past 30 years by mainstream doctors, nutritionists and dieticians. In her years of research and experience with thousands of clients from A-list celebrities to everyday men and women, Gittleman has discovered that hormones—which govern metabolism, stress, hunger and sex—are the most overlooked and underrated culprits that can block even the most disciplined weight loss efforts. Yet, they are ALL brought into balance by the addition of the same powerful dietary solution—the Smart Fats!
In Eat Fat Lose Weight you’ll…
- Uncover how bile—the body’s ignored but primary method to breakdown fats and eliminate toxins—can be linked to the most urgent health concerns. Fortunately, all of the degenerative and mysterious illnesses connected to inadequate bile can be easily remedied, and Gittleman will show you how—whether you still have your gallbladder...or not! One unexpected solution may be as easy as avoiding the top three food allergens.
- Discover how metabolism can be derailed by sneaky saboteurs you never dreamed of—like hidden dental and sinus infections and the Epstein-Barr Virus; how your adrenals can inhibit your thyroid; how fruit can make you fat; why grain is such a drain; and how copper overload can wreak havoc on sex hormones by contributing to estrogen dominance.
- Become intimately familiar with ALL the Smart Fats that deserve a prominent place at breakfast, lunch & dinner. Most importantly, you will learn how to fully utilize them for effortless "waist control" and the prevention or management of depression, diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue, allergies, arthritis, psoriasis, eczema and low thyroid.
In Eat Fat Lose Weight, Gittleman has brought together do-able and delicious Smart Fat tips, tricks and recipes for complete weight loss and wellness. In each chapter, you’ll find targeted foods, supplements and lifestyle intervention suggestions—many of which she originally researched for concerned readers as the nutrition columnist for First for Women magazine. Gittleman expands on that research and makes the solutions even easier and more complete with the emergence of all the latest Smart Fats like omega-7, pine nut oil and hemp seed oil, as well as the Smart Fat staples—coconut, GLA, fish, flax, cream and butter. You’ll also find smart sips, seasonings and sweeteners to round out your culinary creativity.
As Gittleman says in her introduction, “I want each of you to be able to lose weight, feel great, and experience the highest degree of well-being, vitality & radiance no matter what diet you are doing or what has gone before.”
