“Eat Fat Get Thin” – Listen & ReadAvailability: In Stock
Find out how you can select high-quality high-fat foods to improve your health and control your weight.
Americans have been admonished to avoid fat if we want to lose weight. So they turned to highly-processed low-fat foods that are full of sugar. These foods are supposed to offer convenience, but they are not the healthiest choices.
After all, is it a coincidence that we are fatter than before? More than two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese.
How to Get Thin:
Dr. Mark Hyman explains what went wrong and why we need to eat fat–not sugar–if we want to get thin. According to Dr. Hyman, we’d be better off treating sugar (especially sugar mixed with fat) as if it were a recreational drug (like tequila or Scotch), to be enjoyed only occasionally and in limited quantities.
Find out why many nutrition experts are reversing their position on fat, and why the quality of the fat we eat is so important.
Getting Thin on a Budget:
How can you follow the recommended diet on a budget? And does it really make a difference in just three weeks? Dr. Hyman addresses these questions and more in his book, Eat Fat Get Thin and during the interview.
