Eat, drink and shrink during the holidays!
As many of you may or may not know, I am a Columbia University trained nutritionist, award winning New York Times bestselling author of 30 books, wife, mother to a terrific 31-year-old stepdaughter, functional and integrative medicine advocate, former music teacher, model and go-go dancer (yes), and pioneer.
I have been on the front lines of health and healing now for well over 30 years warning how low fat can make you fat and why the right fats are the key to igniting effortless weight loss, crushing sugar cravings, stoking energy, promoting longevity, and insuring overall good health.
You see, unlike so many others who write about fats today, I was actually there at the beginning of the fat-free, no-to-low fat craze. Back in the early 80s I was the director of the Pritikin Longevity Center in Santa Monica, California. I saw firsthand the promises and pitfalls of a high carb/fat free diet program including weight gain, feeling hungry all the time and problems with hair, skin, nails, thyroid and the immune system.
Ever since 1988 and the publication of my first book, I have been a lone voice in the nutrition wilderness condemning fat-free, carb rich diets. Since then my work has been highly criticized by conventional dietitians, doctors, and newspaper journalists who believed that fats should be demonized and carbohydrates reigned supreme.
I was even later profiled on the prime time news magazine show 20/20. But just as steel is forged by fire, I remained true to my beliefs while so many of my more conventional colleagues were full of condemnation and doubt. All of this made me grow stronger, more resilient and more determined than ever to get the truth out.
So, you can just imagine how very gratified—as well as vindicated—I feel to finally see that my message about fats is becoming mainstream and is even touted as “new news.”
And that’s why I decided to revise and update my 1999 book Eat Fat Lose Weight, launching December 1, 2015 (now available for pre-order). It fills in where my popular Fat Flush left off since I have now had the advantage of over 15 years of so much more expanded research and personal clinical experience.
Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working with literally thousands of clients from A-list celebrities, singers, songwriters, retired athletes, fashion designers, entire ballet troupes, and men and women like you and me.
I wish I had this guide in hand when my clients were experiencing all of their concerns especially before during and after the holidays when they typically gained anywhere from five to 15 lbs!
I discovered that hormones—which govern metabolism, stress, hunger, and even reproduction—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 just one dietary secret—the smart fats!
You will discover how fats—the body’s preferred fuel—have been so maliciously portrayed for the past 60 years.
So now it’s high time for YOU to become intimately familiar with ALL the smart fats that deserve a prominent place at breakfast, lunch and 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 and eczema.
And then, there’s the underrated and completely ignored bile connection to Eat Fat Lose Weight.
You will be as amazed as I was, to uncover how bile—the body’s real key to digest and assimilate fats is linked to a myriad of diverse symptoms—from the inability to lose weight to dry skin, constipation, hemorrhoids, varicose veins and nausea.
Fortunately, all of these varying signs of inadequate bile can be easily remedied. I will show you how—whether you still have your gallbladder…or not.
It seems that modern day medicine has also conveniently forgotten what even our early health pioneers were aware of: the amount of bile your body manufactures is directly linked to how you digest fats AND the amount of toxins you can safely eliminate and excrete from your system.
In Eat Fat Lose Weight I have brought together some of the most practical do-it-yourself tips and tricks for lasting weight control that I originally researched for concerned readers as the nutrition columnist for First for Women magazine–where I worked with some of the most savvy editors and freelance journalists in the business for nearly 10 years.
I want you all to feel great, lose the weight, and have a balanced life in all aspects.
As my good friend, the witty and deliciously irreverent pediatrician, the late Dr. Lendon Smith, would have said, “Everybody should read this book, even doctors who are supposed to know everything.”
