Almost everything that most people believe about dietary fat is untrue and it is costing many people dearly. The no-fat or torturously low-fat diet is not only ineffective, it is also unhealthy, steering dieters away from good fats and towards bad ones. Eating highly process, low-fat, high-carb foods can contribute to everything from premature wrinkling and depression to hormonal dysfunction. Good fats, on the other hand are powerful weight loss tools. Dieters feel full longer, snack less, take in fewer calories and enjoy increased immune system function, better cognitive function and gain protection against catastrophic diseases like stroke, cancer and heart disease. Low -carb guru Fran McCullough dispels the misconceptions surrounding fats and reveals the simple secrets to eating well and lossing weight. GOOD FAT features 100 tasty and healthy recipes that focus on fresh ingredients and combine low carbohydrates with beneficial fats. GOOD FAT is the only book to address this key component of a low-carb lifestyle, delivering news on how to unlock improved health.
