For 26 years John Nicholson was a vegetarian, following a seriously healthy diet that included no cholesterol or animal fats but plenty of brown rice and lentils. His diet defined him. It was the one thing that was definably, unshakeably him throughout half a century. However, for 26 years John Nicholson was ill - tormented year after year by apparently untreatable IBS. He was eating the healthiest diet known to mankind yet his digestive system was breaking down. His illness was affecting his life so badly that eventually he and his partner considered doing the unthinkable - eating meat. The results were spectacular. 24 hours after eating meat, he was better. After 48 hours he was totally well. All his symptoms had gone - the IBS, the headaches, the mid-afternoon tiredness, achy knees - the lot. Even his eyesight improved to the point he no longer needed to use reading glasses. Twelve months on, he feels like a new person. The Meat Fix details John Nicholson's remarkable transformation with the characteristic wit and humour that saw his We Ate All the Pies nominated for the 2010 William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award. It is the story of how eating meat again after 26 vegetarian years changed his life powerfully for the better, and his quest to understand why the supposedly healthy diet he had existed on was actually damaging him. He is not a scientist and this is not your standard diet book. Rather it is an explanation of how Nicholson discovered what works for him and why we should all look at nutritional advice through a clear lens, not the warped prism of what has become conventional dietary advice over the past three decades. This is a fascinating, surprising, often hilarious and shocking journey of discovery.
