Backed by solid scientific research and a clear understanding of the biochemistry of the body, EAT FAT, LOSE WEIGHT proves that dietary fat is not the enemy in the battle to lose weight. Instead, Americans are suffering from a massive dietary fat deficiency —a deficiency that is contributing not only to obesity, but also to the rise of such conditions as breast cancer, hyperactivity, diabetes, arthritis, PMS, and menopausal discomforts.
In this breakthrough book, Ann Louise Gittleman will show you:
which fats are fundamental to your health and vitality
how much fat your body needs
which fats can help you actually lose weight and keep it off
Ann Louise establishes the importance of the omega fats—including fish and flaxseed oils, olive oil and avocado, and evening primrose and borage seed oils—and shows how they not only burn excess body fat, but also lower cholesterol, heal depression and allergies, increase energy and alertness, and boost the immune system.
Featuring a seven-day EAT FAT, LOSE WEIGHT eating plan and tips to help you stop dieting forever, this revolutionary book is the essential resource for anyone interested in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
