Happy July 4th! Celebrate your Independence, break away from the conventional thinking about fat. Eat fat – it is good for you. Of course it needs to be the right kinds of fat. Today I offer two books that provide both scientific evidence, real life experience, and rational thinking as to what fats we need and why. Eat Fat, Lose Weight by Ann Louise Gittleman and Eat Fat, Lose Fat by Dr. Mary Enig and Sally Fallon both explain how we don’t get fat from eating fat, and in fact eating fat will help us lose weight!
