Good Fat, Bad Fat : Escape Fat Phobia and Learn the Truth! (Paperback) (Romy Dolle)
about this item
The headlines are everywhere—fat is healthy! But this is a different message than you’ve heard your entire life, so some resistance is understandable. Even if you’re on board with increasing fat intake, how do you know which kinds are nutritious and which are dangerous? And if you were raised on margarine and lean meat, how do you learn how to cook all this rich and delicious food?
In Good Fat, Bad Fat, Romy Dollé lays out all the problems with our fat phobia, and how it’s leading to stress, depression, and obesity. She teaches us which fats we should avoid, and gives detailed information on sourcing all the good fats. With scientific explanations throughout by Torsten Albers, MD, the book clearly explains how fat works in your body, how you can burn it for energy, and why it’s so critical to health and longevity to eat a high-fat diet.
With a clear understanding of the health benefits of good fat and the dangers of bad fat, Dollé then provides dozens of rich, delicious, satisfying recipes for all the best fat sources. From asparagus noodles with walnut pesto to crispy chicken wings and chocolate mousse, Good Fat, Bad Fat gives you new and exciting recipes—even for old low-fat favorites.
Each recipe is macronutrient-balanced (with accurate macronutrient statistics) to promote efficient fat metabolism and weight management. There is also a section to guide you into a ketogenic eating strategy, and meal plans to help you develop a diverse and appealing menu.
Good Fat, Bad Fat is perfect for those looking to break out of the fat phobia paradigm once and for all, and spread the word to family and friends—perhaps over a delicious, home-cooked, good-fat meal. The creative and accessible recipes will appeal to everyone—whether you’re just getting used to eating fat or you’re a veteran primal eater!
