Product Description

Product Description

Worry about cholesterol. Avoid red meat. Eat whole grains. Could it all be a lie?

We live in an era of health hype and nutrition propaganda, and we’re suffering for it. Decades of avoiding egg yolks, choosing margarine over butter, and replacing the real foods of our ancestors with low-fat, processed, packaged substitutes have left us with an obesity epidemic, ever-rising rates of chronic disease, and, above all, total confusion about what to eat and why. This is a tragedy of misinformation, food industry shenanigans, and cheap calories disguised as health food. It turns out that everything we've been told about how to eat is wrong. Fat and cholesterol are harmful to your health? Nope--they are crucial to your health. "Whole grains" are health food? Not even close. Counting calories is the way to lose weight? Not gonna work--nutrients are what matter. Nutrition can come from a box, bag, or capsule? Don’t count on it! In "Eat the Yolks", Liz Wolfe debunks all these myths and more, revealing what’s behind the lies and bringing the truth about fat, cholesterol, protein, and carbs to light. You'll be amazed at the tall tales we've been told in the name of "healthy eating." With wit and grace, Wolfe makes a compelling argument for a diet based on Paleo foods. She takes us back to the foods of our ancestors, combining the lessons of history with those of modern science to uncover why real, whole food--the kind humans ate for thousands of years before modern nutrition dogma led us astray--holds the key to amazing health and happy taste buds. In "Eat the Yolks", Liz Wolfe doesn't just make a case for eating the whole egg. She uncovers the shocking lies we've been told about fat, cholesterol, protein, carbs, and calories and brings us the truth about which foods are healthy--and which foods are really harming us. You'll learn truths like: -- fat and cholesterol are crucial, not harmful... and why -- "whole grains" are processed foods... and what to eat instead -- counting calories is a waste of energy... and what we actually should be tracking -- all animal products are not created equal... and which ones we truly need -- nutrition doesn't come in a box, bag, or capsule... and why there's no substitute for real food!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on Paleo nutrition out there! 10 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hands down this has got to be one of the best books about nutrition there is. In my time I have dabbled with raw-foodism, vegetarianism, veganism all in the pursuit of health until a few years ago I was diagnosed with severe gluten intolerance and it changed my focus so I set out to research all I could. You could say I'm somewhat of a nutrition nerd and my bookshelves are literally lined with books on nutrition and diet. I have read a lot of the Paleo books out there and whilst many are very good, this one is simply superb. It is informative, interesting and surprisingly funny. If you want to understand the HOW and WHAT to eat (in terms of recipes and meal plans) this isn't the book, I'd recommend the excellent Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo, but if you truly want to understand the WHY's to eating a Paleo real food diet and understand the prevailing myths that generates so much fear around what to eat then there isn't a better book out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Paleo Beginners Book 20 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read so many books on Paleo over the years and bought this one because of the reviews. When I started reading I was disappointed as I didn't think I would learn anything after reading books much heavier than this. However I was totally wrong. I have learnt plenty. The book is written in a lighthearted manner but make no mistake, I think if I was a vegetarian I would certainly start worrying. This book would be perfect for someone just starting to dip a toe into the reasoning behind Paleo. I veered from Paleo to Vegetarian to junk several times purely because I had been indoctrinated into the cholesterol rubbish, and meat causing cancer myth and was scared I would do myself harm. I have only been eating Paleo for one month but already feel so much better. Mind you to be fair I had gone from a total junk food diet. However there are no cravings eating this way, whereas on any other diet I have ever been on I have had dreadful cravings and always ended up in chocolate, doughnuts, cake etc. I have a good feeling that this way of eating will be mine for life. Plus as an added bonus the weight is coming off too. Plus I am sleeping so much better now.
