Trick or Treat? Trick please...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trick and Treat: How Healthy Eating is Making Us Ill (Paperback)
... because the Treat will make me fatter!
This book is BRILLIANT - I highly recommend it! I read this book after 'The Sugar Fix' and before I read 'The Diet Delusion'. I am glad I read these books in this order as I think the level of detail/complexity in each book follows this order (Hope that makes sense).
After reading this book you will have a different view on food and health. I knew that people have been tricked into taking lots of drugs for lots of ailments long before reading this but it's great when a good book confirms what you thought.
Barry Groves deserves an award (as does Gary Taube's) for the work in nutrition research. It all becomes so clear when you are asked certain questions and presented with the fact's and science and you are able to draw your own conclusions. In fact, I can't believe it has taken me sooo long to see it.
I am currently enjoying a high protein/high fat diet and with weight lifting only muscle, not fat, has developed while my wife has lost weight. This is after dropping carbs from the diet and eating a shed load of eggs, cheese, butter, FULL FAT milk, beef etc... you get the idea.
I urge you to read this book and pass the info on to friends and family if you really care about them. Don't expect them to believe you though!
