Product description

Review

‘A striking study … which may well change the way you eat. I, for one, won’t ever hesitate to order a steak again.’

Author: Erica Wagner Source: Financial Times

'Deeply disturbing in showing how overenthusiastic scientists, poor science, massive conflicts of interest, and politically driven policy makers can make deeply damaging mistakes … This book shook me … Teicholz has done a remarkable job.'

Source: Richard Smith , British Medical Journal

'Hugely refreshing … [The Big Fat Surprise] picks holes in old nutritional studies to reveal that a higher fat diet is almost certainly healthier in every way than one low in fat and high in carbohydrates. A fresh and thought-provoking outlook that will have you reaching for the creamy cheeses, sausages and bacon.'

Source: Daily Mail

'For decades we've been trying to eat less fat, particularly animal fat. We've replaced that fat with vegetable fat, carbohydrate and sugar. And now look at us. This book is about a scientific mistake. It's important.'

Source: Evening Standard

'Ms Teicholz’s book is a gripping read for anyone who has ever tried to eat healthily … This is not an obvious page-turner. But it is … The vilification of fat, argues Ms Teicholz, does not stand up to closer examination. She pokes holes in famous pieces of research ― the Framingham heart study, the Seven Countries study, the Los Angeles Veterans Trial, to name a few ― describing methodological problems or overlooked results, until the foundations of this nutritional advice look increasingly shaky.'

Source: The Economist

‘Someone ought to hand a copy of The Big Fat Surprise to the Department of Health.’

Author: Kate Spicer Source: Red

'[Teicholz] has a gift for translating complex data into an engaging forensic narrative … [The Big Fat Surprise] is a lacerating indictment of Big Public Health … More than a book about food and health or even hubris; it is a tragedy for our information age. From the very beginning, we had the statistical means to understand why things did not add up; we had a boatload of Cassandras, a chorus of warnings; but they were ignored, castigated, suppressed. We had our big fat villain, and we still do.'

Source: Wall Street Journal

‘There aren't enough superlatives to describe this journalistic tour de force. I read it twice: once for the information and again just for the writing.’

Author: Michael R. Eades, M.D., author of the New York Times bestseller Protein Power

‘At last the whole truth about the luscious foods our bodies really need!’

Author: Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of the New York Times bestseller Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

The Big Fat Surprise is refreshingly empowering. This wonderfully researched text provides the reader with total validation for welcoming healthful fats back to the table, paving the way for weight loss, health, and longevity.’

Author: David Perlmutter, MD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain
