From the Back Cover
'Scientists labelled fat the enemy. Why they were wrong.' Time magazine
We've been told for years that eating fat is bad for us, that it is a primary cause of high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity. The Real Meal Revolution debunks this lie and shows us the way back to restored health through eating what human beings are meant to eat.
This book will radically transform your life by showing you clearly, and easily, how to take control of not just your weight, but your overall health, too - through what you eat. And you can eat meat, seafood, eggs, cheese, butter, nuts . . . often the first things to be prohibited or severely restricted on most diets. This is Banting, or Low-Carb, High-Fat (LCHF) eating, for a new generation, solidly underpinned by years of scientific research and by now incontrovertible evidence.
This extraordinary book, already a phenomenal bestseller, overturns the conventional dietary wisdom of recent decades that placed carbohydrates at the base of the supposedly healthy-eating pyramid and that has led directly to a worldwide epidemic of obesity and diabetes. Both a startling revelation, and as old as humanity itself, it offers a truly revolutionary approach to healthy eating that explodes the myth, among others, that cholesterol is bad for us. This is emphatically not just another unsustainable, quick-fix diet or a fad waiting to be forgotten, but a long-delayed return to the way human beings are supposed to eat.See all Product description

I came across a website that went detail about low-carb, high-fat diets and why our diets should change. I hunted all over the internet to try to find decent low-carb, high-fat cookbooks and there are not many out there that are TRUE low-carb, high-fat cookbooks (some say they are but when you learn more about what to eat and what is bad for you, some of the books had recipes with ingredients that should be cut out of your diet, so not true books).
My husband and I have tried quite a few recipes now out of this book and another book Tom Kerridge Dopamine Diet Cookbook (which is basically low-carb, high-fat diet too) and I must say that we feel happier, healthier and fuller. I work full time and rarely manage to exercise, I was part of a gym but cancelled after 6 months as I only managed to go a handful of times and I believed that been part of a gym I would force myself to go and I would lose weight, but talking to a sports science nutritionist I learnt something new that I will pass onto all of you that I thought was interesting. Apparently to lose weight we need to concentrated more on the diet than exercise, I will be honest I thought it was 50/50 diet and exercise but apparently diet is 70% and exercise is 30%, so you could eat rubbish and exercise every day for hours and you will not lose as much weight than if you concentrated just on the diet.
I would never have believed this fact if I hadn't have tried it myself. So I cut out the carbs and thought I would try it for 2 weeks just to see if it works and to see how I feel. I lost 6lbs in two weeks (to be honest I don't want to lose too much weight, I wanted to get to where I was before I had my daughter (by losing a stone and a half) and just trying to tone up. Up to now I have lost just over a stone in weight, no exercise (after the initial 6lbs, I noticed that the weight came off 1lb - 1lb.5 a week). I went on holiday abroad for a week all inclusive so I had gained half a stone, but a week and a half back on the diet I was back where I were before I left.
One important thing to realise that even though I say diet, this is not a diet or a fad. This is a life changer. We are so used to having chips with meals or pasta dishes or bread with every meal that we struggle to get our head around how are we supposed to cope by cutting these out of our lives, but believe me once you read this book and cook the recipes it was so easy to carry on. Seeing and feeling the effects that is good, whole natural foods can do for you and your body is quite amazing. It is initially a little expensive to swap and change all the foods you are used to but do it in bits and then do what I did and cleared out of the kitchen cupboards, all the foods we should not be having I threw out and then filled them with everything that is good, and if the temptation isn't there you are not likely to slip back into the bad habits of carbs.
So I hope that my review was a good insight as to how I found the "diet" and the book and I hope that it helps you make the decision as to whether you want to change your life for the better, and if so this book is the best start that you can give yourself.
At times, I modify a few recipes, as I have a vegan and vegetarian in my family. So far, this has been very successful.
