About the Author

Matt Stone is the founder of 180DegreeHealth. He is an independent health researcher and author of more than 10 books, including multiple titles that have made it to #1 in their respective categories on Amazon. Most of his research has drawn him towards metabolic rate and how many basic functions (digestion, reproduction, aging, immunity, inflammation, mood, circulation, sleep) perform better when metabolic rate is optimized. He is most notable for his criticisms of extreme diets and exposing many false diet industry claims, as well as his works on raising metabolic rate through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. His views and findings are discussed exhaustively on the site and cataloged in many of Stone's books available for sale through Amazon.

More About the Author

"With a high metabolic rate, EVERYTHING works better."

Matt Stone is an independent health researcher, #1 Amazon bestselling author of way too many books, and the founder of 180DegreeHealth, a controversial website that has challenged the status quo on health with a combination of cutting-edge science, radical common sense, and gratuitous 80's references since 2006.

In his most popular books, Eat for Heat and the Diet Recovery series, Stone lays out explicit instructions for achieving a high metabolic rate, the details of which are Stone's greatest discovery in his decade of intensive research.

With an increase in metabolic rate, thousands of Stone's readers and clients have reported improvements in a vast array of disorders: constipation, hair loss, low libido, acid reflux, insomnia, anxiety, cold hands and feet, frequent urination, allergies, skin conditions, chronic infections, infertility, and countless others, all while eating common, enjoyable, comfort foods to their heart's content.

What should you read first? Scroll down the page and get started with Eat for Heat and Diet Recovery 2, available as eBooks, paperbacks, and audiobooks narrated by Stone himself.

Sorry if/that this is a novel. I can't begin to express how grateful I am for stumbling upon the work of Matt Stone, and how startlingly different my live would have been had I not been so lucky as to encounter his blog and his books. The least I can do is share my story so more people will come into contact with his advice and turn their lives and health around.

I have had an unhealthy relationship with food since middle school, when despite being one of the tiniest students, I tried to eat as little as possible, giving away all of my food at lunch and insisting that my mom make me only half portions. I was embarrassed to eat in front of people and afraid of getting fat. This continued to high school where I proceeded to avoid eating, and ate only low-fat food, if I was eating.

I came to college and continued these habits but gained weight anyways...about 8-10 lbs. on my 5'5" 120lb body. I had great body composition but I was an idiot and felt that anything about 120 lbs. was disgusting so I FREAKED out, measuring and weighing my self daily, or even more than once daily. I plotted this all on graphs. I would break down and cry about how fat and gross I was about once a week. I avoided going out to social events because I knew I would have to either eat/drink or make an excuse not to do so. I had no social life and avoided by friends since I felt that I looked so awful.

I started doing CrossFit in which I made petty gains in strength since I wasn't eating. I ate even less, switching to paleo, which lead me eventually into a low and then zero carb diet. I was eating about 700 calories per day in only meat and (few) green vegetables and writing down everything (down to a 1/16 tsp.) in a food log which I viewed as my success or failure for the day.

This book reads like it was written by a painfully smart junior high student.
I mean, really. It has some ideas that gave me pause, but there are so many grammatical errors, unnecessary vulgarities and a slight tone of condescension to detract from whatever good that can be found here. I can appreciate some good, raunchy dude humor as much as the next tomboy, but for the most part that gets put away while in nerd mode, (dealing with medicine, health, business, etc.) as it should be. A little unexpected errant joke is ok here or there, in this book it makes you wish you could tell him to tone it down or shut up!

Spoiler alert: the main premise here is that most people are suffering some degree of hyponatremia (literal "water intoxication" or overdilution of vital bodily fluids) and that causes a host of health problems, slow metabolism, icy hands/feet, to name just a few. The book professes that your blood needs to stay concentrated to perform optimally, your cells need only a certain level of hydration. Too much, and you literally "dilute" your system. Hyponatremia is extremely common in health nuts/endurance athletes (I knew that before reading this book), and it happens more easily than you may think, especially if you follow the "drink your body weight in water" propaganda ON TOP of eating foods containing a high volume of water. It gave me pause when he pointed out that this is virtually non-existent in animals, even those who live near water. I do agree with the author's observation that the public lives in a needless state of perpetual panic and obsession about hydration to the point of overdoing it. Stand-up comic Lewis Black says the same thing, but his take is 1,000 times more enjoyable to listen to than this author's.

As a licensed healthcare provider, I have seen too many patients who have ruined their health by trying to be "healthy." It seems people have lost their way. While there are some current trends back toward sanity and away from such lunacy as strict "paleo" diets, ketogenic diets (which might work well for a few but not for many), fruitarian diets, vegan diets, and other types of crazy, there are far too many people hurting themselves in their obsessive and neurotic search for health.

If you are on one of those diets and feel shitty, then guess what? You're not "de-toxing"; you don't need to go through a dozen or more "herxheimer die-offs"; You aren't in a 'transition' phase -- one that never seems to transition. You're killing yourself by being stupid.

Enter Matt Stone. I've read a fair amount on his site lately and have ordered a few of his e-books mainly because I think he's funny, he's a good synthesizer of knowledge, and he's on to something that few people (Ray Peat, etc) seem to get, which is this little secret: Metabolism is king.

It' s been my personal experience, so Matt's ideas match what I have seen in myself and in many of my patients.

Most of the dietary dogmas that are popular these days are sure-fire ways to send you into catabolic metabolic shutdown. It's no surprise that we have an epidemic of thyroid problems and people feeling just plain shitty.

Eat for Heat covers important information about how to keep your metabolic rate up. Matt is also one of the first people to really "get" the over-hydration crises and how American's have been screwing themselves by the whole "drink til you pee clear" nonsense and other "hydration" related dogma that has no historical precedent up until a few decades ago.
