For one thing from this book, I learned there are people out there who pay attention to complete versus incomplete proteins. It has been 50 years since talking about that went out of style.
There is an explanation of ATP which is easier to understand for a lay person than the complicated explanation in nutrition courses.
I learned that the fat soluble vitamins act synergisticly. That has been known (and ignored) for probably 60 plus years about B vitamins, but I did not know it about oil soluble ones. I should have known.
Somehow I had missed in my reading that there are vitamin D receptors in every cell throughout the body. Well, for heaven's sake! No wonder we keep discovering things we need D for - above and beyond seeing to it our bones get their calcium.
In other words, don't let the breezy conversational style of this book put you off. We can all learn from it.
This is the book I've been waiting for, the perfect way to introduce a curious person to a real food lifestyle. I'd recommend Practical Paleo for any kitchen as a reference guide and recipe inspiration or Cate Shanahan's work for those who just really need to see "MD" after the author's name, but this is the book for the hook. This is the book for the friend who is jumping on a plane for a business trip or the busy mom who has 15 minutes to read while her kid is in dance class. It is concise, but every word counts. The approach is totally relatable, fun to read, and beautifully executed. This is absolutely THE book to get people to understand why I eat so much bacon and get militant about where my meat comes from.
As an educator, I love how this book encourages people to toss the rules and truly understand health and nutrition. I also love how it puts "paleo" in a positive light, but isn't rigid paleo propaganda. This is so necessary while paleo is shifting more to the mainstream- teach and learn, don't just listen and follow.
However, I am giving this book 3 stars because I cannot say that I loved it. While making a book informative and entertaining is appreciated, the writing style was somewhat distracting. The pop culture references and humor inserted every other paragraph was just a little too much for me. I prefer straight and to the point, which better suits my personal learning style.
I do want to note that different from what I'm used to does not mean bad. I would recommend this is as good read for someone who is new to the lifestyle, and would like to know more about WHY changing your beliefs and eating habits is necessary. The details are eye-opening. I plan to pass my copy along to some friends I think would appreciate the humor.
In her new book, Eat The Yolks, author Liz Wolfe takes on the diet dictators, and explains why they're blatantly WRONG. Take a seat on the Yolk Train, and buckle up tight because Liz is gonna rock your world! You'll not only learn why eating grass-fed pastured red meat is a health food, why you should have a little broccoli with your butter, and why eating egg-white only omelets is a bad idea, Liz takes the time to explain how to do a little digging of your own. You'll learn how to take a closer look at all of those "claims" and "studies" so that you can decide for yourself if bacon is indeed enemy #1, or if, that low-fat "healthy" turkey bacon is actually what is causing you to feel inflamed and in pain.
In the process you'll also learn how we all ended up here in the first place, why government directed programs and subsidies are making us sick, fat and stupid, and why you can leave the guilt at the door while you enjoy every single morsel of that bacon wrapped filet mignon, with a side of garlic mashed potatoes and butter slathered sauteed veggies.
...And you'll be thoroughly entertained while re-programming your brain!
There's nothing like a dry and boring book to help you get to sleep at night, so be forewarned, you won't want to keep this on your nightstand. Full of witty humor and smile inducing examples, Liz will keep you thoroughly entertained while giving dietary dogma a serious beat-down.
