By John R. Beatty on August 10, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is a useful and enlightening book as a companion to the author's book on "Fats that Heal and Fats that Kill." He touches on MCFA (Medium-Chain Fatty Acids) but you will not know it since his focus is on the Omega 3 and 6. Lauric acid is referred to but not the fact that it comes from Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. And, that is a shame. There is also the lack of attention to the value of lignans that are contained in well processed Flax Oil, which is a great source of Omega 3.

I believe Udo Erasmus is a knowledgeable person about health aspects of fats and oils. And Choosing the Right Fats provides a scattering of true and useful information. Someone who knows very little about the subject can possibly profit by reading it.

But this is not a book to buy, for reasons that I will explain. Not even one of the 34 used ones available as I write for $.01 + S&H. See below for an alternative recommendation.

FIRST, the book has precious little content. It is listed as having 64 pages. Thirty-five of those pages include relevant text. (The other twenty-nine pages are devoted to nine recipes that have at most a tangential relation to the subject.) Parts of the thirty-five relevant pages are occupied by 19 pictures, none of which add useful meaning, pages 24 and 35 contain what I regard as useless information (testimonials from athletes, and a long story of a racehorse in Sweden helped by recommended supplements), page 18 is essentially an ad for a weight-loss service offered by, apparently, one of the author's relatives, and half of page 37 is essentially an ad for a particular brand of kefir-maker (kefir is sorta like yogurt). That is to say, this $9.55 book doesn't have many useful words in it.

SECOND, there are many signs that the book was thrown together hurriedly with a virtual absence of editing.

For exampe, p39: "Symptoms of excessive intake can drowsiness, include and stomach upset. Too much oil on an empty stomach can cause nausea, the liver is reaction to over indulgence."

More important than such infelicities is that the book sometimes contradicts itself. For example, page 29 says, "Most adults require between 2 and 5 tablespoons (30 and 75ml) of oil blend per day...

Learned to drop all the oils sold
at my grocery store, except evoo (olive oil)
and to use that in moderation.

I bought this book many times and gifted it to my friends. Very enlightening. However, the author uses this to sell his other products. In that case, Udo, this book should be cheaper.
