In this new addition to the fast-fix diet book shelf, Enig and Fallon attempt to correct what they see as Americans' false belief that tropical fats and oils (such as coconut and palm) are unhealthy, asserting that those fats (and coconut, especially) are beneficial saturated fats that should be more heavily incorporated into our diets. Enig, a biochemist and nutritionist, along with Fallon, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation (a non-profit dedicated to helping people implement healthy approaches to nutrition), say "high-fat, low-carb really works," eschewing the disastrous effects a high-fat diet can have on a person's heart. They like the Atkins diet, but say it doesn't take advantage of the "metabolism-boosting" powers of coconut oil. Their approach skews more toward traditional diets and away from modern diets (e.g., chose animal fats over vegetable oils; raw or fermented dairy products instead of pasteurized ones). Though based on considerable research, the book is somewhat off-putting. Its emphasis on one ingredient-in the recipe section, for example, one sample menu has readers eating a dish with coconut in it seven times in one day-seems nutritionally suspicious.

As a former Weight Watchers leader who had lost 79 pounds on Weight Watchers, I had been taught, and myself taught others, that in a healthy diet you could expect a weight loss of just one pound per week. Then the third week into the program, I didn't lose anything, not even inches. Same thing for the fourth week. 2 days before the approach of the end of my 5th week weigh in, I weighed myself and found exactly what I'd suspected - nothing lost AGAIN.
So I put my analytical brain to the test and started to sleuth out the problem:
What were my portion sizes, had they grown too large? No
What about my calorie count, had it exceeded 2,500 calories per day? No
What about my oil, was I eating enough coconut oil? Yes
Then I remembered a video I'd watched called Cereal Killers, and Prof Tim Noakes and his High Fat Low Carb Diet. I discovered he'd written a book about it, and after investigation discovered that what had happened, in fact, during weeks 3, 4, and 5, were that my CARBOHYDRATE intake had increased. Not a lot, but I was eating oatmeal every day for breakfast.
So I began adding in Prof Noakes' guidelines for keeping carbohydrates between 25g and 50 g per day, and for the last 2 days prior to my Week 5 weight in, I kept them low, and didn't have oatmeal for breakfast. Result? I lost another 2 pounds at week 5 weigh in. IN 2 DAYS. Contrast that with the full week it took on this program for each of the first two weeks.
I have continued Banting (the diet that Prof Noakes recommends) and have continued to lose a pound a day for the past 4 days.
Can I recommend this book? ABSOLUTELY!!! If you are new to healthy eating, if you have degenerative diseases that need addressing, BUY IT, implement the Health Recovery strategies and you'll be loving yourself for it!
BUT, if you are like me and suffer from carbohydrate intolerance (and everyone is different, everyone metabolizes carbohydrates differently), then consider keeping a keen eye on your carbohydrate intake and make sure it stays between 25g and 50g per day, and you'll have much more success.
Prof Tim Noakes wrote the book 'The Real Meal Revolution' and I highly recommend it as well as Eat Fat, Lose Fat to anyone who is seriously interested in improving their health for the better.
