Leas' book makes it easy for anyone to have at least a fundamental grasp of the basics of fatty acid metabolism. She has condensed the works of over 20 reputable researchers and science writers into one book. When you finish her book, you will understand each of the various types of fatty acids in the diet and the unique and essential roles they play in managing our health. For a generation and a half, we trusted information that was not challenged until now. Anyone taking statins or those who think they have 'high' cholesterol, must read this book. After you read Leas' book you will want to make some major changes in your diet. Ones you did not think possible like drinking whole milk, eating eggs and using coconut oil. You may even come to regard crackers and rice cakes with the same contempt you once held for eggs and whole dairy. Keep the skin on the chicken and bake it in coconut oil; now you can enjoy whole real food again!
Thank you Connie Leas for your concise synopsis of information about fats. I now have something I can give to my clients to read that will help them let go of their fear of fat. The references in the back of the book are a great starting point for those who want more detailed information.
Chapter by chapter, as I got farther into the book, the more angry I became. As a person who has fought a weight problem all her life, I realize now that the advice I was given and the diet I was told to follow did nothing but make and keep me fat.
Ms. Leas' book is a must-read for anyone interested in weight-loss, better health, the control and prevention of type 2 diabetes, and the food we put into our mouths. Some people may not want to know, and will prefer to live in ignorance. Unfortunately, they will pay the price. The rest of us will read this book, and finally understand why we're not as healthy as we'd like to be.
"Fat It's Not What You Think," is a well written, easily understandable, very informative and at times humorous look at the vitally important subject of fat's role in a well nourished body. I've read several great books on the subject of fat. This book's author, Connie Leas presents new information that no other book that I've read contains. It also gives all the basic information necessary to understanding the various types of fats, their role in metabolic functions, the truth about cholesterol, saturated fat, trans fat, etcetera. I call it, "Fats 101."
