First off, I read ALOT of nutrition and health books. It’s what I do. With that said many are very informative and helpful to myself personally and in my practice, BUT none really make me laugh. I read this book and felt both informed and entertained. That takes a special kind of writer and Liz is that girl. I appreciated Liz’s humor because it helps to bring the information to life.
There are four chapters: 1) Fat, 2) Protein, 3) Carbs, and 4) Nutrients. In each chapter Liz reveals many nutritional myths or “dogma” that has plagued our lives for far too long. She breaks down the facts in a fun way and describes how we got to those “myths” in the first place. She then lets us know the truth which is backed by science and history- not just an opinion. I am so happy that this truth is getting out there to more and more people, especially since I was taught most of the dogma in my education as an RD. It’s time we (all RDs and health care professionals) simply embrace REAL FOOD.
The book covers various topics that I’m sure will interest you. These topics are generally on trial in the nutrition world:
“In the course of just over a century, we’ve tossed away real, nourishing foods, often in favor of factory-made industrial products that somehow claim to be better than the real thing.”
“Processed crap isn’t good. Whether we’re talking crop oils, low-fat processed foods, so-called health foods with a long list of unpronounceable ingredients, or crop-based carbohydrates processed into packaged cereal, pasta, and bread, the processed stuff is a profit-first, health-last proposition. The companies that make them have lied to us and tried their darnedest to hide the truth. Not cool.”
“Real, unprocessed foods- including animal products- are the fuel that makes us awesome, and there’s no substitute in a box, bag, or capsule. We don’t have to fear real food. We can outsmart the status quo. None of that is baggage or burdensome. It’s tasty, rebellious, and it’s fun.”
I know personally that Liz is the real deal. She not only eats real food and nourishes her skin and body with real ingredients (see here), but she is a genuinely real woman who is simply passionate about helping people find healing. She has no hidden agenda. Those are the people I choose to support- and I hope you will too! To find out more about Liz and all she is involved with go here.
