How to outsmart bad health advice and make simple changes for long-lasting energy, weight loss and wellbeing.
Like most doctors, Peter Brukner was trained to believe that drugs and surgery are the answers to all medical problems – including the epidemics of obesity, diabetes and other ‘modern illnesses’ that are threatening our healthcare system and the life expectancy of future generations. For years he was dismissive of any ‘alternative’ diets or lifestyle changes.
But that all changed when, facing the double threat of obesity and diabetes himself, his research led to a shocking realisation that overturned a lot of the medical ‘truth’ he’d taken for granted: our dietary guidelines and food pyramid have no scientific basis. So he switched to a low-carb, healthy fat lifestyle – and dropped 13 kilos, lowered his insulin levels and drastically improved his liver function in just three months.
In A Fat Lot of Good Dr Brukner busts the dietary myths we’ve been living by for decades and gives you all the information you need, in as simple a way as possible, to live a longer, healthier and – most importantly – more enjoyable life.
