The Real Meal Revolution will radically transform your life by showing you clearly, and easily, how to take control of not just your weight, but your overall health, too, through what you eat. And just look what you can eat! Meat, seafood, eggs, cheese, butter, duck fat, nuts - usually the first things to be prohibited or severely restricted on most diets. This is Banting, or low-carb high-fat (LCHF) eating, for a new generation, now solidly underpinned by years of scientific research and by now incontrovertible evidence.
This extraordinary book overturns the conventional dietary wisdom of recent decades that places carbohydrates at the base of the supposedly healthy-eating pyramid and which has led to a worldwide epidemic of obesity and diabetes. It is both a startling revelation, and as old as humanity itself. In its place, The Real Meal Revolution offers a truly revolutionary approach to healthy eating that explodes the myth, among others, that cholesterol is bad for you. This is emphatically not just another unsustainable diet or a fad waiting to be forgotten, but a return to the way human beings are supposed to eat.
At the same time as losing weight, you will have more energy, feel no hunger, sleep better and enjoy better health in every respect, most tellingly in better blood-glucose and insulin readings (as well as helping to prevent Type-2 diabetes, the diet offers the only cure for this supposedly incurable disease). In addition, your mental focus will be improved and your athletic performance, too (author Jonno Proudfoot, together with Thane Williams, recently became one of the first people to swim from Mozambique to Madagascar, a distance of 460 km).
Renowned scientist Professor Tim Noakes, bestselling nutritionist Sally-Ann Creed and Top Ten-rated restaurant chef Jonno Proudfoot have combined their extensive experience and research into a definitive guide that is both a beautifully illustrated cookbook, packed with nearly 100 simple, delicious and beautifully photographed recipes, and also as a cogent argument in support of a radical, sustainable approach to healthy eating.
About the Authors
Sally-Ann Creed (the Nutritionist) spent her early life sick with chronic asthma, sinusitis and panic disorder, undergoing many operations on her sinuses, and spending thirteen years as a 'victim' of panic disorder and agoraphobia. Through an adjustment to her diet, she regained her health and qualified as a Nutritional Therapist (Post-Graduate Diploma in Clinical Nutrition, Australia). Her goal is to help others experience the same results. Her story is relayed in her bestselling book Let Food Be Your Medicine - an easy-to- understand guide to healthy living which has sold over 45,000 copies.
Professor Tim Noakes (the Scientist) is a widely respected Professor of Exercise and Sports Science at the University of Cape Town. He has run over 70 marathons and ultra- marathons and is the author of The Lore of Running, Challenging Beliefs and Waterlogged. After his latest book, Tim entered the dietary sphere, challenging the science behind obesity, coronary heart disease and heart attacks. Subsequently he has dedicated his life to opening people's eyes to the myth of low-fat eating and the nutritional and environmental crisis it has led us to. In this book, Tim unleashes the science behind the research he has been conducting.
Jonno Proudfoot (the Chef) trained and worked in a five-times Top Ten-rated restaurant early in his career, later moving through a variety of food and wine establishments before finding his passion in Paleo and LCHF cookery. Since the birth of his interest in performance food and nutrition he has co-hosted 52 episodes of award-winning children's cooking show, What's Your Flava. He also starred in the TV reality cooking series Ultimate Braai [Barbecue] Master in 2013. On 23 March 2014, Jonno and his friend Thane Williams became the first people to swim from Mozambique to Madagascar, taking 24 days to cover an incredible 460km, setting a world record for the longest open-ocean unassisted stage-swim of all time.
