Coconut oil, red meat, butter. This powerful book dispels the myth that dietary fat is bad and shows that these saturated fats are actually essential to weight loss and health.

Based on over two decades of research, Eat Fat, Lose Fat flouts conventional wisdom by revealing that vegetable oils (such as corn and soybean) are in large part responsible for our national obesity and health crisis, while healthy fats such as those found in coconut oil may actually be the secret to long-term wellness.

Filled with delicious coconut oil-based recipes, this book features three programs that help you get started eating healthy fats to lose weight and achieve good health for a lifetime.

“If permanently losing weight while improving your health is a real goal, I highly recommend Eat Fat, Lose Fat.”—Dr. Joseph Mercola, bestselling author of The No-Grain Diet

“Dr. Mary Enig and Sally Fallon are two of the most important voices in the wellness revolution. Eat Fat, Lose Fat is a must read.”—Jordan S. Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Maker’s Diet
