The Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook by Mark Hyman (Cookbook Review)
About the book-
The companion cookbook to Dr. Hyman's revolutionary Eat Fat, Get Thin, with more than 175 delicious, nutritious, heart- and waist-friendly recipes.
Dr. Hyman's Eat Fat, Get Thin radically changed the way we view dietary fat, and proved that the key to losing weight and keeping it off is to eat ample amounts of good fats. Now, Dr. Hyman shares more than 175 mouthwatering recipes to help you incorporate these good fats into your diet and continue on your path to wellness. With easy-to-prepare recipes for every meal--featuring nuts, coconut oil, avocados, and lots of other superfoods you thought were "off limits"--you can achieve fast and sustained weight loss. Your health is a life-long journey, and THE EAT FAT, GET THIN COOKBOOK helps make that journey both do-able and delicious.
When I saw this book was written by Mark Hyman, I was interested in it immediately. Fat has got a lot of unfounded bad press over the last decade or so. I think a lot of people just don't understand good fat vs. bad fat and that your body NEEDS fat to be it's ultimate best. This is a companion cookbook that goes with Hyman's Eat Fat, Get Thin book, but without having read that book I think you will still get the overall point of it summarized here at the beginning of the cookbook. The book has a detailed chart about what fats you should eat which I think anyone who reads the book will find extremely helpful. There is also some great information on what kind of vitamins you might consider taking to take your health to the next level. I like that there are so many recipes in the book that there will be at least a few things everyone would enjoy. It gives many options for great recipes and I think that is the main goal of a good cookbook, that there are so many great things in the book, no one will feel like it isn't for them. My favorite section is the breakfast section because there are tons of savory options and too often there is a focus on sweetness for our first meal of the day. I could easily eat any of the things from the breakfast section for any meal. I think anyone who wants to eat well and cares about their health will enjoy The Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook so I recommend this book to anyone wanting to eat well.
