Product Description

In Toxic Fat Dr. Barry Sears reveals a revolutionary new understanding of obesity as a form of cancer and explains why inflammation caused by toxic fat, not excess weight, causes chronic disease. He describes why "eating less and exercising more" may never result in permanent fat loss and provides a clinically tested dietary program to reverse inflammation caused by toxic fat within 30 days using more than 100 easy-to-make meals and snacks.

Publisher's Description

Toxic Fat: When Good Fat Turns Bad, provides a revolutionary new understanding of our current obesity epidemic by showing that it can be viewed as a form of cancer to be treated using the clinically proven pathway to change the expression of your genes using food as a drug to rid your body of toxic fat.

For many of us, one of the first signs of toxic fat is the accumulation of excess body fat. In fact, obesity can be viewed as a form of "cancer" that is driven by toxic fat. However, only when this toxic fat begins to spread into the bloodstream does it begin to attack your other organs leading to early development of chronic disease. This is why some people can be overweight and be quite healthy, while others can be of normal weight and be quite sick. What ultimately determines your state of wellness is not your weight but the levels of toxic fat in your blood. This book changes forever how we look at the fat on our body and its impact on the future of health care in America.

    This is the best book I have read so far that explains that it's not really about the fat; it's about the inflammation (and how to get rid of it). Using the metaphor "The Perfect Nutritional Storm," Sears guides us through the history of how cheap food became available in the USA: not the good fruits and vegetables, but rather the cheap omega-6 fats and high glycemic carb foods. He points specifically to three factors that have created this health disaster in the USA. The nice thing about Dr. Sears' books is that you don't have to read the previous ones to understand the material because he always has nice summaries of his prior discoveries---so this book includes info on not only the inflammation issue, but also the Zone diet and fish oil. If you've ever been envious of someone who can eat all they want and not gain weight, you won't be after reading this book. It's not only the overweight who are susceptible to toxic problems. And an overweight person can even be healthy. Sears claims that the heaviest man in the world went on this diet and lost 400 pounds (at the time of the writing) and even long before reaching his ideal weight, achieved very ideal blood chemistry. Sears takes us on a tour of the hormones of hunger. You will better understand the delicate balance of what causes hunger when you read this.
