This book is built on a false/erroneous premise that the low fat diet initiated by the USDA in the 1960's based on the results of Ancel Keys (that saturated fat intake was directly correlated with heart disease risk), was a "miserable failure" according to the author. What he (doesn't tell you and) calls the "low fat diet" actually turns out to be the Standard American Diet which consists of daily fat calories between 30-70%. We all know that this "diet" largely based on animal proteins, fats, oils and processed carbohydrates is responsible for the epidemic of obesity, heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and many of the other chronic diseases known on this planet. The author then goes on to promote a high fat diet on anecdotal research studies that lack in scientific credibility.

The only true low fat diet (natural experiment) which is never mentioned by the author is that employed by Seven Day Adventists (Seven Day Adventist Study-2) in Loma Linda, California, rural Chinese as researched in The China Study by T. Colin Campbell PhD and in the Blue Zones Research highlighted by Dan Buettner (in his book of the same name where he found the healthiest and longest lived civilizations on the planet) who subsist on essentially a whole plant based diet where daily fat calories of 10-15%. In these populations many of the chronic western diseases are rare to nonexistent.

Much better and truthful reads are: The Starch Solution, Whole, The Food Revolution, The Cheese Trap, The Healthiest Diet on The Planet, The China Study, Prevent And Reverse Heart Disease; all promoting the amazing power of a whole plant based diets to halt and even reverse many current chronic diseases as well as make our food supply one that will no longer brutally mistreat and slaughter innocent animals as well as help reverse climate change.
