Publisher Comments:

Fat is not the enemy!

Croissants. Brioche. Brie. To the American palate, these foods are fattening and oftentimes “forbidden.” Yet they are the regular staples of the French diet. And though almost half of all Americans are overweight, Frances obesity rate is at a low eight percent, while the French also boast fewer cases of stroke and heart disease. Its clear that Americas obsession with low-fat and fat-free foods has ultimately failed.

In The Fat Fallacy, neuroscientist Will Clower explains precisely why the American diet sabotages weight-loss efforts and discusses how French eating habits can lead to better health and trimmer physiques. In this revolutionary work, Dr. Clower explains:

• How highly processed “fake foods” are the real culprit in the American diet

• Why its not just what you eat but how you eat that makes a difference

• Easy ways to adopt the habits of the French to melt the pounds away, including

complete dinner recipes—with dessert!

Finally, heres a plan that cuts through the high-protein/low-fat debate. Its not a gimmicky diet program but a way of life that will invite Americans to enjoy food like never before—while being healthier and trimmer than they ever could have imagined.

Synopsis:

Between the low-fat devotees and the high-protein zealots, everyone in America thinks they know the best way to take off the pounds. Meanwhile, our obestiy rate is at 33 percent and still climbing. Yet in France the obesity rate has remained steady at eight percent. The French also boast much lower rates of heart disease and stroke, despite all the high-fat foods that are at the cornerstone of their diet. What are we doing wrong?

The Fat Fallacy, which has sold more than 6,000 copies in a self-published hardcover edition, explains precisely why low-fat living can sabotage our weight-loss efforts. America's problem is not the fat or the carbs — it's the highly processed "fake" and "fat-free" foods laden with artificial ingredients. The French don't consume things like Snack-Wells or Diet Snapple. Instead, they eat fresh bread, meats, butter, vegetables, and cheeses, plus a little dessert — foods that are sometimes decadent but always satisfying. By adopting the habits of the French, Americans can finally follow a sensible diet that they can really live with. This book will help dieters melt the pounds away while eating better than they could imagine!
