Eat Fat, be Healthy: When a Low-fat Diet Can Kill You
ARE YOU AT RISK FOR THE HEARTSTOPPER EFFECT?
"Eat Fat, Be Healthy" is the amazing story of Matt Bayan's medical odyssey and how he came to understand the "HeartStopper Effect," a mysterious genetic condition that produces more bad cholesterol on a very low-fat diet than on a diet higher in certain kinds of fat. Incredibly, an estimated 20 percent of the population possesses this genetic condition -- and the vast majority doesn't even know it. In "Eat Fat, Be Healthy," Bayan:
Explains how this genetic condition is identified Outlines the specific diet, exercises, and medications that are most effective in combating the condition Includes useful charts and easy calculations to help you determine if you are at risk -- and what to do if you are
With the HeartStopper Effect still largely unknown in the medical community, this inspiring book -- an appeal to everyone to become better informed and more involved in his or her own medical care -- will be a lifesaver for thousands of people. Part medical memoir, part cutting-edge scientific self-help book, "Eat Fat, Be Healthy" is a book with a powerful message: You "can" save yourself from heart disease.
