Summary, etc.:
"We have long been told that fat makes us fat, contributes to heart disease, and generally erodes our health. Now a growing body of research is debunking our fat-phobia, revealing the immense health and weight-loss benefits of a high-fat diet rich in eggs, nuts, oils, avocados, and other delicious super-foods. Dr. Mark Hyman presents a weight-loss and healthy living program based on the latest science and explains how to eat fat, get thin and achieve optimum wellness along the way. He calls it the pegan diet: the best of vegan plus the best of paleo. The ideal diet would consist of organic, local, fresh whole foods, a diet very high in vegetables and fruits, sufficiently high in good-quality fats, moderate in protein consumption, and avoiding all foods that contain added sugar in any form. Mark Hyman, MD, is the Director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine. He is the author of The Blood Sugar Solution, The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook, The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet, Ultrametabolism, The Ultramind Solution, The Ultrasimple Diet, and coauthor of The Daniel Plan and Ultraprevention" -- publisher.
