Know Your Fats: The Complete Primer for Understanding the Nutrition of Fats, Oils and Cholesterol Reviews
Proscriptions aside this is a useful background resource on all the fats you can eat.Fats are coming back. They're 'in'. So if you want to eat nouvelle cuisine, you gotta know your fats.
A must-read for anyone, but an especially viable reference for anyone in the health industry. Scientifically explains why coconut oil, palm oil, butter, lard, and whole milk are quality fat. Scientifically explains why we should not believe the propaganda about vegetable oil and margarine--these are man-made substances that offer no benefits and should be excluded from one's diet. Fascinating book but difficult to read at times because it's so medically oriented.
Great book on rethinking medium chain fatty acids (they are actually good for you) such as coconut oil.
Dr. Mary Enig provides a wealth of scientifically sound information about the importance of certain fats in ones diet. I suffered a serious brain injury in 2011 that almost always results in a coma that only 10% ever wake from. While the book is quite complex, it is indeed thorough and serves to demystify the role of the several types of saturated and unsaturated fats in our diet, and what fats are most important for brain and body health. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is able to comprehend complex concepts and diagrams, and have personally used much of the information to steer my own successful recovery.
Enig's book is very accessible and accomplishes the goal of broad, yet in-depth instruction in the biochemistry of fat as a dietary component perfectly.
Enig, being a scientist, does not shy away from fat-chem 101 and provides a perfectly lucid explanation of what fats are and how they are differentiated into saturated, monounsaturated and plyunsaturated groups. She also drums in a very important message - you are far better off without trans fats, while much better of with a plentiful serving of saturated animal fats.
This book should be read by everyone who cares about how their dietary choices affect their health and wellbeing, furthermore, beyond appealing to pro-fat people with the in-depth data on fatty acid composition of most comercially available oils and fats, Know Your Fats should be an eye-opening must-read for every vegan and healthy eating enthusiast on the planet.
