Know Your Fats: The Complete Primer for Understanding the Nutrition of Fats, Oils and Cholesterol Reviews
Excellent book! Some was a bit too in depth and scientific for my pea brain, but overall the message was clear-real, unprocessed fat from meat, dairy and vegetables is good for you-it's the processed and fake fats that are bad. The processed food industry (makers of margarine, canola type oils, heavily processed vegetable oils) have worked hard funding and promoting inept and incorrect studies and claims that REAL food is bad and FAKE food is good. Thanks to biochemists like Mary Enig, there is real science to show that the real stuff is what our bodies need.

Review from a nutrition student: Very well organized book but if you already know about fats, it will only teach you a little bit more than you already know. I might recommend it for learning about fats, although I personally think a textbook is much more straight forward, but then again a textbook might not have a holistic view about fat. I wish this book had gone into more detail about mechanisms rather than just outcomes. I also found the Q/A section at the end to be less than helpful. If you're looking to discover the history of fats in terms of labeling and so on, this book has a lot of detail about that.
Great book on rethinking medium chain fatty acids (they are actually good for you) such as coconut oil.
Very dry, fact based book. It was hard for me to understand some parts but this is a good reference to have on the shelf for any nutritionist. See a great review of the book here:
