Eat Fat, Lose Fat: The Healthy Alternative to Trans Fats
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Coconut oil, red meat, and butter—these fats are traditionally considered harmful, but this powerful book, based on more than two decades of research, shows that these saturated fats are actually essential to weight loss and health. Eat Fat, Lose Fat flouts conventional wisdom by revealing that so-called healthy vegetable oils (such as corn and soybean) are in large part responsible for our national obesity and health crisis.
The three programs in this book, which features delicious coconut oil based recipes, among others, show that eating healthy fats is the answer to losing weight and achieving good health for a lifetime.

your daily dose of cod-liver oil will give you 1000 IU, the amount that current vitamin D researchers feel should be the RDA. If that sounds high to you, consider this: in a 1999 review of the data published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Canadian researchers concluded that the dose should actually be 4000 IU per day.
