'Fat is our Friend' will change the way you think about what you eat.Confused by the nutrition messages coming from governments and health bodies? Confused by the ever-changing advice from our daily newspapers? Join Sammy Pepys in his quest to discover what's really going on and what you can do to eat more healthily ... and lose weight. In that order.Back in 2012, Sammy Pepys just wanted to help his overweight sister-in-law, Katy, avoid a tummy tuck (bariatric surgery), knowing that all previous attempts at dieting had failed. So he developed a plan showing how best to go about things, which she then put into practice. It worked. And it was the first successful diet Katy had ever completed, achieving a 20 kilo weight loss and much-improved blood sugar levels along the way.Having an inquisitive mind, Sammy spent much of the next three years finding out just why Katy's dietary approach had been so successful and why more people are not eating this way. He learned that: We've effectively been brainwashed into thinking fats and oils are bad for us. Healthy fats such as butter, lard, coconut and olive oil facilitate the essential metabolic functions our bodies perform subconsciously day and night. An excess of sugar, refined flour, synthetic additives and those less-desirable vegetable seed oils - aka junk food - is progressively damaging our bodies.Katy's summary? 'Eat more real food, drop starches and sugar, and learn to love full-fat dairy products like cheeses and butter again to lose weight without feeling hungry. I feel energized.'
