Overview Examines the current causes of the obesity epidemic, discussing dietary factors such as the consumption of refined oil and sugar products and a reduction in the consumption of fish, and advocating a change to a healthier diet.
"Toxic Fat: When Good Fat Turns Bad, " provides a revolutionary new understanding of our current obesity epidemic by showing that it can be viewed as a form of cancer to be treated using the clinically proven pathway to change the expression of your genes using food as a drug to rid your body of toxic fat.
For many of us, one of the first signs of toxic fat is the accumulation of excess body fat. In fact, obesity can be viewed as a form of "cancer" that is driven by toxic fat. However, only when this toxic fat begins to spread into the bloodstream does it begin to attack your other organs leading to early development of chronic disease. This is why some people can be overweight and be quite healthy, while others can be of normal weight and be quite sick. What ultimately determines your state of wellness is not your weight but the levels of toxic fat in your blood. This book changes forever how we look at the fat on our body and its impact on the future of health care in America.

Best Zone Book Yet Jan 30, 2010
I believe this is the best book about the Zone yet. It is based on the newest medical research, particularly about diabetes and heart disease. It felt empowering to read about practical and everyday advice in regards to this major health crisis. How to best be diagnosed years before "toxic imflamation" can damage your body and how to reverse it. I know I will follow Dr. Sear's advice even more now than 10 years ago, when I read his first book, which also changed my view on diet and health.
Toxic Fat Nov 8, 2009
I'll be very brief, the book reminds me of the South Beach Diet. Nothing new here, no astounding revelations. Fat is bad,with the exception of Virgin Olive Oil.
In essence, if you want to lose weight, eat less than the calories you burn. Every diet in the world works if we only follow this very simple formula!
Health Sep 17, 2009
