Like most doctors, Peter Brukner was trained to believe that drugs and surgery are the answers to all medical problems – including the epidemics of obesity, diabetes and other ‘modern illnesses’ that are threatening our healthcare system and the life expectancy of future generations. For years he was dismissive of any ‘alternative’ diets or lifestyle changes.

But that all changed when, facing the double threat of obesity and diabetes himself, he had a shocking realisation that overturned a lot of the medical ‘truth’ he’d taken for granted: our dietary guidelines and food pyramid have no scientific basis. So he switched to a low-carb, healthy fat lifestyle – and dropped 13 kilos, lowered his insulin levels and drastically improved his liver function in just three months.

In A Fat Lot of Good Dr Brukner busts the dietary myths we’ve been living by for decades and gives you all the information you need, in as simple a way as possible, to live a longer, healthier and – more importantly – more enjoyable life.

A Fat Lot of Good features:

  • The real reasons why we’re all getting fatter and less healthy
  • The lowdown on carbs, fats and proteins: what they do, which we actually need and how much
  • What you need to know about insulin, inflammation and the gut microbiome
  • Dr Brukner’s Five Golden Rules for a healthy lifestyle
  • Tips on reading food labels, making smart choices when eating out and buying real food on a budget
  • Advice on how to get the right levels of exercise, sleep and sun to boost your health
  • A selection of simple low-carb, healthy fat recipes to get you started

Packed full of the latest research and countless practical tips, A Fat Lot of Good is the complete toolkit for building the healthy lifestyle that’s right for you.

Doc and I would chat for hours about all of the various issues that have surround people’s health or their lack of it and how so much of this could have been prevented and can be prevented with some very simple and most importantly, correct information for everyone in the world to understand. Why couldn’t the world just know the real truth about healthy living habits and not be fed the incorrect information where the source at times was unknown or the massive conflicts of interest around the food industry openly acknowledged to the wider population. We have the right to know how simple it is to keep at bay so many of the diseases that cripple our society.

This is where this book from Doc Brukner is so incredibly good. You will never have to read any other book on this topic as it it covers all of the information that you will ever need to know about both sides of the equation and the truths and misleadings that have engulfed our society.

I am sure you will all enjoy it as much as I did and this information will be as life changing for you as it has been for me.
