We live in an era of health hype and nutrition propaganda, and we’re suffering for it.
Eat the Yolks is about the lies we’ve been told, why the heck we believed them, and the REAL truth about real food.
(Sound boring? Don’t worry. Sure, the truth is crucial; but laughing while you learn? That’s a must. See: the chapter on Kellogg’s Flaccid Flakes.)
Here’s the straight talk: decades of avoiding egg yolks, choosing margarine over butter, and replacing the REAL foods of our ancestors with low-fat, processed, packaged substitutes hasn’t just left us with unhappy taste buds. It’s left us with an obesity epidemic, ever-rising rates of chronic disease, and, above all, total confusion about what to eat and why.
This is a tragedy of misinformation, food industry shenanigans, and cheap calories disguised as health food.
It turns out that everything we’ve been told about how to eat is wrong.
Nothing is off limits. From fat, cholesterol, protein and carbs to salt, the sun, and dairy products, I tackle it all.
