Nourishing Fats Book Review
While I have been focusing intently on alopecia, not much hair regrowth has been made since my hair regrowth update, so I thought I’d provide a review of the latest health book that I received as a gift.
Name: Nourishing Fats
Authors: Sally Fallon Morell and Nina Teicholz
Overall Rank: 85 out of 100
Nourishing Fats, Book Overview
Sally Fallon Morell is the president of the Weston A. Price Foundation and has been at the forefront of mindful eating for the last two decades. Her book identifies the origins of our current health misconceptions. She supports and expands on the scientific research that eating a wide range of good fats will improve our health.
This book draws on extensive research that indicates that saturated fat plays a role in developing a healthy brain, heart, kidney, lungs, and endocrine system. Healthy fats are essential for proper tooth and bone formation.
The Good & the Bad:
PRO #1: The origin of current health is established and Sally Fallon Morell identifies the weaknesses of the research that indicates that saturated fats are bad for you.
PRO #2: The writing is interesting and engaging.
PRO #3: There are recipes for traditional healthy fats in the back of the book. You will learn how to make a healthy version of ice cream, sour cream, mayonnaise, and ranch dressing. The recipes include healthier versions of main dishes as well.
CON #1: The short lesson on the biochemistry of fats is not all that simple and easy to understand.
CON #2: Much of the content in this book is explained in her online interviews promoting the book.
Who is Nourishing Fats for?
The information in this book is ideal for anyone who wants to improve their health. Parents raising children with ADHD and autism will benefit immensely from the ideas and content of this book.
As someone with epilepsy, I appreciate learning more about fats and how they support brain function. I have increased my intake of healthy pasture-raised fats and feel great.
Nourishing Fats Tools & Training
This is a paperback book, so there are no tools or training included. You simply need to know how to read. The nice thing about this book is that you don’t need a laptop and electricity to read it. You can simply use a bookmark when you want to stop. It is very old-fashioned.
I do believe that the book is also available on kindle.
Nourishing Fats Price
The book is listed at $24.99 on Amazon. This seems reasonable for a 250-page paperback book now that we have increasing amounts of inflation on just about everything. Normally, I like to spend below $20 for a book, but we are experiencing massive inflation due to government spending. The cost of this book is likely to go up in the coming months. It is a good time to buy it.
My Final Opinion of the Nourishing Fats Book
I really like the book. I’m definitely enjoying reading a physical book again as opposed to staring at a screen and scrolling down the page. I do like knowing where the ideas around fats being bad came from and how the studies don’t exactly indicate that fats are bad.
I think that it is important for people to understand that many studies can be designed to create the result that the company wants them to reflect. This means that manufacturers who pay for studies are likely to hide the negative impacts that may occur from drugs. That is why we so often see lawsuit advertisements only a few years after a new drug comes on the market.
