From the national
bestselling author of Racing Weight, Matt Fitzgerald exposes the
irrationality, half-truths, and downright impossibility of a “single right way”
to eat and reveals how to develop rational, healthy eating habits.
From “the Four-Hour Body” to “Atkins,” there are diet cults
to match seemingly any mood and personality type. Everywhere we turn, someone
is preaching the “one true way” to eat for maximum health. Paleo Diet advocates
tell us that all foods less than twelve thousand years old are the enemy.
Low-carb gurus demonize carbs, and then there are the low-fat prophets. But
they agree on one thing: there is only one true way to eat for maximum health.
The first clue that this is a fallacy is the sheer variety of diets advocated.
Indeed, while all of these competing views claim to be backed by science, a
good look at actual nutritional science suggests it is impossible to
identify a single best way to eat. Fitzgerald advocates an agnostic, rational
approach to eating habits based on one’s own habits, lifestyle, and genetics
and body type. Many professional athletes already practice this “Good Enough”
diet, and now we can too—and ditch the brainwashing of these diet cults for
good. Download and start listening now!
