The Fat Fallacy
Applying the French Diet to the American LifestyleUnknown - 2001
Americans are in the middle of an obesity epidemic. By contrast, the French eat wonderful creams, cheeses, and baguettes-the very fats and carbohydrates we've been told to avoid. Remarkably, these sumptuous foods produce a nation of thin people (with an 8% obesity rate) who live longer than us and don't have our heart problems. In The Fat Fallacy, Dr. Clower makes a basic point-the same diet that keeps them thin and healthy can work for us as well. Dr. Clower shows us that by trading in high quantity for high quality foods-no pills, surgery, or deprivation-we can lose weight while also losing the guilt and fear associated with rich foods so we can get back to enjoying the sensual pleasure of eating well.
