Discover the surprising reason restrictive diets don’t work—and a practical, science-based guide to reclaim your health through the power of real food.
Carbs aren’t causing your weight gain. Dairy may not be the reason for your upset stomach. And your liver isn’t fatty because of the occasional hamburger. It’s time to enjoy eating everything again—and to reclaim our health along the way. Eat Everything offers a better alternative to complicated, minimally effective, and highly restrictive diets. Physician Dawn Harris Sherling lays out compelling new evidence implicating food additives as the real culprits behind diet-related diseases and shares simple, actionable advice to heal. We’re constantly told to fear carbs, gluten, and dairy, and we turn to strict diets to solve our health problems. Yet Americans still have one of the highest rates of obesity and diabetes in the world, and millions suffer from digestive ailments like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Digging into emerging research, Dr. Sherling realized it’s not the foods but the food additives, especially emulsifiers,that are at the root of our problems. Our bodies can’t digest them, but they feed our microbiomes and they’re everywhere in the ultra-processed foods that make up about half of our daily diets. In this refreshing and accessible guide, readers will learn:
How to lose weight without a restrictive diet
Why so many popular ultra-processed foods are actively harmful to our bodies
How to navigate eating at restaurants—for any meal or occasion
Tips for filling our grocery bags with real food
Why avoiding food additives is beneficial for our bodies and minds
How to embrace healthful cooking at home, with 25 delicious recipes
Dr. Sherling lays out the research on food additives and offers a straightforward guide to eating just about everything (yes, even bread, pasta, and ice cream!) without pain, worry, or guilt. This isn’t just another restrictive diet in disguise; it’s a call to rediscover our love of real food.
