Popular nutritionist Nora Gedguadas returns with advice that may sound counterintuitive: eat fat to burn fat. In Primal Fat Burner she explains the benefits and science behind a ketogenic (or fat-burning) diet, which switches your metabolism from a dependence on sugar to running on healthy fats. As Gedgaudas reveals, numerous studies in recent years refute the long-promoted anti-saturated fat and anti-cholesterol agenda. Now Gedgaudas explains the science that fat isn’t a ‘no-no’ but rather a ‘yes-yes’ – if you know the right kinds of fats to eat. In her accessible, enjoyable style, she also lays out a practical meal plan with recipes. When you follow a ketogenic diet, you consume fewer calories overall!

Author of the bestselling Grain Brain, Dr. David Perlmutter writes in his foreword that Primal Fat Burner is ‘wonderfully actionable, compassionately taking the reader from “why” to “how.”‘ On this diet, you efficiently and effectively metabolise fat (ketones and free fatty acids) as your primary source of fuel, rather than glucose from carbs, starches and sugars. Because fat is so satisfying, you naturally wind up eating less – without feelings of hunger or deprivation. And natural dietary fat is ultimately key to optimum health and longevity.

Gedgaudas communicates a real appreciation for and understanding of the central role that dietary fat plays in your body and brain, and explains how you can eat to feel better, look better, think clearer and live longer.


Praise for PRIMAL FAT BURNER “This book tells the fascinating story of how our very humanity our healthy bodies and exceptional brains evolved from eating animal foods including their natural fats. The science supporting the lack of harm and indeed the benefit of dietary fat, including saturated fat, has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. In this well researched and wide ranging book, Gedgaudas shows a mastery of that science and then takes it a step further. Drawing upon her many years of personal, clinical experience with patients, she explains how to take these principles into practice, bridging the gap between science and usable information for daily nutrition. This is a unique and profound contribution to the field.” (Nina Teicholz, author of The Big Fat Surprise. )”Ready to live long, lustily, wisely and well?  Then it’s time to let Nora Gedgaudas teach you the “fats of life.”” (Kaayla T. Daniel PhD, The Naughty Nutritionist (R), and coauthor of Nourishing Broth )”With able, funny writing; dozens of recipes; digressive but interesting boxed sections within chapters; and a note to readers to seek ultimate advice from their doctors, Gedgaudas lays out a plan for adopting a ketogenic diet for improved health and wellness.” (Booklist)”Nora Gedgaudas makes the unique case for the central role of fat and outlines a way of eating to dramatically improve health. Ketogenic eating plans are an important tool to address the growing epidemic of autoimmune disease.” (Terry Wahls, M.D., author of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles )“This [adopting a fat based, ketogenic diet] is the single most important health intervention we can make as doctors… And as nations.” (Timothy Noakes, M.D., Emeritus professor in the Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine at the University of Cape Town, South Africa )“Nora Gedgaudas presents compelling information on the health benefits of dietary fat from an evolutionary perspective. She does an excellent job in debunking the myth that high fat, low carbohydrate diets are unhealthy, and that low fat high carbohydrate diets are healthy. She provides valuable resources for those interested in transitioning from unhealthy high carbohydrate diets to healthy fat based diets.” (Thomas N. Seyfried, Ph.D., Professor of Biology, Boston College )”Gedgaudas deftly describes the link between what we eat and what we become. Millions of years of human evolution made us omnivores with well muscled bodies and extraordinary minds that could not have developed without a diet rich in fat, including saturated fat! Read this book and you’ll understand why much maligned animal fat is so important to your health and why it is critical that it come from animals grazing on healthy land (and not confined to feedlots). I cannot recommend this book highly enough.” (Allan Savory, The Savory Institute )”This unique book provides a much needed big picture, addresses the state of humankind, the errant direction we have all taken, the dark influence of global corporations and, most importantly, how we can regain our power and embrace a truly healthy, sustainable future. Nora makes the case to focus on what we all share:  a common biological design, and a need for a food economy that restores local, natural systems. In this way, we can take back what was once ours, and what is fundamentally our primal birthright.” (Helena Norberg Hodge, author of Ancient Futures )“Primal Fat Burner has a wealth of new information and science showing us the power of a ketogenic diet in addressing many health issues including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, neurological diseases, and cancer. Nora writes with passion, enthusiasm, and a warm sense of humor as she takes you on a life changing easy to implement journey to take control of your health by putting fat front and center! This is a book that should be read far and wide.” (Vicki Poulter, Director, Nourishing Australia, International Advisory board of Price Pottenger Nutrition Foundation )”In terms of nutritional knowledge, Gedgaudas is about a decade ahead of 99% of U.S. physicians, who are taught virtually zilch about healthful eating in medical school. Counterintuitive though it sounds, increasing your fat intake will promote weight loss. The real nutritional villain is sugar (a fact kept hidden from us by the sugar industry!). The low carb high fat diet in Primal Fat Burner actually protects people from obesity and heart disease. When it comes to making the overweight and chronically ill American healthy again, Primal Fat Burner is destined to be a real game changer.” (David Edelberg, MD, author of The Triple Whammy Cure )”The message of the book is powerful and compelling. America has been on a disastrous course with respect to diet in its official policies, and in regard to our own work, the Standard American Diet represents an impediment to achieving the best results with neurofeedback. A major reset is in order, and the essential path is laid out in this book. Nora has been a prime mover in the paleo diet movement with her first major book, Primal Body Primal Mind. But the story continues to evolve as research proliferates, and as we learn to adjust to current realities regarding agriculture and the whole food processing chain…” (Dr. Siegfried Othmer, PhD., Chief Scientist, EEG Institute )”Primal Fat Burner is an amazing follow up to Primal Body Primal Mind. Nora does what most writers won’t do which is to truly answer the questions of those that want to know the answers. This book is full of incredible recipes, nutritional nuggets and an approach to Ketogenic dieting that will dispel the notion that Fat is bad. Get ready to clear your pantry of poison and find your paleo path in Primal Fat Burner today!” (Adam Von Rothfelder ) “For the latest in the common question of “what diet is best?” — there is good news and bad news: The bad news is that our low fat, high carb, highly processed food diets have been a health disaster. The good news is, we can switch to a fat and naturally based diet, for more efficient fat burning, energy producing regimen that we need in to survive and even thrive in our modern lifestyles. The evidence lies in our distant human past, and modern science confirms this. Nora is a brilliant and talented writer who can make even the most complex concepts that are also going against the grain (yup!)  a joy to read. Then there are the amazing recipes: simple to prepare, nourishing, delicious and providing our bodies and brains with the true nutrition they need. All in one gorgeous book!.” (Hyla Cass MD, author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health )
