The pandemic proved that it is one thing to sit around waiting for scientists to develop a vaccine against a new virus, but it is quite another for doctors and dietitians to tell people to ignore a weapon already close at hand, in their kitchens, that can protect them from the worst effects of COVID-19 infection. That weapon is a low-carb, high-fat diet…

It took a viral pandemic to reinvigorate the evidence that a low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diet may be a ‘vaccine’ against ill health and premature death. The Eat Right Revolution exposes the real pandemic we should all worry about– not another coronavirus, but a diet-related medical condition that threatens people’s life expectancy and well-being globally.

The Eat Right Revolution sets out a quick, safe, cheap and effective investment you can make for lifelong health in body and mind. It exposes the root causes of chronic, life-threatening comorbidi­ties, such as obesity, type-2 diabetes, heart disease and more, and explains why LCHF and ketogenic diets can be safer, more effective solutions than drugs to beat these diseases.

With recipes, food lists and meal plans, as well as updated, personalised do’s and don’ts on the right LCHF approach for each individual, this book is an essential guide to living a longer, stronger, healthier life.
