A crash course on how the standard North American diet is killing us and the simple steps you can take to improve your health.
Dr. Mark Linder has examined the research and the news is bad. Obesity has skyrocketed, with nearly half of all Americans measuring as obese. The incidence of type-2 diabetes in the U.S. has exploded by more than 200 percent since 1980, while heart disease and stroke has nearly doubled in the same timeframe. Worse, the interventions we've been using for the past 40 years aren't working.
In this no-holds-barred book, Dr. Mark Linder gives readers the straight goods on why our heath is spiraling out of control and what we can do about it. It isn't a magic pill, a complicated array of supplements or a pile of cleverly marketed "health" products. No, it is a simple two-step process. Step 1: stop eating processed carbohydrates; Step 2: stop eating vegetable oil. That's it.
Eat Sh*t and Die gives readers a crash course in nutrition as it relates directly to health. There's no wishy-washy pseudoscience here. Instead, Dr. Linder, in his trademark off-the-cuff style, goes deep on macronutrient metabolism, explaining exactly what happens inside your body when you load in carbs, fats and proteins. Heavily illustrated and easy to follow, Dr. Linder's book draws a straight line from our diets to disease. The explanation and solution to the problem are so simple, and in Eat Sh*t and Die, seeing is believing.
Here are some of the medical facts that you'll discover in this eye-opening volume:
If you are concerned about your health (or someone else's), would like to lose weight, feel more energized or are simply interested in understanding what goes on inside your body when you eat, Eat Sh*t and Die is the no-nonsense book for you.
Dr. Mark Linder practices family and emergency medicine in Toronto, Ontario, where he guides his practice by the same principles he shares in this book: Eat whole foods and stay away from refined carbs and vegetable oil.
