So much information and also humor. Whole grains aren’t healthy. Jun 15, Maxine rated it did not like it Shelves: There is no attitude, and the author is entertaining. But, the same thing can be said of meat and dairy, and in fact is said about meat and dairy, even by Wolfe herself.
But wait, there’s more! Liz Wolfe makes an excellent case for following our an-cestral diet as she debunks many of the food myths that have held America in thrall for decades. This is a tragedy of misinformation, food industry shenanigans, and cheap calories disguised as health food.

This book yoks be taught in schools. It struck me how very different our societies must be, since organ meats are generally prized in my own culture. A well written and easy to read book. As someone who reads the studies and really does their own research on whatever my topic of interest may be, I found the way Liz presented what she’d found in her research to be frustrating.
eolfe Her best advice is when she’s urging her readers to “Eat food that actually is food” and giving specific guidance about the nutrients and health benefits to be gained from doing so. And we need to get away from all those ‘easy to fix’ processed foods.
Nov 26, Nina. I just wish this stuff was common knowledge.
Although she isn’t as accreditated as some of the other authors, most of which are doctors, she is part of the NTP Nutritional Therapy Associationwhich is something you could literally go online right now and get your certification for so I was raised on real food and I consider that an advantage.

Firstly, I have to state that I am extremely fortunate to live in a third world country where the processed foods so abundantly found in countries like America, took a lot longer to reach our shores.
This was unfortunate, because underneath the writing style is actually some good information written in an accessible manner. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
Basically I can save you the time yols summarize it for you. Even though it explains the expected history of nutrition and how nutrition works, it goes a step further and dispels a lot of myths about nutrition. There isn’t a section in this book devoted to “foods you should eat and foods you shouldn’t”, instead she sums it all up ylks simply saying “eat food, not processed crap”.
I love how down to earth and approachable this book is, mixed in with a lot of wit and humor to make it an lis read. What I did love was Liz’s perspective on the three macronutrients fat, protein, and carbwhich is that they are all important, and that we should not be vilifying any single one of them.
Jul 07, Emily rated it liked it. The idea that anything other than kale and cauliflower are an affront to the environment is thoroughly challenged and our basic integrity as consumers of nature is affirmed.

So many of the other nutrition books were just cold hard facts which go figure are the same facts she presents, so I’m confident listening to her because at least four other doctor’s I’ve read agree with what she says, plus countless others she credits in the bookbut her book is more about bringing the reality of a paleo lifestyle ljz everyone.
If the answer was in the book, I missed it.
Eay 08, Liz Bransfield rated it it was ok. In four thorough chapters she covers the topics of Fat, Protein, Carbs and Nutrients and does so in such a way as to provide an arsenal of facts to obliterate the naysayers. For someone who has not read this information before, Eat the Yolks is a good starting place. It over-generalizes and over-simplifies, not to mention requires her to make some leaps, or even a somersault or two, with her reasoning.
Wrapping your brain around the concepts of “real food” eating can be hard, but it doesn’t have to be and Liz breaks it down for us. This book clears that up for me and you will be surprised. Ring said, she’s a bit too sassy for my tastes.
All in all, if you can get through the parts of the book where Wolfe unintentionally undermines her argument about resisting nutritional “dogma”, with flimsy-ish anthropology and logical fallacy-ish “dogma” of her own she just calls it “Paleo”there’s a lot of good stuff to learn here.
The author is sassy, which makes the book entertaining. I appreciate its emphasis on myth busting the things that “everybody knows.
Introducing Eat the Yolks!
Finally, if we are going to acknowledge that our ancestors started eating meat so their noggins could get bigger, we also have to acknowledge that phasing out hunting and gathering for an agrarian lifestyle also allowed us to grow our noggins, ’cause it did, having extra time tthe rest and exercise them and all. I was surprised that I didn’t see footnotes or more extensive citing of research.
Comments your hair looks fabulous! In order to be the healthiest we can be, ths should try our best to eat whole, nutrient dense, sustainably sourced foods, animals and plants, that don’t have an ingredients list and in addition have the benefit of being considered food for a long time”.
