Fat, we learn, is the body’s preferred fuel. Carbs are unnecessary. Therefore, the authors aim to “deconstruct the bad fat myth and return us to the attitude of ancient times when fat was prized”.
When one of South Africa’s most renowned sports science academics executes a 180º turn on previous dietary guidelines, it inevitably makes headlines. Athletes along with thousands of health-conscious South Africans were initially stunned when Noakes announced that many of us, and particularly anyone genetically predisposed toward diabetes, seriously overweight or with high blood pressure, should avoid carbohydrates and increase their intake of fat and protein.
- Real Meal Revolution by Tim Noakes, Sally-Ann Creed, David Grier, Jonno Proudfoot, Tudor Caradoc-Davies
