Coconut is the new grapefruit. Based on more than two decades of research by world-renowned biochemist Dr Mary Enig, Eat Fat, Lose Fat flouts conventional wisdom by asserting that so-called ?healthy? vegetable oils are a major cause of obesity, while the saturated fats traditionally considered harmful (such as those found in coconut oil and butter) are, in fact, essential to weight loss and health. Picking up where Atkins left off, this good news diet uses coconut to kickstart a healthy diet, one that will raise metabolism, eliminate cravings and boost energy.
