Neurologist David Permutter, M.D., interviewed Nora Gedgaudas, about her new book, Primal Body, Primal Mind, which was published January 24, 2017. The following is Amazon’s description of the book:
“Author of the popular Primal Body, Primal Mind and widely recognized Paleo expert and nutritionist, Nora Gedgaudas presents a revolutionary, scientific, accessible high-fat diet for maintaining health, losing weight, and reversing some chronic diseases.
Popular nutritionist Nora Gedgaudas returns with advice that may sound counterintuitive: Eat fat to burn fat. In her new book, Primal Fat Burner, she explains the benefits and science behind a ketogenic (or fat-burning) diet, which switches your metabolism from a dependence on sugar to running on healthy fats. As Gedgaudas reveals, numerous studies in recent years refute the long-promoted anti-saturated fat and anti-cholesterol agenda. Now, Gedgaudas explains the science that fat isn’t a “no-no” but rather a “yes-yes”—if you know the right kinds of fats to eat. In her accessible, enjoyable style, she also lays out a practical meal plan with recipes. When you follow a ketogenic diet, you consume fewer calories overall!
Author of the bestselling Grain Brain, Dr. David Perlmutter writes in his foreword that Primal Fat Burner is, “Wonderfully actionable, compassionately taking the reader from ‘why’ to ‘how.’” On this diet, you efficiently and effectively metabolize fat (ketones and free fatty acids) as your primary source of fuel, rather than glucose from carbs, starches, and sugars. Because fat is so satisfying, you naturally wind up eating less—without feelings of hunger or deprivation. And natural dietary fat is ultimately key to optimum health and longevity.
Gedgaudas communicates a real appreciation for and understanding of the central role that dietary fat plays in your body and brain, and explains how you can eat to feel better, look better, think clearer, and live longer.”
Dr. Permutter wrote this about Nora on his website:
“Today’s interview is with a very good friend, Nora Gedgaudas. Nora is one of the most respected authorities on ketogenic, ancestrally-based nutrition for whole-body, optimum health. Using her deep understanding of science and 30+ years of relentless research and 20 years of clinical application, Nora successfully connects the dots to real, lasting results where others fall prey to the latest fads and misquoted studies.”
Author of the Big Fat Surprise, Nina Teicholz calls Nora’s book “a unique and profound contribution to the field.”
