Fat is not the enemy!

Croissants. Brioche. Brie. To the American palate, these foods are fattening and oftentimes &;forbidden.&; Yet they are the regular staples of the French diet. And though almost half of all Americans are overweight, France&;s obesity rate is at a low eight percent, while the French also boast fewer cases of stroke and heart disease. It&;s clear that America&;s obsession with low-fat and fat-free foods has ultimately failed.

In The Fat Fallacy, neuroscientist Will Clower explains precisely why the American diet sabotages weight-loss efforts and discusses how French eating habits can lead to better health and trimmer physiques. In this revolutionary work, Dr. Clower explains:

&; How highly processed &;fake foods&; are the real culprit in the American diet
&; Why it&;s not just what you eat but how you eat that makes a difference
&; Easy ways to adopt the habits of the French to melt the pounds away, including complete dinner recipes&;with dessert!

Finally, here&;s a plan that cuts through the high-protein/low-fat debate. It&;s not a gimmicky diet program but a way of life that will invite Americans to enjoy food like never before&;while being healthier and trimmer than they ever could have imagined.
