Food Myths: Going Beyond the Health Food Fads and Getting Real about Science, Health, and Nutrition

Sugar! Saturated Fat! Salt! Oh My!

What if everything you thought you knew about food turned out to be wrong? Sugar, salt, saturated fat…these so-called demons of the food world may not be so sinister after all, and the supposed “proof” that these tasty foods are harmful rests on some very fragile ground. Does sugar really cause cancer? Doesn’t saturated fat cause heart disease? If you cut out salt, won’t you lower your blood pressure and therefore be healthier? The answers t

    Everyone Who Eats should read this book! I’m one of those people who’s changed my diet a couple of dozen times after hearing some expert say that this or that is bad for your health or waistline. Like a lot of folks I took their word for it if given what seemed like a convincing argument. No matter what adjustments I made I can’t say that I ever got the promised outcome, at least not for long. Never got the amazing energy boost from green smoothies, all veggies and no meat. Never felt any better avoiding fat, salt, white flour and sugar. My fear of certain foods and the anxiety it caused definitely did not help matters. I would sit and watch people eating things that I knew for a fact were bad but they seemed healthy and happy while I was still miserable and I was following “the rules.” This little book did more to help me figure out how to get feeling better than any of the last 50 or so health books I’ve read. I’ve tried a few of Joey’s books and I can’t say I agree with everything he’s ever written but he’s great at making you see things differently and just getting you to think. This book ain’t nothin’ but the facts, (in an entertaining fashion) and I’m tremendously grateful for having found it. Thank you Mr. Lott!!

    I read this book from some skeptical point of view. If it’s true that we are surrounded by millions of web pages about “food myths”, it’s also true that there are lots of other sites trying to debunk those myths, and sure, most of them are really bad at it. That said, I can’t help but say I was pleasantly impressed. With a clean, sincere and fun style, Joey explains how those myths are just that, unfounded information that only brings fear and anxiety to our lives. I really thinks this little book is worth reading and something to enjoy twice: first while actually reading it, and then later, when you can again enjoy real natural food without guilty nor worrying.

    The author invites us to examine several food myths which “everybody” thinks are facts. This is important information, because we are inundated with very unhelpful food “facts” in magazines, doctor’s offices and friends. Now we have some truths to help us in not being so persuaded by every fad.
