Genre: Health & Fitness

An acclaimed surgeon specializing in weight loss delivers a paradigm-shifting examination of the diet and health industry’s focus on protein, explaining why it is detrimental to our health, and can prevent us from losing weight. Whether you are seeing a doctor, nutritionist, or a trainer, all of them advise to eat more protein. Foods, drinks, and supplements are loaded with extra protein. Many people use protein for weight control, to gain or lose pounds, while others believe it gives them more energy and is essential for a longer, healthier life. Now, Dr. Garth Davis, an expert in weight loss asks, “Is all this protein making us healthier?” The answer, he emphatically argues, is NO. Too much protein is actually making us sick, fat, and tired, according to Dr. Davis. If you are getting adequate calories in your diet, there is no such thing as protein deficiency. The healthiest countries in the world eat far less protein than we do and yet we have an entire nation on a protein binge getting sicker by the day. As a surgeon treating obese patients, Dr. Davis was frustrated by the ever-increasing number of sick and overweight patients, but it wasn't until his own health scare that he realized he could do something about it. Combining cutting-edge research, with his hands-on patient experience and his years dedicated to analyzing studies of the world’s longest-lived populations, this explosive, groundbreaking book reveals the truth about the dangers of protein and shares a proven approach to weight loss, health, and longevity.

High-fat, high-sugar foods get most of the blame for weight gain and obesity, but doctors have found that high insulin levels are actually the culprit. When we eat foods that raise our insulin level, the body stores fat; when we lower our insulin level, the body naturally burns fat. In The Thinsulin(TM) Program, bariatric internist Tu Song-Anh Nguyen and psychiatrist Charles Nguyen share their proven, science-based, two-stage plan for weight loss. First, the active phase shows you how to gain control of and lower your insulin levels through food choices that enable dramatic weight loss. Next, the passive phase helps you to adopt a new way of thinking about food, focusing on insulin rather than calories, to keep excess weight off for good.
