Reader Reviews:

This 134-page book is written by Robert DeMaria,a chiropractor, and Laura Meyer, a former English teacher with a master's in exercise science. According to the authors, trans fats are dangerous. Veiled, covert, and debilitating, these fats wreak havoc on our hearts. Trans fat is the George Bush of food. DeMaria said "It's actually stealth", the insidious killer.

Trans fat, like sucrose, does not occur naturally in foods apart from dead animals or meat. It is manufactured. Like heroin is manufactured from opium, so is sucrose refined from sugar cane, and so is oil heated with a metal catalyst and hydrogenated. Dr Bob is against sucrose and hydrogenated oils because not only do they cause disease, but they cause pain. Dr Bob is a chiropractor who treats pain, and he's found that what you put into your body is often responsible for alot of pain. Most people feel pain in their back, then their knees, then their head, followed by legs, shoulders, and feet.

Dr Bob is sincere about practicing what he preaches. He does not drink alcohol because that is like ingesting sucrose. He doesn't smoke or drink soda pop. His only bad habit is organic coffee rather than raw coffee. He probably doesn't know that roasting the coffee bean produces a carcinagenic tar same as when you burn tobacco leaves, and that tar causes colon cancer. He eats alot of nuts, but it is unclear if they're salted or not. The DRA of sodium is 500 milligrams, and if Dr Bob is eating salted nuts on a daily basis, then he's not doing his kidneys any good.

However, he gets a colonic peroiodically, jogs daily, and takes no medication. The value of this book is the message that there is no safe level of trans fats, so stop ingesting them. Also, the warnings about the effects of sucrose are well said. This means no more fast foods, although some Wendys restaurants fry their fries in non-hydrogenated vegetable oil, but you have to ask because their all different; or better yet - get the baked potato!

Dr Bob also has a website: www.DrBob4Health.com .I tried to submit this review, but the website told me there was an error. Even if it did go through, it's WORTH the re-submission! I am a Massage Therapist and an Aerobics Instructor. My husband and I both read this book. We already knew that trans fats are bad, but This Book helped us to learn WHY and HOW trans fats are bad for us. In this book, there are some great ideas for meals as well as snacks and we used it as a guide when we went grocery shopping. About 3 weeks ago, we cut out trans fats completely. My husband told me that his back and neck pain, and what he considers the best effect, his HEADACHES are almost completely gone! I was living with joint pain, especially in my knees, and I noticed, especially in aerobics, that my knees don't hurt AT ALL! It may take some time, but reading this book, then cutting out trans fats is a great step towards OPTIMAL HEALTH, what else could be better than to feel great!
