9780062279309: Proteinaholic: How Our Obsession with Meat Is Killing Us and What We Can Do About It

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.

From the Back Cover:

Cut Through the Noise. Know the Research.

Protein Is Making Us Sick, Fat, and Tired.

Protein is not the key to weight loss. Animal protein is not the healthiest food we can eat. Carbs are not the enemy. In Proteinaholic, Dr. Garth Davis dispels the myths that have been perpetuated by our doctors, our weight loss experts, and the media; sets the record straight about contradictory studies and confusing headlines; and distills these findings into a straight-forward, plant-based solution that will change your life forever.
