Description of Fat for Fuel PDF
Fat for Fuel PDF: For over a century, we’ve accepted the scientific consensus that cancer results from genetic disease due to chromosomal damage in cell nuclei. But what if scientists are chasing a flawed paradigm? What if cancer isn’t a disease of damaged DNA, but rather of defective metabolism as a result of mitochondrial dysfunction? What if that startling truth could revolutionize our understanding of other diseases too–and show us a radical new path to optimal health?
In this groundbreaking guide, the first of its kind, New York Times best-selling author and leading natural-health practitioner Joseph Mercola explains how nearly all disease is caused by defective metabolic processes. Then he reveals what’s really causing your metabolism to go haywire: damage and dysfunction in the mitochondria, thousands of which are at work in nearly every cell in your body, generating 90 percent of the energy you need to stay alive and well. When mitochondria become damaged in large numbers, it is impossible to stay healthy.
Dr. Mercola shows that you can take control of your health simply by giving your body the proper fuel–and it’s not what you’ve been led to believe. A ketogenic diet, very low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, is the way to optimize the biochemical pathways that suppress disease and support healing. And the benefits can be astonishing–not only in treating or preventing serious illness, but in boosting your brainpower, increasing your energy, helping you lose weight and keep it off, and much more.
As you read this book Fat for Fuel PDF, you’ll learn in clear, rational terms how your body works at a molecular level. You’ll finally understand the type of fuel it’s designed to burn in the most efficient way possible. You’ll find detailed guidelines for starting a ketogenic eating plan. And you won’t have to wait decades for metabolic mitochondrial therapy to make its way into the mainstream. You can build a healthier body and brain starting right now
— Christiane Northrup, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and Goddesses Never Age
“I truly believe that the concept of Mitochondrial Metabolic Therapy will have significant impact on health. As I mentioned in my book, cancer is not likely to occur in people with healthy mitochondria. Dr. Mercola has expanded this concept to a broad range of chronic diseases that involve mitochondrial dysfunction. He provides a clear rationale as well as guidelines for implementation of MMT. This book Fat for Fuel PDF should be read by anyone interested in maintaining their health without toxic pharmaceuticals.”
— Thomas Seyfried, Ph.D., author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease and professor of biology at Boston College”Dr. Mercola’s Fat for Fuel eloquently presents the leading edge of science, exploring how best to power your body. This is a life-changing text that not only provides a deep dive into why choosing fat as our primary fuel source powerfully correlates with health and disease resistance, but also delivers in terms of how the reader can easily bring about this fundamentally important change. Health, on a global scale, has suffered profoundly as a consequence of commercially influenced dietary recommendations. Mercola’s science-based refutation of this status quo provides a welcome and compassionate response, allowing readers to regain and maintain optimal health.”
— David Perlmutter, M.D., F.A.C.N., board-certified neurologist and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain and The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan
“This remarkable book presents a truly revolutionary program that can help millions of people achieve optimal health. Dr. Mercola clearly explains the importance of mitochondria for metabolic function and carefully guides his readers with detailed practical advice for enhancing their activity. Fat for Fuel will change the way you think about nutrition and your health.”
— Leo Galland, M.D., author of The Allergy Solution“In Fat for Fuel, Dr. Mercola beautifully lays out the history—and the myths—behind the high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet that has been at the root of so much illness and death in the last half-century. Dr. Mercola is one of the few who have properly understood and embraced my long-standing belief that one’s health and lifespan is mostly determined by the proportion of fat versus sugar one burns over a lifetime. He also understands that excess protein creates another whole set of health-eroding issues. Anyone who values their health should read this book Fat for Fuel PDF.”
— Ron Rosedale, M.D.
“The world of nutrition is more confusing than ever. But one thing has become increasingly evident over the past decade: teaching our bodies to use fat instead of glucose as the main fuel source has immense potential to support patients suffering from some of the most devastating chronic diseases. Dr. Mercola’s Fat for Fuel will be an invaluable resource for me in two ways: personally, because I’m a cancer patient myself striving to create an environment that will keep my disease at bay, but also professionally as a nutritional therapist. Fat for Fuel will help me inform, educate, and guide my clients.”
— Patricia Daly, dipNT, mNTOI, mBANT
“Fat for Fuel is another fact-based, insightful book Fat for Fuel PDF by the visionary Joseph Mercola that will not just change your life, but could literally save it. Dr. Mercola understands how food can preserve wellness or destroy it. Boldly challenging old myths about fat, diet, and healing, he gives practical, step-by-step instructions that will empower you to take control of your health whether you are sick and want to get well, or are healthy and want to stay well.”
— Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder, National Vaccine Information Center
“Fat for Fuel is required reading for anyone wishing to radically and expeditiously address a current health crisis and also for those of us seeking to ameliorate genetic predispositions as we age.”
— Karen Becker, D.V.M.
“Dr. Mercola’s lifetime of research reaches a crescendo with Fat for Fuel. Every page is a distillation of his genuine passion to optimize human health through diet.”
— Travis Christofferson, author of Tripping over the Truth: How the Metabolic Theory of Cancer Is Overturning One of Medicine’s Most Entrenched Paradigms
“Fat for Fuel is a powerhouse of practical, evidence-based information for the clinician and consumer alike. With so much conflicting information in the nutrition world, this book serves as a critical resource for every physician in training or in practice, and for every person eager to avoid the need for those doctors.”
— Zach Bush, M.D., endocrinologist
“Fat for Fuel is a powerful manifesto reexamining the fat-phobic paradigm that has long dominated the thinking about health and nutrition. This is an extremely valuable guidebook Fat for Fuel PDF for those seeking to understand and implement transformational dietary changes to boost their metabolic and cellular function. By shifting away from the idea of glucose as the optimal source of energy, Dr. Mercola shows how we can harness the benefits of fat and ketones for clean-burning fuel in the quest for optimal health.”
— Michael Stroka, J.D., M.B.A., M.S., C.N.S., L.D.N., executive director, Board for Certification of Nutrition Specialists
“In 2017, we have many chronic illness epidemics in the USA. At the center of most of those epidemics is the toxic, nutrient-depleted, dysfunctional human cell. And research is now showing us that the most important organelle in that cell contributing to most of these diseases is the mitochondria. In his book Fat for Fuel, Joe Mercola has given us a practical blueprint for how to revive our mitochondria using diet as a powerful foundation, with a few other added simple tools, such as intermittent fasting, exercise, light therapy, and some supplemental nutrients. Dr. Mercola tested the Mitochondrial Metabolic Therapy recommendations he makes in this book
— W. Lee Cowden, M.D., M.D.(H), chairman of scientific advisory board, Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine”Science has already shown that eating fat can make you thin. In this pathbreaking book, Dr. Joseph Mercola goes a critical step further, revealing that using fat as your main fuel source can heal your body at a mitochondrial level, restoring energy and well-being and even helping fight cancer and other diseases. Impeccably researched and passionately argued, Fat for Fuel dispels dangerous myths about ‘healthful’ diets, reveals truths the food industry won’t tell you about the food you eat, and starts you on a path to radically transforming your health.”
— Mark Hyman, M.D., #1 New York Times best-selling author of Eat Fat Get Thin and Director of the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Functional Medicine”Fat for Fuel is a landmark contribution from Dr. Joe Mercola. . . . Metabolism at its core consists of how our mitochondria utilize nutrients, and Dr. Mercola educates his readers on how to choose the nutrients that optimize mitochondrial function. This book will contribute greatly toward our health goals for our entire population as more and more health-care professionals wake up to this understanding of the importance of optimizing mitochondrial metabolism. Fat for Fuel brings mitochondrial function into the mainstream for the healthy benefit of everyone. Bravo!”
— J. William (Will) LaValley, M.D.
“Dr. Mercola is a deep thinker with a passion for seeking knowledge about the inner workings of the human body and an open mind about the role of successful alternative treatments that have hard evidence behind them. Dr. Mercola has a knack for describing difficult scientific concepts in simple and entertaining terms that a non-expert can understand. The information he provides is priceless: the result of decades of searching for, and finding, the truths that will keep you on the path to healthy living. You can’t afford not to read this book!”
— Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., senior research scientist, MIT
“Dr. Mercola proves once again that he is at the very forefront of natural healing and wellness. With medical science understanding more and more how mitochondrial dysfunction leads to chronic disease, Dr. Mercola provides a simple, natural healing plan with this important new book.”
— Jason Fung, M.D., nephrologist and author of The Complete Guide to Fasting
“A revolution is growing in medicine, one that revolves around a change from seeing the cell as a membrane-bound bag of water controlled by the all-powerful DNA to a more fluid conception of the cell centered on the central role of the mitochondria. Dr. Mercola is at the forefront of this exciting revolution, and this book gives you both the theoretical basis and practical suggestions for supporting your mitochondria and regaining better health. I would encourage everyone to read this book and strongly consider following Dr. Mercola’s many helpful suggestions and guidelines.”
— Thomas Cowan, M.D.
“A book like Fat for Fuel has been a long time coming. Backed by a wealth of research, Dr. Mercola makes the definitive case that fat, not sugar, is the power source on which our bodies are meant to run, and he outlines what changes we can make in our daily lives to use fat as fuel. KU Integrative Medicine has been waiting for this book!”
— Jeanne A. Drisko, M.D., C.N.S, F.A.C.N., Director, KU Integrative Medicine, and Riordan endowed professor of orthomolecular medicine, University of Kansas Medical Center
“Dr. Mercola is one of the most brilliant minds in modern medicine, and he has achieved a true masterpiece with Fat for Fuel. Why? The book defies the status quo and reveals the truth behind everything from why fasting is a healthy habit to why you need to become a fat-burning machine. He even shocks us with the details on how iron can negatively impact mitochondrial health (you’ll be surprised). This book is a must-read if you want to optimize your body and brain while systematically eliminating a host of risk factors for chronic disease.”
— Ben Greenfield, BenGreenfieldFitness.com (Dr. Mercola’s favorite fitness podcast)
“In a bold voice and in plain language, Dr. Mercola continues his role as nutrition pioneer for America and the world. This book will educate, embolden, and empower consumers to take charge of their health destiny. Dr. Mercola, pro-health instead of pro-industry, shows us how we can bring in healthy fats and take a number of other key steps to right our own ships. This book should be a wake-up call to spur the medical and dental professions to take nutrition counseling seriously.”
— Charlie Brown, J.D., Consumers for Dental Choice
“Fat for Fuel consolidates the latest cutting-edge metabolic discoveries into an easy-to-follow system for optimizing your health at the cellular level. It gives people the tools and the knowledge to empower themselves and customize their own dietary therapy.”
— Aaron Davidson, founder of Cronometer
“Fat for Fuel goes well beyond a book on the health benefits of eating the right types of fat to offer tremendous insights on how to power up your health by ramping up metabolism and boosting cellular energy. It is an incredible book written by a truly insightful thought leader. My hope is that this book will produce the tipping point leading to needed changes in our collective thinking about the power of nutrition as medicine. I highly recommend this book!”
— Michael T. Murray, N.D., co-author of The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine
“Dr. Mercola presents a well-thought-out, well-written case for a healthy diet that is surprisingly high in fats. Over the years I taught many a student about mitochondrial function, and it is a pleasure to see proper emphasis on this all-important cellular powerhouse. Fat for Fuel deserves serious consideration by anyone looking for practical, powerful ways to improve their health.”
— Andrew W. Saul, Ph.D., editor, Orthomolecular Medicine News Service
“Fat for Fuel is a crucial read to obtain and maintain health, especially in the modern pandemic of inflammation-driven chronic diseases. This important book teaches principles most people have not yet heard and extends its reach beyond the small group of practitioners around the world who are already utilizing these methods. Implementing the principles outlined in this book has proved life-changing for thousands and I now expect that this information will transform millions. These tools and strategies are ‘the real deal,’ and a proven answer to our current state of dis-ease. The science presented here is clear and well-documented and will change the way you think about what really brings you health and healing.”
— Daniel Pompa, D.C.
“Fat for Fuel comes at the perfect time. With the cost of health care soaring, we have to take responsibility for protecting our health instead of simply treating disease. Understanding the mechanisms of how we function is essential to a healthy body and brain, and modern-day revolutionary Dr. Mercola has relentlessly dug through the research to bring this latest and greatest knowledge of our bodies to the bookshelf. Not only does this page-turner highlight the need for fat in our diet, it shows us how to prepare our bodies to process and utilize it most efficiently—a key ingredient in the overall strategy to attain optimal health.”
— Erin Elizabeth, investigative journalist, author of In the Lymelight, and founder of HealthNutNews.com
“I had been playing around with low-carb and keto cooking on and off for a year but not making much progress toward my weight-loss goals. After reading Fat for Fuel I understand that I was limited by a kindergarten-level understanding of the ketogenic diet compared to what I needed to know and do in order to be successful. My father’s recent death due to Alzheimer’s has motivated me to be deadly serious about doing whatever I can to avoid this and other chronic diseases. I’ve read hundreds of nutrition books over my lifetime but this one is my favorite and the one I know will make the biggest impact on your health if you have the commitment to follow it to the letter. Once again, an outstanding contribution from Dr. Mercola!”
— Dr. Kendra Pearsall, N.M.D., founder of Enlita.com
“Clear the brain fog, build up your energy, prevent disease, be happy! Dr. Mercola shatters the fat myth and shows us the way to ultimate health and healing.”
— Dr. Alberto Villoldo, co-author of Power Up Your Brain

April 14, 2012
Today is my 21st day (April, 14 2012).
I am one of those people who can stick to a diet, but can’t lose weight. I’ve tried everything out there. One some diets I’ve even gained weight (the 90s Ornish plan with dairy, Nutrisystem, Atkins) while family members have lost weight eating the same exact things. 21 Day Weight Loss Kickstart PDF explained WHY I didn’t lose or even gained weight on diets and what I could do that was different and might offer me some success. I thought I was doomed to feeling and looking lousy, and am so grateful I was wrong.
I lost 6 lbs in three weeks, steadily, easily. If I can lose 6lbs with my stubborn metabolism, then I would guess most people might have even greater success.
I was never hungry, and at the end of each day I’d lie in bed thinking how nice it is to have a sensation of satiety but not to feel bloated, starved, or guilty. To have enjoyed–really enjoyed–my food and felt healthy, had more energy, and been more comfortable in my body and my clothes. I have been craving this kind of feeling on a deep level, but have never been able to figure out how to effect it in my life.
At first, I found the plan a little intimidating. But if you can make it through the first day you can make it through 21 days. Day 2 is even easier, and by the end of the first week you won’t even have to think about it.
My retired mother went on it with me, and she had no problem with it either. She is a diabetic and controls her diabetes very carefully with diet. She said her blood sugar fluctuated more than normal the first few days, but then stabilized nicely and she hasn’t had a problem since then and is really enjoying being able to eat a wider variety of foods now, including some things she just couldn’t eat at all before. She has high cholesterol and I will update when she has her next lipid panel. No significant effect from this diet on her renal or fibromyalgia problems, but perhaps that will change over time. I am hypoglycemic, and do very well on this eating plan in that regard.
Yes, it’s vegan. For 21 days. You are not committing to veganism for life, just to see how you feel when you eliminate certain types of foods and increase other types. This diet will not make you start wearing Birkenstocks, join PETA, or grow out your armpit hair. I have no intention of becoming a vegan for ethical or political reasons. I do think that the vegan way of eating presented in 21 Day Weight Loss Kickstart PDF, however, is based on sound science, and, most importantly, has worked for me.
I will probably start re-incorporating animal products at some point. I travel, I live in a rural community where there are sources for animal products where I know what they were fed and how they were treated. I don’t have a need to totally commit to veganism for life, but for now, this works.
I feel great. I thought feeling and looking good were gone with my youth, but I have more energy now that I can remember having in a decade. I never feel bloated. I never feel hungry. My mood has been naturally elevated as a result of this eating plan (this is NOT a diet). Meal prep can be as simple or complex as fits your lifestyle. I no longer feel my joints aching at the end of the day, even though I am much more active every day now.
I am able to eat foods on this plan that I’ve thought for years would be off limits for me forever. I have really, truly enjoyed my food for the first time since I can remember. Food has become more delicious and I never feel deprived or hungry or feel like it’s a struggle to stick with the plan.
Most supermarkets have products you can use to adapt recipes. There are a few things your supermarket might not carry, like nutritional yeast, but if you can’t get them at a local Whole Foods or health food store, you can order them on . Try the frozen foods section of your grocery store and look for brands like Boca, Morningstar, or Amy’s for meal components (like veggie burgers or meat substitutes) or entire frozen meals. Keep lettuce and tortillas on hand for quick wraps when you need to eat on the run. Amy’s makes a great vegan frozen bean burrito and also a good rice crust vegan cheese pizza. Daiya cheese substitute is the best I’ve found, but I hardly felt the need to substitute for cheese after the first week. Cashew and nutritional yeast cream (sounds weird, but it’s great) is so good and fabulous on salads or veggies or sandwiches. I found many foods in my supermarket as well as Whole Foods to be appropriate, but when I went to Trader Joe’s after learning how to read labels, I was amazed at how much fat and sodium was packed into the products there, so I would not recommend shopping there for most of your food if you have other choices.
The book Fat for Fuel PDF gives a good shopping list and suggestion for new things to try–follow that list for your first week as you explore this way of eating and you should be able to learn how to navigate your supermarket and kitchen in new ways.
Get rid of the mentality of deprivation and allow yourself to EAT, enjoy, and feel satisfied and feel good about being in your own body.
Buy a vegan cookbook or if you don’t want to spend the money, google “vegan lowfat recipe blog” and you will find lots of recipes and cooking tips. It takes a bit of adjustment, but really not that much. There are great ways to substitute for meat and dairy. One caveat: meat and dairy substitutes are NOT meat and dairy. They don’t taste like meat and dairy and if you expect them to then you will be disappointed. They will, however, satisfy your cravings for those tastes and textures if you give them a chance. And then somewhere along the line you may even discover you no longer even crave them all that much. Along with sugar, fats, and a slew of other things that may be slowing down your weight loss, sapping your energy, and slowly and subtly chipping away at your health.
The book Fat for Fuel PDF doesn’t call for exercise, but after about a week, my activity increased because I had so much energy I just HAD to do more. It’s been wonderful, and my productivity has increased greatly.
If you want to make excuses and continue as you are, or if you want someone to do the work for you, then don’t buy this book Fat for Fuel PDF. It is not for you, and you will be disappointed. If you are willing to do the personal work for 21 days to see what a radical (but really not very difficult) positive dietary change can do for you, I highly recommend 21 Day Weight Loss Kickstart PDF.
21 Day Weight Loss Kickstart PDF is for people with a high level of personal responsibility and desire to explore changes that may positively impact their lives. If that’s you, then invest in this book V, and good luck to you.
There are some good you tube videos featuring Dr. Barnard. doesn’t allow external links, but you can do a youtube search on “Dr. Neal Barnard Part 1” and the parts 2, 3, and 4.
UPDATE: May 6 2012
Went for a regular physical. My cholesterol, although not in the danger zone before the diet, is now down about 50 points on this diet. Triglycerides are down, too, and my cholesterol ratio is 2.4. I’m pretty pleased. I wish I could get my daughter to try this.
UPDATE: May 26, 2012
My mother had a lipid profile done. In two months on the diet her cholesterol is down 72 points. No cholesterol medicine could get her below 200, but this diet did. We are hoping to get her down another 30-40 points so she can get off the meds altogether. She’s down a size in her clothes. We watched “Forks Over Knives” and “Fat Sick and Nearly Dead” this month, which although we needed no motivation as the plan is easy once you lose your cravings, were both motivating and inspirational.
I am still doing well. Lost a couple more pounds (10 total on the diet–1 clothing size), eating even less processed foods, and feeling even better. Bags under my eyes are gone, and the dark circles that made me look old and tired are not completely gone, but are much less noticeable. My skin looks and feels better. I have absolutely no desire to eat off plan. When I get the rare urge to indulge, I am perfectly able to do it within the parameters set by Dr. Barnard for healthy eating. Traveling was a bit difficult, but I did it with a little extra planning and preparation.
I burned out my magic bullet mixer so I splurged and bought a Vitamix and it makes whole foods preparation a lot easier and some things just come out so much better than in a plain blender. Soups, smoothies, and hummus are much smoother and creamier in the Vitamix and make it easier and tastier to get in lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. A crock pot is helpful for soups and bean dishes.
I initially turned up my nose at folks who said their tastes changed and food tastes better, but guess what–it does. I liked fruits and veggies just fine before this, but now there’s a much greater pleasure in eating them that I can’t quite describe.
I am not at all sorry that I bought 21 Day Weight Loss Kickstart PDF and tried what Dr. Barnard suggests, I am only sorry I didn’t start this years ago.
UPDATE: April 2013.
I’m down about 20 lbs, and fit into my old clothes. I’ve never felt at all deprived and eat until I’m well satisfied every day. My cholesterol is down to 134 and my BP is down to normal as well.
Cooking is easy, and once I figured out a few things, traveling and eating this way is not a problem at all.
UPDATE: December 2013.
Still going strong. I’m down about 35 lbs total, and nearly 4 sizes. I feel great. I’ve been working with a plant-based doctor and my chronic fatigue is gone.
My mother, who is pushing 70, is off ALL of her meds, including the BP meds she’s been on since she was 35. She’s been at her goal weight for quite some time and is full of energy. We also got Barnard’s newest book Fat for Fuel PDF, and have incorporated some of those suggestions as well.
Eating like this is second nature and we no longer really think about it much. I no longer fear I’m going to balloon back up to my previous weight. No yo-yoing anymore.
UPDATE AUGUST 2, 2016
Still on a whole foods, plant-based diet and still doing well.
