“The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”
– Ann Wigmore
“He who takes medicine and neglects diet wastes the skill of the physician.”

There are mainstream doctors, and there are open-minded doctors who are few, but dedicated, within the alternative health community. Dr. Mercola is one of these select few who isn’t afraid to not only call it how it is, but back up what he says with significant contributions and hard work.
Anyone that has been reading Dr. Mercola’s work for quite some time knows what kind of quality of work they will get. For those that might be newer, as all of us were at one time, Dr. Mercola has been putting in hard work on his website, and he has been dedicated to help others find truths within the sphere of health, no matter how uncomfortable they may be.
It is no surprise then that in Fat For Fuel, Dr. Mercola has come out once again pulling no punches with his new effort to show the truth behind the myths claiming fats being unhealthy. Better yet, he goes beyond that to provide the ample benefits that are to be had by eating healthy fats, which harbor immense benefits.
Fat For Fuel is a veritable crash course on how to streamline your health. Some of the most salient points in the book, which stand to help a lot of individuals, is that Dr. Mercola takes a very comprehensive approach into showing how to cut off the supply line for cancer cells, how to improve your overall health with simple dietary/lifestyle changes, and even discusses how to maintain healthy mitochondria, which helps maintain optimal health reducing the likelihood of cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Type 2 Diabetes and other diseases.
All of this comes about through what Dr. Mercola calls Mitochondrial Metabolic Therapy [MMT]. Essentially, what MMT does is target mitochondria, which aids in bringing about healing of chronic disease. This is accomplished by making sure the body uses fat as a primary fuel, rather than using glucose, which is far less optimal.
The system that Mercola provides is rather comprehensive in its approach, while not overlooking common issues that individuals may face in their journey towards optimal health. The book offers considerations like when to eat and how much time to leave between, what cooking oils to avoid that are deleterious to health, ways to help individuals self-monitor their own health, and much more.
Extensively covered as well are the many benefits of fasting. Thankfully, there are a few fasting options offered, as well as many of the do’s and don’ts as well. Also covered there in are Mercola’s own favorite fast, as well as other fasts which also help the body reach optimal health.
The book even covers many of the extensive issues that are prevalent within individuals with too much iron. This part alone is quite salient since it couples directly too many other health issues like Cancer, Diabetes, Obesity, and more.
In its totality, Fat For Fuel is an in-depth look at how the marvel of the human body can achieve healing by providing it with the proper fuel source. If you’re interested in healing yourself without having to deal with the myriad issues of that conventional medicine espouses, then consideration of this book should be done. One thing is for sure, after reading Fat For Fuel people will never think of fats – healthy fats! – in the same way ever again.
