A proven plan to reboot your body's natural ability to burn fat as fuel, allowing you to lose weight, gain energy, and achieve optimum health.
Over decades of research, renowned family physician Cate Shanahan, MD has discovered that our ability to use body fat for energy is essential to our health. But that ability is stunted by the Standard American Diet: the more we rely on sugar to feed our energy-starved brains, the more we overeat, harm our metabolism, and make unhealthy food choices.
In The Fatburn Fix, Dr. Shanahan proves that the key to weight loss, increased energy, and overall vitality lies in burning body fat for fuel. To lose weight without feeling tired or hungry, we need to repair our “fatburn” capabilities by retraining our bodies to burn fat, not sugar – and that means fixing our metabolism, first and foremost.
The Fatburn Fix lays out a revolutionary, step-by-step plan to help reboot your fatburn potential in as little as two weeks. By making a few changes to what you eat (and when)—such as cutting vegetable oils and sugar, and introducing intermittent fasting—your body will be able to better utilize body fat for energy.
Dr. Shanahan shares five important rules to fix your metabolism (and thus fix your fatburn):
1) Eat natural fats, not vegetable oils.
2) Eat slow-digesting carbs, not starchy carbs or sweets.
3) Seek salt.
4) Drink plenty of water.
5) Supplement with vitamins and minerals.
She then follows it with a customizable plan that takes you through two phases of metabolic repair, laying out breakfast, lunch, and dinner for each phase, and introducing the process of intermittent fasting. The plan is widely accessible and easy to follow, and will appeal to anyone looking for an alternative to ketogenic diets.
Once we fix our metabolism and allow our body to draw energy from its fat stores, we cut down cravings, snacking, and other unhealthy habits. Regaining your fatburn potential is the key to a new, healthier relationship between you and your body, paving the way to effortless weight loss, increased energy, and long-term health and happiness.
