Eat Fat, Get Thin!: Readers' Comments

One of the nice things about writing with the aim of helping people is the mail a book engenders. It is not always easy to find an author — they tend to hide behind their publishers. When readers take the trouble to write they really do mean to pass on their thanks (usually). It makes the work worthwhile.

To all of you have bought Eat Fat, Get Thin! many thanks from me.
My aim is to get the overweight off the yo-yo treadmill so that they can live a better life. I do this with thanks to the late Dr Richard Mackarness whose work in this field so changed my family's lives in 1962.

You won't believe this diet will work — but it does!
Prima magazine front cover

"Fancy a sausage sandwich? But not a porky body? Well, get stuck into the Eat Fat, Get Thin! diet, our amazing and exclusive diet plan that turns conventional weight loss wisdom on its head — and it works! We had to bully our five human guinea pigs into testing it as they couldn't believe that they'd end up losing weight. But they did and so can you. So get out the frying pan . . ."

Nigella Lawson eats fat, gets thin

"I eat eggs and bacon for breakfast. I eat cheese when I'm hungry. I cook in butter. The food is wonderful. And it makes you lose weight! But it is strange to fly in the face of every dietary admonition of the age. You do feel that something bad will happen as you tuck into steak Bearnaise, or great wodges of brie — all the things we've been trained to avoid. But once the knee-jerk guilt goes, it's easy.
It is the perfect diet for those who love food."

Your fantastic book

Two weeks ago my partner and I were in London browsing through a small bookshop.
I'm a diabetic and my partner has had problems with his digestive system for some years. We were both desperate to a) lose weight (me being a hefty 12.5 stone) b) find some way of helping my other half to a more "settled digestive system".
We stumbled across your book by accident....both of us read it on the train on the way back to Yorkshire and were amazed how much sense it all made.
We've both been following your guidelines for a week, and I can't tell you the difference it's made to us. Although I haven't weighed myself yet, my clothes tell their own story. My partner looks better, feels better, we both have better night's sleep and my blood sugar levels are stable almost all the time. I have more energy, can cope with my stressful job better, and subsequently our relationship has improved.
Thank you - I've recommended the book to everyone I know who have tried everything to lose their excess weight.

"I don't usually eat fat so it took a bit of getting used to. . . You never feel hungry so the diet is easier to sustain than low fat diets. I struggled a bit to believe that I'd lose weight, but I did."

Jane Peters (age 37)

"Having read your book I now follow the regime you recommend and must say that I no longer have any weight worries, feel fitter than ever and enjoy real food again."

Malcolm Chance (age 75)

"I didn't feel as if I was on a diet because you can eat til you're full.
"The diet also teaches you to have three proper meals a day instead of snacking.
"I'm surprised at how much energy I have. I'm more alert, particularly in the morning, and I'm sleeping better.
"I enjoy the cooked breakfast — I feel I'm indulging in something I shouldn't have but without the guilt. Normally I'd have cereal in the morning and I'd start to feel hungry by mid morning. I'm also feeling healthier and I don't get bloated after meals, which I used to."

Kim Morphew (age 20)

"I decided to take your advice and cut down a great deal on carbohydrates . . . we increased our intake of animal protein a little and green vegetables . . . and use lard and butter where I would have used cooking oil and margarine, and cream replaced custard. We took to full-cream milk . . . we enjoy the fat on meat and I use dripping for frying and roasting, just like we used to years ago.
" I don't need to tell you that we are both very well now and I am delighted that [I have lost 21 lbs]. . . I feel so much lighter and have boundless energy. My husband and I are very happy and so is our daughter.
" I have talked to many people about your book and given away six of them."

Gillian Reid

"It was fantastic to eat things I normally wouldn't eat. It's not easy to kick the habit of buying low fat food, but there's never the struggle you have with other diets because you're hungry."

Jo Barnes (age 29)

"I didn't think it was going to work! I've been on lots of diets and I was always fighting cravings. I couldn't believe you can eat until you are full and the food tastes great. It takes longer to get hungry and you feel fuller longer. I'm feeling healthier and I've got more energy."

Betty Battle (age 49)

"I can't believe this is working — I enjoy it too much!"

"You are what you eat." What a silly expression.
It gives the unwary a quite wrong impression.
I ate up my cabbage as child and adult
But making me green was not the result.

If a dog is fed beef she matures as a cow?
If you think that is so then I want to know how.
Does a horse become grass and a panda a leaf?
To me the idea is a stupid belief.

Perhaps it only applies to the human race.
Is a vegan a nut if that is the case?
I think that is likely but it's only my view
Let's face it, what you eat is just up to you.

Fat — saturated — is there at our birth
And eating that sort should not add to girth.
But polyunsaturates changes our fat
From the kind Nature gave. Do we really want that?

Our stone age ancestors, our long ago kin
Had the same kind of fat in their bodies and skin
And covering nerves so they work as they should.
But it's all of the kind we are told is not good.

If we all ate the foods in Nature's great store
That our own evolution has fitted us for:
Cut out the unnatural, processed, refined
Our brains appetite would keep size confined.

Man in pre-history could eat only meat,
To find plants in ice — an impossible feat.
He left tools and weapons and bones by the ton
Signs of cereals and cooking and fire there are none.

Man can't digest grain till it's ground and had flame
The evidence on weight says carbohydrate's to blame.
If you read the research it's a fact you can't dodge
That eating steamed puddings will turn you to stodge.
