The innovative guide that reveals how eating more fat—the smart kind—is the key to health, longevity, and permanent weight loss.

For years experts have told us that eating fat is bad. But by banning fat from our diets, we’ve deprived ourselves of considerable health benefits—and have actually sabotaged our own efforts to lose weight.

Though they originally came from vastly different schools of thought about diet and weight loss, renowned nutritionist Jonny Bowden and well-respected physician Steven Masley independently came to the same conclusion about why so many people continually fail to shed pounds and get healthy. It all comes back to a distinction far more important than calories vs. carbs or paleo vs. plant-based: smart fat vs. dumb fat.

In Smart Fat, they explain the amazing properties of healthy fat, including its ability to balance hormones for increased energy and appetite control, and its incredible anti-inflammatory benefits. The solution for slimming down—and keeping the pounds off for life—is to “smart-fat” your meals, incorporating smart fats with fiber, protein, and most importantly, flavor. Bowden and Masley identify smart fats, explain what not to eat, and provide a thirty-day meal plan and fifty recipes based on the magic formula of fat, fiber, protein, and flavor.

It’s time to unlearn what we think we know about food. Getting smart about fat—and everything you eat—and learning to smart-fat your meals is the only solution you'll ever need.

Why I Had Weight-Loss Surgery

It was Jennifer Weiner’s father—a child psychiatrist—who first made her feel bad about her weight. “When I was 11 or 12, he would say, ‘You’re fat, you’re ugly, no boy is going to want to date you,’ ” says Weiner. “He made me feel ashamed of how I looked, and eating made me not feel ashamed—it let me not feel anything. Then, of course, I’d eat and feel even more ashamed.” Just talking about those memories brings Weiner, 46, close to tears. As the bestselling novelist (Good in Bed, In Her Shoes) reveals in her new book of personal essays, Hungry Heart, her dad was “wonderful” when she was very

Platt vs. Fat

LIKE THE MANY experts I’ve consulted over the decades during the course of countless protein diets, Mediterranean diets, all-fruit diets, and assorted other doomed starvation regimes, Tanya Zuckerbrot exudes the kind of practiced optimism that skinny, Type-A, successful professionals often do. There’s a small stone statue of the Buddha in her posh midtown offices, a soothing, white-toned space that feels less like a medical-consultation room than like something you’d see on the set of The View.
