About The Great Cholesterol Myth Cookbook

A detailed, yet easy-to-understand explanation of what it really means to eat for heart health…

For decades, low-fat and low-cholesterol diets have been touted as the way to prevent and reverse heart disease. In our 2012 book, The Great Cholesterol Myth (you can watch a short video about it here), Nutritionist Jonny Bowden, Ph.D. and I debunked that assertion, arguing that fat —often curtailed on traditional low-cholesterol, “heart-healthy” diets— is not the enemy and may in fact be part of the solution.

To make it that much easier for you to practice what we preach…

This year, we released our latest book: The Great Cholesterol Myth Cookbook, a breezy, conversational companion book to The Great Cholesterol Myth in which we provide a detailed, yet easy-to-understand explanation of what it really means to eat for heart health. Dr. Bowden and I also teamed up with Naturopathic Doctor and Nutritionist Deidre Rawlings to bring you a robust, detailed meal plan and roadmap to optimal heart health that includes:

• 100 delicious and nutritious recipes to prevent and reverse heart disease
• Information on how to target key factors like inflammation and HDL cholesterol
• Tips to ensure your diet provides necessary nutrients
• New ways to enjoy foods that you thought you had to give up forever.

Through The Great Cholesterol Myth Cookbook, we explain how substituting grains and carbohydrates for fat and healthy proteins in traditional “low cholesterol” diets may actually exacerbate heart health issues. Our book illustrates how a diet that is low in sugar and other inflammatory foods and ingredients, but high in healthy fats, protein, antioxidants, and key nutrients is the best course of action to prevent and reverse heart disease.

With it, you’ll learn how many of the foods you thought you’d lost forever are in fact not only back on your table but can even aid in heart health; while the meal plans and recipes will show you how to incorporate the right foods into your diet while improving and maintaining optimal cardiac health.

    Do you include wheat in your recipes? I’ve been reading Wheat Belly and so many of the problems I’ve been having sure fit the profile. I’ve been avoiding much wheat for some time, but totally wheat free for one week and have started sleeping all night, no more heartburn, no acid reflux, and just feel much better. My main concern is small LDL particles. FYI, i just had my 2nd stent put in Nov 25. Same place a first which was 2/10/99.

    Hi Doc, So please that i have stumbled accross your web site. So much interesting information. I am very concerned as I have been eating the lchf diet since july 2013 and my cholesterol levels have gone up from 8.4 to 10.6 (uk measures). My doctor was shocked and I now have an appointment to is a cardiologist. I am worried that he will insist that i take a statin, which i have done in the passed but had horrible side effects. I am definitely going to purchase your cookbook. Maybe I am I have not completely understood the low carb way of eating. Hopefully your book will help. Thank you.
