We talk about how we all got so fat and sick (hint: it has to do with the fats we're eating). Also, Sarah shares the three simple nutritional practices you can implement right now to lose weight, reduce inflammation, and gain energy. Plus much more!

Sarah earned her Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Furman University, where she was valedictorian of her class, graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa and subsequently receiving a Masters of Government Administration with a major in Public Financial Management from the University of Pennsylvania. Sarah worked for over 10 years in the field of Information Technology designing Financial Systems for private and government organizations.
As people so often do after a decade or so of working in the corporate world, Sarah wondered if there might be more to life. So she withdrew from the workaday world and started a consultancy business and eased into family life — eventually having three babies born naturally at a local birthing center. All three children spent their first night at home with their parents and have lived healthy, vibrant lives ever since.
Since 2002, Sarah has acted as Nutrition Educator and Chapter Leader for the Weston A. Price Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to getting the truth about nutrition out to the masses. In the summer of 2011, she joined the Weston A. Price Foundation as a Board Member.
What I Think About Sarah's Book, Get Your Fats Straight
I love it! It is an easy and informative read. To my knowledge, there's not another book like it. You'll get a good history lesson plus excellent health info, neither of which are overwhelming or above-your-head. Additionally, Sarah's advice in terms of what to implement in your life is so common sense and basic that you'll be ready to make changes TODAY. And finally, Sarah includes some really yummy-sounding recipes that use healthy fats. They're family approved and most are inexpensive to make.
It's a Kindle eBook, but you don't need a Kindle because amazon offers free Kindle apps for computers or mobile devices.
