The Meat Fix: How a Lifet.

The Meat Fix is the story of how eating meat again after twenty-six vegetarian years changed John Nicholson's life powerfully for the better, and his quest to understand why the supposedly healthy diet he had existed on was actually damaging him. He is not a scientist and this is not your standard diet book.

The Meat Fix - John Nicholson. For years I had lived with what would come to be known as IBS: Irritable Bowel Syndrome. As I began eating meat, I stopped eating high-load carbohydrates such as potatoes and wheat. I cut out all vegetable oils except olive, ate lots of lard, beef dripping, butter, cream and full-fat milk.

For twenty-six years, John Nicholson was a vegetarian. No meat, no fish, no guilt. He was a walking advert for healthy eating. Brown rice, fruit, vegetables, low fat and low cholesterol - in the battle of good food versus bad, he should have been on the winning side. The body is a temple - but, as John Nicholson discovered, we may have forgotten how to worship it. Download from free file storage.

John Nicholson’s book presents the story of how eating meat again, after twenty-six vegetarian years, changed his life powerfully for the better. In 2010, I decided to give up my supposedly healthy lifestyle and embrace good old-fashioned meat. From that day on, I ate red meat four or five days a week. I gobbled the fat on chops, chicken skin and pork crackling. I feasted on everything we’re told to avoid.

The Meat Fix is the story of how eating meat again after twenty-six vegetarian years changed John Nicholson's life powerfully for the better, and his quest to understand why the supposedly healthy diet he had existed on was actually damaging him.

He is not a scientist and this is not your standard diet book. Rather, it is an explanation of how Nicholson discovered what works for him and why we should all look at nutritional advice through a clear lens, not the warped prism of what has become conventional dietary advice. This is a surprising, often hilarious, and shocking journey of discovery.

This is now my 12th book on nutrition. I had come to the realization, much like this author, that how and what I was eating was not working for me. I was eating the standard diet laid out by the medical establishment for as long as I can remember. Later in life, I noticed that I had to eat more and more in order to stay full and satisfied. This lead to weight gain (I was never over-weight but the extra weight did not suit me). Trying to eat less created a lot of anxiety and stress because I was always hungry, and this lead to binge eating. When I changed my eating habits by ditching grains and sugar and replacing those missing calories with healthy fat and protein, my life changed. No longer hungry all the time, even temper, better sleep, normal bowel movements, and more energy. The author is dead right about what you can expect.
The only thing that bothered me was at least one of the paragraphs I read was cut and pasted from the website reference directly into the book without rewording to avoid plagiarism. I am a teacher, so this bothered me. Other than that, it is an easy read for most people and just informative enough to prompt those who are truly interested to go and do further research on health and nutrition.
I also like that the author recommends NOT eating meat of any kind that may come from factory farms!! That will include all the stuff you get in most grocery stores, and I am afraid restaurants. After researching the horrors that animals go through in that feedlot system, I am only getting my meat from either local farmers where the animals actually live the way they did 100 years ago, or meat from cooperative farms who source their foods to places like USWellness Meats. Look it up on the web. Only grass-fed and finished animals allowed! No grain fed animals. We must all work to put a stop to the horrors of factory farming. Please don't start eating meat without finding out how the animals are fed and treated. Look up factory farming on YouTube if you want a wake-up call.

Oh this book was so fun to read! What a joy, what a treat! I experienced a very similar transformation in my life when I realized my vegan diet- all that soy, corn and wheat- was killing me and my body wanted meat. 20 years vegetarian- I never would have thought it would happen to me. I loved to read that this happened to someone else in much the same way. The transition to eating meat was not hard- not on the conscience and not on the stomach. The author writes about it so well. Much food for thought! I was going to pass this book on to a library so someone else could enjoy it but I love it so much I'm keeping it for myself a bit longer. (And if the time is right for any vegetarians I know- I'll give it to them!!)

While this book doesn't contain anything new to anyone who read Gary Taubes "Good calories, bad calories, or his more recent "Why we get fat, and what to do about it", it is still a worthy reading companion to those who seeks a different point of view and a witty and sarcastic British narrative.

It's more like Tom Naughton "Fat Head" movie - a good introduction into everything that is wrong with the modern Western diet, told with with good humor and plenty of factual refutations of the current medical establishment advise, same advise that would load you up with carbs and sugars in order to treat you later for diabetes type 2 or worse.

A relatively funny book detailing some of the issues of a long-term vegan/vegetarian diet high in carbs and soy on general health. It is an entertaining read, but there are a few books on the same subject that are a little more scientific.

Well written ,with lots of plenty of humour to keep it interesting,as well as good facts to back up his experiences.
However ,he lets himself down when he allows the latent hippy to emerge when talking about the benefits of organic foods,with virtually
no real facts to back his claims .My own experience with organic food has included the toughest, most inedible lamb at an upmarket restaurant.As a New Zealander I can also assure him that virtually no lamb is air freighted to the UK,and is all grass fed outdoors for the whole of their lives,as are our cattle.

As an American, it is fun to read and decipher British writers. They have great colloquialism.

Also, I enjoy British humor, which this book has plenty of. His chapter on his vegetarian lifestyle was worth the read.

MisTereO
Very enjoyable read. Enjoy his humor not offended by his language
as are. Gives a little kick to the narrative.

It turns out that a vegan diet (long term) doesn't work for a lot of folks.

The author details over 26 years of vegan dietary eating, and finally giving that up because of IBD-like symptoms (and constant headaches, etc.) One serious point he makes is the (western) vegan attitude towards soy "foodoid" products -- totally industrial and so new to our system of food that one wonders and wonders... Many vegans have no problem chowing down soy foodoid products or highly gluten-saturated stuff like "seitan".

I'm much more impressed with vegetarian diets of long standing, as exist in India, where vegetarians (NOT vegans) eat ghee and paneer-style cheese, and avoid soy (unless fermented), and fake foodoid items such as faux cheese, faux burgers, and other undesirable byproducts of modern life.

This is a really good book. The author writes in a Brit style, bloody this and bloody that, and soy is spelt soya. But more importantly, he writes about his early upbringing, where people ate to nourish themselves. We did well, then. It's all the low fat and weird stuff we eat now that is bringing us down (and our body weights up). While his grandparents thought foreign cuisine to be from the devil, they also thought processed foods to have the same ultimate source.

He's not a dogmatist. He writes from the heart of his own experience. He returned to a diet which includes meat, and excludes nearly all soy, and solved his IBD and headache issues. He acknowledges an Omega-3 focus in fats.

No, his dietary healthy results don't equal "My Plate" here in the USA, but neither do mine. Worth the read.
