What the Fat? Our guide to Low Carb Healthy Fat living.

It’s time to flip the pyramid and break free of the fat phobia. This book is more than just a diet plan or a cookbook – written by the Fat Professor, the Whole-food Dietitian & the Michelin-trained Chef – it’s a new way of eating that will change your life. For good.

What the fast! cover

What the Fast! Our book on “Super fasting”.

Back at the cutting edge of the latest science, What the Fast! is a practical guide to get you started with intermittent fasting (IF) or Super-Fasting (SF) as we now call it. Plus it comes with all the science and the recipes too.

Super-fasting allows for super wellbeing from effortless weight loss to enhanced immune and brain function. If you want to drop a few kilos, stay sharp and get your health on track, then this is for you. By simply not eating breakfast and lunch on Mondays and Tuesdays and then supercharging your dinner meals, you will become a super faster.

Every single cell in our body has the ability to spring clean and repair itself, we simply need to stop feeding them from time to time. Nature certainly has it sussed! And so does the 2016 Nobel prize winner who discovered it. This self-repair of immune cells, skin cells, brain cells and more, is known as autophagy, and it only happens when you don’t eat. Super-Fasting unlocks the biology of super aging. It can help us live a long, healthy life right up until the end, the exact opposite of the long-suffering demise that modern day has to offer. Living well for long, and then dropping dead sounds like a good mantra to us.

Ok it sounds great, but do you think you’ve got what it takes? Don’t worry, we will show you how it’s done and help make it work for you. In What the Fast?, we bring you practical tips, super meal recipes, inspiring success stories and science that comes alive… everything you need to make food and fasting work for you.


Take advantage of an unfair advantage.

Retraining your body and brain and turning on your fat burning almost seems like an unfair advantage when it’s applied to the sporting environment.

For decades, the brightest minds in the athletic performance nutrition field have had carbs pegged as the ultimate good guy. You have been told that the best way to fuel the active body is through carbohydrates, by consuming extra carbs, before, during, and after exercise. As a result, many of us have been enslaved by an outdated mantra which has pushed us to eat carb-laden food to fuel our performance. This approach robs the human body of the flexibility it craves to switch between different energy systems and ways of producing fuel.

As we have already outlined in our first book What The Fat? consuming a high-carb diet is likely to lead to inflammation and poor health in the long run. For fit people, this is a tragedy. The people who value their health and well-being highly. The people who have done EXACTLY what they have been told have often ended up sick, tired and injured because of a high-carb, low-fat diet.

In this practical guide we present compelling evidence, inspiring real-life stories from very successful athletes, and simple ways to eat Low-Carb, Healthy-Fat. We need you to step outside the square and reset. We will ask you to forget everything you were taught by your old-school sports performance nutritionist and learn how to become the ultimate fat burning athletic machine.

Let the games begin and food give you a competitive edge.

  1. Hi Grant. I’m an enthusiastic follower of LCHF and your blog. My son and I are always in conflict about LCHF. He’s a very fit psychologist who wants to see hard scientific evidence that LCHF is the right kind of diet for us as opposed to the ‘prudent diet’ we’ve all been fed for the last 40 odd years. Are you able to give me some links to research that I can pass on to him?

  2. is there a guide book specifically for females ? thanks Cindy

  3. Hi Grant ,the husband and I bought your book ‘what the fat’ just around Christmas and have been following your eating guild , with swimming every second day ,plus I do spin class 2x times a week.Now this husband of mine has lost 9kgsand I have lost basically nothing! Why is this ?What f… Is going on ,I feel better but no weight loss.Please can you you help 😦
    Regards Jayne

    • YEs we see this male-female difference quite a bit. And I guess its less fun being the one who shows no change. What are you restricting your carbs to? And will you consider the odd fasting day – you still have to get overall calories down

  4. Hi Grant,many thanks for your reply ,this is what we are eating .
    BF:blueberries(half cup ) ,greek yoghurt few nuts and seeds
    Lunch:omelet 2eggs,spinch ,half tomato ,sprinkle Parmesan cheese cooked in butter,husband has three eggs,or today had 2 poached eggs on poached spinch drizzled with good olive oil husband had three eggs (they are small eggs)4bits 70%dark chocolate husband 6to 8 bits
    Dinner:some sort of proten with veg .proten cooked in cocnut oil .veg are either raw salad ,stemed with bit of butter or roasted in cocnut oil.we don’t eat potatoes ,very seldom do we have kumara,no bread or wheat or biscuits,no booze ,no sugar ,do have fruit .have decafe coffee in morning with cream ,husband has green tea ,together we have rice cracker with cream cheese an tomato ,afternoon sack ,fruit with 6-8 almonds or something along those lines .we both drink green tea only ,apart for my mid morning decafe.
    After dinner the husband insists on having a very very large dollop whip cream (no sugar) with a bit of fruit (6 boysenberries) ,I have it as well with not as much cream.This plan has worked so well for the husband .I am 63years old he is only 56 yrs .Dont think I could physically do more than I do in a day as I have very recently been told I have osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. I feel if I could lose 10 -20kgs life might improve.With the amount of food I comsume I don’t know where I could cut back .The husband is living the dream ,eating chocolate and cream and losing weight Is your book and eating plan design more for the male body.
