Proteinaholic: How Our Obsession With Meat Is Killing Us and What We Can Do About It

By Garth M D Davis, Howard Jacobson

An acclaimed surgeon specializing in weight loss delivers a paradigm-shifting examination of the diet and health industry's focus on protein, explaining why it is detrimental to our health, and can prevent us from losing weight.

Whether you are seeing a doctor, nutritionist, or a trainer, all of them advise to eat more protein. Foods, drinks, and supplements are loaded with extra protein. Many people use protein for weight control, to gain or lose pounds, while others believe it gives them more energy and is essential for a longer, healthier life. Now, Dr. Garth Davis, an expert in weight loss asks, "Is all this protein making us healthier?"

The answer, he emphatically argues, is NO. Too much protein is actually making us sick, fat, and tired, according to Dr. Davis. If you are getting adequate calories in your diet, there is no such thing as protein deficiency. The healthiest countries in the world eat far less protein than we do and yet we have an entire nation on a protein binge getting sicker by the day.

As a surgeon treating obese patients, Dr. Davis was frustrated by the ever-increasing number of sick and overweight patients, but it wasn't until his own health scare that he realized he could do something about it. Combining cutting-edge research, with his hands-on patient experience and his years dedicated to analyzing studies of the world's longest-lived populations, this explosive, groundbreaking book reveals the truth about the dangers of protein and shares a proven approach to weight loss, health, and longevity.

A brilliant tour de force of how and why our addiction to animal protein is killing us. This book just may save your life and make all of your moments healthier. --Robert Ostfeld, M.D., MSc. Director, Cardiac Wellness Program, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center"
Dr. Davis is in the trenches applying science to patient care and a true expert. His experience and research is groundbreaking and "Proteinaholic" is a must read that will be the basis for reclaiming our health. This book will be in exam rooms in my clinic.--Joel Kahn MD, FACC - Clinical Professor of Medicine, Wayne State University School of Medicine and author of "The Whole Heart Solution""
