Bestselling author of Just Ride, Grant Peterson is coming out again to rewrite our understanding of what it means to be healthy. When you think of weight loss, you might think of trendy diets that eliminate fat and overemphasize superfoods like kale. This is usually accompanied by rigorous cardio routines that get your heart racing but are hard on your body.

Peterson wants to help you rearrange these health goals in a way that works best for you. In Eat Bacon, Don't Jog, readers learn the value of fat in their diets and discover just how overrated running is.

Each chapter of the book is concise and clear, split into three main categories: Food Particulars, Exercise Basics, and Exercise Particulars. In these chapters, you'll learn fundamentals like:

  • Never order an egg white omelet
  • Don't cheat your muscles with momentum
  • Crawl like a bug, but less efficiently

Eat Bacon, Don't Jog teaches us how to improve our health through discipline, the right exercises, and a low carb diet that's actually satisfying. With this new understanding of healthy living, Grant Peterson is in the best shape of his life, and he's ready to share his secrets.

FOOD BASICS

When you fail to lose weight, blame the diet. Really. A weight loss program that requires restraint, small portions, reduced calories, and more exercise is doomed from the start. It can work for a few miserable weeks, but it isn’t sustainable, and when you fail you’ll blame yourself. Then, after some time off from dieting and some weight gain, you try another diet with a different name that works in the same way and gives you the same results.

In the first two chapters, Food Basics and Food Particulars, I will explore three important points:

• Lowering your insulin is your salvation.

• Fat is your friend.

• Your excess body fat is due to the high-carb food you eat, not the calories you eat or exercise you avoid.

01

It comes down to insulin, but it starts with carbohydrates

When you eat cotton candy, bread, fruit, soda, or pasta, your body converts the carbs in them to a kind of sugar called glucose, and the glucose goes into your blood. I use the terms sugar and glucose interchangeably throughout the book. When you eat carbs, your blood glucose rises. Your blood sugar rises. It’s the same thing.

When you eat carbs, your blood sugar rises. Your body treats glucose in your blood as poison, and your pancreas leaps to the rescue by secreting insulin, a hormone that determines where you get your energy from; what you burn for calories. When you eat carbs and raise your sugar, then your insulin, you burn sugar, not fat. You can think of this as your body’s way of lowering the levels of poison glucose—burning it up.

So, yes—the insulin gets the glucose out of your blood—saving your life—and into your cells to be burned as energy so you can move, walk, run, ride a bike. And that’s the last good thing insulin does.

The insulin hit list

• Insulin converts calories to fat. Even the calories from fat-free food become body fat.

• Insulin stores fat on your hips, belly, back—wherever you tend to pack it on, insulin puts it there.

• Insulin prevents you from using body fat as fuel. When you exercise hard and long, you think you’re burning body fat, but you’re not. Insulin won’t let you burn off body fat.

• Insulin keeps you hungry. It makes you want more of the same carbohydrates that started the cycle in the first place.

And it doesn’t stop there. Insulin is also a force behind many of the diseases we either live with or fear. Reducing insulin levels is the key to losing fat and a key to getting healthier, and there is only one way to do it: Quit eating carbohydrates. Not fat. Not protein. Carbohydrates.

Insulin is the problem. Eating carbohydrates drives up insulin. Cutting way back on carbs lowers your insulin levels, and that is the solution.

02

Carbohydrate primer, and why it’s OK to eat less kale

Most carbohydrates are cheap and tasty, so we eat a lot of them. As munchies, as main meals, as quick pick-me-ups and energy boosts, as food mops for a sloppy plate, as holiday and special-occasion treats. We drink them as sodas, sports drinks, juice, and alcohol.

The worst carbohydrates are the pure sugars and syrups that come in candy and cookies and soda, and the refined carbohydrates (wheat without the bran or germ, for instance) used in white bread and fancy pastries. These simple carbs send your sugar and insulin levels skyrocketing, and they do it right after you have eaten them. If your body was burning fat before you ate them, eating them jacked up your insulin levels and put a halt to the fat

    I liked the ideas in this book. I'm not new to the low-carb thing and know it works for me. It was a great little concise refresher. I liked the ideas presented in the exercise section and plan on incorporating them into my own home workouts.

    On-board with all of the ideas in this book, aside from the author's views on protein and gluconeogenesis

    It is clear this man has little comprehension of actual biochemistry, and many of his conclusions reflect this. People who don't do their research should not pretend to support their positions with science.

    Ugh, hated it. Hated it so much I did not even give it away, I threw it away. Imagine a book that tells you to add 4 tablespoons of butter to your morning coffee to up your fat intake ??

    The whole book can be summed up simply as meat, meat, meat and more meat, an occasional few berries and no other fruit ever, hard kettlebell exercises which are not suitable for those of us well over 50 and with injuries, no moral conscience at all - non stop animal eating and hunting is encouraged.

    An animal lover and foodie lover's worst nightmare.

    Just. don't.
