You know what they say, the 11th time is the charm.
My latest book , The Essential Diet For Fatty Liver Disease, happens to be my 11th and may just be my best and most impactful publication to date – and I say that with all due respect to the other ten.
The culmination of my professional experience and the amount of research and knowledge translation that went into this latest project means I can’t help but feel extra excited for the promotional period ahead.
If you or someone you care about is living with fatty liver disease, this is the book you need.
The sheer amount of interest I received for the limited number of advanced review copies I had been allotted to provide my colleagues reinforced what I already suspected about this subject matter – there is a significant clamouring for more and better information on the role nutrition plays in liver health.
Suffice to say that my book delivers on that desire to the utmost degree, leaning heavily into recently published research I can assure you that the amount of learning potential found within these pages is MASSIVE.
And the timing could not be better.
Liver disease is on the rise in Canada with 1 in 4 people affected and the demographic ranging from children to older adults.
NAFLD, or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, is the most common liver ailment and, as the name suggests, is characterized by surpassing a threshold of fat accumulation on the liver that is not caused by excessive alcohol consumption.
This fat accumulation may be innocuous in small amounts but if it continues to expand there is a great potential for damage to the liver via inflammation and scarring which, in about 20% of cases, can lead to a more severe condition known as NASH (Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis).
The goal for those following an NAFLD diagnosis is to do what they can from the diet, lifestyle and supplemental perspective is prevent that from happening.
That’s exactly where the Essential Diet For Fatty Liver, my latest book, comes to play.
Here’s What You Can Expect From The Book:
Part I – A Thorough Review Of The Available Science: I scoured the scientific literature for the latest and greatest research exploring the interaction between specific foods, nutrients and fatty liver disease. All recommendations made within are evidence-based to the core and include an exploration of the world of supplements as well.
Part II – Delicious, Practical Recipes That Bring Science To Life: Knowledge is most useful when applied in the kitchen, and that’s exactly where the second part of the book comes in to play – an extensive and diverse recipe list which utilizes the science from part I to help you create a positive and impactful culinary experience.
Here’s What You Can Expect Over The Next 4 Weeks:
My latest book, which can be pre-ordered via the image at the end of today’s press release, will officially ship four weeks from today on Tuesday May 24th.
In the period of time leading up to my book’s release I will be regularly sharing content related to liver health and other relevant topics as well as sharing a sneak peek at some of the book’s recipes.
While all of the best information and latest science is reserved for those purchase the book, there will be plenty of learning to be had along the way during the next several weeks, so I hope you join me for the ride.
Any topic related to NAFLD that I did not have the chance (or the word count!) to flesh out fully in the book, you can be sure I’ll be doing so on the blog – so stay tuned.
