Evan Allen

Saturated fats used to be as easy to discuss with patients as cigarettes: avoid them! But for the past fifteen years, we’ve been drowned in a sea of misinformation created by the food industry. This deliberate distortion of the truth ignores decades of established research and has led millions of people to embrace a diet high in saturated fat. Many will suffer the consequences: diabetes, dementia, high cholesterol, and heart disease.

As a healthcare provider, it’s difficult to speak confidently with your patients about a healthy diet when both of you can’t see the facts through the haze of fiction.

In Oversaturated, Dr. Evan Allen cuts through the confusion with an up-to-date, thorough review of all the research that makes the case against saturated fat so compelling. You’ll learn customized counseling techniques to help your patients reduce the saturated fat in their diet while maintaining healthy eating patterns. By using lifestyle first, with surgery and medication as last resorts, you can stop bandaging the complications of overconsumption of saturated fat. You can even do something rare: genuinely improve the health of your patients.

Evan Allen

Dr. Evan Allen has been practicing medicine for a quarter century, and in that time, he’s opened two practices in Henderson, Nevada, and received board-certification from the American Board of Obesity Medicine. When Dr. Allen began to pay more attention to nutrition, the health of his patients improved. This discovery sent him on a search for a book like this one–a search that came up empty. With this book, Dr. Allen wants to give healthcare providers what he never had: a guide for talking to their patients about a healthy diet that’s low in saturated fat. Dr. Allen lives in Henderson with his son.
