In more than 100 short, compelling directives, Eat Bacon, Don't Jog shows why we should drop the carbs, embrace fat, and hang up our running shoes, with the latest science to back up its claims. Diet and Exercise make up the bulk of the book, with food addressed in essays such as "Carbohydrate Primer" - and why it's okay to eat less kale - and "You'll Eat Less Often If You Eat More Fat." The exercise chapters begin with "Don't Jog" (it just makes you hungry and trains muscle to tolerate more jogging while raising stressors like cortisol) and lead to a series of interval-training exercises and a suite of kettlebell lifts that greatly enhance strength and endurance. The balance of the book explains the science of nutrition and includes more than a dozen simple and delicious carb-free recipes.
