The Fallacy of the Calorie: Myths, Misdirections and Machinations of the Modern Western Diet  
Mar. 22, 2014
Author:  Dr. Michael S. Fenster
Category:  Non-fiction: Health
Description:  Quite simply, our diet is killing us. The modern Western diet is also known as the standard American diet or merely—and appropriately—the SAD. It is an energy dense, nutritionally poor wasteland that makes the ninth circle of Dante's culinary Inferno seem like a weekend at Club Med. Its legacy is the diseases of modern civilization. Today, I am pleased to offer you the opportunity to consider the attached proposal for The Fallacy of the Calorie: Myths, Misdirections and Machinations of the Modern Western Diet, penned by practicing Interventional Cardiologist and Professional Chef Michael S. Fenster, more affectionately known as Doctor Mike.

With the discussion of guiding principles and specific steps this book outlines a thirty day program to restore our inner harmony. It is not calorie counting, salvation through deprivation, magic pills, meals in a box, or other gimmicks and tired mantras. It is about understanding how what we eat really becomes who we are. It is about preparing and consuming quality foods that emotionally satisfy through delicious taste and texture. It is about achieving in our food what we strive to achieve in life; balance, joy, health and wellness.

The Fallacy of the Calorie: Myths, Misdirections and Machinations of the Modern Western Diet is a fascinating journey of self-discovery. It is a very important story; for it is the story of all of us. It is a cautionary tale that affects the health and well-being of every individual in the modern industrial world. It is, until now, a story that has not been told. The top Science news story of 2013 was the topic of this very book—our gut micro biome. Dr. Fenster strongly believes it is revolutionary in the synthesis of data, documentation and approach. Although people have suggested some of these things before; it has never been done in a comprehensive format. A preliminary search on Amazon indicates there are no books that cover this topic. The Fallacy of the Calorie documents incredibly well-researched and sorrow hypothesis that is based on scientific fact and not nutritional alchemy. Unlike these many fad diet books, The Fallacy of the Calorie is a solid program based in cutting edge scientific fact that will weather and indeed welcomes any serious inquiry.
