The Nutrition Myth Buster

“Beauty and health come in ALL shapes and sizes. Just be the best version of yourself you can be every day.”

~ Dr. Jonny Bowden

Dr. Jonny Bowden:  BUSTING nutritional dogma, one myth at a time.

The best-selling author of 16 books on health, including “The Great Cholesterol Myth” and the highly anticipated “Smart Fat,” Dr. Jonny Bowden has been redeeming the reputation of fat for over two decades—and arguing that the dietary recommendations we have been slavishly following have gotten us fat, sick, tired and depressed.  Are you ready for a change?

“My goal in life is to let everyone know that where you are RIGHT NOW is a great starting place, believe it or not. It may be shocking to you, but health, beauty and sexiness come in all sizes. And you do NOT have to wait to live your best life until you hit some elusive goal somewhere down the road. Forget the idea of having what you want so you can do want you want and then be who you want to be. Flip the script and just start BEING who you want to be right now. Because when embrace who we want to be, our better life is literally at our fingertips.”

-Dr. Jonny Bowden

The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth
“I reference this beautifully written and illustrated review of the best cures on the planet so often that it lives on my desk rather than a bookshelf.”

Mehmet C. Oz, M.D.

Coauthor of the New York Times bestseller You: The Owner’s Manual

The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth
“In The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth, you’ll find literally hundreds of proven, natural solutions—many of which I use in my own practice. This book is a must-have reference for anyone interested in discovering the natural options that really work.”

Al Sears, M.D.

author of The Doctor’s Heart Cure

The Great Cholesterol Myth
“Anyone skeptical of the notion that there is more to heart disease than ‘cut your fat, take a statin drug’ would be well served by reading this book.”

William Davis, M.D.

best-selling author of Wheat Belly

The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth
“The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth is simply delightful! The information is accurate; the presentation is a visual feast. All in all, reading this book is a very satisfying experience.”

Christiane Northrup, M.D.

author of Women’s Wisdom and Mother-Daughter Wisdom

The Great Cholesterol Myth
“The Great Cholesterol Myth finally sheds light on the true story, why millions are being harmed by statin drugs and how to really prevent heart disease. Everyone with heart disease, on a statin, or with a family history of heart disease must read this book. And if your doctor recommends a statin, read this book first!”

Mark Hyman, M.D.

best-selling author of The Blood Sugar Solution

The Great Cholesterol Myth
“Be ready to be surprised, entertained, and to become healthy.”

Larry McCleary, M.D.

best-selling author of Feed Your Brain, Lose Your Belly

The Great Cholesterol Myth
“The book you’re holding is dangerous, and may even upset you. That’s because everything you know about cholesterol is probably wrong. Doctors Jonny Bowden and Stephen Sinatra provide both the science to vindicate this unfairly demonized molecule and a plan of action so you can attain optimal health.”

JJ Virgin

NY Times best-selling author of The Virgin Diet and The Sugar Impact Diet

The Great Cholesterol Myth
“Jonny Bowden and Stephen Sinatra set the record straight on decades of bad science [and] put forth a far better solution about the true culprits that rob you of longevity: processed carbohydrates, insufficient vegetables, excess omega 6, too many trans fats. Masterly, readable, and life-altering.”

Sara Gottfried, M.D.

best-selling author of The Hormone Cure

The Most Effective Ways To Live Longer
“…smart, well researched, brilliantly written advice on how to get and stay healthy. If you want to live a long healthy life, or just feel better for today, this book is for you.”

Daniel G. Amen, M.D.
