Ian Lane became deeply interested in nutrition science and human performance, in 2006, after falling ill and gaining, and then subsequently losing, 100 pounds of fat. He has since spent the last decade pouring over the peer-reviewed scientific literature on human fat loss. This book is a compendium of that research, translated into everyday language that anyone can understand and apply. The ideas shared in these pages are precisely those he used to burn off his own excess weight, after recuperating from his illness. Ian lives and works in Los Angeles, California, and is just beginning to embark on his journey into the world of modern medicine.
