which Mazzetti operates with cocreator Mike
Tornabene, the book offers a lovingly satirical
guide to gym-bro culture. Topics include how
to defeat your gym nemesis and why you should
never trust Crossfitters.
Step by Step
For those already dreading the annual resolution
bonanza—gym every day, fewer carbs, no sugar,
etc.—a more forgiving approach to getting
healthy may appeal.
One Part Plant by Jessica Murnane (Harper
Wave, Feb. 2017), for example, guides readers
toward what she’s found to be a healthier lifestyle
with a program that requires making only one
of the day’s meals plant based. The book draws
on Murnane’s experience of changing her diet
when she became ill with endometriosis.
Julie Will, editorial director at Harper
Wave, says that the book, which includes a
foreword from Lena Dunham (a fellow endo-
metriosis sufferer whom Murnane has
advised), “takes you by the hand and eases
you into it—just a few more vegetables in your diet.
It’s not a radical overhaul. It’s really approachable.”
Will also edited Serena Wolf’s recently published
The Dude Diet, which offers healthier versions of
“man food” staples, divided into categories such as
game-day eats and take-out favorites. Of more
approachable guides to eating healthier, Will says,
“I think the diet pendulum has swung really far one
way. For a while people were really into counting
calories and restrictive diets. Now it’s swinging
back more toward the center” with an emphasis on
things like whole foods and mindful eating.
Another recent shift: for many, fat is no longer
necessarily the enemy. The Eat Fat, Get Thin
Cookbook by Mark Hyman (Little, Brown, Jan.
2017) is a companion to 2016’s Eat Fat, Get Thin,
which has sold 128,000 print copies, according to
BookScan. The book’s more than 175 recipes incor-
porate sources of so-called good fat, including nuts,
avocado, and coconut oil.
Nourishing Fats (Grand Central, Jan. 2017) by
Sally Fallon Morrell explores the health benefits of
animal fat and offers tips on how to incorporate
