Free Updates Now Available for “Get Your Fats Straight”

by Sarah Healthy LivingComments: 24

Get Your Fats StraightA little over 3 months ago, I released my very first eBook Get Your Fats Straight. My primary goal for writing this book was to keep the critical discussion about fats very, very simple.

Unlike most of the books on fats out there today, Get Your Fats Straight can be easily understood with no Chemistry degree required – which fats to eat and why and which fats to avoid and why — along with how to incorporate the good ones cost effectively and practically into your family’s diet (simple recipes I use in my own home included).

As I mentioned in a brief video I filmed about the book last month, one of the reasons I chose to release Get Your Fats Straight on Amazon Kindle rather than a one time PDF download or a traditional paper book was so that folks who purchased the book could easily get any updates and new research I added in the future for free and at their own convenience.

Well here we are just a few months down the road and I wanted to let you all know that I have recently uploaded a new version of Get Your Fats Straight to Amazon Kindle.  As promised, those of you who already own the book get all the updates free of charge!

There are numerous updates scattered throughout the book, but the three biggies include the following:

  1. Identifying the original source of the research that cracked the code regarding the mysterious X-Factor of which Dr. Weston Price frequently and reverently wrote in his nutrition classic Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.
  2. Clarifying the huge difference in fatty acid profile between tallow from grass-fed cows and tallow from primarily grain-fed cows.  Not all tallow is created equal!
  3. Important updates on Vitamin D requirements – especially during sunny season.

Want to download the updates for free?  Here’s all you need to do if you’ve already purchased Get Your Fats Straight:

  2. Select [Contact Us]
  3. Choose email, chat or phone
  4. Request update for GET YOUR FATS STRAIGHT by Sarah Pope (B00BR3SKME)
  5. Amazon customer service will take it from there!

    Hi Sarah,

    I am reading your book and I have a few questions about the chapter on if you don’t have a gallbladder. I have a gall bladder but I do have a 1.5 cm gallstone which acts somewhat like I have no gall bladder as the stone take sup much of the gall bladder’s storage space, though not all. My question is this, If coconut oil and plan oil are medium and short chain fatty acids and do not need bile do they provide any or enough cholesterol for the liver to make bile.
    My second question: I am only able to digest coconut oil plan oil, liver and fish eggs, and sea food. If I eat the recommended amount of liver and fish eggs and these other things should that allow my gall bladder sufficient stimulus to squeeze and thus keep the bile moving and would that be enough to supply the liver with cholesterol to keep making bile?
    Thank you I am really learning a lot from your book and have implemented most of what I can with my stone just now. I aim to be rid of the stone so I can eat more good fats and according to Dr. Cowan’s (WAPF’s ask the doctor) advice if I eat slowly the good fats a little eat day gradually eating more as my body adjusts then the stone will dissolve away. It will he said because the body will see it is getting what it needs in regards to cholesterol and thus just dissolve the stone. Have you heard of this before? Can you vouch for this? I am fighting to keep my gallbladder and to get to eating healthy fats once again. I approached the NT diet 7 years ago after growing up on a SAD low fat but aiming at what was known to be healthy. My mother was a farm girl so had some common sense but she bought the low fat mantra hook line a sinker. So 7 years ago I began cooking from the NT cookbook and eating more good fats etc but four years later I all of a sudden it seemed could not eat chicken or chicken stock and then I found the gall stone. I thought at first it was the NT diet and all that fat but I have since learned the gall stone was more likely already there before I tried to begin the NT diet. Now to recover the lost years.

    Thanks again :)

    Hi Sarah

    After checking and re-confirming with Becka of VGN the ebook is incomplete. I would appreciate if you could email the complete PDF updated version plus the cover as a whole instead of just only the cover.

    Your book no doubt is a good one but under “Olive oil” you did not mention how to test whether EVOO is real or with added filler. Appreciate your expertise comments.

      Who is Becka of VGN? Is she new – I’ve never heard of her or had any interaction or discussion with her. How would she know – she didn’t write the book. I emailed VGN the PDF of the book myself and it was 100% complete. A partial version of my book does not even exist.

      Only the cover was missing. I will gladly email you the cover. Best, Sarah

    Hi Sarah

    VGN has responded and has washed their hands. I would say your ebbok is not 100% complete – missing front cover and the additional 50 pages.

    Ebook bundles are sold as in the week they go out. If the book gets revised after the week of the bundle, it is something outside the bundle.

      Hi Patricia .. the book is 100% complete as sold in the bundle. I have checked this myself. Kindle has a different manner of numbering the pages than is done in a PDF download. This is where the confusion is occurring. If you would like a front cover, I can email it to you if you like.

    Hi Sarah

    Further to my comments on Jun 30, as a gesture of goodwill and your loyal and faithfully members who have been following your site so closely, Those of us who bought your book throught VGN would you be so kind to let us download the updated version since it is a PDF file.

      You would have to contact VGN about this as they are handling customer service for the bundle as they coordinated sales for the bundle (they bundled all the books together and handled the download function so it was automated and not a manual process). Similarly, I am not handling the updates via Amazon .. Amazon customer service is as the sales were through them.

    I purchased the book in the VGN Spring bundle as well. So you are saying because we bought the book while it was on sale that we are not receiving the updates? And were there 50 pages of updates just added? Or we didn’t get the full book to begin with?

    This is very disappointing. I just read through several marketing e-mails sent by VGN and you, and it was never explained that we were purchasing partial books or wouldn’t be entitled to any future updates.

      The full and 100% complete book was provided in the Spring Bundle. VGN controlled the distribution of that bundle. I don’t even know who bought it. Only Amazon is offering the updates for free as this is part of their customer service.

    Hi Sarah, I purchased the package from Health Summit(?) with your book included. (I think it was called Health Summit) and it does not show up in my kindle purchases. Can I still up date my version? I think it is in my computer files some where.
    Thanks, Janet

    So the book that we purchased through the spring bundle is not a full book?
    I was under the impression that all those books we purchased were just that – full books.
    A little disappointing – especially to find out only some people can get access to the updates.

    I purchased the OraWellness package through the link on your website. I think that it mentioned I would get a copy of your book when it came out? Am I remembering this correctly?

      Krissy, You are remembering correctly. I also purchased the OraWellness Package and
      was disappointed when Sarah’s Book wasn’t part of the Package as stated.

        Hi Krissy and Chuck … A separate PDF of Get Your Fats Straight was emailed to those who sent me their receipt for purchasing the Orawellness Summit (it was not offered to everyone who bought the summit .. only my blog readers). If you email me your confirmation receipt from Orawellness, I will email you a PDF of the updated book :) Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I have Kindle on my PC, not a device – and purchased the book alone, not in the bundle. I clicked on Contact us, then selected my device, Susan’s Kindle PC, #2 – Other Kindle Question, #3 – Provide Feedback, then sent an email with the info to request update. We’ll see if that works.

      Had an email from Amazon this AM with instructions on updating my book content, it made me nervous to delete the original book I had downloaded, but, when I did, the new one appeared.

    How do you borrow the book on Amazon? As far as I can see we have to receive an email from someone with a link to borrow a book.

    You have to enter at least three levels of details about your support issue. I chose some that were close but not quite right. Hopefully this works.

    Hi Sarah

    Me too I bought your book. Unfortunately it cannot be updated cos’ your book does not have a cover and it has 72 pages instead of 125 – that means we are missing a lot of your book contents. Would appreciate if you could assist.

    Sarah – flaxseeds is not so healthy as it seems. I was advised by a health expert to take them to replace fish oil for vegetarians. Having goiter – to take or not??

    Thanks for keeping your info current! I purchased your book from the spring e-books offer from VGN. I don’t have a kindle, how can I get these updates? :-)

      Unfortunately, if you bought the book through the spring eBook bundle, the updates are not available as that was a one time PDF download offer.

      The updates are provided free of charge via Amazon Kindle purchases only.
