Why do we get fat? As Americans have gotten heavier over the past century, and disease rates have skyrocketed, there have been many theories- We’re eating too much fat. Too many carbs. An excess of sugar. Is it our lifestyle or our diet that’s to blame?
Or could there be a single common cause that explains the sharp increase in not only obesity, but conditions as disparate as heart disease, cancer, and dementia?

Nature put a “fat switch” in our bodies. Stuck in the “on” position, it’s the hidden source of weight gain, heart disease, and many other common health struggles. But you can turn it off.

Dr. Richard Johnson has been on the cutting edge of this research for more than a decade. His team’s discovery of the fructose-powered survival switch-a metabolic pathway that animals in nature turn on and off as needed, but that our modern diet has permanently fixed in the on position, becoming a fat switch-revolutionized the way we think about why we gain weight.

In
Nature Wants Us to Be Fat
– The Surprising Science Behind Why We Gain Weight and How We Can Prevent-and Reverse-It, he shares the mounting evidence on how this switch is responsible both for excess fat storage and many of the major diseases endemic to the Western world.

Guided by his and others’ ongoing clinical research-plus fascinating observations from nature, evolution, and history-Dr. Johnson takes you along on an eye-opening investigation into-

. What you can do to turn off your fat switch-and what science is working on right now to make doing so easier
. What we have in common with hibernating bears, sperm whales, and the world’s fattest bird-and what makes us different
. How the survival switch works, and which foods other than fructose activate it
. The surprising role dehydration plays in fat accumulation
. Why uric acid may be the key to fructose’s negative health effects
. The direct link between the survival switch and health conditions such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes, gout, kidney disease, liver disease, stroke, cancer, and more
. Early research revealing the connection to addiction, ADHD, and other behavioral disorders

Dr. Johnson not only provides new recommendations for how we can prevent or treat obesity, but also how we can use this information to reduce our risk of developing disease. Nature wants us to be fat, and when we understand why, we gain the tools we need to lose weight and optimize our health.

 

Shipping Policy

Mighty Ape Delivery & Shipping

Standard Delivery Fees

Delivery – From just $4.50 per shipment

Delivery starts out at just $4.50 per shipment. As the size and weight of shipments increase, so does the freight price. To ensure every customer pays a fair price for delivery, an exact shipping price will be displayed to you in the checkout based on the size and weight of the products in your order and your delivery address.

Multiple Shipments

If your order contains a mix of in stock and out of stock products, you will be presented with a choice in the Checkout to have your order sent in multiple shipments (so in stock items ship as soon as they're ready), or all items together in a single shipment (to save money). Using a single shipment will mean in stock items are held back until out of stock items are ready. e.g.

Optional Upgrades

The following delivery options are presented in the Checkout as optional upgrades for your order.

NZ Post Courier / Express Tonight Delivery – $5.60-$19.50 per shipment

If you live in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington or Christchurch and in a qualifying inner-city suburb, Mighty Ape can deliver in-stock products between 6pm – 9pm on the same day your order is dispatched.

Signature Required – $2.50 per shipment

If you don’t want NZ Post Courier to leave your parcel unattended please select the signature required option. This is especially recommended for high-value items. Neither Courier Post nor Mighty Ape are liable for parcels that are stolen, damaged or lost after an item has been delivered.

Rural Delivery – $3.50 per shipment

If you live at a rural address you must select the Rural Delivery option in the Checkout for your item to be delivered. Unfortunately, we must charge this additional fee because rural delivery operators are subcontracted by NZ Post Courier to deliver your parcel from the nearest Post Office. NZ Post Courier on-charge this fee to Mighty Ape.

Saturday Delivery – $4.50 per shipment

If you order an “In Stock at Mighty Ape” item on Friday before the cut off time you will have the option to select Saturday Delivery. Please note Saturday Delivery is not available in all areas.
