Jump to recipe

This Spiced Sweet Potato Quick Bread is one of many delicious recipes from the Eat Fat Get Thin Cookbook by my previous boss, Dr. Mark Hyman. Not all breads are created equal–this sweet potato bread defies all bread norms by incorporating only clean ingredients and a perfect balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. This grain-free recipe calls for only 1/2 cup of coconut flour as the only flour alternative. The rest of the bulk comes from the sweet potatoes, leading to a smooth mouthfeel and super moist loaf of bread.

Healthy Fats Do Not Make you Fat

As the title of Dr. Hyman’s newest book explains, healthy fats do not make you fat. We’ve gotten it wrong for decades but Dr. Hyman is setting the record straight. He explains that low-fat, high carb diets lead to increased hunger levels and insulin secretion, resulting in excess abdominal fat. Incorporating healthy fats helps decrease spikes in blood sugar levels, increase levels of satiety, and fuel your brain.

This is also why low calorie diets don’t work long-term, because they cause constant blood sugar fluctuations and don’t provide the same satisfying effect as fats. Low calorie diets are typically higher in carbohydrates because carbs contain only 4 calories per gram, compared to fats that provide 9 calories per gram. Although they have more calories per gram, fats can help decrease overall caloric intake by making you feel full and satisfied. Think of it as an upfront investment in decreased cravings, enhanced satisfaction and increased willpower!
