This made my afternoon! Time Magazine actually has a cover story going after one of the biggest nutrition mistakes of the last 40+ years – saturated fat is bad. Fat is not the enemy. It’s what we replaced saturated fat with — carbs and heavily processed foods – that’s making us fatter and sicker.
Since the government decided to conduct a nationwide experiment on us in the 70s, we’ve packed on the pounds and diabetes went up a whopping 157%. Why? Because they pounded into to us to reach for low-fat, high-carb, “heart-healthy,” crappy processed foods and not real, whole foods like eggs, beef, butter and milk.
Unfortunately, most of the story is behind a pay wall, but be sure to check out the video at the link. It is spot on. More people need to see this.
Also, while this Time Magazine video doesn’t mention Gary Taubes, I hope they do in the article (yes, I have to go to a store to buy a print version…how last century is that?). This was the point of his great book, Why We Get Fat. A lot of nutritionists and weight loss gurus owe this man a big apology!
Help spread the word!
