I almost fell out of my chair when I watched these videos. Dr. Oz actually did a segment on why saturated fat isn’t bad. This is years after telling his audience that saturated fat causes heart attacks. The videos feature an interview with Dr. Peter Attia, president and co-founder of the Nutrition Science Initiative. In the video they show why sugars and refined carbs are the main source of obesity and heart disease.

Dr. Oz, Part 2
Good for Dr. Oz to admit he was wrong and doing a segment on why saturated fat is good for you. Now I certainly don’t expect everyone to start eating more saturated fat and fewer refined carbs tomorrow. I am optimistic that cracks are forming in the nutrition dogma of the last 50 years. Let’s hope that dogma crumbles soon.
By the way, Dr. Attia co-founded NSI with Gary Taubes, author of Why We Get Fat, a book you must read to understand how your body processes food. That’s the book that completely changed they way I eat.
