Time Magazine Says Scientists Were Wrong About Fat

I'm really enjoying this issue of Time Magazine.

I’m really enjoying this issue of Time Magazine.

Bryan Walsh’s recent cover story in Time Magazine exposes the conspiracy to slander FAT in the last four decades of nutritional science.

In 1980, the year I was born (thought you might want to know that), the USDA published dietary guidelines that warned Americans to stay away from fats and cholesterol in order to reduce the risk of heart disease.

They advised Americans to cut back on meat consumption, stop drinking whole milk, and replace our traditional eggs and bacon with “healthy” grain-based cereals and low-fat milk.

Cholesterol was blamed for heart disease and foods high in fat were put on the hit list. Notice this Time Magazine cover from 1984.

But not everyone was convinced. Philip Handler is quoted as being skeptical about these guidelines from the very beginning calling it “a vast nutritional experiment”.

Well, this experiment has gone very badly.

According to Walsh the prevalace of Type 2 diabetes increased 166% from 1980 to 2012. More than a third of Americans are obese which makes us one of the fattest countries in the world (which country is fatter?).

And what’s ironic is that conventional wisdom told us that cutting fats out of our diet would help us lose weight. Cut fat to lose fat, they thought. Continue Reading →

These protein crepes are delicious at breakfast or any meal (especially topped with strawberries and fat adapted whipped cream) . . .

And once you teach your body to live without added sugar, these crepes make an excellent treat for dessert.
