Is the Mediterranean diet healthy or just hyped?
Best-selling author Nina Teicholz has spent a lot of time researching the subject, and last year I sat down to talk to her. This interview has only been available on our member site but now everyone can watch it above.

7:24 Olive oil has never been shown to be heart protective
Some people don’t want Teicholz to be heard – she just got disinvited from a nutrition panel. Probably because the other participants did not want to debate what we actually know about nutrition and what is just dogma. Another reason to listen to Teicholz.
We need new ideas, because after 30 years of the obesity and diabetes epidemics getting worse every year one thing is absolutely clear: what we’re doing is not working.
