How is it possible that official dietary guidelines still promote an obsolete low-fat diet, despite the lack of scientific support? Here’s one possible answer.
I sincerely hope that as a country this report will put us on a path towards science-based and effective guidelines that help, not hurt, our overall well-being.
I find my patients get healthier — lose weight and even reverse their diabetes — by doing what the current science says, which is the complete opposite of what the Guidelines tell them. It’s obvious to me, as a practitioner, that these Guidelines do not reflect the best and most current science.
