“The Low-Fat Diet Has Been One of the Biggest Disasters in Modern Medicine”

Do you want to eat better and lose weight in 2016? Here’s a new article with great quotes by smart doctors. like Dr. Aseem Malhotra:

The low-fat diet has been one of the biggest disasters in modern medicine, and in my view has fuelled the obesity epidemic. It’s time we stopped counting calories and ate real food.

One person who certainly agrees is the obesity researcher and practicing physician Dr. David Ludwig, author of the soon-to-be-published book Always Hungry. He says that…

…low-fat diets popularised since the 1970s had ‘not only fuelled the obesity epidemic but also contributed to cardiovascular disease’.

The theory that high-calorie fat should be eliminated because all calories were created equal was ‘profoundly misguided’, he said, adding: ‘With low-fat diets, you are destined to fail.’

Here’s the full article:

DailyMail: Hurrah! It’s the steak and chocolate diet – which is easier to keep to because it has enough fat

Ignore the silly chocolate-eating pictures. Obviously eating tons of chocolate is not the way to lose weight. There’s always some sugar in chocolate. But small amounts of dark chocolate (70%+) is a smart choice for an occasional indulgence.

    I love how the Daily Mail jump on any bandwagon with those crazy headlines. They will change the headline tomorrow if there is even the mere suggestion that fat may be bad again "you can eat tonnes of potatoes without getting fat!" It is good to see the message spreading though

    Low-Fat Diet is still a considered a very effective intervention when LowCarbing for more than a decade has failed to fix insulin resistance and obesity. Just ask Jimmy Moore planning on eating no fat at all most days 2016...

    You can't just live on protein. You need either fat or carbs as your main source of energy.

    Generally there's sugar in chocolate, but not always. There are many wonderful 100% bars out there, if you develop a taste for them.

    Hi, I believe - A person can eat whatever they like -- Just eat it in moderation. Obviously if something gives you upset stomach etc. avoid it. Have the odd junk food treat, but keep it as a treat. And use smaller plates at meal times.

    Yes, you are right, Susan. Everything in moderation is a good idea. Cigarettes? No problem...just have a couple a day (don't be stupid and smoke the whole pack). Cocaine? Nice indulgence for that once in a while treat. Not wearing your seat belts when driving?...don't make it a habit, but if you do it once in a while, don't worry, it won't be a problem.
