managing an LCHF lifestyle in Israel
Nina Teicholz, writing restaurant reviews, didn’t really think much about it until she was asked to write an article about Trans fats. She started to research the subject and the more she dug the more she realized that there was something “fishy” about the whole ‘saturated-fats-are-dangerous-for-us’ guidelines that has been in charge since the 1980s.
Being a professional journalist she dug even deeper: read research papers, attended conferences, interviewed scientists and others, and carefully added piece to piece to get the full picture. It took some 10 years but now we all can read the results in her book “The Big Fat Surprise”. And a surprise it is to most of us. Even I, who thought I knew most of the history about the vilification of saturated fats, was greatly surprised to read about olive oil and the Mediterranean diet. (I’ll write more about that in a separate post.)
A must read for anyone who wants to know the stories, the history, the politics, the evidence about fats, and learn “why butter, meat, and cheese belong in a healthy diet”!
