More and more medical experts are saying that eating saturated fat is not the main cause of weight increase, Diabetes, and heat diseases. This is based on the scientific research that stressed out he perks of consuming high-fat diets, like the Ketogenic Diet and Atkins Diet.
The true and main cause of obesity, high cholesterol, and cardiovascular diseases, so as Diabetes is the consumption of foods that are rich in sugar. This statement is also affirmed by well-acclaimed investigative writer, Nina Teicholz, the author of high-fat diet advocate, The Big Fat Surprise.
Based on her answer during an interview with an obesity expert, specifically Dr. Frank Lipman, who is the author of the book Revive, fat in general, and specifically saturated fat have become the points of ridicule, since people believe that it causes Obesity, heart Problems, and Cancer. This belief had been engraved to the minds of people and soon became the national dogma.
Ms. Nina pointed out that saturated fat is not that bad for the human body, and this has been justified by rigorous clinical tests. The tests showed that the low-carb, high-fat diet can truly fight obesity, heart related conditions, and Diabetes.
Demonization of Fat for 40 years was in Accordance to an Inaccurate Science…
Ms. Nina Teicholz made her conclusions after 9 years of investigating. According to Ms. Teicholz, the longstanding belief whereby the saturated fat is not healthy, came from an inaccurate scientific research, to be specific, from the study that Ancel Keys, a vegetarian scientist, conducted which is referred to as the Seven Countries Study.
In the year 1958, Ancel Keys said that high-fat diets can trigger cardiovascular conditions. He came up with this after concluding that the countries with most cases of heart diseases eat a lot of fatty foods. However, later analysis unveiled that Ancel Keys just cherry-picked the details that he shared with the public, not considering the countries where high-fat diet is rampant, yet there were no or less cases of heart conditions. He also did not include those low-fat diet countries, but have high rates of heart diseases.
Ms. Teicholz said that she was really surprised with what she found out. She was so astonished that there were atrocious inaccuracies in the world of science, and many of which serve as the bases of national nutrition policy. Despite of these inaccuracies, people are soon to be enlightened since there are more and more scientific and medical experts who deflect the low-fat diet creed which was built-up by Conventional Wisdom.
Several advocates of low-carb, high-fat diet, many are medical experts, underscore the perks that such dietary plans can give to health.
