Dish up the red meat, eggs, and whole milk! In this well-researched and captivating narrative, veteran food writer Nina Teicholz proves how everything we've been told about fat is wrong. For decades, Americans have cut back on red meat and dairy products full of "bad" saturated fats. We obediently complied with nutritional guidelines to eat "heart healthy" fats found in olive oil, fish, and nuts, and followed a Mediterranean diet heavy on fruits, vegetables, and grains. Yet the nation's health has declined. What is going on?

A thorough assessment of the evidence that has shaped our dietary advice over the last century.

You cannot miss out on this read if you want to avoid chronic diseases, reverse diabetes and metabolic disorder/heart disease.

Hear the evidence yourself and STOP FEARING SATURATED FAT.

I see the results of the standard North American diet in my treatment chair everyday. I practice Podiatry. Current guidelines are not improving outcomes. People are getting sicker. It is time for us to go back to our (now) science based traditional foods and get away from modern dogma based seed oils and carbohydrates.
