We’re All Guinea Pigs in a Failed Decades-Long Diet Experiment



"The change in dietary advice to promote low-fat foods is perhaps the biggest mistake in modern medical history."


https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/3bkaan/were-all-guinea-pigs-in-a-failed-decades-long-diet-experiment


What exactly are “healthy” foods? When you go to the grocery store, what are you looking for on the nutrition label? Are you pulled in by any particular marketing phrases displayed on the packaging?


Starting in the 1980’s nutritional guidelines were published cautioning against consuming fat, saturated fat and cholesterol. These recommendations resulted in the adaptation of a low fat, high carb diet endorsed by some health organizations and medical professionals and supported by the food industry’s creation of “low fat” “healthy” processed, packaged foods.

Vice News takes a deeper look into where this advice originated, why is was promoted and the resulting societal response. What we’ve been led to believe, may not be scientifically supported.


Eat whole foods. “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar."


Eat them at the right time, in the right proportions and combinations to reduce your body’s inflammation and improve gut health.


If you’re looking for guidance and want to learn more facts rather than gimmicks, schedule a nutrition consultation with our Zone-Certified Nutrition Coach, Nickie.
