The Big Fat Surprise

Autor Nina Teicholz
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 2 iul 2015
A groundbreaking study that reveals how decades of misleading science and policy unjustly demonized the high-fat diet, which might actually be our healthiest option. For the past 60 years we have been told that a low-fat diet can protect against obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Yet despite many of us taking this advice in the developed West, we are now in the midst of an obesity epidemic that is breeding serious health problems. Recent more rigorous scientific work has overturned some of the shoddier theories of earlier decades to demonstrate conclusively that we have been needlessly avoiding red meat, cheese, whole milk, and eggs for decades, and that we can now, guilt-free, welcome these delicious foods back into our lives.

Descriere

For the past 60 years we have been told that a low-fat diet can protect against obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

Recenzii

"Nina Teicholz reveals the disturbing underpinnings of the profoundly misguided dietary recommendations that have permeated modern society, culminating in our overall health decline. But "The Big Fat Surprise" is refreshingly empowering. This wonderfully researched text provides the reader with total validation for welcoming healthful fats back to the table, paving the way for weight loss, health and longevity."--David Perlmutter, MD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs
"A page-turner story of science gone wrong: what Gary Taubes did in "Good Calories, Bad Calories" for debunking the connection between fat consumption and obesity, Nina Teicholz now does in "Big Fat Surprise" for the purported connection between fat and heart disease. Misstep by misstep, blunder by blunder, Ms. Teicholz recounts the statistical cherry-picking, political finagling, and pseudoscientific bullying that brought us to yet another of the biggest mistakes in health and nutrition, the low-fat and low-saturated fat myth for heart health."--William Davis, MD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight and Find Your Path Bac
"At last the whole truth about the luscious foods our bodies really need!"--Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestseller Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
"This meticulously researched book thoroughly dismantles the current dietary dogma that fat--particularly saturated fat--is bad for us. Teicholz brings to life the key personalities in the field and uncovers how nutritional science has gotten it so wrong. There aren't enough superlatives to describe this journalistic tour de force. I read it twice: once for the information and again just for the writing."--Michael R. Eades, M.D., author of the New York Times bestseller Protein Power
""The Big Fat Surprise" delivers on its title, exposing the shocking news that much of what "everybody knows" about a healthy diet is in fact all wrong. This book documents how misunderstanding, misconduct and bad science caused generations to be misled about nutrition. Anyone interested in either food or health will want to read to this book."--Nathan Myhrvold, author of Modernist Cuisine
"Thisis the most provocative and assumption-shredding food book I've read inyears.... All in all, a must read."--Tom Phillpot "Mother Jones "
"It's so important for everyone to read this book."--Alice Waters
"Teicholz may be the Rachel Carson of the nutrition movement..."--Leah Binder "Forbes "
