the big fat surprise

I can’t believe we’re still being taught that polyunsaturated fats, artificially made from seed oils and intrinsically high in omega-6, are better than saturated fats, naturally occurring in meat, fish, nuts etc and beneficially high in omega-3 (assuming the animals are not grain-fed).

The book, The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz, debunks this myth that has been perpetuated for the last generation.

It helpfully analyses the scientific evidence accumulated over the past decade, encouraging the reader to make their own conclusions.

I already knew a lot about this subject but this book cemented my understanding on it.

Ironically, if you want to lose body fat, you need to eat more fat, and replace processed carbohydrates in the process.

But not just any kind of fat. You need to make sure they’re the right ones.

Still don’t believe me? Fair enough.

Then read this book and then tell me what you think. It’s a real eye-opener.
