Show 1030: Dr. Mark Hyman on How to Eat Fat & Get ThinAvailability: In Stock
Learn why it is time to turn the food pyramid on its head and eat fat instead of sugar to keep weight under control.
For decades, we’ve been told that we need to avoid fat if we want to lose weight. So Americans turned to highly-processed low-fat foods that are full of sugar. Is it a coincidence that we are fatter than before? More than two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese.
Reversing the Old Diet Advice:
Dr. Mark Hyman explains what went wrong and why we need to eat fat–not sugar–if we want to get thin. According to Dr. Hyman, we’d be better off treating sugar (especially sugar mixed with fat) as if it were a recreational drug like alcohol, to be enjoyed very sparingly.
Why Good Fat Matters:
Find out why many nutrition experts are reversing their position on fat, and why the quality of the fat we eat is so important. How can you follow the recommended diet on a budget? And does it really make a difference in just three weeks? Dr. Hyman addresses these questions during the interview.
