presented by Mark Hyman, MD
Since the 1970’s dietary fat has been public enemy number one. We have been exhorted to eat less fat and cholesterol to reduce weight and heart disease. In 2015 the US Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee recommended removing dietary restrictions on fat and cholesterol from our dietary guidelines. Yet controversy still abounds regarding dietary fat and weight loss, and the risks and benefits of saturated fats and omega 6 oils. In this recorded presentation, Dr. Hyman reviews the state of the science of fat, weight loss (more fat equals more weight loss), and heart disease (more fat equals less heart disease), challenging traditional assumptions about fat, heart disease, metabolism, and the calorie theory of weight loss.
