371: What The Health & Fat Loss

A few weeks ago, I sent an email to everyone on my free VIP email list with my thoughts on the documentary “What the Health”. Since then, I’ve received hundreds of questions about meat eating, dietary fat, fat loss, low carb diets and everything along that spectrum.

In today’s episode, I’m going to share my thoughts on “What the Health” but also share some deeply data driven opinions of experts, including some of the highlights and considerations from Primal Fat Burner, a new book from Nora Gedgaudas.

I think it’s a huge mistake to try to define ways of eating as “right” or “wrong”. I think we waste a ton of energy & potential labeling vegan, paleo, primal or low carb as “good” and “bad”. Realistically, they can all be done well and they can all be done poorly. They can all be built on high quality foods or low quality foods. They can all be designed to deliver great health or to create disease.

It comes down to quality, individuality and hormonal implications. That’s what we’re talking about in today’s episode.

    Elizabeth, I have an advanced science degree as you do and have been interested in nutrition my whole life. I too have read almost every hot new weight loss book on the market over the years. I just want to chime in and corroborate what you said on this episode. The easiest thing anyone can do to get healthier is make a small change that is an improvement for them and keep doing that along the way in their journey.There are diet books and plans for sale that cover a wide spectrum of theories on weight loss. Some say low fat is the way to go; others say low carb, etc., etc. They are geared toward quick results that spark water cooler conversations to promote book sales. What most of them have in common is a failure to deliver lasting results. Do what is an improvement for you and for your health, and don’t worry about what anyone else is doing. It’s your journey!
