Did you see the recent article from the New York Times about how the sugar industry paid scientists to downplay the link between sugar and heart disease… and instead shift the blame to fat?
The documents revealing the truth about this coverup, discovered by a researcher at University of San Francisco, showed that decades of food policy and food recommendations have been largely shaped by the sugar industry.
Yes, you read that right.
We have been guided toward a diet that has led to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, weight gain, and more – simply because it benefited the sugar industry.
As it turns out, FAT is an essential ingredient for health and weight loss.
Yet, when we’ve been lied to for so long by our governments, doctors, the food industry, and the media, it’s hard to know who to trust!
Earlier this year, I released my first Fat Summit which dove deep into the war on fat, and cleared up some major confusion around this once-vilified nutrient.
What I’ve realized since then is that this conversation is just beginning.
See you there,
