What the Fat!?

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:26 pm on 24 January 2017
Fat’s in, sugar’s out! The low carb, healthy fat lifestyle is a revolution turning the food pyramid on its head.

Ditch the sugar and welcome the fat!

That's the new message out from public health academic, Professor Grant Schofield.

He is at the forefront of challenging the widespread fat phobia that he says, has pushed us to eat a diet full of processed, carb-laden food. And he says a healthy fat lifestyle is a revolution that could turn the food pyramid on its head. It's all in the new book What the Fat? Fat's in, Sugar's Out.
