Summary ì The Big Fat Surprise Why Butter Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet 109 In The Big Fat Surprise investigative journalist Nina Teicholz reveals the unthinkable that everything we thought we knew about dietary fat is wrong She documents how the low fat nutrition advice of the past sixty years has amounted to a vast uncontrolled experiment on the entire population with disastrous conseuences for our healthFor decades we have been told that the best possible diet involves cutting back on fat especially saturated fat and that if we are not getting healthier or thinner it must be because we are not trying hard enough But what if the low fat diet is itself the problem What if th. Original review on June 2014 after the first read For two years now I have been in the camp of Ornish and Essylstne on nearly zero fat vegan diet I had been diligent and scrupulous in my diet and exercise toeing the line from my previous education in biostatistics also inspired by vegan converts such as Bill Clinton My overall health has improved significantly but the reasons may not be what I thought Suffice to say that I have come to this book with a critical mind to examine the statistical evidences of how we are taught that fat is bad for CHD and health in general Fortunately I have read several books previously to prepare me in basic human metabolic process how insulin works ghrelin leptin lipolysis lipogenesis diabetes type I and II metabolic syndrome inflammation gluten and gliadin metabolic pathways of glucose and fructose visceral adiposity as well as ketogenic diet treatment for epilepsy etc Without such preparation I may have unduly ignored this book just as I had toward Gary Taubes book merely a few months ago One of the basic tenet of scientific discovery is to formulate hypothesis gathering and analyzing evidences then confirm or refute the said hypothesis It was supposed to be an engaged but disinterested process to discover what can not be accounted as random chance That was how I was taught in my graduate studies in statistics and biostatistics particularly in the HSPH How much I did not appreciate is that scientists medical researchers epidemiologists and doctors are human who are motivated and shaped by their own egoistic needs to make a mark With a hunch added the zealous pursue for fame and recognition even political power much of the scientific process of nutritional guidance is a dismaying disaster for the public No villain just starting out by anxious good guys trying to address a public panic A few factors have created this perfect storm raging over the last thirty years in US A President s heart attack a researcher s oversized zeal and energy Ancel Keys a government plodded to find a solution by the panic stricken public and a media and press withholding their journalistic critical thinking all created the initial locked in policy making wheel toward low fat diet With a charismatic great man in Keys innocuous data selection biases skewed funding and academic career making the US becomes a land of fear and loathing for fat particularly the saturated kind All based on several links of plausible logic which were never properly verified and now nearly in complete disputes serum cholesterol leads to heart disease dietary saturated fat leads to serum cholesterol and body fat Only recently I was able to understand such links are highly improbably given human metabolic process and clinical trials Only because I was curious to read something sounded so wrong from my years hearing of the official mantra I am not alone in the mantra even the smartest and most resourceful people still adhere to that mantra Synaptic connections make two generations of Americans instinctively flinch from the sight of lard butter and coconut oil The emotional short cut of what you eat is what you are making the public in constant fear and loathing of bodily fat while deeply unsatisfied by the governmental sanctioned foodInterestingly the Big Food does not come too badly in the overall drama By their profit maximizing imperative strongly goaded by government and interest groups they had to make worse and worse changes in their product lines replacing saturated fat by trans fat replacing trans fat by sugar They are secondary players while the center podium is AHA NIH and USDA big minds with big guns It would be all too easy to pick a polemic position to write this book which is likely to be counterproductive for readers such me I had been taken on the fat is bad for too long it has become an article of faith and a knee jerking reaction to defend Yet the author took the difficult road to painstakingly survey all the evidences to see if the case by the majority case hold One case after another from the original epidemiological studies to the failures of large scale clinical trails the author comes to the inevitable and inconvenient conclusion that we were on a wrong path and wrong for a long time even with the valiant resistance of a minority of researchers and a few critical minded journalist such as Gary Taubes I recall the fanfare greeted last year on the success of the Mediterranean Diet now the culture and scientific background of this D diet comes to much paler light Even all the evidence there is reasonable doubt against all the diet heart theory against fat Now the tide is turning toward sugar refined carbohydrates wheat product grain in general and the overall amount of carbohydrate in the diet including starchy vegetables and fruit This book reflects the state of affairs of the low carb vs low fat battle Of course long term data would add our knowledge but the balance is definitely tilted against the old conventional wisdom As for me a watershed moment to reflect on my own instinctual reaction and selection bias in this field Commentary after 16 monthsAfter reading this book in June 2014 I went into several weeks of research Ms Teicholz is correct The current conventional and mainstream nutritional advices are much to be doubted both a describing the impact of nutritional choices relating to health and fitness in the general and specific populations 2 the prescribing policies on linking health outcome with nutritional choices Billions of dollars of research and generations of human intelligence went awry by the very few critical forks in the paths We wanted the simple clean convincing answers so badly so here we have two generations of human instinctively linking healthy eating fruit and vegetables bad eating fat and meat I have nothing to revise my previous review My own change of dietary habit changed completely because of this book Except to say that I am very glad to have read this book I will not invoke the usual opprobrium by talking about one single person s experience I am a trained statistician after all Watching the recent months news flow the major organizations are doing multi triangle turns First the sugar gets all the blame but not the high sugar natural fruit juices then it is the nuances of different fat we recommended lower certain type of fat not all types of fat Except northern european countries US UK and the likes are still doing damage control instead of revamping the whole process from scratch Some mistakes are just too much to admit aloud
