The Big Fat Surprise

Why Butter, Meat, And Cheese Belong In A Healthy Diet

For the past 60 years, we have been told that the best possible diet involves cutting back on fat, especially saturated fat. But what if the low-fat diet is itself the problem? What if the very foods we've been denying ourselves -- the creamy cheeses, the sizzling steaks -- are the key to reversing the epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease?

In this captivating, vibrant, and convincing narrative, based on a nine-yearlong investigation, Teicholz shows how the misinformation about saturated fats took hold in the scientific community and the public imagination, and how recent findings have overturned these beliefs. She explains why the Mediterranean diet is not the healthiest, and how we might be replacing trans fats with something even worse.

With eye-opening scientific rigour, The Big Fat Surprise makes the groundbreaking claim that more, not less, dietary fat -- including saturated fat -- is what leads to better health and wellness. Science shows that we have been needlessly avoiding meat, cheese, whole milk, and eggs for decades, and that we can now, guiltfree, welcome these delicious foods back into our lives.
