Did you every get that disdainful look on an acquaintance’s face when you said, ‘I consume high fats in my diet’ and soon after enter into a fierce debate about what is good for our health and mostly talking past each other? People can get pretty touchy about what they think they know regarding diet.
So what I suggest is the next time you are about to unload into one of these messy debates is to down-tools and direct people to the following scientific and factual based videos so they can make up their own minds about what is essentially good for them. These presenters are actual doctors and world leading experts on nutrition and health.
Video 1. Dr. Peter Attia: Readdressing Dietary Guidelines
Dr. Peter Attia (ex surgeon and now longevity specialist) discusses the history behind our beliefs about fat and cholesterol’s effects on our body systems and uses scientific data to debunk myths.
Video 2. Dr. Paul Mason – ‘From fibre to the microbiome: low carb gut health’
What is so impressive about Dr Paul Mason’s videos unlike the great majority of videos on such subjects is his presentation of scientific evidence (see references to actual studies and flowcharts). The woohs and ahhs in the audience is something to behold. The other notable aspect is he is presenting here at The University of Technology Sydney, a highly respected place of learning in my home country. This is not some fancy temporary you tube studio where the speak has a clear agenda to sell products, books or receive more likes. Dr Paul Mason obtained his medical degree with honours from the University of Sydney, and also holds degrees in Physiotherapy and Occupational Health. He is a Specialist Sports Medicine and Exercise Physician.
Video 3. Dr. Paul Mason – ‘Low Carb from a Doctor’s perspective’
This doctor like no other I have ever seen armed with a plethora of rigorous factual based research has seriously debunked 50 years of supposedly expert advice presented in ‘official’ dietary guidelines such as The Australian Dietary Guideline.
Video 4. Dr. Paul Mason – ‘Saturated fat is not dangerous’
Lets make no bones about it, Dr Mason’s series of videos at the University of Technology, Sydney is second to none with regards to presenting irrefutable evidence in favour of the low carb, low fibre, and high (healthy) fat diet.
So direct these videos to your friends. No rants, no chants, no virtue signalling…just these videos. If your average person on the pro-typical recommended official diet can’t get the message from these, they never will.
