  • Why The Way We Think About Fat Is Wrong w/ Nina Teicholz – Harder to Kill Radio #106

    The rock star of nutritional health, Nina Teicholz, will be discussing how our views on fat may be wrong and why we may not be getting the whole truth about the science behind nutrition. In this episode, we will divulge the myths surrounding society’s idea of health and wellness, and how to find out the truth about what you really should be eating.

    Since the 1960’s, the way in which our nutrition has been institutionalized has had a cloaking effect on how we think about food. Most of us have not been told the truth about which foods our bodies truly need to thrive, and Nina is here to set the record straight.

    “The reason it took me so long is that all of these ideas are so counterintuitive that it took me a really long time to actually convince myself that I was onto something that could be true.” (4:29)

    “People don’t have an accurate description of what is going on in nutrition science because there has been an overwhelming bias towards diets low in saturated fat and high in grains and plants, and that bias has been around for 40 or 50 years now.” (21:11)  

    “If you were a Ph.D. Nutrition scientist your career would be over if you wrote a book like mine” (36:15)

    “What is this attempt to attack low carb by all these experts? I think they are threatened by another model that is really, really, different from theirs, and is supported by evidence.” (43:45)
