We have bought into the idea that fat on our bodies, and in our food, is a bad thing.
But there is a new way of thinking that not only turns the role of fat in our diets upside down, but it also does the same thing to the nutrition guide known as the food pyramid.
Bob Evans sat down with Drew Manning, a TV host, and best-selling author, who is an expert on the new, wildly popular Ketogenic diet and asked him three questions:
- There are critics, though, who say that the keto diet should only be done in extreme situations; that it's not for the long term; and that, in fact, there are health concerns associated with it. Can you address that?
- There are people watching now who would love to get into shape, but they have no idea where to start. And it seems way too daunting for them. What advice could you give them? Where should they start?
- In our lives, we are bombarded, in the media and elsewhere, with images and the necessity to look good, to be in shape, and to have the perfect body. Certainly, there are health benefits to that whole push. But emotionally, and intellectually, and in other ways, is it that healthy to be so focused on appearance?
