Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet
Nina Teicholz

Dish up the red meat, eggs, and whole milk! For decades, we’ve been told to cut back on fat--especially saturated fat--and that if we're not getting healthier or thinner, it’s because we’re not trying hard enough. But what if the low-fat diet itself is the problem? What if the fatty foods we’ve been denying ourselves might actually be the key to reversing the epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease? In this thoroughly researched book, journalist Nina Teicholz upends conventional wisdom and argues that more dietary fat can actually lead to better health, wellness, and fitness.
