Low-Fat Diet Could Kill You, Major Study Shows

In one of the largest studies of its kind covering 18 countries, scientists report that it’s not the fat in your diet that’s killing you; it’s the carbs. More specifically, according to CBS News, researchers found it’s refined (think: processed) carbs that boost your risk of dying early by 28 percent. Study participants who made fats 35 percent of their daily diet had a 23 percent lower risk of early death as well as an 18 percent lower risk of stroke. On the flip side, those who had a very low intake of saturated fats had a higher risk of death.

If there ever were a time to rethink the food recommendations that the USDA makes in its Food Plate, it’s now. What more proof do we need that burning fat for fuel increases your quality and length of life? More than half of Americans struggle with chronic illness, and 1 in 5 deaths in the U.S. is obesity-related. This is a direct result of eating far too much sugar and grains, too much protein and far too little healthy fat — and now there is a study proving it.

Sadly, too often much of what we eat is poor quality, processed food. Unfortunately, the notions that glucose is the preferred fuel for your body, and that high-quality fats are bad for you have too long been the status quo of federal food guidelines. Hopefully, the powers-that-be will pick up on this and make better informed choices with a new Food Plate.

In the meantime, this is the focus of my latest book, "Fat for Fuel." It's by far the most important book I've ever written, and the one I've poured the most heart and soul into because I believe this information has the power to help you live a longer, better, life, and to prevent and reverse chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart conditions.
