Ending The Big, Fat Debate

David Katz, M.D. | Posted 07.15.2015 | Healthy Living
David Katz, M.D.

The cap on dietary fat has, indeed, long outlived any utility it ever had. So, too, has a big, fat debate that has diverted us for far too long to nutrients, from the foods that would be a far more constructive, and healthy focus.

Nutrients, Nutritionism, and Historical Nuttiness

Recommending for the intake of nuts, but against the fat content of nuts, was always just plain nutty. Failure to learn from the follies of our nutritional history would be even more so.

One of the most useful reasons for understanding why you have thyroid disease is this: By knowing how it happened, the steps that will help you feel better become more apparent.

Whether a runner or not, we are all living active lifestyles these days and need proper nutrients to fuel our bodies right. Superfoods are a great way to get enough of those nutrients. With all the products promoting superfood claims these days, it can be hard to find the best ones.

The One Nutrient That Is Missing in Nearly Every Diet

Lindsey Smith | Posted 06.29.2015 | Healthy Living
Lindsey Smith

Over the years, I've realized that it's not so much a healthcare crisis we have, but a self-love crisis. Our health depends on so much more than exercise programs and vegetables. No cookie, diet soda, sandwich, or chip can provide the same nourishment that you'd gain from truly loving yourself. Nope, not even a kale smoothie can fill you up as much as truly loving yourself can.

Isaac Newton's Nutrient Supplements

David Katz, M.D. | Posted 04.29.2015 | Healthy Living
David Katz, M.D.

The transcribed conversation in The Atlantic, starting with that headline, is rather the opposite of measured, taking the measure of prevailing sentiment, and apparently concluding that prevailing faith in nutrient supplements warranted some additional throttling. If enthusiasm for supplements is the action of concern here, this piece has opted to highlight the opposing reaction.

Diet, Dog and Dogma

Before the committee report is translated into official guidelines, there is a period of public comment.Some of the commentary will be from public health advocates, but much will be from industry. What exact dietary guidelines will emerge from this gauntlet remains to be seen. But given that, I like what I see so far. I think the advisory committee has done a stellar job.

Cholesterol, Unscrambled

Whether adding eggs to your diet will confer benefit, harm, or neither, almost certainly depends on what you are now eating instead of eggs, and what eggs would be displacing.

Nannies, Ninnies, Nutrients and Nonsense

David Katz, M.D. | Posted 04.08.2015 | Healthy Living

When the New York Times reported recently that a lot of alleged nutrient supplements are devoid of nutrients and supplements, the scrum was immediately predictable. That much more so because we have seen a recent backlash against our over-hyped reliance on supplements as silver bullets.

Rather, leaving aside the swirl of aspersions that likely has Dr. Keys turning in his grave if such things are possible, I simply want to note that his work is...moot. It doesn't matter whether Keys was all right, all wrong, or inevitably -- somewhere in between.

What to Do When Your Food Glows in the Dark

David Katz, M.D. | Posted 09.24.2014 | Healthy Living
David Katz, M.D.

Perhaps it's an exaggeration to say our food glows in the dark, although I'm not entirely sure. But whether or not they actually phosphoresce, these products are indeed designed to glow. The glowing in question, however, occurs within the dark confines of our skulls.

No Taste for Truth?

Knowing What to Eat, Refusing to Swallow It

David Katz, M.D. | Posted 09.01.2014 | Healthy Living
David Katz, M.D.

The argument for an emphasis on actual foods rather than manufactured ingestibles masquerading as such garners little opposition from entities not directly involved in selling the latter. Such entities, however, have access to the best marketing talent money can buy.
