Diet enemy #1

 Health-conscious?  Here's news you need to know. 

A comprehensive mainstream study from Harvard University confirms the health and weightloss message from my favourite fringe doctors (like Dr McDougall and Dr T Colin Campbell).

Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, cardiologist and epidemiologist at the Harvard School of Public Health:

“This study shows that conventional wisdom — to eat everything in moderation, eat fewer calories and avoid fatty foods — isn’t the best approach.

“There are good foods and bad foods, and the advice should be to eat the good foods more and the bad foods less. The notion that it’s O.K. to eat everything in moderation is just an excuse to eat whatever you want.”

I have to stop quoting.  The whole article is a must read, covering specific types of foods linked to weight gain, exercise, health, television, slow weight gain, and the failure of the single factor approach to weight loss.
