Have the low-fat dietary regimens of the past sixty years amounted to, shall we say, a hill of beans? In Nina Teicholz’s The Big Fat Surprise she upends received opinion about the fat in our diets and contends that saturated fat might actually hold the key to reversing the epidemics of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. She is joined by Dr. Frank Lipman, the internationally recognized expert in the field of integrative medicine, and award-winning Chef Seamus Mullen, restaurateur of Tertulia and El Colmado, and author of Hero Food.
