Dr Michael Mosley Now Says “I Was Wrong, We Should Be Feasting on Fat”

dr michael mosley feast on fat

Dr Michael Mosley, television journalist and author of the Fast Diet used to believe all saturated fats were bad for us so he wouldn’t eat beef, full fat milk and butter. He now says new studies have revealed that this isn’t the case and heart disease has a stronger link with sugar consumption. 

"Eggs are an example of how we got it wrong on fats. People were advised to eat just 1 a week in the 80's, but now regular consumption is encouraged as they are high in protein"

Dr Mosley had switched to skimmed milk, avoided yoghurt with any hint of fat and a few decades later he had put on over two stone, despite exercising regularly. Two years ago he discovered that he was borderline diabetic. He now eats greek yogurt, eggs,  and more oily fish. He rightly says low-fat diets rarely succeed because it’s hard for people to stick to them as they get too hungry.

    At long last!!!!!
    I have been keeping the 5/2 diet quite religiously since you started it 4 years ago, I have kept my blood sugar count in some sort of order, so I am not needing any medication regarding type 2 diabetes but the high fat diet now seems to really have got it in the normal range most of the time.
    Thank you for all your ‘self testing’
    Rosemary
