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.
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.
“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”
