Hi J. Thank you for the in-depth reply and I'm dying to read the book! It's not available here in Brasil, but I'll be picking up a copy soon in the States.

I have been reading the latest scientific studies about the relationship between saturated fats and cholesterol and it's fascinating; however, I don't believe that steak, butter and cheese are healthful foods and cause more harm than good. There are numerous epidemiology and nutritional studies that show how a diet rich in these types of foods increases your risks for inflammation, which is linked to cancer. This is something that I didn't have time to touch on, but it's worth noting. Also I think it's important to take into account how people across America eat these foods - steak frites, bacon cheddar cheese burgers, fried eggs with a side of bacon. The way people eat these foods day in and day out is really unhealthy and because they are so deliciously filling, there's practically no room (or desire) for vegetables and fruits. I also think this book says, "hey it's ok to get the majority of your calories from this type of food" when in actually the majority of calories should be coming from whole foods like vegetables, fruits, legumes and grains. The impression I'm left with is that Nina's suggesting animal foods rich in sat fats are healthy because saturated fats raise HDL cholesterol and light fluffy LDL cholesterol, which is misleading.

With regards to meat consumption, Americans eat way more meat since the '60s and they eat more meat than almost any other country.A Nation Of Meat Eaters: See How It All Adds Upis a great post on the topic. With regards to the Women's Health Initiative, it's important to note that the women on the low-fat diet did not significantly reduce their fat intake (38%-29%) and to see the benefits of a low-fat diet you have to reduce your fat intake to less than 20% of total calories.Low-Fat Diet Not a Cure-All | The Nutrition Source | Harvard School of Public Healthis a greatanalysis of the results of the Women's Health Initiative and I agree with their conclusion.

I think where Nina and I agree is that processed foods including low-fat foods, which came about through the low-fat diet craze, are TERRIBLE. At the end of the day, you can't have your cake and eat it too and a lot of people get duped into buying low-fat sugary yogurts, low-fat Lays potato chips and fat-free peanut butter, which are all loaded with HFCS or other corn derivatives.

Again, thanks for your response and for reading. I'll let you know how I get on with My Big Fat Surprise.
