It seems that every other day some new study comes out with conflicting information about fats, oils, nuts and seeds.
Are you "going nuts" trying to sort the truth from the propaganda? Are all fats created equal? Is olive oil a health food? Is the Mediterranean Diet the healthiest diet? What about the French Paradox? Are nuts and seeds good for you?
In this eye-opening lecture, Jeff will help you understand the skinny on fats.
This is a short excerpt from Jeff Novick's 90-minute talk on fats. Want the full picture about olive oil? About the Mediterranean Diet? The various kinds of fats?
Conclusions: "In terms of their effects on postprandial (after a meal) endothelial function, the beneficial components of the Mediterranean and Lyon Diet Heart Study diets appear to be the antioxidant-rich foods—vegetables, fruits, and their derivatives such as (balsamic) vinegar, and omega-3-rich fish and canola oils—not olive oil. Canola oil may share some of the unique vasoprotective properties of other omega-3-rich oils, such as fish oil. Dietary fruits, vegetables, and their products appear to provide some protection against the direct impairment in endothelial function produced by high-fat foods, including olive oil." -- "The postprandial effects of components of the Mediterranean diet on endothelial function."
