Dr. Aseem Malhotra, is a Cardiologist, in U.K.
He has brought out a new documentary, “THE BIG FAT FIX”.
According to him Fat is not the enemy but Sugar is, and how refined carbohydrates, white bread and white pasta – are false friends, and must be consumed in moderation. “Some people have an outdated fear of fat,” says Dr. Malhotra. It is nonsense. Full-fat, non-processed dairy, he says is good for the heart and keeps you fuller for longer.”
Dr. Malhotra dismisses, the current health consensus: ” The focus had been on cholesterol, weight and burning calories – it’s all fatally flawed. The root cause driving heart disease and diabetes id Insulin resistance. What drives insulin resistance is diet high in sugar and refined carbohydrates.”
What the doctor prescribes
*FAT IS NOT THE ENEMY: Cheese and Butter are off the banned list. Virgin Olive oils and fistful of nuts are your dietary best friends.
** STOP COUNTING CALORIES: What really matters is the quality of the calories you eat.
*** CUT OUT PROCESSED & REFINED SUGAR: You can eat plenty of fruits and Vegetables.
– REDUCE YOUR CONSUMPTION of refined carbohydrates- pasta is not a main course and pizza is a treat.
– Don’t sit for more than 1 hour on your desk. Stretch, walk or climb up and down the stairs, or do deep breathing off and on.
