It never ceases to amaze me that people still think eating fat is unhealthy. We’ve known since the 1960s that fat is not our enemy. But that didn’t stop the American Heart Association (AHA), the American Diabetes Association (ADA), and countless other organizations from trying to convince you otherwise.
I have to give credit where credit is due. I attribute much of what I know to my extensive work with Dr. Robert Atkins. But it wasn’t until author Gary Taubes came out with his New York Times cover story and his book, Why We Get Fat, that I was able to see just how much of a farce the “fat causes disease” theory really is.
The truth is, Mr. Taubes demolished the medical, scientific, and nutrition fields that had spent billions of dollars building and profiting from the delusion that eating fat causes heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, dementia, arthritis… just to name a few. Even more eye opening — the smoke and mirrors of this myth (and the dietary advice against fat) may have actually caused the very diseases they say they were warning us about.
And you know what? Mr. Taubes — and Dr. Atkins — didn’t come to those conclusions using some sort of alternative science or fringe information. They used the same exact nutritional information and science that I, and others before me, have used to tell you the truth about nutrition.
What I don’t understand is how everyone else could have read those very same studies and come up with a completely different — and totally wrong — set of ideas that have led us to the diabetes, obesity, and heart disease epidemics we now face, decades later.
The wrong side of history
When I was in medical school, doctors were taught to question things. But today, many health care professionals are completely consumed by professional authoritarianism, career dogma, grant support addiction, the limits of peer reviews, the medical publishing business, the need for money and collegial esteem, government power and political “scientific” positions… and the list goes on and on.
Many of these doctors are marching to the tune played by the powers that be. A tune they initially thought was based on good science. But when you look at who composed that tune the truth becomes clear: Big Agriculture. Big Government. Big Academia. Big Industry. Big Marketing. Big Pharma…
This has led to a proliferation of bad, unsupported dogma, as well as both the demonization and idolization of foods without all of the scientific evidence. Eating fat became “bad” because it contained more calories than carbohydrates. Hence, the entire law of calories in versus calories out became the weight loss paradigm.
And of course, we know that to be false. In fact I’ve based my whole career on that fact. And I wrote extensively about it in the February 2015 issue of my monthly Logical Health Alternatives newsletter (“The great ‘fat-free’ fake-out”).

Overcoming science dogma
There were so few of us out there who kept our eyes open to what was happening in the medical world. We challenged the doctrine and prevailing practices as the truth became more and more obvious. We watched the obesity epidemic spread throughout the population. And it’s become my life’s work to fix it.
History will show that the diseases of human civilizations may have been brought about by the very institutions that were supposed to keep us healthy.
So before you get fooled into believing the fat-free rhetoric that’s been shoved down our throats for years, here are a few things for you to remember:
- Dietary fat is not the cause of obesity or heart disease.
- Obesity is a disorder of excess fat accumulation, not from eating too much fat.
- Consuming excess calories does not make us fat.
- Exercising more to burn more calories than we consume does not lead to weight loss — only hunger.
- Obesity occurs due to an imbalance in the hormonal regulation of fat. Specifically, I’m talking about the insulin resistance associated with type 2 diabetes.
I wrote an entire protocol to prevent and reverse type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, and metabolic syndrome. In it, I show you how to avoid the pitfalls of obesity by giving your body the nutritional support it needs — without drugs. It’s called my Metabolic Repair Protocol.
