A recent article in the British Medical Journal puts to rest a decades-old myth: Saturated fat is NOT bad for the heart. This is news I’ve long suspected! And we now have science to prove it. Fat is not the enemy when it comes to cardiovascular disease, weight gain, brain health, and so many other issues. It turns out that sugar—in all its many guises—is the real culprit for making you fat.
I have been counseling women on the underlying effects of sugar for about twenty years now. This began during a time when fat was thought to be the enemy, and eating lots of low-fat carbs and non-fat carbs were believed to promote heart health.
I recently received a letter from a woman who was responding to the interview I did with Jorge Cruise about the special dangers of sugar in women over 40. She was very concerned about the fact that many of the products Cruise recommends can’t be found in her area of the country.
