The June 12, 1014, Time Magazine cover got it wrong when it promoted saturated fat – telling us to eat butter. I was thrilled when I came across a post by Plant Positive in response that explains some of the history leading up to this story. Here at Hypnosis Health Info I am proud to stand with Plant Positive, Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Michael Gregger, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jeff, Novick, Julieanna Hever, Colin Campbell and a host of others who are dedicated to plant based health. As Dr. McDougall would say, “the fat you eat is the fat you wear.” If you are sick and tired of wearing fat and being sick and tired, Slender For Life™ hypnosis for weight loss can make your plant based lifestyle easy.
How Time Magazine Sacrificed Its Standards to Promote Saturated Fat
Written by Plant Positive June 28, 2014: The editors of Time Magazine want you to eat butter. They said so on the cover of their June 23, 2014 issue. Why would they want you to eat butter? Butter is high in saturated fat so it raises our LDL-C, or “bad” cholesterol. The cholesterol in LDL particles is considered “bad” because it builds up the plaque in our arteries. Saturated fats also seem to promote inflammation. Why would Time promote butter and other foods high in saturated fat? What was their argument to eat this way?
The Time piece was written by Bryan Walsh and for the most part it was predictable rehash of the many myths and fallacies embraced by low-carbohydrate diet advocates for decades now. I’ve created a website and a YouTube channel to educate the public about the tricks of the low-carb promoters and this article offered nothing I haven’t seen already. What sets this article apart, however, was its prominence. Somehow the low-carb world’s distorted view of nutrition found its way into the pages of the nation’s leading news magazine. While this should be distressing to anyone who cares about public health, this failure of judgment by Time’s editors does create an opportunity to right a wrong. Perhaps now we can finally dispatch a particularly dishonest narrative pushed by the low-carbers, one they have circulated for years.
(Note from Roger: This important article is well worth your time reading.)
As distressing and misleading as the Time Magazine article is, I respect PlantPositive for seizing this opportunity to right a wrong. Researchers have been telling us for more than 100 years that we should be eating starches – plant based food. By eating plant based food you ensure you are eating the most health-giving foods.
The evidence is clear that a plant based diet can starve cancer, reverse heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune disease, reverse and prevent childhood obesity and help you to lose weight and this time keep it off. Living a plant based lifestyle is healthy and it can be easy, fun and absolutely delicious. And, its a whole lot more affordable than the fast and processed foods most people eat and certainly cheaper the he disease that accompany dairy, fish, chicken and animal proteins.
If you want to lose weight or are living with cancer, diabetes, heart disease or autoimmune disease, hypnosis for weight loss can help to recover your health.
