The “Heart-Healthy” Low-Fat Advice Was Killing Him!
After being diagnosed as being overweight with high cholesterol, high triglycerides and being labeled as a ‘high risk’ for heart disease, David Diamond PhD, decided to follow the standard diet advice that gets the ‘tick of approval’ and was recommended by his doctor. Namely – the ‘Heart Healthy’ Low Fat, low animal product approach – he cut the fat and started exercising.
And that’s when things got even worse . . .
The mainstream advice given to him by his doctors wasn’t working. If anything, it was killing him.
Dr. Diamond’s high cholesterol went higher and his triglycerides skyrocketed. His doctor recommended that he start taking drugs to lower his cholesterol, but David didn’t listen. Rather than head to the pharmacy for drugs to lower cholesterol as suggested by his doctor – he instead headed for the library.
Why? Well as a Ph.D. professor – he wanted to learn all he could about cholesterol, obesity and heart health.
What he found was that the areas of heart disease and nutrition are filled with incompetence and massive conflicts of interest.
David discovered that many of the “truths” that are perpetuated by mainstream media and even health professionals are often completely false. Prime examples of that are the associations between saturated fat intake, cholesterol, and heart disease.
He also uncovers the history of obesity and how doctors knew that reducing carbs could cure obesity a 150 years ago, but how this knowledge got lost along the way.
In the following video, neuroscientist David Diamond, Ph.D. explains how he had personally started to suffer from the effects of eating the standard western diet.
