Ever since the mid-1970’s when well-meaning politician, George McGovern, spearheaded the move to create the first set of US Dietary Guidelines the battlecry against eating fat began.
Authors, like Gary Taubes (“Why We Get Fat”) and Denise Minger (“Death By Food Pyramid: How Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics and Shady Special Interests Have Ruined Our Health”) have done an excellent job of writing about this if you're interested – but I digress.
It has only taken about 35 years to finally correct the bad rap that fat was branded with! In late June 2015 a press release announced that the US Dietary will no longer focus on fat restriction and instead will focus on food quality. HALLELUJAH!
