The Pegan Diet: Have Fats With Every Meal

Fat has been unfairly vilified for decades. The truth is that the right fats can make you healthy and lean, and can fuel your brain, while the wrong fats can be deadly. Unlike sugar, which is pretty much all bad, fats are complicated. Some people thrive on a high-fat diet, while others gain weight and struggle with abnormal cholesterol. However, even though fats are complicated, eating a fat-free diet is not good for your health. We need fats to survive. In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman discusses why we should be eating fats with every meal, the seventh principle in his new book, “The Pegan Diet: 21 Practical Principles for Reclaiming Your Health in a Nutritionally Confusing World” out February 23, 2021.
