Exploring the sense and nonsense of food and health

The Truth about Nutrition Science

Leave a comment

Dr. David L. Katz nails it for those of us who feel that nutrition science is full of myths and misinformation.  Dr. Katz, is the author of The Truth about Food.

The Standard American Diet in my opinion needs a lot of work and is full of imbalances to name a few:

  • Too little Potassium; too much sodium
  • Too many omega-6 fats; too few omega-3 fats
  • Too much animal protein; too few plant proteins
  • Too many refined carbohydrates; too few complex carbohydrates
  • Too many processed foods; too few whole foods
  • Too much meat; too few fruits and vegetables
  • Too many calories; too few nutrients
