In a damning report that accuses major public health bodies of colluding with the food industry, the National Obesity Forum and the Public Health Collaboration call for a “major overhaul” of current dietary guidelines. They say the focus on low-fat diets is failing to address Britain’s obesity crisis, while snacking between meals is making people fat.
Instead, they call for a return to “whole foods” such as meat, fish and dairy, as well as high-fat, healthy foods including avocados, arguing: “Eating fat does not make you fat.”
The usual riposte is to claim “science” has proved the opposite, and then damn the people directly (by accusing them of not following the guidelines.) But, the facts say that the per-capita consumption of carbohydrates and vegetable oils has risen materially since the government (both her and there) started pushing both.
