Alan Watson says there are unintended consequences to low-fat diets

We all sincerely believe that the low-carb message is vitally important for the future of health in America and worldwide. And livin’ la vida low-carb is summarily dismissed as extreme, faddish, and for some unfathomable reason labeled as unhealthy. Meanwhile, millions of people are engaged in controlling their carbohydrate intake, losing weight, feeling fantastic, and getting healthier than they ever thought possible. Today’s podcast interview guest discovered for himself just how healthy low-carb diets really are after seeing the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in a debate with a famous low-fat diet guru.

In Episode 329 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from Alan “Al” Watson, author of Cereal Killer as well as 21 Days to a Healthy Heart: Eat Your Way to Heart Health. He is a big believer in revealing the truth about the real dangers of consuming high-carb foods and their detrimental effect on obesity and disease. Now he is a very strong proponent of a high-fat, low-carb nutritional approach and sharing what he has learned with everyone he can.
