Hannah Sutter: Government Guidelines Regarding Diet Are Skewed From The Start

Filed under: Health — @ July 16, 2010

There’s a rising wave of outright disgust over what is happening with nutritional recommendations by most governmental authorities not just in the United States but in countries all around the world–namely, the blatant misinformation being propagandized to an unsuspecting public about a low-fat, high-carb, plant-based diet. But there’s a rising revolution bubbling up from the grassroots with real people standing up on behalf of what they know has worked for them to dramatically improve their health. That’s what motivated my recent testimony before the USDA 2010 Dietary Guidelines in Washington, DC and today’s podcast interview guest is putting herself on the front lines of this debate as well.

In Episode 381 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from an energetic UK-based attorney named Hannah Sutter who became so disgusted with the conventional dietary wisdom that she decided to create her own low-carb food company in 2006 called GoLower. Hannah is the author of a provocative new book entitled Big Fat Lies: Is Your Government Making You Fat? Hear her discuss why she became angered over the low-fat lie, why she created her low-carb food company, what motivated her to write her book exposing the propaganda of dietary recommendations, the cutting-edge work with ketogenic diets and cancer, how Gary Taubes and Drs. Mike & Mary Dan Eades heavily influenced her mode of thinking, the barriers to low-carb research, her reaction to The New Atkins For A New You book and her slight concerns over it, the published statistical horrors with obesity in the UK, why “intellectual arrogance” is keeping the low-fat lie alive, the specific lies being spread about diet, the sugar vs. starch discussion, why saturated fat isn’t as harmful as we’ve been led to believe, why there are different metabolic effects from fat in dairy compared to fat in meat, why exercise isn’t very important for weight loss, the “ship of fools” that explains why nothing ever changes with dietary recommendations, and so much more!

Click here to be encouraged that the tide is turning ever-so-slowly in the direction of acceptance of high-fat, low-carb living thanks to the efforts of people like Hannah Sutter.
