I happened to see a bit of the Rachael Ray show today and found it rather interesting. She was discussing anti-aging with Dr. Perricone (a dermatologist and anti-aging specialist).
I was pleased that Dr. Perricone was recommending healthy fats such as olive oil and fish oil to help prevent aging. He also suggests that we choose low-glycemic foods and grains. Perricone says low-fat diets aren’t good and that Prozac made it’s appearance around the same time that Prozac did. He said people were getting depressed without enough fat.
It is so encouraging to see good nutritional advice being given on national TV. I’m so sick of seeing low-fat products marketed all over the place. Fat is good for us and we need it! We need to choose good fats such as unrefined olive oil, butter and coconut oil. Let’s keep the good fat and instead do away with things like MSG, refined oils, margarine, white flour and high-fructose corn syrup.
