The British Nutrition Foundation's take on the big sat fat story today !

Saturated fat and heart disease damage limitation job today from the BNF.

"Stories in the media today (Wednesday 23rd October) have been debating the evidence for the association between intakes of saturated fat in the diet and risk of heart disease.

Diets high in saturated fat are associated with increased levels of ‘bad’ (LDL) cholesterol in the blood and increased risk of heart disease and stroke. Studies have shown that replacing some saturated fat with unsaturated fat in the diet reduces blood cholesterol. Public health advice is to for the population to reduce intakes of saturated fat and dietary intakes in the UK have reduced over recent decades, although they are still higher than recommended.

Heart disease and stroke are multifactorial conditions and so saturated fat is not the only lifestyle factor to influence a person’s risk of developing these conditions. Reduction of saturated fat intakes should be part of a healthy lifestyle which means eating a healthy balanced diet, being physical active and maintaining a healthy weight."

This healthy balanced diet they are always referring to - healthy ? for whom? Balanced. How? I wish they could be forced to define it more often and in more detail, so that as things changed it would become more apparent to the general public that they are pretty clueless.

I would like to see overweight dietitians appearing frequently to tell us how to lose weight. I often hear people say that the contradictory reports they read or hear about leave them thoroughly confused and as a result they feel they may as well eat whatever they please. If only someone would challenge these meaningless terms.
