Although some avoid gluten in an attempt to lose weight, most avoid it due to autoimmunity.

Time Magazine Pushes Fat Myths Beginning In 1961, Offers Mea Culpa In 2014

Time Magazine Pushes Fat Myths Beginning In 1961, Offers Mea Culpa In 2014 | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it

"Oh how the times are changing fast in our perception of nutrition. While our culture has been deeply embedded in fat-phobia for over three decades, it now seems that the tide is turning in favor of looking at dietary fat as a good thing."

 

My latest evidence–the June 23, 2014 front cover of Time magazine boldly proclaiming “Eat Butter. Scientists labeled fat the enemy. Why they were wrong” by Senior Editor and enviro-writer Bryan Walsh. This is a stark juxtaposition to the infamous front cover with the bacon and eggs shamed in a frown face that ran back on March 26, 1984 telling us about the “bad news” regarding fat on our cholesterol and health. And because this was Time magazine, it got some attention on mainstream television when media darling registered dietitian Joy Bauer offered up her analysis of this story on the TODAY show with Matt Lauer, Al Roker and the gang on set listening to this positive coverage about saturated fat being HEALTHY! Unbelievably amazing!

OK butter has gotten a bad rap all these years, but it's actually the bread and starchy carbs that many people put it on, that are the problem. Interesting.

Decoding Health Media

Decoding Health Media | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it
In January 2012, health reporter Tara Parker-Pope wrote a cover story for the New York Times Magazine titled “The Fat Trap.” The 5,500-word article, packed with pedigreed sources, explored the science of weight loss. Its conclusion? For most obese people, permanent weight loss is a pipe dream. The piece was widely disseminated — this was the Times, after all. It was broadcast on radio stations and television news reports, and big media outfits like National Public Radio and the Huffington Post interviewed Parker-Pope herself to spread the once-fat-always-fat message.
