The Sept 12 issue of Time Magazine is a Special Nutrition Issue with a cover story by Dr. Oz of the eponymous Dr. Oz TV show.
The good doctor also wrote six New York Times best sellers including YOU: The Owner’s Manual, YOU: The Smart Patient, YOU: On a Diet, YOU: Staying Young, YOU: Being Beautiful as well as the award winning Healing from the Heart.
I have read several of these books and am a great admirer of Dr. Oz. I was thrilled to see a cover story sharing his insights into nutrition.
Following is a brief quote that I think will give you an idea about the article.
“The good news is that we now know so much more than we ever did about how food reacts in our bodies — how specific molecules affect specific functions of specific cells. And with that comes new insight into healthy eating that is more than just conventional wisdom or gimmickry. The era of myth and marketing is at last giving way to an era of hard fact. You’ll like some of the new insights, and you won’t like others, but you’d best get used to them. Unlike the fads and fashions that have come before, the facts aren’t going anywhere soon.
“Want to get healthy? Then forget about diet soda and low-fat foods. Instead, tuck into some eggs, whole milk, salt, fat, nuts, wine, chocolate and coffee.
As a person who loves eggs, salt, nuts, chocolate and coffee, this was music to my ears.
“It’s true. Despite conventional wisdom, all of those foods and many more can be beneficial to your body. But overindulge in them, and they can be as problematic as you’ve always been led to believe. The fact is that simple rules that divide things into good-food and bad-food categories tell you only a small part of the story. The rest of it is more complex than most folks know.”
Dr. Oz goes on to explain in some detail the rest of the story. I hope you will pick up a copy and take the time to read it.
