Here’s a good article by Nina Teicholz author of The Big Fat Surprise commenting on the AHA’s recent coconut oil shaming.  Incidentally, I highly recommend The Big Fat Surprise for anyone interested in reading about nutrition and nutrition science.  Not only does it help you understand why we have the dietary recommendations we have but also how the evidence behind those recommends is pretty flimsy.  She discusses better evidence that supports the low carb, high fat nutritional plan I advocate to my patients.
