Episode Description

“Poor Fat! So reviled, so shameful, so unloved.  It betrays our gluttony, our lack of self-control, our low self-esteem, our abject unworthiness.”

Our basic understanding of fat is from low fat diets, to the fat around our middle that we can’t lose.  What if everything we knew was wrong?  What if your basic understanding of why you can’t lose that fat is wrong? Sylvia Tara’s book “The Secret Life of Fat” goes into detail about what fat does, how it works, and how we can conquer it.

Dr. Risk’s Thoughts

With obesity and metabolic syndrome on the rise, topics like this are extremely important.  Our understanding of fat seems to be limited, and we seem lost in a sea of misinformation.  Sylvia Tara’s book was simple and straight forward, and laid out what can be going on in our bodies.  Many people  are exercising and dieting and still can’t lose weight.  Understanding the deeper mechanisms is important, and I have personally experiences the Xenobiotics (chemical toxicity) causing weight gain, and the frustrations many men and women feel when they are faces with something that is not straight forward.
