Nina Teicholz is a journalist who got interested in the nutrition world after being put on assignment, covering food-related issues. That interest blossomed into something much, much bigger, and led her to discover some of the biggest nutrition lies ever foisted upon the public.
She began her research by looking at the scientific data, and what she found was shocking. Not only was the orthodox idea that fat is bad wrong, it’s exactly the opposite. Saturated fat is healthy, necessary, and good for you. But she had only scratched the surface in exposing the lies.
Her New York Times Bestseller The Big Fat Surprise is part science journal, and part thriller. She shares the disturbing methods of nutritional special interests to prevent healthy fats from being sold, she exposes a glaring flaw in a foundational study that seems to have been overlooked for decades, and she explains the need for the general public to go back to a simpler, whole foods approach to nutrition.
Nina is incredibly insightful, smart, and fun to talk to. You’re gonna love listening almost as much as I enjoyed talking to her.
