I have watched this, and some of it is interesting, but the reality is that the findings are biased, as is the premise of the study itself.
If you really want to better your health without making drastic changes, just rid yourself of all processed foods and just go back to real food:
Meats, fruits, veggies, nuts, legumes, natural oils and fats, etc. This will get your body in tune with where it needs to be, and from there, you can
tweak the ratio of how much of each that you eat, if necessary.
Basically, it's the Paleo diet, but without removing things like grains and legumes and the like.
Seriously, though, if our society would just rid itself of the dependence on manufactured, processed foods, we'd be so much more healthy. It's a fight
I'm currently battling, but am making progress on. My biggest issue is empty calories (soda and candy, like Twix and Snickers and M&Ms). I'm fine with
avoiding fast food and boxed and processed items otherwise.
ETA: And please keep in mind that fats are not a bad thing if they are the good fats--it has been proven that focusing on a low-fat diet is a terrible
thing to do, as our brains and other parts of our body NEED good fats to properly function and remain healthy.
