Does Eating Fat Make You Thin?

by on June 15, 2016

Dr Mark Hyman tells us to eat fat if we want to be thin.

His article “Why Eating Fat Doesn’t Make Us Fat” cites a study in Cellular Metabolism journal that shows replacing carbs with fat leads to burning 100 more calories per day, which translates into 10 pounds of fat loss per year.

Except it doesn’t say that.

It kind 0f (and this is awkward here) says the exact opposite.

I chronicle my discovery in this 4-minute video:
