Dr Oz: Saturated Fat Health Myth
Dr. Peter Attia tells Dr. Oz that nutrition contains a lot of mythology, including saturated fat, which has always been blamed for clogging the arteries. He says, though, that highly refined grains and sugars are probably more to blame than anything else for poor health.
Dr. Oz explains that even though we have all been taught saturated fat is bad for us, it might not be so harmful, but he still has a hard time telling you to go out and eat cheeseburgers and bacon all the time. Dr. Attia says that while he understands Dr. Oz concern it is important to think more about what you eat with the cheeseburger, like a highly processed bun, sugary ketchup, and french fries, and the impact they could be having in your heart health because the cheeseburger alone is probably not harmful.
Dr Oz: Coconut Oil Healthy Saturated Fat
More and more Dr. Oz says it is becoming acceptable to add foods containing saturated fats into your diet, but you have to make the right choices, especially when it comes to dairy products. Both Dr. Oz and Dr. Attia agree that full-fat dairy products are better for you than their low-fat or no-fat counterparts.
- Greek Yogurt
- Milk – buy whole or 2%
- 3 ounces of lean chicken, steak, or pork
- 1 egg, including the yolk, which contains most of the nutrients.

- Pumpkin Seeds
Dr. Attia says that once you strip all the processed food from your diet you can pretty much eat whatever your want and until you are not hungry anymore.
