If you are considering going keto, you need access to resources! When making real life changes, planning is a must. I think most people get that. What I think we often miss is that a successful change hinges on both planning and execution. It seems the execution part is where failure readily happens. This is part 1 of 5 in a series of low carb lifestyle articles to help you get and stay on track through the power of building your resource library!
Nina Teicholz - Who knew?
Nina is my new found keto resource love! I had heard her name several times over the last two years but for whatever reason didn’t get around to watching her interviews on YouTube. Then a few months ago, she popped up again under my recommendations and I clicked play.
Wow! I so appreciate someone who does his/her homework and without a doubt she does! She gave me a new perspective on the history of obesity including the role polyunsaturated vegetable oils play. She spent nine years writing her book “The Big Fat Surprise”. If you are looking to answer the question of “Why”, Nina is your girl!

The low carb lifestyle connection
As you know, eating keto means eating high fat, low carb and moderate protein. Much of the world, today, still believes that eating fat is bad. You and I know this to be false but we still have a lot of work to do to turn this ship!
Most people except that sugar is bad and are begrudgingly coming to realize carbs, in general, are as well. The biggest hurdle, in my mind, is getting them to understand that fat is healthy and has been sorely missing from our diet for the last 70 years!
This is where Nina comes in by playing a big role in the debunking of the ‘fat is bad” myth. While Nina is best known for her investigative journalism on the history and dangers of vegetable oils, she takes her reporting to an entirely different level by digging into so called “evidence” that position both fat and red meat as being ‘unhealthy”.
So take a listen to this video and by all means let me know what you think by commenting, below.
By the way, Nina started the Nutrition Coalition, an organization with the singular focus of getting the US Dietary Guidelines to be based on real evidence. When you think about the tremendous number of public programs controlled or influenced by these guidelines, school lunch programs, hospital food, doctor’s recommendations etc., you realize that real change is needed if we are going to get healthy as a nation.
Take care and, as always, stay healthy!
