In this webinar, Nina Teicholz discusses common misconceptions about saturated fat with Mike Giardina.

Teicholz is an investigative science journalist and author of the New York Times bestseller “The Big Fat Surprise,” which was CrossFit Health’s book of the month for September.

Teicholz starts the webinar by walking through a series of historical events that led to the demonization of saturated fat. She explains how saturated fat, a naturally occurring fat, has constantly been replaced by man-made fats that have been wreaking havoc on human health – these include trans fats and industrialized seed oils.

Teicholz also discusses her goals for two initiatives she leads: the Nutrition Coalition and her Unsettled Science newsletter. The Nutrition Coalition is a nonprofit that seeks to instill greater rigor and transparency in the scientific processes that influence nutrition guidelines and policies. The Unsettled Science newsletter is a resource for all those looking for trustworthy advice on nutrition and for a breakdown of current nutritional research.
