She documents how the low-fat nutrition advice of the past sixty years has amounted to a vast uncontrolled experiment on the entire population, with disastrous consequences for our health.</p><p>For decades, we have been told that the best possible diet involves cutting back on fat, especially saturated fat, and that if we are not getting healthier or thinner it must be because we are not trying hard enough. But what if the low-fat diet is itself the problem? What if the very foods we’ve been denying ourselves—the creamy cheeses, the sizzling steaks—are themselves the key to reversing the epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease?</p><p> Tue, 08 Jul 2014 14:35:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 94295 at http://wamc.org "The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat And Cheese Belong In A Healthy Diet" By Nina Teicholz Tanglwood - Executive Chef Joshua Ingraham http://wamc.org/post/tanglwood-executive-chef-joshua-ingraham <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>The Shed and Ozawa Hall aren’t the only buildings Tanglewood has to offer.</p><p>The Tanglewood Grille is located just inside the Main Gate next to the Gift Shop.
