On our last day in Austin for PaleoFX (which, by the way was AWESOME – I recommend Nom Nom Paleo’s coverage if you missed it!) my lovely roommate (Lea of PaleoSpirit) and I had the TV on as we were getting ready to head into Austin for the day. All of a sudden we started hearing about how statins were bad and cholesterol and saturated fat weren’t the worst things in the world. Um, what?! So of course we took a seat and watched.
Of course now I can’t find a YouTube video with the interview, but I’m sure it’ll come around soon. I’ll post it as soon as I find it. In the meantime, you can check out this article in which Dr. Lundell talks about his beliefs.
Dr. Lundell, a Yale-trained thoracic surgeon talked about his “diet”, which includes:
Good quality meats (pastured, grass-fed, etc)
High fat dairy/eggs
He also talked about staying away from n-6 fatty acids and focusing more on saturated fats.
No mention of grains either way, but hey – that’s pretty good for being on Fox News. This is EXACTLY what we need right now to get this movement into the eyes of the general public -a super-qualified medical doctor touting it on Fox News. Perfect.
