The title says it all – one of Ireland’s top consultant dieticians (with multiple nutrition degrees) let’s us know what healthy eating is all about. It’s only about the calories – that’s what counts. Breakfast cereals are full of great nutrition, with relatively few calories. Carbs are irrelevant physiologically – it’s the calories stupid. We’re just eating too much is all. Most importantly, we need to properly follow the current guidelines and then “no-one would be overweight or obese”.
Unmissable and classic piece of risible radio – enjoy!
p.s. Here’s the “scientific” study referenced – even worse than the usual associational claptrap http://gibneyonfood.blogspot.nl/2017/01/think-sweet-stay-slim.html Excerpt: “The NutriSanté study is an internet-based study, initiated in 2009…..Each month, volunteers are invited to complete questionnaires related among other things to food behaviour…..“. Yep – an internet-survey based associational twaddle asking about food preferences. Eight out of ten scientist cats in our survey said this paper is junk (the other two are on food company payroll).
