According to Dr. Lori Shemek, a successful diet isn't centered on calories or cardio. She says, "Cutting calories doesn't cut it." Our problems with fat are created because we eat foods that cause the body's natural fat cells to become inflamed.
Sadly, the staples of the Standard American Diet -- from pasta and bread to factory-farmed chicken and cattle, from sugar and artificial sweeteners to salad dressing and soft drinks -- irritate our fat cells, causing chronic inflammation and chronically oversized fat cells. This irritation causes the body to store fat permanently, no matter how hard you exercise or how diligently you cut back on calories.
Dr. Shemek calls this serious condition FATflammation, and only when you decrease the inflammation of the fat cells can you achieve the weight loss and optimum health you've been chasing. We need to forget about counting calories, counting points, fad diets, no-fat diets, and spending countless hours at the gym.
Dr. Shemek joins Dr. Bond to discuss the idea behind FATflammation, as well as the following key topics:
- Core Underlying Cause of Weight Gain
- Low-Level Inflammation
- The Calorie Myth
- The Fat Myth

- Foods Many Believe are Healthy (But Are Not)
