What is the Optimal Diet for the Prevention of Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease?

The skeptical cardiologist was asked to give a lecture in July on diet to the cardiology fellows in our training program at Saint Louis University.

Needless to say, I didn’t hew to current recommendations from the American Heart Association or the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

For example, these recommendations are still promoting the narrative that everyone should minimize the consumption of all forms of saturated fat. This makes for a nice simple message but is clearly not science-based.
I’ll be posting soon on some specific areas where I differ from mainstream dietary dogma in the near future.

In the meantime, you can feast your eyes on this 53 minute recording of the entire Zoom-aided conference.

This streams from my Vimeo site and is totally free of annoying ads. It can be watched without an account or log in.

A summary of what I’ve written on diet and lifestyle on this website can be found at this link.

Skeptically Yours,
