Functional medicine doctor, practicing family physician, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Mark Hyman is our guest today in Episode 1080 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The role of dietary fat as part of a healthy nutritional health plan is undergoing a massive shift over the past few years. All the most current research is showing that the fears most people have had about real food-based fats being a contributing factor in obesity, heart disease, and diabetes is simply not true. Now one of the biggest names in the world of health is standing up in support of a high-fat diet. His name is Dr. Mark Hyman from DrHyman.com and he is one of the most recognized media doctors for his work as the Director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine and founder and medical director of The UltraWellness Center. Dr. Hyman has authored a string of bestselling books and now he's back in 2016 with what is arguably his most important book yet entitled Eat Fat, Get Thin: Why the Fat We Eat Is the Key to Sustained Weight Loss and Vibrant Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hyman discuss why fat isn't harmful to health, why foods like eggs, butter, nuts, avocados, and coconut are actually very healthy, why low-fat diets have been such a disaster for health, why this was a difficult but much-needed book for him to write, how meat fits into a healthy diet, and a whole lot more! Dr. Hyman is a big name in the mainstream health community and we are honored to have him for his first appearance on the podcast today.
