An outstanding editorial by Dr. Aseem Malhotra, cardiologist, has happily blown me away. It really is worth a read of the full text (linked below), but I thought I’d break down the best parts for you to get an idea of his viewpoint and recommendations.

If I have to see one more patient tormenting themselves over the calories in a healthy food I may have to take some nutrition labels and burn them in an act of defiance. Grrrr.
Meanwhile, as the bonfire rages, Dr. Malhotra’s article offers me much comfort.
