Diet is an interesting topic which I usually avoid discussing if I can. Discussions can tend to be quite emotive and devolve in to arguments which support each position. In many instances it is adversarial in nature which is disappointing. From my perspective I will simply attempt to avoid any confrontational statements and keep this as impartial as one can.
There is no doubt that the Paleo (Paleolithic diet) (link to be included) and LCHF (low carbohydrate high fat diet) (link to be included) trends have improved the quality of lives on tens of thousands of people and moved mainstream science and dietary advice forward in many respects. Fat has never been evil and should never have been portrayed that way. It is good that people are no longer fearful of avocado and eggs. There have been some secondary benefits from this movement e.g. the debate on the role of statins in primary prevention of low risk groups is a major one. There is however no doubt in my mind that overzealous promotion, modification of the diets and vilification of certain nutrients has been a backward step in many respects.
