Low-Fat Diets and Exercise are Pointless

Low fat diets and exercise are pointless for those wanting to lose weight and obese people should simply eat less, a former shadow health minister told the House of Lords yesterday.

.

Lord McColl, emeritus professor of surgery at Guys Hospital in London, warned that current health advice to avoid fat was false and misleading and was fuelling the obesity epidemic.

.

Speaking at a House of Lords debate, the former surgeon warned that exercising was useless against the huge levels of calories from carbohydrates and sugars that people are now consuming. He warned that the obesity epidemic was as bad for public health as the 1919 flu epidemic.

.

In the UK the Department of Health and Nice (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) maintains for many years that the obesity epidemic was due to lack of exercise, he told peers.

.

Its a pity that the 500 people employed by Nice didnt think to go into the gymnasium get on a machine and exercise to see how few calories you actually burn off.

.

One can pedal away on one of those machines for half an hour and only two or three hundred calories are burned up. One has to run miles to take a pound of fat off.

.

The whole subject has been bedevilled by all sorts of theories about the course of the obesity; genetics, epigenetic, psychological disturbances. None of them is the cause of the obesity epidemic.

.

One fact remains. It is impossible to be obese unless one is eating too many calories.

.

In May the National Obesity Forum and the Public Health Collaboration called for a major overhaul of dietary guidelines saying 30 years of urging people to adopt low-fat diets was having disastrous health consequences.

.

Their report claimed the low-fat and low-cholesterol message, which has been official policy in the UK since 1983, was based on flawed science and had resulted in an increased consumption of junk food and carbohydrates.

.

Lord McColl said eating fat was important because it kept people feeling fuller for longer, and advised overweight people to start adding fat into their diet.

Key conclusions

National Obesity Forum report

Eating fat does not make you fat

Evidence from multiple trials reveals that a higher-fat, lower carbohydrate diet is superior to a low-fat diet for weight loss and cardiovascular risk reduction

Stop counting calories

Calories from different foods have different metabolic effects on the body, so the cumulative calorie count is meaningless

You cannot outrun a bad diet

Obesity is a hormonal disorder leading to abnormal energy partitioning, which cannot be solely fixed by increasing exercise

Saturated fat does not cause heart disease and full-fat dairy is likely to be protective

New meta-analysis of the evidence available forty years ago does not support dietary fat restrictions

Avoid at all costs: processed foods labelled low fat, lite, low cholesterol or proven to lower cholesterol

No single piece of evidence exists that demonstrates reducing dietary saturated fat reduces cardiovascular events and death

Snacking will make you fat

The increase in meal frequency plays an equal if not larger role in obesity and has largely been ignored
