Best of 2010



It's been an amazing year for the science of diet and nutrition. I've reported on dozens of what I feel were the best articles and blogged about others in emails and on the Dr. Gourmet Facebook page.

It's a little difficult to keep up with sometimes, for me, and I know that it's a challenge for you to know what the big picture is and how to apply it to your day to day life. This week I want to take a moment to recap some of what I think are the most important articles published recently and how they affect you. These are five of the best articles but also five things that you can easily change to make your own life healthier.

1. Red Meat

SteakA study published in the journal of the American Heart Association, Circulation, took a look at the connection between red meat, processed meats, and heart disease and diabetes. They found that the issue is processed meat and not really eating red meat in general. Red Meat is Fine! Redux

2. Portion Control

4. Snack on Nuts

PeanutsI have reported over and over that there's a lot of benefit to nuts. This is the one that helps disprove the concept of a low-fat diet being healthier. Not low-fat but good-fat. Nuts and Cholesterol

5. Don't Drink Soda

You knew that I would have to toss that one in here, but it's pretty amazing how little soda it takes to cause diabetes and health problems. More on Sugary Beverages and Your Health
