Think you've been doing all the right things by "cooking light"? In her book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet, investigative journalist Nina Teicholz reports that everything we thought we knew about dietary fats is wrong. For decades, we've been told that the best possible diet involves cutting back on fats -- especially saturated fats -- and that those of us not getting healthier or thinner aren't trying hard enough. Turns out that the very foods we've been denying ourselves are in fact the key to reversing the epidemics of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
