It’s Monday – and time for another Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM). Today, I’m continuing to share from Dr. Mary Enig’s and Sally Fallon’s book, “Eat Fat, Lose Fat.” In Chapter 2, their goal is to debunk the lipid hypothesis through answering four questions – or as they put it, exploding four myths.

q-a
