The French diet–steak, red wine, cheese and chocolate — is rehabilitated.

For some, this will be hard to swallow.
“So, as the guidelines have recommended cutting down on meat, especially red meat, this meant that many people began to increase their consumption of carbohydrates.

Decades later, it’s not hard to find evidence that this might have been a bad move. Many now believe that excessive carbohydrate consumption may be contributing to the obesity and diabetes epidemics. A Cochrane Review of all randomized controlled trials of reduced or modified dietary fat interventions found that replacing fat with carbohydrates does not protect even against cardiovascular problems, let alone death.”

Government recommendations on how much fat and salt you should eat weren’t always based on the best available evidence. That may be changing.
