Dr Aseem Malhotra on BBC1 discussing the focus on good, real food as opposed to calorie counting without thinking about the quality of the calories.

The most important aspect for me in these types of discussions is that everyone usually concedes that a “balanced diet” is healthy, but the definition of “balanced” is never tackled head-on. It’s still un-pc to say that my plate of roughly 70% fat is “balanced” (and awesome).

Here is his (and his co-authors’) editorial piece in the open-access journal Open Heart. Bonus easter egg: he uses a hotmail email address. Nice troll work, Doctor.
