Today I watched a segment on Neil Cavuto's show where he interviewed Suzanne Somers. I was surprised she was on national tv, actually, because most news stations consider her to be a little wacky because she believes in alternatives.

It was good to hear someone talking to him about alternative options, because since Neil had heart surgery this past summer (2016) he is all about allopathic medicine and, of course, he has the "food pyramid" totally upside down now, on advice of his ignorant cardiologist (whom Neil praises a lot). That doctor has him, and many other people afraid of a good steak or real butter and good quality sea salt, etc., but not afraid of statins and other drugs. Imagine that.

I don't think Somers is a vegetarian but one time I looked through one of the books she wrote and in my mind she has things a little off balance. She doesn't combine carbs with fats (like baked or roasted carrots with butter, as a for instance) and I'm pretty sure that's been found to be wrong now.

Most of the books I saw of hers where she was really thin were from the late 1990's and very early 2000's. Now she's kinda chunky I think, but she's no spring chicken anymore either! Nevertheless, I have my own way of thinking about food and it rarely has much to do with the way others think of food, see. :mrgreen: And yes, I could stand to lose a little weight now that I'm in my 60's but I'm not going to worry about it because I'm healthy. My doctor wants to switch blood with me after my blood tests last year in May, so we'll see what is revealed this May. I only go to the doctor once a year and then only because I have to. Besides, it's well known that older people do better if they are a little overweight as compared to being underweight.

Also, most people have the intake of salt all wrong because of their doctor's very limited knowledge of nutrition - but that's another story on health.

This vid is about 7 1/2 min. Give it a look-see:

She does make one mistake, though. She says Dr. Steven Sinatra wrote a book called The Cholesterol Myth when actually that book was written by Uffe Ravnskov. The one written by Sinatra was co-authored with another guy (a nutritionist) and was called The Great Cholesterol Myth.
