I have been on a diet for four decades and have put on 30lbs in that time. There is no diet I haven’t tried and there is no diet I haven’t failed on.
I have read them all but there are two facts I have swallowed whole from the doctors and dieticians. 1) Eating cheese is bad for you. 2) You can’t be fit and fat.
Both of them have now turned out to be untrue.
For 16 years researchers followed 4,000 Swedish adults and used blood samples to judge how much dairy was in their diets.
They wanted to discover how many on average had strokes, heart attacks or other serious circulatory events and how many died.
After adjusting for age, lifestyle, and other diseases they discovered cardiovascular disease was lowest for people with high levels of dairy in their blood reflecting high intake of fatty fats.

The researchers also analyse 17 similar studies from other countries and these confirmed their conclusions.
Great news for mature cheddar and mature adults like me who have spent their entire lives going easy on the cheese.
But it was the findings of Glenn Gaesser, a professor at Arizona State University and an associate professor from the University of Virginia that most shocked me.
Effectively it said that you can be fat not fit and if you want to live longer with a better life you would do better to concentrate on exercise rather than dieting.
The study suggested that yo yo dieting was bad for you and claimed that many obesity related health conditions are more likely attributable to low physical activity rather than just being large.
