Heart Disease, Smart Fats and Smart Carbs with Dr. Steven Masley

Welcome! My guest today is Dr. Steven Masley, who is an accomplished physician, chef, and nutritionist. He is also the author of four cookbooks. I’ve been a big fan and follower of his for a long time and am excited to have him on the show! He has a new book coming out soon on the topic of healthy fats, so join us to hear more!

Dr. Steven discusses the following :

  • His new book is an outgrowth of the discussion about the REAL cause of heart disease, which is metabolic syndrome and pre-diabetes.
  • His plan is based on clean protein, smart fat, fiber, and flavor!
  • “Smart fats” include nuts (almonds, pecans, pistachios, walnuts, hazelnuts, and macadamias), salmon, sardines, avocado, dark chocolate, and olive oil.
  • He discusses the controversy about oils, their processing, and their uses.
  • Regarding oils, you have to know your smoke point!
  • Some oils are safe for cooking and some are NOT!
  • Neutral oils are those with no proven benefits or harmful effects, like grapeseed oil and unclarified butter.
  • The goal is 5 servings of smart fats daily.
  • There are smart carbs and bad carbs. The smart carbs are those with more fiber and a lower glycemic response.
  • Nut flours:  Is there a difference from regular grain flours?
  • Aim for 30-40 grams of fiber daily.
  • Dr. Steven sums up his principles with four points:
    • Know the difference between smart, neutral, and bad fats.
    • Eat more smart fat!
    • Add fiber, clean protein, and flavor!
    • Don’t cook fat at the wrong temp to make it toxic!

Dr. Steven has a 30-day meal plan and numerous recipes on his website and in his new book. He shows you how to turn back the clock on aging, and how to prevent hypertension, heart disease, and memory loss. He can help you lose weight and feel great! Interested? Check out the resources below!
