For decades Dr. Berry recommended the American Heart Association’s high-fiber, whole-grain–rich diet to his patients, only to find his own advice was enlarging his belly and decreasing his health.

His knees ached and he was on the path to developing metabolic syndrome, the very condition this “evidence-based” diet was supposed to prevent.

Motivated to reclaim his health, two years ago Dr. Berry flipped the scripts and ate the opposite of how his medical colleagues suggested: low-carb, high fat and protein.

His health, and life, has improved dramatically.
