Dr. Sears Comments:

Dr. Barry Sears
All very good points, until he got to point about adding fat to the coffee.  Saturated fats are pro-inflammatory compounds and will antagonize the benefits of the polyphenols.

    I’m new to the Mediterranean Zone. Is it permissible to switch from regular half and half to fat-free half and half as long as I do it in moderation? I realize the fat-free version has a small amount of sugar. However, I drink only two cups of coffee in the morning. Then, I switch to tea (mostly green tea).

  2. TRM

    He actually agrees with Dr Sears on the polyphenol reduction from adding fat “Even so, his best advice is to keep it simple. “Things like cream and milk actually lower the amount of polyphenols,” he says.”. That is similar to the effect of adding milk or cream to green tea.
