Fat is a friend in obesity battle, says N.C. doctor

Clipboard in hand, Dr. Eric Westman strides into the office to see his patients. All of them are overweight. Many of them are diabetic and have high blood pressure or other weight-related ailments. He scans a list of foods they eat and doesn't bat an eye at their consumption of eggs, sausage and bacon, coffee with heavy cream or pork rinds. He doesn't require them to exercise. He tells one: "Fat is your friend."
