American nutritionist and researcher known for her unconventional positions on the role saturated fats play in diet and health. She promoted skepticism towards the consensus in the scientific and medical communities that diets high in saturated fats can contribute to development of heart disease, while she advocated for a diet based on whole foods and rich in certain saturated fats.

Dr Enig's work as a researcher, health advocate and author has been internationally acclaimed, and she was a frequent speaker on nutrition and lipid biochemistry. Along with Sally Fallon, Enig co-founded the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) in 1999. Enig died of a stroke at the age of 83 on 8 September 2014.
