FWIW I agree with Donovan. Atkins and his low carb hoopla was the
culprit that stood on the roof tops yelling we are all on the insulin
sensitive roller coaster and to eat greasy crap food and feel more full
sans the spikes. While eating more fat did make some people feel
fuller and thus lose some weight, it was poor eating. If was also piss
poor eating for anyone doing sports.
Eat the double whopper but throw away the roll? The insulin arguments
makes for good reading but it just not true for the majority of people.
And if you eat a balanced meal with all three there is even less if any
of any spike.
This whole thought that if one eats something sweet they will turn in
crazed zombies eating 10 snickers to ease craving is kaka.
Sorry Mark but you are touting Atkins and not nutrition.
Furthermore, after eating the apple I'd probably be
hungry again in a couple of hours.
I'd disagree again.
Then go ahead and cite some of it.
Published research, please. Or at least something that cites published
I'd like to see this also.
It's a clue that you really want to infer causality, even though you
have no basis for doing so. They don't just get cheap carbs. They
large amounts of cheap, fatty meat as well.
Sad but true. Where does the notion come from that fat is expensive?
Those evil fats like cottonseed and that ilk are dirt cheap taste good
and why the lower socio have ready access.
Here's a question for you: if you stop eating carbs, you still need
glycogen. How does the glycogen you use get replenished if you are on
a very low carb diet ?
Amen! And I'll repost
which I think does a good job.
The Kenyans and Ethiopians follow a diet not unlike the USDA food
pyramid. It doesn't make them fat. But then, they don't consume
high fructose corn syrup.
But they don't consume much of anything, do they? Comparing the
The distance runners obviously consume quite a lot of *something* to
maintain a caloric balance. Not everyone in Kenya and Ethiopia is
starving. Even the people with access to grains aren't getting fat.
To quote from the above web page.
"Perhaps the most decorated distance runners in the world, however, are
the Kalenjin (Kenyan) runners who reportedly won a staggering 40% of all
major international middle- and long-distance competitions from
1987-1997.6 Interestingly, Kalenjin runners have a carbohydrate
composition that tower over their competition with measurements
reporting 75+% or 10.4 grams carbohydrate per kg of body mass, which
may lead one to argue that running success and carbohydrate intake are
Show me a fat Kenyan.
According to one source who was arguing the case for Atkins.
I think Mark is carrying the torch for the deceased Atkins. He is dead
and so is his fad diet. In his lkast years ATkins and still the estate
turned into food whores pushing their food. It's all about money either
from the book or ther meals. I think is called $greed$$.
I don't believe that's true. Most people don't even read
nutrition labels. Even if they did, the information is too
complex for the average person. As I pointed out earlier, even
I agree in part Mark, especially with the kids. I don't know if it is a
complexity issue but a knowledge issue. This is why I keep saying that
teaching nutrition in schools is almost as important as the 3r's. If we
don't educate the kids we/they will continue to get obese.
There are people who are considerably more knowledgeable than both of
disagree on this topic. Questions like "what caused the obesity

All the unbiased scientists say it's TOO MANY calories. It's not just
too many carbs. Those correlation papers are BS! We acl all twistnumers

Actually, that's not true. Vast majority of people do lose weight
on low-carb, kind of magically.
It's not magic at all. Eating more fat does make you feel fuller. It's
also poor diet from a health perspective. God help you if you want to
exercise on a low carb diet.
This is simply not correct. There is not at this stage any known
program that produces good long term outcomes in the vast majority of
The studies once again show that these fad diets do not hold and this

It's fad diet and is shitting the bed like all fad diets and it's not a
