Cholesterol and Big Fat Lies

Fear of Fat & Cholesterol worth billions

What I’ve learned living the low-carb life (and now almost 50 lbs down) – is that the “fear” people have when it comes to fatty foods.

Like we’ve all been programmed (regular citizens all the way up to “knowledgeable” physicians) to believe that the saturated fats, and delicious, rich foods like bacon, eggs and juicy steaks are our problem – and that we should have dry, disgusting, tasteless “fat-free” food to live a healthy, thin life.

Well – the problem really lies in a high-carb, high blood sugar diet – and much of the “research” that led to these dramatic conclusions was flawed (or was due to confirmation bias – they wanted to “prove” something so badly, that they ignored the data that didn’t support their claims).

I mean eating saturated fats in accordance with a low-carb diet actually helps you lose weight faster!

29 Billion reasons to lie about cholesterol

Another book that came out a couple years ago is $29 billion reasons to lie about cholesterol.

A little bit of a conspiracy concept that keeping people sick just helps the health care industry thrive, author Justin Smith is also making a documentary about it. Here’s a teaser of the film that is expected to be released sometime this year:

Yup, I bet if I go on her website and search for ‘beef’, I won’t find 160+ recipes or anything. Which would make for nearly 140 options more than those for cheesecake, or about 120 more than biscuits. 🙂

Damn, southern food is still awesome. I’d die a happy woman if my last meal were southern… and full of gravy.

Yes, and I’m sure they are all covered with gravy full of flour, a giant side of potatoes and/or rice, followed by cheesecake. 🙂 [quote comment=”213508″]Yup, I bet if I go on her website and search for ‘beef’, I won’t find 160+ recipes or anything.

Paula Deen has Type 2 Diabetes. Same Paula Deen who fries everything including cheesecake– even already fried items– in butter or an abyss of oil.

There’s no point to my announcement. I just wanted to make it.

Besides, damn it, she’s happy as hell.

If she fried things like meat instead of cheesecake I bet her diabetes woul disappear. Paula needs to cut out the biscuits and dumplings :)[quote comment=”213490″]Paula Deen has Type 2 Diabetes.

I saw a similar video:

But one thing I think they both left out is the differences in morbidity and mortality rates among different ethnic and racial groups. People whose ancestors were primarily European, sub-Saharan African, and Amerindian respectively will NOT share identical physiological responses to the same diets. One of the most obvious examples is lactose tolerance.

Everyone seems to want to tiptoe around this issue, maybe because it’s impolite (or threatens to violate a leftest tenet that “race is just a social construct”), but it’s foolish to ignore it.
