“We’re from the government. We’re here to help.”
Very interesting article on how we’ve been lied to for decades about what to eat.
Several good links and quotes including this regarding the effects of following government low-fat/high-carb diet guidelines:
In a recent editorial appearing in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, researcher Zoe Harcombe from the University of the West of Scotland explains that obesity rates among British men and women rose from 2.7 percent in 1972 to 23 percent and 26 percent, respectively, by 1999.
The stats back him up. Since the US government first published a set of national nutrition guidelines in 1980, rates of obesity and related diseases like diabetes have more than doubled. “Childhood diabetes was basically unheard of, and now it’s an epidemic,” Lustig said.
Eat meat, full-fat dairy, vegetables, some fruit, and drink plenty of water. Get some moderate-to-strenuous exercise everyday (starting slow and working your way up), especially if your job has you sitting most of the time. Get enough sleep so you feel rested and ready when you wake up.
