TIME: Eat Butter. Scientists Labeled Fat the Enemy. Why They Were Wrong.
DIET DOCTOR ^ | 06/20/2014

Posted on 06/20/2014 11:12:27 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

TIME-600x800

Isn’t it pretty, the cover of the latest issue of TIME?

The paradigm shift continues and the outdated fear of fat is on its way out faster and faster.

You’d wish that some old-school fat phobics subscribed to the magazine. Unfortunately, I think this is hoping for too much, so I just emailed the cover to some of them.

Some people will still spread low-fat margarine on their bread as long as they live, as an old habit. But most people will soon realize that not only does it taste bad, but it’s also completely unnecessary.

Consider passing this on to your friends!

I long ago stopped reading articles on what’s good for you and what’s bad. Take eggs for example, they were good, then bad, then good, then they’d kill you. Then you shouldn’t live without them. The same with fats, trans-fats and dozens of other things. First they’d be miracles then poison. Just eat moderately and ignore the food articles.

I have a sister in law and a mother in law, everything all the time has to be fat-free. It drives me up a wall. My problem is not fat, it’s carbs! Fat Free=more sugar which means more carbs! Plus fat-free tastes like CRAP!

I am MUCH healthier now that I cut the carbs to a minimum and went to meat. Trim as a beanpole.

My grandparents ate eggs and bacon or ham every morning except Sunday, when they’d have steak and eggs. They only lived into their 90s. The secret, of course, was that they worked outdoors until their late 80s.

Those who sit all day probably can eat anything, because they will have a short life anyway.

I’ve been using Smart Balance spread since my heart attack. I can’t distinguish the flavor from real butter.

Everyone should try to find a diet and lifestyle that works for them. Good food and exercise works for everyone.

Only the lazy and the ignorant allow themselves to waddle around with a big belly or a toilet-busting butt. Learn how to take care of yourself!!

With the exception of the now accepted marijuanna. Notice how no one says a word about smoke, second hand smoke, or the other unhealthy effects of smoking pot? Tobacco/ bad, dope = good. What an upside world we live in!

The human body requires good, healthy fats. Avocados, olive oil, coconut oil, nuts & seeds, good butter, whole RAW milk. It's required for hormone production and necessary for proper brain function.

That fake, processed trans fat stuff (vegetable oil, canola (or "rapeseed") oil, margarine, etc.) that was supposed to be better for you is the worst thing you can eat. Then throw a ton of sugar on top of it and see what you get.

The danger is not fat... it's metabolic disorders brought on by all this processed crap in our diets.

Yes, but make sure it is GOOD butter from grass-fed cows. Start using Irish Kerrygold butter and you will never want to eat anything else.

GrannyBuckeye is 99 years old. She has eaten gluten, butter, bacon, eggs, and whole milk her entire life.

Never forget that science is an observation. You know what they say about the eye of the beholder.

The universe is contracting. The universe is expanding.

And so on.

Salt does not cause high blood pressure, it is an effect. High blood pressure is regulated by the adrenal gland.

Ignoring nutrition articles is difficult because there are so many of them. YOu can find some experts that agree with you and others that disagree.

Decades ago, I went to a nutritionist who advised plenty of red meat for me, tho she discouraged other clients from eating it. No oils, but a pat of butter a day and four eggs/week are good. Fish, baked potatoes and lightly steamed greens are OK. Avoid salt, sugar, honey, forget chicken and bread and don’t eat grains except oatmeal. Every time I go back on this diet, my health bounces back; if I ignore it, my energy level begins to decline, so she was apparently correct. And totally in agreement with this latest fad.

I really love sugar, but the rest of it is easy to follow.

Best wishes for finding what works really well for you:)

That’s too funny. I’ve been married 22 years. The first time I cooked for my husband, he asked, “What the hell is in these mash potatoes?! I’ve never had mashed potatoes this good.”

“Potatoes, milk, butter, and salt,” I said.

“Don’t ever cook my food with margarine,” he said.

“Hadn’t planned to, darlin’.”

“Best wishes for finding what works really well for you:)”

Plenty of greens, yogurt, fruit, meat, 3 eggs a day with three bacon strips. Plenty of chocolate. But I work out five days a week. For my size and weight I’m probably the fittest looking sixty-year-old you’ll meet. I can, under certain bad lighting conditions, see all my abs.

I pat all the grease out of food. I avoid pizza like the black plague. I’ll buy a salad if I have to eat out. But I want meat in it and blue cheese. As I said, eat in moderation. (Oh, alcohol feels like I ate ground glass, so that helps with the svelteness.)

Add a dollop of sour cream to give them more flavor.

“Salt does not cause high blood pressure, it is an effect. High blood pressure is regulated by the adrenal gland.”

And my adrenal glands go into overdrive when someone from the High Plains of Idiocracy takes away either my salt or my butter.

Hey, that’s a great diet. Don’t know about the bacon, but I had grass-fed roast pork for lunch yesterday at the uberhealthy food co-op in Moscow, ID, where I was visiting a friend. I go to the gym 3x/wk, work out on the same equipment we saw Putin using in the funny video comparison with Obma’s workout going around the Web last week. My abs are missing and still lost, tho I’m working on them. All in all, I’m in excellent —even enviable—shape considering that I”m a girl and older than you:)

Maybe the abs need 5 gym visits/wk to respond? Give me another year and we’ll compare notes. Meanwhile, I get to wear “control” undies and you probably don’t:)

Why They Were Wrong.

It all comes down to government crony capitalism, corruption, George McGovern Commision, and Ancel Keys.

Before it is over, the progressives will have caused more pain and killed more than Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot combined.

I think nature intended for women to have a little softness in the middle. The Madonna look is...not attractive. It’s almost impossible for women to have visible abs. The thing that allows it is testosterone.

Incidentally, the Rubenesqe woman was greatly appreciated until around WW1. Then fashion magazines came into being. Paris dress makers were setting the style and the style they wanted didn’t look good on a full-figured woman. So, they photographed young boys wearing their gowns. This desire for thin women is solely a western fetish. If you show silhouettes of women to tribes who have never seen TV or magazines they always pick the fuller-figured women as attractive.

Exercise regularily, you can eat whatever you want.

Natural of course.

Health is about reducing/eliminating free-radicals, oxidation etc.

I developed a huge hatred of oleo when as a child, I could taste the oleo in my mother’s baked goods. It was a distinctly worse taste than butter...and my mother’s baked goods were excellent. When I was on my own, I bought butter only...no margarine. Ate eggs and other dairy products too when many were omitting those items from their diets.

I tried fat-free salad dressing once and almost got sick; it was too sweet, and it had a nasty gelatinous texture. Fat-free cream cheese is rubbery. And have you ever put fat-free half & half in your coffee? I had to once, at my MIL's house. It took about half the container to change the color of the coffee, and I still couldn't taste it in there.

It’s all about over-eating folks. That is what make speople fat. Yes certain foods that are processed and heavy on the carbs and sugar will speed the getting fat along, but if you don’t over-eat, you likely won’t get fat.
Life is too short to try and kill yourself by eating “healthy”.

Some people are salt sensitive, they should restrict salt intake. Recommending everybody going on a low salt diet is where they went wrong.
