Fibre's bad for you. Fat's healthy. And five-a-day is a gimmick to make fruit and veg firms rich. Or so claims a remarkable new book
'We think we know what to eat: less red meat and more fibre, less saturated fat and more fruit and veg, right? Wrong, according to a controversial new book by obesity researcher and nutritionist Zoe Harcombe.
In The Obesity Epidemic: What Caused It? How Can We Stop It? Harcombe charts her meticulous journey of research into studies that underpin dietary advice and her myth-busting conclusions are startling.'

So does this mean I can now eat a double bacon cheeseburger in good conscience? :)
I've known a lot of lazy, fat people who smoked and drank as they pleased. In general, these people have been happy and have lived a long time.
Example: My parents had dear friends who were fat smokers who had to stop going to museums (walking that much tired them out). My parents pitied them and used them as an object lesson for me. But, my parents died 10 and 20 years ago and of their two friends, one died this past August (age 84) and the other is still alive.
Ping to read later.
Carbs are fine if they have fiber in them, you won’t eat some much of them - therefore eliminating the ‘gorging’ on carbs. That’s how they are in nature. They also are unbleached.
Heavens NO!!! You must first remove the buns.
Yes, but without the bun.
Sounds like the UK version of Atkins. Wonder when that man will ever posthumously win the Nobel Prize in Medicine? He was a genius.
There are so many variables in individual people, mostly based on genetics, that it is difficult to make generalizations about diet. The old adage of “whatever works for you” is appropriate.
Yes, but make sure you get that death-enhancing lettuce out of there first.
no bread, no grains, no fruit, no sugar.
as much as I want of everything else.
TWO MEALS A DAY!!!!! Lunch and dinner and late snack.
Rarely drink soda or eat chips.
Made homemade pea soup yesterday. The ham was a fresh ham...ohhhhhh....sooooo tasty. Great soup!! I did good!!
P.S. Can't afford steak!!
Sounds like theyre prepping the RATS who will be on a steady diet of CROW in 24 hours.
I suspect that if you could dig down you would find that much of the current advice on what we should eat comes from radical animal rights advocates.
Minus the bun. Well, and probably minus the fake cheese.
I went on the Adkins diet and IT WORKS.
I went off of it and started gaining again.
It’s time for me to embrace steak and eggs again.
Trace Adkins has a diet?
I did it for years, and as long as I stayed on it faithfully either lost or remained steady (and my doctor loved my HDL/LDL ratios. Unfortunately it gets extremely boring (at least it did for me) especially in our culture where you are constantly bombarded by the complete opposite.
So Woody Allen was right in Sleeper after all.
