"I've been preaching this since long before Gary Taubes' books came out. That's because I have a colleague who studies the physiology of insulin. From what I know, Taubes is right. A quote re Dietary Incorrectness at Powerline:...Taubes disputes the connection between dietary fat and high cholesterol. He challenges the thesis that dietary fat is detrimental to our health. He rejects a balanced diet. He advocates a high-fat diet. He opposes dieting. He doesnt object to exercise, but he asserts that it makes you hungry. Its almost funny. He is the dietary equivalent of politically incorrect.

Dr Atkins was onto this years ago.
Except egg whites, of course.
>> A friend calls it the White Diet : eat nothing white
That’s racist. It should be called “the diet of color”.
Does this include rice ? Because I eat white rice about a quarter of the time, complements of a healthy Chinese takeout menu. And my b/f is Japanese besides, the skinniest, longest lived people alive.
ive been successfully doing atkins/hamptons eating for more than twenty years...i watch my carbs and excercise ....works for me....
So were cavemen (if you believe in that sort of thing). The modern Starch-based diet is a man-made construct, and our bodies are not all equipped to handle the blood suger bombs that starch deploys into our bloodstreams at every meal. Type 2 diabetics should eliminate starch from their diets.
Atkins works, and I’m eating more veggies than I used to, just that they’re different ones, called Foundation Vegetables (radishes, cukes, celery), just no bread, so, open-faced (and open-footed) bacon cheeseburgers, steak, chicken...
Cut out wheat. I discovered that I have a mild wheat allergy & cut it out a couple of months ago. Decades old issues cleared up right away, and although I’m normal-sized I lost weight for the first time since I was a teenageer.
And except chocolate cake, and chocolate chip cookies, since they’re mostly brown and dark brown. As for egg whites, they’re really clear, that is until you cook them.
Thank you! Calories in calories out concept is a joke. So is Big Govs food pyramid. I’m pretty sure the corn and grain lobby paid for that once upon a time.
This video is an hour and a half long, but totally worth the watch!
The El Salvadorans seem to be of substantial Japanese background probably having been brought here direct from Japan in the debris fields of numerous tsunamis over the millenia.
So, first of all it's genes ~ and secondly, it's guile!
Noteworthy ~ Salvadorans like to eat bean/rice sandwiches ~ on white bread. Lawyers prefer tunafish and mayo on rye.
Guess I should include the video: http://m.youtube.com/index?&desktop_uri=%2F#/watch?v=dBnniua6-oM
As we age those genes get to take over and protect us from loaves of bread, beer, and soy sauce.
Also makes shopping much easier ~ 10 minutes tops at any market on Earth!
Now, the bad news ~ you'll notice your sensitivity to wheat becoming more extreme the less of it you eat. We all eventually reach the point of worrying about where was that knifeblade, last, and recoiling in horror upon learning somebody cooked pancakes on the part of the grill our fried egg is now.
I’m Russian. It’s in the genes. My whole family lived into their 90’s.
