I am a fan of Dr Robert Atkins. He showed people how to lose weight and emphasised that the problem with modern diets is that we consume too much carbohydrate. He had argued for decades (until he died after slipping onto the pavement on an icy New York St) that low fat diets miss the point. The following adds to the evidence that he is right. There is earlier evidence as well see Taubes.
Enjoy your bacon and eggs for breakfast but avoid plain white bread and high GI breakfast cereals. Don’t eat margarine as it contains truely dangerous transfats. For your evening meal get stuck into, for example, a big steak with piles of vegies and salads but easy on the spuds and no high carb deserts. Lots of fish with fish oil supplements (if necessary) are good. If you want to snack eat nuts like macadamias or moderate quantities of cheeses, olives and, of course, veggies.
And tell Rosemary Stanton and other supporters of high carb eating to front with the evidence not just alarmist claims. Its is deceit they are pushing motivated by the propaganda of the grain-producing food industry. Even the recent CSIRO diet broadly endorses Atkins for his emphasis on cutting the carbs. It places more emphasis on proteins however.
