Day 12 Atkins and an article

Thursday, August 01, 2013

thought we all deserved a little hugh jackman eye candy.

Last night wet to see Wolverine last night, and had to go to the bathroom before, during and after emoticon I have to say, going out to dinner is so much easier low carb then low fat. I had a lovely salad, fresh sauteed green bean, and prime rib. YUM. For my treat at the theater, I had a small diet dr pepper and didn't finish it. It seemed sooooo sweet.

I now plan my walks in the park so that I am never far from a restroom :P sheesh.

I was doing a little more research and found this john's hopkins study:

it shows that lc doesn't increase arterial health risk. good to know...

The more I read about the connections and influence different food lobbies have had on medical journals, the angrier I get. HFCS, hydrogenated fats, sugar...information has been surpressed or munipulated or out right fraudulent. Not sure who I believe at this point.

I think I am late to the game on this, but I am learning to grow as much of my own as I can (which isn't much at this point lol) and trying to buy local as much as I can.

    Yes! low carb IS easier than low fat, from what I've heard. I've never gone down that low fat trail. I hope you got the restaurant to slather your lovely prime rib with Bearnaise sauce! mmmm

I'm frustrated by how our dietary recommendations are manipulated, too. For a really infuriating expose, read this:


Its topic is primarily fats, and especially trans fats, but the manipulation is no different for any other food or nutritional component. This article was co-authored by a person who was *there*, in the trenches, fighting for the real information. We never got it. We're STILL not getting it. We have to be skeptical and critical and research on our own, even in the face of so-called "experts" (who, unfortunately, are still the popular majority even in professional "specialty" groups).

Despite its being unsettling, you're doing the right thing. Keep researching. Don't accept the dietary dogma at face value. Your health is in your hands - work with your doctor(s) so they know you're in the loop. Advocate for yourself, because nobody else is going to do it!

Haven't read your article yet... but I'm going there right now. Thanks for that link!

    Very good article--I agree about food lobbies. Actually the media in general. They are not the unbiased sources we need. They only "feed" us what they want us to know with their slant on it.
