I started with the best of intentions and not nearly enough knowledge. As I'm that weird 'kid' that loves reading non fiction and books that resemble text books I've spent plenty of time at the library and plenty online researching what I really should be eating.
I was never a fan of low fat or reduced fat anything, and the more I dug the more I found to validate my thoughts. I once saw in a rather... humorous documentary that presented another view of the facts while poking fun at Supersize me which always seemed a bit dramatic, amzn.to/17YLRdL
Yep, I've looked a lot of this stuff up and most of it was based in real fact The half truths that have been provided to push commodities, how fat can actually be healthy for us. After eating what is considered "healthy" today, low fat, lean meats, etc for months and seeing no movement I've changed how I eat as other parts of my diet have evolved and now I have fat with every meal. And we're not talking about vegetable which is nothing more than soybean oil with a pretty name, we're talking able real.. good... fat. Eggs at breakfast, fried in butter from grass fed cows, bacon, chicken with the skin on, red meat with plenty of fat for flavor.
I feel amazing. I did the math since I've had so much else going on that a food log has been out of the question, my calories are actually less, I'm not hungry all the time. I've lost weight and my BMI has improved. I'm looking forward to see how well this continues to improve.
This I'm nuts? watch the movie and look the info up for your self.
