Fat does not make you fat and high carbohydrate based eating is bad for you.
Or if we put it in the scientists own words;
“Global dietary guidelines should be reconsidered in light of these findings.”
Insert my totally shocked and disbelieving facial expression right here!
I never realized that the scientific community moves at the speed of government, but apparently they do.
The number of reports, findings and actual real-life results have been saying that it’s not fats that are killing people, its high carb diets that are doing it for a long time.
I guess this is official vindication for every one of the pioneers of change that have been saying, LOW CARB, LOW CARB, LOW CARB.
And where did this admission come from? Not a fake news or slanted source, but from The Lancet.
You can click The Lancet to see the abstract of the report. I’ll sum it up for you though.
Low Carb Diets Are Good
High carbohydrate intake is associated to a higher risk of total mortality.
Why? Aren’t vegetables carbs?
Yes vegetables are carbs but the aren’t refined, processed, bleached and beaten to death. They are full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibre.
Sadly, when fats got blamed for cardiovascular disease, we were told by the experts to eat more grains. Grains are also carbohydrates and in their purest form also have fiber, vitamins and minerals but we don’t eat them in their purest form.
The western diets have reduced whole grains to non-nutrient based food like substances.
We eat bread, crackers, pasta, over processed foods. Cereals, white flour, white rice. Take all the real nutrients out of whole grains and you are left with little more than sugar.
Fat gets off the hook to some degree in the report as well with the finding that total fat and types of fat were not associated to cardiovascular disease.
I’m not one to gloat, but to all the doctors, , nutritionists, government agencies and paid for profit scientists that screwed over a couple of generations of people, “TOLD YOU SO”!!!
I’m sure this finding is going to try to be debunked by the sugar industry, the cereal producers, bread bakers and of course doctors who have no interest in change.
LOW CARB – HIGH FAT
OK, before you go and get all freaky on fat filled foods eliminating all carbs remember the rules of nutrition and health.
- Garbage in, garbage out.
- You are what you eat.
- You can’t out exercise a bad diet.
- Not all calories are equal.
Sensible eating is the way to go.
The quality of your food is important.
Funny how yesterday I wrote here about Paleo Diet facts and the same day, a few hours later, this study was released which is basically saying, a Paleo Diet is a good nutrition plan.
Joni is one of our #FitFriends who used a low carb nutrition plan that included healthy fats and look at the results that she achieved!
She ate great food that was straight forward and tastes great. Joni followed a simple plan that is systematic in its approach to getting real weight loss results and she looks amazing!
She followed the Metabolism Reset Plan, used our Facebook group for incredible support and made her health a priority. She knows how important it is to take care of herself so she can better take care of her family.
You can get this result too when you decide to join our September session of the Metabolism Reset Plan.
