Hello all!

Just wanted to share some articles about what is making us fat...as we all know it is CARBS!!!! New research is backing this up and it's a good step forward to try to fight obesity.

Also I'm including an article about how you crave carbs on an empty stomach. Please comment and let me know your thoughts and opinions. :D

This seems like a follow-up to an opinion article by Mark Bittman a few days ago [http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/06/26/which-diet-works/].

ITA. Why We Get Fat is definitely a must read.

Yesterday I picked up a book by Jenny Ruhl, Diet 101: The Truth About Low Carb Diets.

"Bloodsugar101.com's Jenny Ruhl explains what peer reviewed research and the experience of Successful Low Carb Dieters can tell us about: * How Low Carb Diets Repair Unhealthy High Normal Blood Sugars * How Low Carb Diets Achieve Weight Loss * The Strengths and Weaknesses of the Diet as Revealed by Research * The Facts that Debunk Exaggerated Claims Pro and Anti Low Carb Di...more"

I'm enjoying her 'just the facts' approach. Very good so far.

Yes, it appears to be based on the same study. After doing this diet, it makes me wonder why others don't see that eating high carbs and low fat is not gonna help to lose weight easily...maybe if I was running a marathon, yes high carbs. Otherwise, I like that I'm dropping the weight!
