This got published a day ago and I thought it might be of interest. It is always good to have a picture to see hey not just blowing smoke.
There are so many reasons I am a low carb high fat advocate. And the article has links to a lot of good people and resources. There is also a part two link at the bottom with all of what I wrote.
But I will boil it down to two or three simple things: carbs make many people hungry. They spike insulin production which then causes food to be stored as fat. As long as they are present your body will not tend to burn your stored fat as fuel because it has carbs to burn.
So lets see what I just wrote: for many carbs make you hungry. They tend to have food you eat stored as fat. If you eat them you aren't likely to burn your fat.
They are the perfect, PERFECT, way for most not only humans but mammals to become overweight and stay overweight. How do we 'fatten up' livestock? We feed them grains.
Now people will have different amounts of carbs their body can handle and that allows them to get and stay healthy. That is absolutely true. But I truly believe 8 out of 10 people on 3FC would benefit from focusing on carb reduction and then going from there. And upping the good fat.
Will everyone succeed on low carb high fat? No. But not everyone will succeed on any approach. I choose low carb because of the science and the success stories I found. No other approach, to me, seemed to even come close in terms of having the science background this did.
Anyhow good luck to everyone and I hope you enjoyed the story and links.
