I saw this word used here and it got me to thinking. Low carb is now what low fat was to the eighties and nineties. Remember when fat free cookies came out? I go to Trader Joes to shop and there is a whole section of low carb food. You can get low carb spaghetti, low carb beer, low carb candy! I am just wondering what the backlash will be 10 years from now.
It seemed in the eighties that we could have as much sugar as we wanted, as long as we ditched the fat. The result was rampant obesity. Now it is the opposite. I see that some of these Frankenfoods now have twice the fat of the regular versions! So what, in 10 years are we going to experience rampant heart disease?
I think our society is looking for a magic bullet. I myself have tried many different diets looking for that miracle. It occurs to me that we have tried to gold plate the real magic bullet: whole, unprocessed, ungenetically modified, unmanipulated food.
I am very appreciative of the tone the SBD sets. Dr. A doesn't let us rely on these gold plated magic bullet foods- these
Frankenfoods! It is reassuring to know that we won't be part of the backlash statistics 10 years from now!
