Congratulations to all of us who made it through yet another year and are ready to face 2011 head-on! I know I am!
That being said I am glad to be back where I belong, blogging about the dangers inherent in carbs and to continue my fight against 'The Medical Establishment's' continued grotesque dissemination of the incorrect way to eat!
They should all be ashamed of themselves!
They are still supporting and disseminating the incorrect dietary information (that is, low fat, low cholesterol) which puts us at great risk for obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and of course cancer!
THIS HAS TO STOP!
This past year has seen the creation of the 'Coalition for a Healthy Nation.' This organization is devoted to exposing the truth behind the current dietary regulations. What is this truth? The truth is that there is no sound scientific criteria for the current recommendation of low fat, low cholesterol diets in regards to the treatment of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer.
2 members of this phenomenal organization (Adele H. Hite M.A.T.and Pamela A. Schoenfeld R.D.) published in the Journal Nutrition a premier paper entitled “In the face of contradictory evidence: Report of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans Committee" in the journal Nutrition, by Hite, A, et al.

This is obviously a step in the right direction!
While we are seeing more physicians and dietitian coming to the understanding of the correct way to eat, there is still a preponderance of laypersons who understand the correct way to eat; as a medical professional, I am truly embarrassed by that fact.
The first non-medical individual who comes to mind is Jimmy Moore who understands the correct way to eat on such a profound level, sometimes I think he knows more than me. OK, so maybe he does but Shhhhh, dont tell him I said that :-)
Then there's my good friend JayCee from South Africa who continually sends me excellent articles on the fallacies of low fat, low cholesterol and awesome biochemical insights as well.
As an aside I recently had the privilege to be interviewed by Dr. Robert K. Su M.D. for his wonderful podcasts which can be heard at his website Carbohydrates Can Kill; I love that title because it is so so true!

One last comment; alot of people think that when I explain the correct way to eat that this is my opinion, theory, supposition or belief.
This is not true!
The correct way to eat is just that; the correct way to eat. Just because someone doesn't want to 'believe' that eating more fat, cholesterol and protein is the correct way to eat does not make it false. The truth is just that, the truth. Hey, I didn't create the biochemistry behind why we need to eat the way we need to eat. Remember, beliefs can be right or wrong, the facts just are.
So if you're still grappling with accepting that eating more fat/cholesterol/protein is safe; get over it already. There are excellent books on the market from Atkins, to the Eades (Protein Power); Gary Taubes Good Calories, Bad Calories and a whole host of other books explaining the correct way to eat.
Don't waste your time (or mine) telling yourself I'm crazy because that is what I believe. Remember, I don't believe anything. Quick question: How many people does it take to believe in something that's not true or real before it becomes real; millions of children believe in Santa Clause, unicorns and dragons...to date I have yet to see any of these famous people or animals.
As an aside, I would think unicorns are low carb (from the Equus or horse family?) and I wonder how they taste; I'm thinking they probably taste gamey, more like deer maybe...I dunno, maybe with a little BBQ sauce...but then of course I would think unicorns would be on like an endangered species list and we couldn't hunt them; and then there's the whole imagery of shooting the unicorn not knowing little Suzy or Billy were watching me and that they had to travel through some worm hole in their great aunts bedroom closet to finally actually see a unicorn first hand and then I shoot the darn thing right in front of them, and then I envisage all the unicorns in unicorn land trampling me; but then I think unicorns are supposed to be lovable creatures and all that...ahhh crap, was that a run on sentence or what....
As far as dragons being low carb, I would hazard a guess yes, but then how do you kill a dragon? I'm pretty sure you just cant kill a dragon you have to slay it; and it has to be done with a knight or something like that. Of course, you'd have all of these taxes put on dragon meat; the slaying tax, the knight tax, the "I-had-to-traverse-a-closet-worm-hole-tax" and blah, blah, blah.
Would dragons and unicorns be protected by PETA?
Ohhh, the things that keep me up at night.....
OK, I really went tangential on that one! Hey, cut me some slack, it's been awhile since I blogged :-)
Once again, Happy New Year to all!
Glad to be back!
