Comments on Weight of the Evidence: What If Saturated Fat Is Not the Problem?

People *are* listening to their bodies, and look at what has happened...skyrocketing obesity and chronic diseases. When we eat sugars and starches in abundance (and most people do), our bodies tell us to eat more, more, more. When we eat enough fat *and little starch or sugar*, our bodies tell us when to stop.

Americans' views of Asian and Mediterranean diets are based on myth, not reality. Both diets include ample animal foods and fat and are not as heavy on carbs as usually presented. And the Americanized versions are nothing like those consumed by people in those regions.

a) except the evidence doesn't show this

b) this is what people say when they want to appear reasoned, but it doesn't in fact mean anything

c) over the last decades, the level of saturated fat in the typical Japanese diet has skyrocketed. At the same time, heart attack and stroke deaths have fallen precipitously.

Hello:

While some of the situations you suggest may be true for people with a tendency towards insulin resistance and/or polycystic ovarian disorders... wouldn't it seem logical:

a) that the OVERALL likely culprit in problems with diet involve excessive caloric intake,

b) that moderate consumption of a variety of different food types would be moderately healthy for most people,

and

c) the "Japanese" style diet (mostly carbohydrates, but limited quantities) has ample evidence that it is very healthy for that population.

To me, I think any reasonably healthy diet probably can work for people if they listen to how their food makes them feel. It could be high carb or low carb, high fat or low fat, high protein or low protein... if people would listen to their bodies.

In my own diet, I tend to mostly vegetarian (turkey or chicken once or twice a week) and as low in fat as I can because it seems to feel best to my body. Again, I am not suggesting my diet is the "right" diet for anyone else. I am only thinking that it would be LIKELY that different diets could work very well for different people.

My ex-father-in-law used to eat a pound of bacon along with lots of bread.

Great post as usual Regina. It's ironic that carbohydrates actually signal the liver to pump more saturated fat into the blood. One step backwards and then two more steps backwards...seems about typical of mainstream nutrition recommendations.

I definitely thing that carbs like baked goods and potatoes are our problem.

The book Good Calories, Bad Calories, Good Calories, Bad Calories, does an excellent job of showing what research (and lack of research) got us to our current state of recommendations. I think it's a must read for anyone that tries to eat healthy.

No one ever did want to eat a pound of bacon.

Either this is very subtle irony, or you and me live in perpendicular universes.



Hmmm common sense, what a novel idea.
