The Obesity Epidemic

This article is dynamite. As we all suspected, counting calories does not work. Everyone who has done a calorie-controlled diet ends up after a while heavier than before starting. This article explains the science behind that fact. It then goes on to explain that cholestrol in food does NOT go into your blood (again, as we all suspected). It summarises basically by saying: take exercise, avoid all factory-processed oils & fats, avoid carbs (sugar, rice, bread etc), eat fresh foods such as meat and fish. It's a long article, with lots of references to relevant studies. But if you value your health, or just want to lose weight, it's worth reading all the way through. And yes, I've just ordered the book 'The Obesity Epidemic'!
