  1. I couldn't agree more. Sugar, processed foods and carbs are the reasons for so much obesity and heart disease. My daughter started going to medical school and through talking to the doctors there, they told me about Atkins diet and cutting out all sugar. That was a year ago, I've now lost 45 pounds and am off one of my high blood pressure meds. Eating foods high in saturated fats (animal fats) does not make you fat or clog your arteries. In fact, the body has no mechanism for turning the saturated fat you eat into stored fat. The way your body accumulates fat is from insulin turning excess glucose (sugar) into fat. Great thread.
