Smell that? That’s the smell of victory… and it smells like steak!
After years of urging people to nibble on bunny chow to stay thin, the mainstream is starting to come around. Now, some of the leading minds in the world of nutrition say it’s not fat you need to worry about — it’s the carbs.
And if you’ve been taking my advice, that means you’re already one step ahead of all those "leading minds." Just listen to them now — they sound like they’re practically reading my newsletter out loud:
"Fat is not the problem," Dr. Walter Willett, chairman of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, told the Los Angeles Times. "If Americans could eliminate sugary beverages, potatoes, white bread, pasta, white rice and sugary snacks, we would wipe out almost all the problems we have with weight and diabetes and other metabolic diseases."
And if you think that sounds like me, you should check this next bit out:
"The country’s big low-fat message backfired," Dr. Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health, told the paper. "The overemphasis on reducing fat caused the consumption of carbohydrates and sugar in our diets to soar. That shift may be linked to the biggest health problems in America today."
Spoken like true Douglass believers — and they weren’t alone. Experts from Tufts, Duke and UC Davis also chimed in to confirm the ultimate truth: Carbs will kill you.
Naturally, there are still a few sourpusses who won’t join the party — and of course, they’re the ones who make the rules.
Like Joanne Slavin, a nutrition professor who sat on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee. That’s the committee that helped concoct the awful new food pyramid I warned you about last year, which will urge more grains and greens and less healthy animal fat.
She claims the committee looked at the research on carbs and disease and found no link.
That only tells me they weren’t really looking — because studies have confirmed again and again that a low-carb diet will help you lose weight and avoid diabetes and heart disease.
And it will completely tame those conditions if you already have them.
Ready to get started? Of course you are — and you’re not a dietary rebel for trying it anymore.
You’ve got Harvard in your corner now.
