This is a long video, done by a Stanford University Nutrition professor, but well worth your time. If you're interested in health, diet studies, and whether the advice of the past 30 years is working for Americans, watch this.
Now this guy is a life-long vegetarian, but after his investigations, he had to admit that, "the low-fat thing clearly isn't working." We Americans have been told for decades that, to lose weight, we must cut fat from our diets, and exercise.
Except, that doesn't work. ESPECIALLY if you're insulin resistant.
American is ballooning in obesity. Diabetes is sky-rocketing. All this has occurred particularly in the past 30 years, just at the time when we've been told to boost carbohydrates in our diets. This professor is not promoting Adkins per se, but he is questioning the conventional wisdom we've all been fed.
