thanks ccc ,,this is a great article!!!

my dr. ..... very close to my age ....keeps asking me my diet,,, I say high protein and low carb
he shakes his head ...my bloodwork is much better than his .....he asks specifically how much red meat I consume,,,, and says he needs to change his way of thinking ..


here's a paragraph from the article


More than two-thirds of the fat in a porterhouse steak, for instance, will definitively improve your cholesterol profile (at least in comparison with the baked potato next to it); it's true that the remainder will raise your L.D.L., the bad stuff, but it will also boost your H.D.L. The same is true for lard. If you work out the numbers, you come to the surreal conclusion that you can eat lard straight from the can and conceivably reduce your risk of heart disease

I certainly agree. I've been low carb, high fat and protein for 4 months and my lab numbers improved almost immediately. I've lost some weight and feel good on it. It not only improves cholesterol, and fatty liver, but also helps symptoms of GERD.

Glad to hear that, gentlearts!!!!!!!!

MBM, if you liked that article you will love Dr. Barry Groves, he's been fighting the lowfat high carb myths for years. It's a lot of reading but grab a drumstick and enjoy.......don't miss out on the cholesterol myth, either.

After you read the cholesterol myth, chase down Mrs. MBM and have your way with her

The majority of carbs I get nowadays comes from fruit, potatoes and pasta/noodles. I limit my wheat and added sugar, while I largely avoid rice, corn, and oats, which I never cared for much anyway.

While fats are better for us than we thought, you still have to make sure you're getting a good balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Fish are by far the best sources, while most vegetable oils should be used sparingly if at all.

I'm doing my part! Today, I ate an avocado, a piece of blue cheese and had some blackberries with heavy cream.
