I read that too on the weekend and agree wholeheartedly with you. I'm a big coconut oil, butter user and love drizzling olive oil on my veges.

Time magazine had a similar cover story a few weeks back.

We need to ask ourselves - artificial or processed food is cheaper to make than natural food, and it has a longer shelf life and is therefore more profitable for the manufacturer and supermarket. Common sense tells me that it isn't as good for me.
I try not to eat any food with numbers in it. Which is just about everything in the supermarket. It is hard to live like this, but as I would like to live to be 80 without succumbing to cancer or needing a hip replacement, I have decided it is worthwhile. There are things available in the supermarket, it just takes awhile to get to know the brands and types of food that are okay. It is also expensive to eat this way, for the reasons as above. Which is one reason we have moved to the country to grow our own food and try to keep away from the nasties. I just have to try not to think about what the farmer used to put on the paddock that I am now growing my veges in! But I have to start somewhere!

Fantastic information in both of those two links Organix.
In the first one it talks of carb intolerance and why some people can eat high carbs levels and not put on weight while others do,when i was in my 30's each year we would have a four month period of shearing 7days a week, if i had both morning and afternoon teas plus lunch i would put on weight even though we would be burning 6000 calories per day,all the while the other guys would be getting thinner by the day,i was still carrying 20kg to much in those days but at least i kept it down by eating twice a day.

When health, business and politics collude :( A good watch, thanks.

Doesn't it fill you with confidence when our politicians move towards taxation or other methods to drove the people towards 'healthy' food choices :rolleyes:

Went into my local chemist today do my weekly weigh in and the chemist asked from behind his counter if i was happy with what the scales showed,ended up chatting about my low carb/high fat diet to which he was quite supportive of,he said there's a growing awareness of that the current thinking is wrong.

My mother had high cholesterol for years, she was on a low cholesterol diet and it went up. If the body does not get it from food it makes its own. My father ate dripping on toast, loved his fry ups and had exceptionally low cholesterol.
