HIGH FAT DIETS SHOULD BE BANNED, AS WELL AS SUGAR AND OVEREATING OF STARCH.
There is a reason why lay people believe that there is a thin line between brilliance and insanity, or that the intellectually gifted are lacking in social skills. You are not helping your cause. And with that, I plan to go back to watching "Outlander," which makes its premier tonight.

We could go on, tit for tat, but you have missed the purpose of this site. It is not for the "scientists" among us, rather for the support and camaraderie we each find to help us in our respective journeys, whichever path we take. I have found this to be as important as the science, in my own study, n=1. I feel this tirade of yours has driven a wedge between you and the community, and I respectfully ask you to let it go.

Also: "A study last year in the Annals of Internal Medicine made one of the most convincing cases yet: Researchers found that men and women who switched to a low-carb diet lost 14 pounds after one year—eight pounds more than those who limited their fat intake instead. The high-fat group also maintained more muscle, trimmed more body fat, and increased their protein intake more than their carb-heavy counterparts. These results are promising not only because researchers looked at the diet long-term, but also because they didn’t limit how many calories the participants could eat, debunking the idea that LCHF only works as well as any other calorie-capped diet."

"Conclusions: A meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD. More data are needed to elucidate whether CVD risks are likely to be influenced by the specific nutrients used to replace saturated fat." This is from the study: Meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies evaluating the association of saturated fat with cardiovascular disease, from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Oliver, unfortunately I have to agree with everyone who has taken offense to your statements and how you delivered them. There is a lot of science supporting LCHF. I would direct you to the dietdoctor.com website. And before you attack ME, I will share (I had been hesitant until now, but feel this situation warrants it) that I AM a physician and licensed in the state of Massachusetts; Angela D. Hunt, MD. Feel free to look me up. Following the recommendations of my profession caused me to ballon up to 260 lbs. It was not until I educated myself and applied the principles of what I had learned that I saw the weight effortlessly fall away without hunger, something I have never experienced in all of my previous attempts at weight loss. And you can rest assured that in my capacity as a physician, I have arduously followed my blood chemistries. Now I plan to go back into my corner and I suggest you do so as well.
