Have you all been following the news on this? Articles like this:
I think the problem is people have followed sound bites, like low-fat, low-carb, high protein, etc. instead of thinking through the approach to eating. I will keep telling clients to stick to real foods, mostly vegetables, but that every one's body responds differently. I'd read years ago that the reason they thought saturated fats were bad for us was based on a study of nurses and they found that those who ate the lowest saturated fats were healthiest. But, they never looked at the fact that those who watched their saturated fats attempted to be more healthier in working out, eating better. My take away is that I'll stick w/ real food and not processed high protein/low fat/etc. stuff. I've always bought regular yogurt, milk, etc not skim. I'll eat eggs but watch the bacon. Lots of vegetables. Pay attention to how I feel.
