Ragnor: the 50 year old incorrect conventional wisdom around nutrition
I saw a graph once of obesity rates overlaid over the last 50 years or so and it was a crack up. At the time the 'low fat' mantra was introduced it went up and has stayed up since then. I really wish I could find it again, many of our parents are from that era.
A bowl of sugar is 99.9% fat free and that's about what's in every single 'diet' food etc that fat people force themselves to eat. Nearly every fat free alternative is highly processed and your body/stomach etc doesn't have to work much to convert it all to energy. Queue diabetes and obesity, as well as people eating, feeling good and then feeling hungry an hour later as well.
