New Study Shows Heart Disease Linked To Carbs Not Fat

New study shows that heart disease is linked to carbohydrates and not fat. The new study shows that increasing saturated fat 2x does not increase saturated fat in the blood. The study found the opposite, the intake of carbs were connected to fatty acid linked to heart disease and type-2 diabetes. The results could lead to a tidal shift in dietary advice where fats were a much bigger enemy than carbs. The study followed 16 middle-aged, obese adults for 21 weeks.

“The unintended consequence of telling everyone to restrict fat was that people ate an even greater amount of carbohydrates,” said Jeff Volek, senior author on the new study and a professor of human sciences at The Ohio State University. “This is a fact. It’s not a stretch to make the connection between overconsumption of carbs and the obesity and diabetes epidemic.”

Before going completely crazy adding saturated fats to your diet keep in mind that the study was funded by a grant from the Dairy Research Institute, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, the Egg Nutrition Center, and the Robert C. and Veronica Atkins Foundation. The researchers reported that the funders had no role in the study design or decision to publish the research.

If anything this study gives you something to think about especially since the current wisdom of low fat diets have done nothing to decrease the rise of obesity in the United States.

Food Of The Future: No Food, Just Packaging

As you stroll down the isles of your local super market have you noticed a highly disturbing trend? The boxes food is packaged in have stayed the same size, yet the total number of onces inside the box has shrunk dramatically.

Why would a food company do this to us?

Well, friends it comes do to keeping prices down while making sure profits rise. What better way to keep profits up than to trick consumers into thinking they are getting the same amound of food for the same price.

What is food of the future?

I think there will come a day when food companies can’t shave ounces off the box and we we litterally just by boxes of air. No food will be inside the box. Just a grocery store full of colorful boxes.

Take for example the benign Triscuit. Everybody loves a Triscuit. Check out the box of reduced fat Triscuit it has about 8 tiny ounces in it. 8 ounces!!! in a giant size box!!!

Tell us what you think? Is all fair in the war for your super market dollar? Or are these shady techniques ruining the trust we have with our local grocer?
