I read this article the other day, and it’s worth a share. There’s so much crappy information and conjecture going around at the moment on this topic and in the frustration some commentators are blurting defensive, misinformed stuff to their followers. Granted, though, it’s a damn confusing topic and the latest science not only goes against what nutritionists learned at uni howevermanyyearsago, it also goes against the simplistic thinking (calories in = calories out; eat fat = get fat) that we’ve all been exposed to (an equation that has suited the low-fat movement for years).
This explanation is very cleverly done, with the information sourced from Gary Taubes of “Is Sugar Toxic” and “Why we Get Fat“. Get informed!
