Is eating all of this fat really good for me?
what our members have to say...
take on it
do mention how hard it is for people to give up their old
low-fat diets, not realizing that for carbohydrate addicts,
it's the carbs that are the culprits of our weight gain. If
you think that you are susceptible to high cholesterol (due
to family history, etc.) then I would check your cholesterol
when you start and perhaps after you've been on this WOE (way
of eating) a month. I would hesitate to ask your doctor simply
because I've never run across a doctor who understood this
WOE. When they hear low-carb they automatically think Atkins
and dismiss it as unhealthy.
can tell you that I've never eaten so healthy in my life since
I started this WOE. If you truly are a carb addict, you will
lose weight and you will get your eating under control.
think you have to eat too high fat in order for this WOE to
work, if you stick to lean meats, fish and chicken, avoid
bacon and other processed meats, you should be able to keep
your fat intake pretty low and still follow this WOE. There
is another book by the Hellers called the Carbohydrate Addicts
Healthy Heart Program that I'm sure deals with the subject
of your question, I never read it though so I can't say for
sure what's in it. Maybe you can take a look at it at some
bookstore to see if you want to buy it.
I feel that my diet has never been healthier in my life and
I don't think I increased the fat in my diet. Foods made with
flour and sugar also tend to be high in fat, so since I've
been limiting those, I actually think my fat intake decreased.
