Originally Answered: a "high fat, low carb diet" to lose weight and be healthier? why people believe this diet?
Hey Anon, Great question.. Humans fall on a bell curve for everything.. some humans are dumb af, and many refuse to take personal responsibility for their health.
They refuse to believe unlimited beans, fruits, and veg is good for you, because they want to enjoy that Tbone steak, ribs, cheese and eggs.
Nutrition is based on physical science, the mechanistic data is out, and animal products negatively impact health.
We can not sugar coat reality, and warp the science, the real logical run down is
"how much does taste pleasure override optimal health" because moderation is a lame response.
I have been posting replies for a few months now, and none of the low carbers on this forum has any knowledge of nutrition, they would rather throw insults, and bully me into silence, and try to leak my personal information.
non of the Low carbers have ever provided evidence based scientific literature to back up their claims, because they know I will rip it to shreds. ( study design, health of participants, funding source, data collection methods )
I doubt they even know what a fat molecule looks like, or the elements that form a fatty acid.
They can never tell me why I am wrong, and show me how they are right, it is like debating school kids from a cult.
The most painful thing is that they share their horrific views with such confidence, they are literally spreading death and disease with large amounts of arrogance, and that breaks my heart.
Look at this question, none of them have been able to provide any scientific evidence. they have no critical thinking and believe in propaganda, some are stupid, some just want to believe in the pseudoscience so bad, so they do not have to admit they are slaves to their tastebuds.
I am only allowed to paste 10 links in my answers, so I need to be efficient. I use this website because each link will direct you to at least 7 peer reviewed studies. please click on the sources cited tab
Watch people will thumbs down, but no one will leave a comment explaining how this science is wrong, or offer science to back up their claims. Dr Atkins died overweight and had secret heart disease he hid from the public. A book or video is only valid if it contains sound science. Not the goal to get rich on weak peoples suffering.
I am embarrassed to say, I actually gave up for a while, I let their ignorance get to me, but I realized I had to keep trying. These questions represent real people, and real lives, and a lot of them sincerely want to get healthier.
To maintain my sanity, I ignore loaded questions for example
" I want to lose weight, but please do not recommend hard diets, i do not like veggies, or exercise that requires me to leave the house"
those people do not want to be helped, posting a question makes them feel like they tried, but they haven't really until they put on those trainers and go for a walk.
On this forum I have seen legitimate assassination attempts, people here tell people to eat 6 eggs a day, and 4 tablespoons of coconut oil a day is good for the brain.. WTF? so I try my best to snipe those replies when I see them,
