    I would like to clarify my personal positon a bit. I don't talk about extreme diets like the low carb Atkin Diet where carbs are extremely reduced.

    Any long term healthy diet needs to be balanced between fat, protein and carbs. That balance has been shifted in the direction of carbs by the anti-fat fad. It should be shifted back a little in the direction of fat.

    ^ exercise is good, everyone needs it to be healthy

    being fit is an essential to a healthy life

    but that has little or nothing to do with losing weight, unless you combine your exercise with a good diet, a diet that does not starve you but contains a reasonable balance of all the minerals and vitamins necessary

    cutting out crap food, and also reducing your fat and sugar intake will help you maintain a proper weight, or even let you lose some (hopefully, even if you don't lose a lot of weight, the fat you have will be replaced by muscle)
    I have reported your post

    To certain degree, yes. For example if you were born with a life altering medical condition. Aside from that, you are in complete control of your health. The diseases that plague the world has virtually nothing to do with genetics but rather lifestyle.

    In term's of low carb diets. They are arguably the most effective for weight loss. They also are fantastic options for people with metabolic syndrome.

    However, there is nothing wrong with carbs providing you are keeping your intake within a reasonable range. I really don't think the macronutrient content matters. What matters is eating real food, staying active, minimizing stress and for the most part just being happy and enjoying life. That plays alot more of a role then people think.

    When I say real food, I mean food that wasnt manufactured in a lab, isnt processed junk thats loaded with a ton of additives. Thailand for the most part does alot of things VERY well when it comes to diet. They eat alot of real food, the ones I know don't wake up and feed their kids pop tarts and cocoa puffs. They feed them something like "johk gai" which is like rice porridge but with chicken and often times a couple of eggs. Not ideal but far better than what most people would get back in the West. Thai's also eat alot of vegetables, fruit and they aren't afraid to eat organ meats such as liver. Organ meats believe it or not are very nutrient dense foods, far more nutritious than the muscle meats we so commonly eat in the West.

    The problem with Thai food is they cook with garbage vegetable oils and they do eat alot of sugar, alot of it from unnatural sources.

    Wow, I kind of went off-topic there.

    Thai food is closer to unprocessed food. They do like Knorr tossed in all their cooking. The food has got to be loaded with chemicals from stuff like knorr. MSG is big in some Thai food, too.






    If you cook it yourself, you can control it. You get a lot of other stuff in food at shops like whatever has been burnt to the pan that happens to come off during your meal. Plus there are pesticides and other things that get in your food every once in a while: bugs, dust, pesticides?, rat's mess from the night before while they prowled the closed shop. Cooking yourself is much more guaranteed but if you live up in the countryside you might get a gust of wind that throws some dust into your creation.

    yeah thats true. Thai's love to add some artificial flavourings into some of their food. MSG being one of them. They key is to really not eat at restaurants. Doesn't matter where in the world you are.

    Cook at home, its healthier and cheaper.

    Came across this now. Good post.

    Most diet's, a huge majority of them in fact are not sustainable. The one's who place an emphasis on calorie counting/restriction you should run the other way. Calories do a play a role in body weight regulation but a very minor one. The key is to eat nutritionally dense food, and avoid processed food along with limiting sugar intake.

    Fat is completely fine though providing it is fat from natural sources as opposed to the heaps of trans fats people consume from many of the foods we eat today.

    The following link is to Mark's Daily apple and his 'Primal Blueprint' for living which is based on the way he believes our ancestors lived.

    It's pretty sensible and simple.

    The videos are on youtube. If youtube is slow, there's not much you can do about it but wait. The link goes to Mark'sDailyApple, a website. It doesn't have videos. Once in a while the site's down for maintenance. It could be that it's getting too many hits and the server is overloaded or something like that, too.

    Stacks of sugar

    Just something related. Watch out for those colas!


    39g 65g 108g


    Some more breakdowns of sugar in foods at this link. You'll have to click on the food type below the picture.
    Sugar Stacks - How Much Sugar Is in That?




    Big gulp 32 oz (28 oz coke 4 oz ice) = 91 grams sugar
    Big gulp 44 oz (38 oz coke 6 oz ice) = 128 grams sugar



    Yikes! Sugar death!

    Here's a page on 'The man who ate 25 eggs a day' for 15 years.

    Health Correlator: The man who ate 25 eggs per day: What does this case really tell us?

    And here's the New England Journal of Medicine's actual report and research on the man. There's no error in the link it just shows that for whatever reason. It takes you to the New England Journal of Medicine site.


    MMS: Error

    Guess eggs aren't so bad for you.

    Bang on. Fats are an essential part of a healthy diet, just so long as they're the right type.

    ^^^^^^^

    Hampsha,

    I downlaoded the book on "why people are fat" or something like that by Taubes and will be reading it soon.

    I'm reading it, not because of 40 lbs. over-weight, but because I'm interested in this topic.

    Thanks for the thread and posts.

    Ketogenic diet works very well - it's easy to implement, and easy to maintain.

    I lost 45 lbs in 60-70 days 3 years ago using a ketogenic diet.

    It's a very effective means to lose pure fat in a good amount time.

    Any no-carb diet works well, eat all the meat and cheese and eggs you like. Added porridge and nuts, lentils etc are not carb free, but contribute essential vitamins and minerals.
