New Article on Co.Exist. (Part of Fast Company) It's HOW the average diet is making you thicker...not really ways to change it, but a recognition tool and the science behind it.

    i don't believe this...!! i think in general that fat makes you fat ... and carbs are the best and actually what matters the most is the source of your food... because you can find some healthy fats that are good for you, but you must eat them moderately :)

Complex carb diet. Healthy eating.

"carbs are killing you" is a bit of an incomplete statement but I agree with: "eating fat does not make you fat" and "Pasta, Not Bacon, Makes You Fat". This is a great article.

    What is this based on? This pin is ridiculous-- First: Yes, insulin ends lipolytic processes, but that's okay, because then your body can burn glycogen for fuel. Also, for most of the day your body is using an oxidative process for energy (primarily fat for energy), so it doesn't mater. Second: The facts comparing the two types of diet are skewed; Low carb diets don't allow for as much glycogen storage, and they also make you (relatively speaking) dehydrated (as 1g of glycogen can hold up to 2.7g of fat). So, the difference seen is likely water weight, hence why people claim to "lose" multiple percentages of body fat in a matter of days after switching to low carb. Let's not forget that insulin is also anabolic (tissue building), which is why bodybuilders and athletes eat fast digesting carbs after training. Also, this infographic does not take into account the thermic effect of food. All food requires energy for processing-- Fat takes the least amount of energy to digest, followed by carbs, then protein. This is why true ketogenic diets call for a further reduction in calories-- To account for a lowered RMR. Finally, let's not forget that protein also produces insulin-- So the idea that you can eat as much fat and protein as you want but avoid carbs to prevent the secretion of insulin is a fallacy. For the record, my macronutrients are moderately balanced (I eat moderate protein, moderate fat, and moderate carb), but the fact remains: Neither carbs, nor fat make anyone fat-- Consuming more calories than burned throughout the day makes people fat. */rant*
