LOW Fat is the Key

While many in the nutrition field like to pass off low fat eating as another embarrassing 80s trend along the lines of a Sony Walkman with those foam headphones or leg warmers, no one can really argue with the clinical success and scientific research about a diet where 10% of calories come from fat. Some like the Atkins crew, Gary Taubes or even South Beach, FL like to argue that all that low fat preaching did no good. It did a lot of good, but only for the people who made the effort. Most people went their merry fat way and barely changed at all. Check my man Soulveggie’s explanation as to why in this case, 10% is the magic number.
