Were they agreeing with everything in the article? I only skimmed it but one bit of misinformation stood out to me immediately. Too much protein can in fact be dangerous for your kidneys, particularly if you have diabetic kidney disease. Telling diabetics to eat lots of protein to "improve" their diabetes without checking with a doctor and being screened for nephropathy is irresponsible.

Yeah, for the most part. Fortunately, there were also several people calling out the article's BS. The fact that it got approved and a mod flaired it as sanity tells me that that place has taken an even bigger nosedive than it did before the fattening.

Also, I found out that I'm shadowbanned on Reddit now, so here's my debunking comment. I think I did ok, but I just want some people to see it:

Having heard them before does not mean they're not fatlogic. Yes, eggs can be healthy. Yes, dietary fat can be good for you. Those two are true.

On the other hand:

1) There are lots of Omega oils that are great for you, i.e. fish oil and the likes. It's a matter of how you get them.

2) Low carb diets are very bad for you, especially if you exercise a lot. It's a matter of complex carbs vs. simple carbs

3) Not all sugar is bad. It's just not, in fact some is necessary.

4) Grains can be good for you. Just because agriculture is relatively young compared to human existence doesn't make them bad. In fact, a lot of hunter-gatherer societies subsisted on wild grains. Meat was a luxury that was not often consumed. The gatherer portion of that title is far more important than the general public knows. (I studied paleoamerican archaeology in college. If you want some more info concerning this, I recommend you look for books by David G. Anderson, he was my mentor and academic advisor, and quite the expert on the subject).

5) low fat foods CAN be good for you. That being said, the additives are the evil culprit, not the food itself.

6) The small meal theory is complete bullshit, I'll concede on that one too. It honestly can't alter the metabolism enough to make a difference.

The overwhelming point that the article missed is that moderation is key. It really is at the very core about TDEE and Caloric intake. For just very basic weight loss, that is priority 1. Having a well rounded diet is important, and I don't intend to to take away from that, but at the core, what you eat is not nearly as important as how much you eat and how much you burn.

This is why this article is absolutely not sanity, and IMO the worst kind of fatlogic. It makes just a couple good points, then fills the rest of the plate (pun intended) with a bunch of crap. It basically feeds the BS fad diet crazed that I'm sure were the target audience.

That's a really good comment, can you post it under a new account?

That sub makes little sense to me. It's mostly fat people making fun of fatter people, and the mods take every opportunity possible to slam FPH even though their content isn't all that different. They are just more PC.
