eat protein and fat, avoid carbs. Same story for the last decade. For some reason people don't understand this.

They also have a long shelf life and can be grown with NPK from oil.

Carbs are sugar. When your body digests carbs it turns it into sugar

But all the spices are in the center, everything will be bland :(. The wine and beer is on the sides though, so I guess I'll be okay.

Flour, corn starch, and rice aren't foods? They are in the middle isles (I'm trying to be a pedantic bastard).

Agreed. The challenge is finding places that sell meals like this when you are on the go all day. Options are getting better, but it's slow progress.

There's lots of conflicting information out there for someone who doesn't know. I didn't realize how easy it was to lose weight by simply cutting down carbs, and all sugar, until about a month ago. Fucking wish I realized this sooner, that it was all those carbs making me hungry later for no reason.

yes, if you think the food pyramid is a conspiracy better only listen to the advice of those who have jumped through the government hoops and have been brainwashed into the company line...

Maybe making things fat-free but adding a shit ton of sugar was a bad idea

it was a horrible idea: less filling and more addicting.

It was a wonderful idea for prepackaged food companies. They have no obligation to the health of consumers, only to shareholders.

As the Food Network keeps telling us, "fat is flavor." Well, you take that out you got to replace the flavor with something...and that usually ends up being sugar.

I love how every time I tell people that I love cooking with lard or confiting potatoes in beef fat or using butter they imply that it's going to make me die young. And not because of the potatoes.

I mainly cook with coconut oil and lard and everyone thinks I'm crazy

Shiiiiit. Coconut oil and bacon fat are my default go to substances for anything in a pan. My SO is always telling me I should use so much, or I should eat fewer eggs. I keep telling her about Gaston and how many eggs he ate and she keeps looking at me like I'm crazy.

End of the day, fuck it. I save my pork bacon grease to cook my turkey bacon in and chicken, and hamburgers, and vegetables, and... well anything really.

I'm also a fan of coconut oil. It makes the best popcorn. Of course, with either coconut oil or lard you have to stay away from the hydrogenated versions.

Lard, fat etc are all ok - coconut oil is actually fucking really bad.

Beware the fads.

rather the policy behind it. the food pyramid was propaganda designed to justify the massive subsidies given to corporate agriculture interests.

true fruits are ok really. it's the processed grains and refined sugars to worry about. fats fill you up for longer, probably why the food industry went away from it, to keep people buying more shit with quick carbs in it

They are "ok" in the sense that they are good for you and have antioxidants and shit... but fructose will lead to fat being generated just like any other sugar. If you want to lose fat as effectively as possible you avoid fruits or stick to a small amount low GI fruits. It's less healthy but you'll lose the fat faster. Green vegetables are important though especially if you're going on a protein heavy low carb diet since those lead your stomach to be more acidic and to calcium being sucked out of your hair and bones and green vegetables help mitigate that.

The food industry went away from fats because "avoid fats" was the then current food fad in the U.S. - the "gluten-free" of its time. Heck, we even bred lean pigs because of that "fat-free" demand.

Well, "fat is flavor," as Food Network says, and when they took that out they had to replace it with something - which usually ended up being sugar and salt.
