I found this interesting webpage a few days ago - Anthony Colpo - Why the Low-Fat Diet is Stupid and Potentially Dangerous and I was pleased to find such sensible advice and that it is backed up by authoritative articles and scientific evidence.
"For years Anthony Colpo has maintained The Omnivore, a website bursting at the seams with articles and insights into studies and claims about being healthy - all with references to studies.
This week, Colpo penned "Why the Low-Fat Diet is Stupid and Potentially Dangerous" - a lengthy and well referenced article about the null findings from the Women's Health Initiative Dietary Modification Trial."
To lose weight you do not need to reduce fat intake or calorie intake. - You need only to reduce salt intake, because this reduces fluid retention, and it is fluid retention that causes obesity. - Dieting is unnecessary, ineffective and dangerous to health.
Lose weight by eating less salt! Go on! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
