(io9)   Good news everyone: You can now continue bacon binging and snacking on lard bricks as scientists fail to connect saturated fats with heart disease. Be sure to hurry, though, as scientists tomrorow will tell us it's unhealthy again   (io9.com) divider line 20

The people who told us about sun block were the same people who told us, when I was a kid, that eggs were good. So I ate a lot of eggs. Ten years later they said they were bad. I went, "Well, I just ate the eggs!" So I stopped eating eggs, and ten years later they said they were good again! Well, then I ate twice as many, and then they said they were bad. Well, now I'm really farked! Then they said they're good, they're bad, they're good, the whites are good, th-the yellows -  make up your mind! It's breakfast I've gotta eat!

I dunno. I quit eating simple carbs (white sugar, white flour, etc) and dropped 20lbs in a blink. I eat what most would consider to be way too much sausage a and bacon and the bathroom scale is moving in the right direction. And my blood work is looking great.

Tomrorow!
Tomrorow!
I love you tomrorow!
You're always a day away!

That said, bacon is far too delicious for me to care if it's bad for me or not.

Isn't there a research paper out there where the the people in the high-fat diet suffered had more heart problems (no deaths) while some people with the low-fat diet died during the run of the research?

I make sure I eat a shiatload of saturated fats. Butter and coconut oil are the go to fats for me. I throw in some olive oil and like on occasion. My blood work is also always stellar.

Don't forget the avocados... those work wonders.

This one has buns made of fried mac-n-cheese:

I've lost 53 pounds since October eating bacon, coconut oil, and enough protein to keep from losing muscle. I don't have blood sugar spikes and dips anymore. It works for me. YMMV.

But don't worry, the day after that it will be healthy again.

All my relatives in croatia have been living to 75-90 years old and all they eat is smoked ham and cheese and bread.

We're all pretty dumb, but goddamn and we happy and healthy.

I thought trans-fat was the bad kind since saturated fat had nothing to bind with? Oh well what the hell do I know about diets.

Dieticians can change their minds all they want, in the future it will only be this -

I've also taken quite a liking to snacking on a couple tins of sardines a week. My doctor is ecstatic.

DerAppie: Isn't there a research paper out there where the the people in the high-fat diet suffered had more heart problems (no deaths) while some people with the low-fat diet died during the run of the research?


Not when they control for this small little variable called calories. It is absolutely astounding how many nutrition studies either don't or let people self report calories consumed.

Skinny people over report calories, fat people under report.

The body doesn't violate the laws of thermodynamics but some cars have more efficient engines or ones with lower rev limiters.

Which is why you fill the gas tank appropriately.

Sure, but imagine buying your gas only in 10 gallon increments.
