    And so much bad science regarding FAT that steered and continues to steer American diets away from traditional healthy fats toward harmful fats and oils sold as "healthy". Ancel Keys did a lot of harm that is still to be undone.

    "It was Ancel Keys, paradoxically, who introduced the low-fat-is-good-health dogma in the 50's with his theory that dietary fat raises cholesterol levels and gives you heart disease. Over the next two decades, however, the scientific evidence supporting this theory remained stubbornly ambiguous."

    Food labels never list the percentage daily value of sugar.

    I watched the documentary "Sugarcoated" a while back and it made me quite irritated.

    That was a long article! Eye's glassed over a couple of times. Also pretty old. Might be more relevant info on the subject 14 years later. I actually have the opinion everything in moderation. So weather the evidence supports it or not I would no more eat a high fat meal than I would carbs. I'm bad about vegetables and fruits but try to eat a cup or so of rice or half a potato with some type of meat, usually red. And my fruit usually entails ether orange juice or grape. Which arguably not be that moderate. Especially if I drink a pint a day which isn't all that uncommon for me. I think the extra sugar does help me fight off fatigue during the day. That along with two cups of coffee which I usually put two teaspoons of sugar in and a cup of tea if I'm still dragging. I think the key to carbs is not to smear butter, gravy, cheese or sour cream on them. Or fry them. All taste's very good, but very bad. In my opinion. And I used to do it but no more. And I've been slightly below the 25 bmi guideline used to assess weight for some time now. Which I think trumps weather you lean heavy on one or the other, carbs or fats
