And then came along Ancil Keys. What a mess. If you’re overweight and/or suffer from metabolic syndrome stop eating the Standard American Diet (SAD). This diet is making us sick. Forget calories in/calories out. Forget exercising 2 hours a day. Don’t get me wrong – exercise is great for a lot of things but losing weight is not one of those things. A good book that explains what’s going on is called “The Obesity Code” by Jason Fung. Read it. You can thank me later.
