I fought and was miserable and fat trying to follow low fat high carb guidelines for most of my life. Now I am eating low carb high fat , no grain, and no processed foods. I have dropped 50 lbs. In 4 months, I feel great, my blood pressure is down, and blood sugar is normal, and I am happy and satisfied! So my diet is more like 60% good fats (no trans fats, or seed oils), 25% highest quality protein I can afford, and 15% nutrient dense carbs, lots of spinach, and kale..
So I have to agree, current research is showing Ancel Keys (the guy who did observational studies and led us down this low fat /high carb path) was wrong!
Glad to see so many other low carbers are here giving testimony, so maybe the word is out, and others won't suffer into their 60's as I have.
You know America started getting really obese when we started following the low fat guidelines in the the late 70s, and big food jumped on board in the 80's.
