Its about the new buzz for high protein high fat foods (including those bullet proof coffees)
last few paras.. i would have to agree
"An optimal diet for preventing disease is a whole-foods, plant-based diet that is naturally low in animal protein, harmful fats and refined carbohydrates," he says.
"What that means in practice is little or no red meat; mostly vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes and soy products in their natural forms; very few simple and refined carbohydrates such as sugar and white flour; and sufficient 'good fats' such as fish oil or flax oil, seeds and nuts."
As well as diet (and the focus is quality not quantity), other interventions, including stress management, social support and moderate exercise are important.
McMillan agrees that quality over quantity and wholefoods are key.
"You can put together a wholefoods diet in a number of different ways," she says. "You can be vegetarian or eat meat."
Adds Professor Noakes: "The key is a higher protein pattern in conjunction with low GI grains fruits vegetables and dairy foods. Good nutrition is more than focussing on one nutrient."
Perhaps the point is that one method is not better than the other. Or one might be better than the other but not for everyone.
Either way, it's probably better to hold the double serve of bacon.
thoughts ? a lot of good points if you have time to read the article
