We are going to have to agree to disagree, Monidew. I've read a few books and done some research on it myself and I'm not really seeing anything bad except from pharmaceutical companies and places who are in their pocket like AMA, ADA, etc. They are all still pushing low, low fat and whole grains and yet..the rate of heart disease and obesity is off the charts.

Even Dr. Oz, a cardiologist, agrees it's good for you.

We only use olive oil and coconut oil at my house. I avoid all polyunsaturated oils unless it's unavoidable like when I'm visiting or eating out.

Okay, off my soapbox. All that said I think everyone has to find a way of eating they are comfortable with. My WOE is low carb with good fats and protein. My BP is the lowest it's been in 10 yrs, I've lost 25lbs. Works for me.
