Fat is not bad.
Fat is not bad.
Fat is not bad.

Also, as any diabetic will tell you, carbs are not as bad when they're accompanied by 1. Fiber (which triggers insulin production to manage them) and 2. Fat (which slows their release).

The problem is all our highly refined foods is the fiber is removed from them so there's nothing to tell your body 'hey we just had wack loads of sugar' and corn based sugars have the wrong ratios of fructose to sucrose so your body doesn't recognise them and feel sated after consuming them... meaning you can have 2000 calories and still feel hungry.

There's a fantastic, though science heavy documentry on YouTube called "Sugar the Bitter Truth" which is required viewing IMO and talks about the fructose heavy sugars extensively.

Here it is:

coool, video

now my questions........

-is there a certain BF% that indicates when a persons insulin levels are too high and storing to much fat?

-i cant remember if he said it in the videos, but IF your insulin levels are too high, what are the best ways to lower said levels as to when you were younger and your metabolism was working most efficiently. (i believe he said exercise will reduce it, but if you dont keep the regime going you will gain the weight back)

with that being said....are fat people fucked for life and have to maintain extremely high fitness levels for the rest of their lives....and lower BF% people can simply maintain low-moderate fitness levels for the rest of their lives(or just stay away from foods that would cause increase in insulin)

-is there any true way to permanently reduce your insulin levels so that they are working at a normal level, where you can just maintain a proper normal human diet(which is dictated by this video) this presentation exactly what i will see in the movie FATHEAD?....

its refined carbs and trans fat etc that leads to huge health problems.. modern science and assumptions has made saturated fat worse than it really is. It is indeed natural and what humans have been eating for centuries. the food industry has fucked people up with cheap refined foods that are mass produced and are cheap.

not so sure about that... the big thing isnt just about refined being bad for you, it is that saturated fats aren't as bad for you as they are made out to be. the biggest culprit among all bad foods is sugar, whether you eat it in the form of carbs or corn syrup etc. the rule of thumb for me is "if you see commercials about it, you have to be skeptical about how good it really is for you". we live in a world of marketing and money. case in point, corn. it is in fucking everything, yet the human body isn't meant to eat so much of it, if at all any of it. it is cheap and mass produced and a huge money maker for the states..
