Please explain how every greek is fat, when they eat very LITTLE carbs. Infact the greek diet is mostly VEGETERIAN and FULL OF PROTEIN AND SATURATED FATS.

Please. Seriously once I get back down to my target weight I will do your EXACT diet for 30 days that you want me to do and I WILL PROVE TO YOU that I will gain weight.

I'm not familiar enough with 'real' Greek cuisine to comment on that. If Wikipedia is accurate however, it's pretty easy to see why Greeks get fat. Pretty much every side dish is stuffed with copious amounts of rice or bread, and a lot of it is deep-fried (presumably in vegetable oil, which is bad)

Also keep in mind that people are different. Some people tolerate carbs just fine (like my wife, who can eat as many carbs as she wants and won't get fat) while others (like myself) so much as smell carbs their insulin starts storing fat).

Because it's insulin (well it's more complicated than that obviously, but that's the basic idea) that makes you fat, not fat. How your body handles insulin is what determines how fat you are. With dietary fat however, we all handle it the same. So one person may or may not get fat from insulin, they aren't necessarily going to do so from actual fat (within moderation of course).



...


Anyway, if you're ever in HK and want a good pineapple bun with butter, check out Tsui Wah. They use real butter from New Zealand (so they are grass-fed cows) and they keep the butter on ice, so it stays hard. Go early though, it sells out every day and is usually gone by the afternoon.

Processed foods are the devils, not carbs.

It's the sudden intake of corn syrup/sugar/white breads that are making people fat, not whole wheats.

I agree that saturated fats are fine, since french/greeks eat a shitload of them, and we have very long life expectancy but at 100 most people are hefty!

The additional processed carbs are definitely to blame for how obese people are getting, but whole wheat isn't much better for you, in terms of the insulin spike you get from it.

For most people, simply avoiding the real junk is all they need to do. But if you simply replace them 1:1 with so-called "healthy" grains, you are going to be just as fat.

I guess it's a good thing "healthy" grains taste so bad, so it's pretty much impossible to eat as much of them

given the choice of margarine OR butter, id go with butter.

hydrogenated oils is bad for you! margaine was developed as a cheap substitute to butter during the wars...

They open at 7:15, but the first batch of pineapple buns come out fresh at 8:00am IIRC.

Straight up salted butter, preferably from grass-fed cows. Anchor is good.

Well just read the ingredients, and make sure it's made of nothing more than cream and salt. If it says "milk ingredients" or "milk solids" or "water" anywhere, put it back on the shelf.

I'd honestly feel truly sorry for you if you couldn't go through life enjoying a deserts, a slice of fresh baked bread, good cheese and a bottle of wine because your worried about a simple insulin spike.

Also "define" replace. Portion sizes have increased in the past 20 years. And people now eat past the limit of being satisfied.

PS: Healthy grains actually taste quite good, although I do enjoy a nice crusty baguette once in a while.

Who's saying not to eat desserts or fresh baked bread? Would you live off those? I assume not.

Also, despite what may be common belief, portion sizes haven't increased in the last 20 years, they have decreased. Dietary fat has decreased as well. And also during the last 20 years, Exercise has increased. But people are getting fatter. Wonder why?

All I am saying is, eat properly and you can enjoy some junk once in a while. The difference is knowing what is actually junk and what isn't. We all know ice cream and pizza are bad for you. And "healthy" ice cream and "healthy" pizza are usually even worse, because they take out the good (the fat), leave in the bad (the sugar/starch) and add more bad (more sugar/starch to replace the fat).

By knowing how your body handles insulin spikes, you can determine how often and when you can get away with eating junk. Lowering overall calories by way of fat isn't going to do a damn thing for you, in terms of health or physique.

Just dont stuff yourself with this pineapple bun with butter before bed time. The old saying goes something like this:
"Eat breakfast like a king and dinner like a pauper"

I watched this documentary on the body clock and explained insulin normally peaks in morning and is lowest as evening progresses. Bad to have all those excess glucose floating around in your blood since no insulin around to decrease the level.

Did they put the butter in before bringing it to the table or do they have the butter separate from the bun?

I believe they put the butter in before bringing it out to you (at least that's what I noticed.)

But maybe we should wait for that Honger, Alphamale, to reply.
