After receiving Steven's email I thought it appropriate to explain the reason for my silly question. I am an author of two books about Carbohydrate Addiction. I'm currently preparing information for a third book. My fundamental position is that today people eat the wrong food. They eat processed manufactured foods that our metabolism and digestive system was never designed to digest.

Evolution is a very slow process. Yet, forty years ago we fearlessly, or foolishly changed from a traditional diet that stressed proteins and natural carbs foods. To a diet that was made up of more than 60% processed, manufactured carbohydrates. Why? Because some ambitious people, who called themselves Nutritionists, wanted to create their own niche of expertise on the fringe of medicine. They decided it would be a good idea to modernize the old traditional diet. So they reversed it and thereby produced a fresh new idea to make a name on.

The reason people fell into line and adopted this travesty of a diet, was a widely publicized scare campaign about cholesterol. The modern new diet, also known as The Pyramid Diet, was advertized as the only cure for high cholesterol. It seemed just about everybody proved to have high cholesterol. Thirty years later (quite recently) it was revealed that all the tests had been wrong. By then most people had become addicted to carbohydrates.

Today we eat very little protein and mostly fake carbs food. To see the outcome of this enormous change in our diet, we need only look at the people around us. We have changed from a majority of slim people, to a majority a fat people. I want to help change this by redirecting people back to the kind of diet that never required dieting. The traditional diet that our body understands. A diet that is approved by nature, doesn't make us fat and never requires us to diet.
