That is fascinating.

It's possible I'm an outlier from years of weight problems and low fat/high carb eating. Which is, itself, a warning about that health advice which dominated for decades.

But I'm doing well on a diet of meat, dairy, botanical & low sugar fruits, and not much else. Staying in Atkins Induction. The first time I've ever weighed what I should as an adult. Auto-immune issues gone into remission as long as I stick with it.

I'm sure 99% of these nutrition debaters would be horrified. But this isn't about my career or my beliefs.

It's about what works. And that's all. I can't see all those improvements as a sure road to killing me off!
