This week's Hump Day column...

... is about the myth of the low-fat diet and how a generation's adherence to this wrong way of eating has caused an entire society to become overweight and diabetic. Fat doesn't make you fat. Sugar makes you fat. Sugar should be our #1 dietary enemy... NOT fat. Read all about it on the editorial page of today's Moncton Times & Transcript or check back here tomorrow when it will be posted online.

I am particularly incensed by the American Diabetes Association's inclusion of white sugar in their recipes. It's unbelievable. And look at this atrocious food pyramid they put out:

Breads and starches as their #1 choice????? Breads and starches????? If you know ANYTHING about controlling your blood sugar, you should be staying away from that stuff BIG TIME.

This just goes to show that there is a very powerful wheat lobby on this continent.

(For those of you who don't know, I write a weekly column for the Moncton Times & Transcript called "Hump Day". Usually, it deals with humorous aspects of my life, general observations, etc. This week, I decided to write about low-carb.)
