I encourage you to read this article.

Saturated fat is good for you.

I don't worry about my cholesterol or other lipids because since I started eating low carb/high fat 3 years ago, they take care of themselves.

As to oatmeal, it certainly caused my blood sugar levels to jump big time. If you are concerned about cholesterol, I found this video both informative and entertaining.

This is an excellent lecture for everyone who will take the time to watch. Thanks for posting, amp.

Since I am a subscriber to Time magazine, I went to their website and found the 1961 cover story on Ancel Keys and his phony research. It makes me so mad I can't even read the damn thing! But if any of you are subscribers (if you subscribe to the magazine, you can register for free to their website), click the link above - I just hope your head doesn't explode like mine has.

The doctors you mention are not experts, they are salesmen. We know Barnard's agenda - he is an animal rights advocate aligned with PETA, so he has no real interest in helping diabetics apart from picking their pockets. His PCRM is not a physicians council as he wants people to think, but is a

As for Fuhrman, he's a salesman too . . . Science-based Medicine has this to say about him:
As for John McDougall [SIZE=2][COLOR=DarkSlateGray](who of course has plenty of his own stuff - the better to pick your pocket), he is not only wrong, he is arrogant, rude and hateful, full stop.
Thanks for the replies everyone. I am not a complete vegan. I do eat small amounts of meat. When I was eating a lot more meat, my cholesterol levels were dangerously high. I just want to find a healthy balance. I just had a friend who suffered a massive stroke. His doctor warned him that he was eating too much red meat and dairy for many years but he ignored and now he is in a wheelchair and unable to speak. I am going to quit eating the oatmeal and increase my fatty fish intake but I have to be careful not to spike my cholesterol levels back up. I do not wish to be on any meds. unless absolutely necessary.

My husband and I have good cholesterol levels since being on LCHF - red meat and dairy do not raise cholesterol, in fact they lower it. Your friend's stroke was not caused by eating red meat and dairy - his doctor was highly mistaken, but in his defense, it's what he was taught in medical school and it's has been the official propaganda for fifty years. But I repeat - it is WRONG.

If you have time to listen to the video posted above, it is an excellent account of events that caused the official nutritional values in this country to get so whacked. Bad science and big business indeed - right along with arrogant politicians and sleazy bureaucrats.

We all eat a moderate amount of protein on lchf. Carbs are low, protein moderate, and fats high.
