Our Beloved Fats and Evil Carbs

Our Beloved Fats and Evil Carbs
Over the years, our society has discovered new dietary insights. Each new discovery results in a shift to a different and highly popular diet coined with its own name. Currently, some of the most popular diets are Paleo, Mediterranean and the old faithful Adkins diet. Moving past the 1950’s, as America continued to prosper, our waistlines likewise continued to grow. During the 1980’s and 1990’s it was reasoned that since our growing waistlines were composed of fat, the logical solution was to reduce fat consumption, thus the popular diet for that time was called low-fat.
