    Best and easiest-to-understand explanation of what high-sugar does to you and your system I’ve ever seen!! Talk about mood disorder!

    Thanks be to you and you kids! 🙂

    Not so funny to think that because of lousy breakfasts/lunches many kids are put on Ritalin and similar drugs to deal with “misbehaviour”. 🙁

      Yup. Feed kids a lousy breakfast, note lousy behavior afterwards, put them on drugs. Quite a racket.

    Today was the day, we learned about nutrition. A dietitian from Cal-Poly came to our school to show a PowerPoint on what we should eat. She confirmed that we were supposed to have 300grams of carbage and denounced saturated fat as unhealthy. I myself, wanting to keep my A, did ask two questions. The first one was that since carbs turn to sugar in your digestive tract, and since sugar raises blood sugar, I asked that if we eat 300grams of carbs, then aren’t we ingesting more sugar? The response was that carbs were our main energy source and that it turns to fat when we don’t use the energy. In short, she dodged the question.

    Also, I asked what made saturated fat so bad, after all she gave little view on the subject. The dietitian replied that saturated fat clogged up arteries, which desperately made me want to point out that current false dietary science says it is cholesterol that clogs arteries up. In short, she made a slip-up of a slip-up.

    The dietitian said that carbs were our main source of energy and that we need to not sat much saturated fat. I bet she thought that I was one of those freaky paleo guys who hates the USDA guidelines. The dietitian is right, I am.

    It wasn’t all doom and gloom even though she probably convinced 50 kids into going along with the USDA guidelines and limiting saturated fat to 20grams per day. One of my friends who sat next to me I explained why carbs were not good and told him to check out this website.

    So thanks Mr.Naughton for keeping me from going along with the government diet agenda and I hope that soon these low-fat diet guidelines will be thrown on the junk pile of history.

    End of rant.
