Those of you my age or older may remember when restaurants served what was often called the “waist trimmer” meal – a burger patty without a bun and a side of tomato slices with cottage cheese. When I was in high school, our health teacher (a former wrestling coach who helped athletes make their weight class) told us if we wanted to lose weight, we should cut out sugars and starches and eat more protein foods instead.
That was the “everyone knows” advice back in the day: too many carbohydrates aren’t good for you. If you need proof, check out this clip from an old Andy Griffith episode. The relevant portion begins about 8:00 into the clip.
Keep eating that meat loaf, Andy.
