Still got cold - so I watched this instead of working

This guy and his book presents the science that backs up the Paleo diet and the Primal Blueprint. In it he uncovers scientific research from early last century that proves it isn't how many clories it is what calories that make people fat. It is 71min long but worth it.

In a nutshell it is not the amount of calories people eat that make them fat but what they eat. The culprit is insulin which allows fat to be stored. But the insulin is created by carbohydrates so eating a diet high in carbohydrates causes a high insulin production which causes fat to be stored. Over eat carbs i.e. pizza, fries, burger buns you've got real problems. As have type 2 diabetics which is often caused by obesity are then given insulin as a treatment - a bit of a catch22 situation.

Join the movement and we'll start a revolution - stop all unnecessary shopping - seperate your needs from your wants.
