about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.
The truth is that if we are eating in a way that creates metabolic balance, none of us has to eat an enormous amount of food. Eating three meals a day with snacks in between is NOT normal.

This is why diet matters.
"The burden of thinking about food [is] gone."
In my life, this is true. I remember the moment when I changed my own diet and was sitting in my room at 3pm realizing I did not consider or think of food for the last 6 hours. Ever since, eating is simple. I eat when I am hungry. I can go more than 4 hours without eating effortlessly without any thoughts involved. The scientific reason: my body uses fat stores and my liver creates ketones rather than being constantly bombarded with insulin and having to process carbohydrates.

Insulin and Glucagon
Here is Dr. Ben Bikman explaining the action of these hormones as regards the role of protein in the diet.

Professor Bart Kay demolishes the Calories misconception
Calories are the heat energy expressed in terms of photons and photons have no mass.
At the timestamp 12:03, a human body is not subject to the first law of Thermodynamics because the human digestion of food is regulated by a complex endocrine system and hormonal processes, using enzymes to breakdown macro nutrients and the absorption of various minerals and vitamins.

Charlatan rebuked and dismantled
I do think the plant-based diet people are going down a rabbit hole, uttering vacuous stupidity in order proselytize their ideology. When ideology abuts against truth, ideology needs to step aside and take a cold shower.
Milton Mills is a charlatan. He makes good money doing these lectures for people who pay top dollar to hear what they want to hear. There are also large conglomerate corporations who promote this BS because people who eat a proper human diet for their particular genetics will actually eat a whole lot less. So people like Milton Mills are hired to stir up the waters so that people spend money eating while becoming slowly unhealthy.
Eating 200 grams of Carbs per day every day all year long is not a proper human diet. Fats were always a part of a human diet, that's why we put butter, bacon and sour cream on potatoes, rather than eating the potatoes raw.

Lies and damned Lies
Keto or Carnivore or whatever you want to call it, as compared to a Plant-based diet is a matter of contention, but I think we should all agree that the point is to NOT blather about nonsense and ideological promotion.
Here is Australian Professor Bart Kay trouncing the lies coming from a propaganda video.
Personally I eat quality sources of meat, along with a small amount of plant food, especially sauerkraut. Any plant sources of food that I eat however are intentionally processed, soaking in a brine solution and cooking thoroughly in order to diminished the anti-nutrients and low-level toxins.
Vitamin A for instance, cannot come bio-available from a plant source, and must be converted by the liver at a 1 to 9 ratio at best. Same with iron, magnesium, and protein. Plant proteins are also often difficult to break down, and largely pass into the colon partially intact damaging the lining of the small intestines when they get lodged in the spaces between the villa, not small enough to attach to a carrier salt and get transported into the epithelial cells, so they sit and cause inflammation problems. These molecules normally get trapped in the mucus layer of the small intestine, but if the daily bombardment overwhelms the mucus layer, the non-digestible plant proteins wreak havoc on our intestinal epithelial cells and cell junctions against molecules in the colon entering the blood stream.

The Avocado Story
Giant Sloths did not defecate avocado seeds, despite the New York Times once again spreading myths and disinformation.
Humans started growing them 10,000 years ago in Mexico. That's it.

My two heroes in the 21st century
This is a great discussion about the reality of human diet with Ken Berry and Eric Westman.
Doctor Stephen Phinney discusses a randomized controlled study of people with Metabolic syndrome that gave half an LFHC (Low Fat High Carb) diet and half a LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) diet over 3 months. Essentially this is a Low Fat diet versus a Ketogenic diet.
He then discusses another study over 5 years by a Doctor in Indiana who got 252 subjects that had Metabolic syndrome. They were instructed to eat no more than 50 grams of Carbs per day.
Keep in mind that the constituents in these studies already had Metabolic syndrome.
The interesting things I found were ...
Intake of Saturated Fat is not correlated with Saturated Fat in the blood. You don't get more saturated fat in the blood because you eat saturated fat. Low carb actually had a 2 times reduction in Saturated fat in the blood
Inflammation markers in the blood all decreased significantly on a Very Low Carb High Fat diet AND a few of them increased significantly on a Low Fat diet. A few markers take longer than 3 months to stabilize, which explains some plant-based studies that indicated Reactive-C compounds go up on ketogenic diets.
Half of the people (they had type 2 Diabetes) stopped their insulin shots after the first month when doing the Low Carb diet
