    Really, is the South Beach diet higher in saturated fat? I ask because it's been laying on the side table next to my boyfriend's chair. We had an argument yesterday about whether dietary cholesterol raises your blood cholesterol. I told him to ask his doctor or cardiologist. He took that as a dare he thinks he's going to win.

      Ew, no, the South Beach diet is full of low fat/non-fat cheese, non-fat yogurt, turkey, non-fat this, low-fat that and admonitions to avoid all kinds of healthy stuff, including liver.

        I was at my relatives' house recently for a cookout, and when I looked at their buffet spread, I realized that, apart from breading on the baked chicken (they left the breading off of mine!) and some breadcrumbs used to prepare meatballs, everything else was primal! Shrimp, scampi in drawn butter, steak, chicken, primal-friendly veggie side dishes, fruit for dessert. I'll admit that my relatives *did* go out of their way to ensure that there was "something" I could eat there, but it was nice to see that everyone else, normally accustomed to grains & sugars, also enjoyed an almost totally primal feast and didn't seem to notice the absence of breads and sweets.

          I've come to the realization that there is no such thing as a low-carb low-fat diet. It usually turns into a low-carb low-fat diet with lots of carb cheats.

            A good friend's 5 year old daughter was just diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. When a friend of hers ( who happens to be a dr) visited them in hospital, the first thing she said was that the whole family should immediately go Primal. Best treatment for a diabetic that she could think of!

              Not a Type 1 diabetic.
              Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                I'm currently 5 months pregnant. and I had my first doctor tell me that I must eat bread or the baby won't get enough nutrients.

                SO.... I switched doctors. My new doctor said the most important thing for the baby is nutrition, and a diet high in fat and protein. Now if only I could understand what else he says (we moved to the deep south, he sounds like yosemite sam)

                  I'd love to have these doctors call each other to explain themselves.

                    Er - sounds very much like you are confusing that with weight watchers. It's generally a less extreme and more measured version of Atkins.

                    It promotes eating plenty of vegetables which happen to be low fat. It is certainly a high-fat diet and obviously high protein.

GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

                        My son who is vegetarian by choice (and hardly eats/drinks dairy) decided that he doesn't like butter because he thinks of butter as his Dad's Nuttelex, which he has been discouraged from eating. Then one day I decided to encourage him to give butter a try and cooked him scrambled eggs in butter. Although he was resistant, he was ecstatic at how yummy it was and said in awe, "this taste like magic!".

                            Well, yeah. A low-carb, low-fat diet is called "protein starvation" or "rabbit starvation" and it can kill you, in a really slow and horrible process... no sane person would voluntarily subject themselves to that long-term.

                              Hee hee... and thus we sneak into his psyche and win him over to the dark side!

                              My kid did the same thing with sour cream. Hated it for 20 years, then had some again and changed his mind. Now he loves it.
