    This is an extremely dubious claim, to say the very least.
    You yourself said that you went on low-calorie diets, lost weight, and then when you went off the diet, you gained the weight back. Shouldn't you have kept the weight off once you started eating at maintenance levels?


    In other news, tonight I was gonna cook myself some kale, but I got lazy so I just microwaved some leftover baked sweet potato. Mmmm, vegetables. I'm surprised at how much I actually like kale, cooked in animal fat with lots and lots of garlic.

    If being called on your bullshit is what passes for "Overly aggressive" in your world.

    You're a passive aggressive twit, you're boohooohooing about how mean someone's been to you after honking your horn about how your badass honesty offends people.

    I vigorously shrug my shoulders in your general direction.

    Re Fibre - there is value in it. With healthy gut flora, fibre ferments in the small intestine to produce butyrate

    I think fibre is similar to other things, such as cardio, that are good in moderate quantities but bad at the high levels encouraged by CW.

    Butyrate has caused me to re-think my position on fiber-- which was formerly that it's irrelevant at best. I felt that fiber came along with nutrient-dense whole plant foods, but was not beneficial per se. I believed that the associations between fiber intake and a lower risk of a number of diseases were probably due to the fact that wealthier, more educated, healthier people tend to buy more whole grains, fruit and vegetables. In other words, I believed that fiber intake was associated with better health, but did not contribute to it. I now feel, based on further reading about fiber and short-chain fatty acids like butyrate, that the associations represent a true cause-and-effect relationship.

    Thanks Imasin, but that doesn't say that too much fibre is bad for you, which is Owly's claim!

    Anyone who's ever consumed too much fibre will tell you exactly how it's bad for you!
