    Found this

    Carbs against Cardio: More Evidence that Refined Carbohydrates, not Fats, Threaten the Heart: Scientific American

    I will try and get the original studies. Even with the increasing evidence the government refuses to budge on their high grain, high carb diets - follow the money.

    I was disappointed that they said don't gorge on saturated fats...
    Don't let anybody tell you, "You can't" just because they can't.

    I hear ya but they are walking a fine line. The government guidelines are being shown as wrong time and time again, but you can't out and out say they are with all the financial pressure big food manufactures put on the dietary councils.

    And a link to a different article in the comments

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19082851

    Two calorie restricted groups (about 1500 calories) one low carb the other low fat both diets saw improvement but the blood markers for glucose, insulin, cholesterol etc were much better and those on the low carb seemed to loose more weight as well.

    This one indites the high PUFA in part (vegetable and soy oils RAWR!). I do believe it is all from the nurses health study for women though.

    That last line is my favorite - the butter is healthier than the toast you put it on. Amen!

    I hope that more and more studies like this come out. The more people know this, the fewer dirty looks I'll get when I put heavy cream in my coffee instead of fat-free half and half.

    Good find Neckhammer, I know the conclusion focuses on refined carbohydrates but really their ain't a huge difference between refined grains and whole grains. The GI is still high and will have similar effects. It is just madness IMHO for the government to suggest such a high amount of our calories come from grains - no wonder they have to fortify them to make up for all the lost nutrients.

    That was my thoughts about refined vs whole grains. But why limit carbs to just grains? I mean it is essentially based on glycemic load... That can come from all sorts of carbs in excess- even natural ones.
    Don't let anybody tell you, "You can't" just because they can't.
