    Well, I stayed and worked for years there, also learned the language, so I am pretty sure that CarbDogders experience is atypical. Things may have changed a little during the last years, since I stayed there in the eighties. But I am pretty convinced that the staple food in those countries is still bread and carbs and relative low fat...

    I was just checking a map with macro breakdown, but frankly it doesn't help decifer the source of macros (i.e. bread vs fruit).

    Plus who knows how legit it is, but there you go if anyone wants a look Dietary Macronutrient Composition per capita

    And the eighties!!! Damn your old but yeah, I'm sure there is regional variance so maybe you can both be correct rather than saying that ones experience must be atypical.

    Of course the whole world is becoming westernized and totalitarian agriculture ruled, so its no surprise that this map shows very little differences (except caloric load).

    Except the N=1 experience of CarbDodger and Gorbag; Scandinavians are famous world vide as notorious bread eaters! It’s a bit like the Japanese and rice, things may have changed dietary in Japan over the last years, but I am pretty sure that rice is still a staple food there…

    Interesting link.
    Among the developed nations I was surprised both by how similar the macrats are, and how the differences don't seem to predict much healthwise. I wonder if the energy excess is being driven by a combination of nutrient deficiency and (possibly addictive) toxins in some nations but not others?

    Vegetable oil vs seafood
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
