Dietary Ignorance

So it’s big, big news that an overweight aging celebrity chef (really restauranteur) has diabetes.  Much hand wringing ensues that her high calorie, high fat cooking must be the cause.

Karen De Coster points out the spectacular ignorance in the mainstream, including medical doctors on television.  Put simply, fat doesn’t alter your blood sugar or create insulin resistance.  Lots of carbs does, though.  So does eating too much and getting old.
