    look up the blue zones of the world and then look at what they eat

    1. they eat tons of good fats
    2. they eat their share of carbs but they are good carbs. in Okinawa they eat sweet potatoes like Americans eat big macs.

    and the people of the blue zones are the healthiest on the planet.

    again there are good fats and bad fats. there are also good carbs and bad carbs. if it came from natural and is non processed and pure/organic then it is going to be good

    amazingly good fats will not spike blood sugar or reduce insulin sensitivity. American diet typically consumes 0% good fats a day. in the blue zones 40-60% of their diets are good fats. go figure

    different foods partition differently in the body. unrefined coconut oil will NOT have the same effects in your body as restaurant refined oils and a sweet potato will not have the same effects as a cake. it does NOT matter if they both are the same macros or calories!!!

    Neither are bad for you. Most people over eat full stop. Doesn't matter what it is.

    I think taking such foods upto a certain limit can not be harmful. But usually some foods cause urge to eat more, and that can harm your fitness and health.

    Re: diet myths true or false?

    I like to keep things very simple. I eat mainly meat/eggs for protein and lots of veggies. If I have a snack it will usually be some fruit or some nuts. I stay away from processed foods, especially processed carbs. That is pretty much it. The more you overthink things the harder it will be to stick to it. I honestly find alcohol the biggest issue for most people who struggle with diet.

    I use to believe a carb was a carb regardless of the source. In 2014 i use an extreme version of IIFYM, mainly using marshmallows, peeps, sherbert, candy corn etc as my carb sources. This idiotic approach landed me in the hospital. Chose wisely my friends,

    None of it is bad for you, and all of it can be bad for you at the same time. It comes down to your macros and making them work. Eat too much of anything and it's a bad thing. Too little can be a bad thing too. Have a properly balanced macro ratio and hit your numbers

    Good fats= good in moderation
    Bad fats= bad
    Carbs are good for you as long as they are low GI carbs donít overdue them.

    well said.
    however some high GI carbs are also good in moderation.
