Okay, I'll say what I think, and what works for me.
We need ALL: carbs, fat, protein, AND we need micronutrients, vitamins and minerals that are normally (used to be) in most basic healthy foods.
Cutting out one of the basic three is putting us in an imbalance, & I suspect will have penalties down the road.
I challenge you all to educate yourselves on healthy diets, NOT fad diets, or those that advertise and brag things like "lose 10 Lbs in a week!" or fill in whatever.
LONG AGO, A great help to me was a book called "Are You Confused?"
by Airola, Paavo.

Coffee increases Blood Sugar?
Another note on calcium: decades ago scientists discovered that we need both calcium and magnesium together for them to work.
The proper ratio was thought to be 2 to 1, or twice as much calcium as magnesium.
Shortly after (don't know exactly without looking it up) they corrected it to needing to be a one to one ratio.
that was over 20 years ago.
However, what is sold now is that same incorrect 2 to 1 ratio.
For me, too much calcium causes cramps.
So, I don't even supplement calcium since for me it also contributes to KIDNEY STONE production. and I still have 7 stones in my kidneys, waiting to come out. Smile

In my mind, what corporations are doing is truly atrocious.

Most pre prepared foods are NOT good for us.

The so called staples, (Coffee, cows milk, Meat, white four (in almost everything) soda's, donuts, croissants or rolls, white bread, candy bars, cakes and cookies with zero nutritional value (sugar, fat, white flour & spices or chocolate), and so on.) normal things people are able to purchase, are really terrible for us when considering our overall health.

Corporations are money making machines, effectively mindless. Incapable of remorse.

When I was a boy in school, there was only ONE fat kid.

Now most of us are fat.

Eating right is not easy, we have to buck the trend, and the overwhelming overate and subtle influence of advertising.

Main way I do that is eat a huge breakfast AND then a early large lunch. So I'm not interested in cookies in the afternoon or evening.

I cannot lose weight and am completely frustrated.
this post is relevent as well:
We need food during the day. Not at night.
Lets switch to worry about GETTING ENOUGH FOOD at BREAKFAST & before 2pm INSTEAD of worry about getting too much??

When we don't eat a big breakfast, we train our body to think we are in a famine.
It gets very very good at RETAINING fat, for survival.
When we eat a big huge breakfast, it fuels us until our big healthy lunch.
Then for dinner we don't need to OR WANT TO gorge, or to crave cookies, cake, steak & potato, snacks before bed.
We burn fat when we sleep.
But if we eat a huge dinner or snacks before bed, our body spends a lot of time storing fat while we sleep. Since sleeping we don’t need a ton of food (a full belly). We need that DURING the day while we work.
Exercising before the huge breakfast is the best time to burn fat, since we are already in burning fat mode.
So as little as 10 to 15 min light to medium exercise is equal to 25 to 30 min later in the day.
We don’t need to kill ourselves with aerobics to lose or maintain weight.
ANYBODY can easily get fat with todays common diet and stressful lifestyle, but at 70 years old I'm still lean and healthy.

How about how corporations have done this to us?
Corporations produce the same basic poor quality foods, processed foods, Loaded with salt and fat, cakes and cookies with very little nutritional value (white flour, main ingredients SUGAR & FAT, then some spices or blueberries or chocolate to tempt us. And everything including cosmetics filled with supertoxins, which overload the liver with false estrogenetic chemicals )

Yes, and it's also due to us having so little time (commuting, working, rushing around doing things that need doing) that we don't have time to eat a good breakfast, leisurely to properly digest our healthy food choices.
But, we are smarter than that.
We can make those choices.!

Good responses;
Aereobics: yes someone posted a good article here a few weeks back about that.
A woman marathon runner found she got fat by running.
Saying she found out that since running burns fat, using the slow twitch muscles, then our body STORES up fat since it's mainly what's needed!
She switched to interval training and using fast twitch muscle groups, got lean and slim again.
