    now mayo or sour cream doesn't have those drawbacks but its still relatively empty calories and extremely energy-dense foods. i don't need that garbage in my body thank you very much.

    with carbs its not only the amount, but the speed of release that matters. i avoid all high-glycemic carbs like soda but don't mind the low-glycemic carbs like salad.

Carbs are directly converted to glucose which is burned as fuel, directly converted to glycogen and directly converted to fatty acids -> triglycerides. Fat is burned in lipolysis.

    Read the link I posted: What if It's All Been a Big Fat Lie? - The New York Times
    grow up will you ?

    we have heard those arguments probably while you were still in kindergarten.

    just because you read something that appears to make sense doesn't mean its not total bull****.

    yes a low carb diet is slightly more efficient for weight loss but in the end its still calories in vs calories out for the most part.

    also low carb diets do not support muscle mass well which may result in good weight loss without any improvement of physique - you simply get smaller.

    whats pathetic is you don't even know how to properly sell your own agenda. the reason low fat diets work is because they put the body into ketosis.

    Catz was correct, and you are completely wrong and your answer is so stupid I find it hard to think anyone would say that.

    whatever. Good protein intake will build your muscle mass. Fat intake isn't the concern everyone thinks it is. It's carbs.

    It is a low CARB diet that puts you into ketosis. They burn fat.

    You do realize that protein and dietary fat are converted into fat, as well, right?

    You could eat a diet of pure protein, but if you intake more calories than you use up in a day then that excess will be converted to fat. The reason that low carb diets seem to work is because a large portion of one's diet consists of carbs, and so when you cut them out you are significantly reducing your caloric intake.

    It's simple thermodynamics.

    It's true, many can't prepare a basic meal from simple ingredients anymore. I voted cooking is a skill and hobby. For me it's a life skill. We aren't fancy eaters in our house, but we don't buy much pre-prepared food and cook mostly from scratch. It's healthier and cheaper.

    My specialty is homemade gourmet style pizza with various toppings. Easy to make, the crust is simple and only takes an hour to rise. My latest variation is a pesto sauce. Pesto is a snap to whip up in the blender.

    Even if you don't make your own crust, homemade pizza is infinitely superior to all frozen and most delivery options.

    Some dietary fat is broken down or converted into fatty acids, but not all. Protein is not converted into fatty acids.

    It's more a matter of being on a 2200 calorie diet and what's the balance of macronutrients? Is it fat 20, protein 30, carbs 50? That'll make you fat unless you are burning the carbs with exercise. Or is it fat 35, protein 45, carbs 20 and the carbs are low glycemic index complex carbs? You probably don't need to workout to lose weight. Your blood sugars will be lower, requiring less insulin. Low IR. It's just better for you.
