Is Impossible for Passionate People
that the “extreme” low-fat (Ornish-, McDougall-, and
Pritikin-type) and high-fat (Atkins-type) diets have,
according to news reports, failed, moderation is again the
almost unanimous recommendation heard from the media,
scientists, dietitians, and doctors. Without a doubt,
moderation works for some people with “moderate”
personalities, but what about passionate (compulsive,
lustful, obsessive, enthusiastic, etc.) people like me?
Readers' Responses to the
"Low-fat Diet Failure" News
want to take this opportunity to share your responses to me
about the news story on Wednesday, February 8, 2006 about
the "failure of the low-fat diet" and my response to that
article (see my letter).
Report on the February 2006 Advanced
The advanced study weekend held
February 3rd ,4th, and 5th
was an outstanding success with more than 120 people
enjoying each other’s company, the fabulous food and the
nation’s top speakers on health.
Some people say they can’t
follow the diet because the foods don’t taste good. After
this weekend that is no longer a valid excuse for these
folks. With meals consisting of two entrees, four salads,
two soups, many side dishes and three different desserts,
participants received a real education on what can be made
fast, familiar and delicious.
