I must have had my head up my butt..I just did a ton of research..ever since the doc told me my arteries are not the most pristine that he has ever seen and suggested I become a vegetarian..and found out that simple carbs can be as bad or possibly worse for heart disease as saturated fats.  I guess its a good thing to read a book or article once in a while.  Why can't they run this information during commercials on cartoon network...

True story...that simple carb stuff will kill you. I've also recently heard that some are beginning to refer to dementia/Alzheimer's as type 3 diabetes because of ever-increasing evidence that it is related to simple carb consumption. Makes sense...if diabetics lose entire limbs due to poor blood flow, why should we think sugar wouldn't cause similar damage to brain and arteries?

Saturated fat is not evil and cholesterol is your friend.

Some early studies showed a large benefit to reducing it but recent studies show either no link or a very small link. I wish doctors would get with the program and update their information on this stuff. They are killing people with bad advice.

Nice links and i like this study. Thanks for this sharing this information. This study has given to me lot of useful information about carbs. No doubt that carbs are good for health and we can maintain health of heart with using more carbs in diet.

After a hard workout, I really like having a Coke or Pepsi. How bad is this for recovery and for my health? Should I stop drinking orange juice because it is loaded with (fattening) carbs and sugar?

Some athletes wisely devour lots of fruit, believing it to be among the healthiest of food choices. But other athletes mistakenly avoid fruit, seeing it as an evil source of sugar and carbs.
