I avoided the "heart healthy" food!

We had a potluck after church today. Someone had labelled their cole slaw, "heart healthy." I just assumed that meant low fat, with added sugar, so I skipped it. I found enough other high fat, low carb food to eat. Someone brought guacamole!

Nice job! I love guacamole! I'd bring a dish I know I could eat and be okay with too. Do you do that? But you know, by implication, everything thing else wasn't healthy! lol

I can't imagine what they meant about heart-healthy slaw. Avoid. Step away.

I was telling my friend about the "heart-healthy" labels they put on cereals. He said, "They couldn't say that if it wasn't true." Oh, really?

I know exactly what you are saying. I have a friend who's Dr. told her cereal was healthy food Have they ever read the ingredients Unfortunately my DD is addicted to really crappy cereals.

I once saw a documentary type show that said the cereal industry created the pet food industry from there scraps. HMMM a step above dog food

Cereal is healthy is you follow current dogma and the SAD. So aptly named. So, Emily, do you think you'd get strange looks if you pulled out some pork rinds to dip in that gauc?!

I would imagine that she put a low fat/low cholesterol dressing on it. And I bet it had sugar in it. BTW, I was on pinterest the other day and saw a pin that had the "top 10 foods to promote fat loss." Of course, whole wheat was right at the top. Hmmmm.

That's ONLY true if you eat low fat 'products.' It's possible to remain low fat eating whole, unprocessed foods, and that won't make anyone fat. In addition, some low fat products have minimal sugar and would even fit into a low-carb plan.

It's EXCESS--whether it's low fat, low carb, or just the SAD--that results it storing fat.

I bet the coleslaw had some kind "heart-healthy" lite soybean oil dressing.

I am reading a book called The Big Fat Surprise and it details the history of inserting vegetable oils into our collective diet for "heart health" and just how horrible they really are.

Today I had a Nurse Practitioner warn me about Low Fat products and how they add sugar to them to make them tasty, and that's bad! I heartily agreed.

I hope she shares that info with her patients.

That is fabulous!!

Low fat 'products' and 'heart healthy products' contain really bad ingredients (i.e. seed oils) that damage health and lead to obesity and other metabolic issues. The problem seems to be that while people listen to the conventional wisdom, and follow the advice, they get sicker and sicker and fatter and fatter.

Where I live there is a brand name margarine that loudly pumps it's "heart healthy" tag (awarded by the heart and stroke foundation, no less). Criminal I say!
