Anyone here following MacKarnass' "Eat Fat and Grow Slim"?
 
Hope it's okay to post this link:

Eat Fat and Grow Slim, 1960 edition by MacKarnass


1958 edition

I found this book while looking for William Banting's Letter on Corpulence, which was a great read and very thought provoking.

MacKarnass' ratios are carbs : protein: fat at 1 : 2 : 7 respectively.

Very similar to what Barry Groves later recommended, if I have it right.

Here is Dr. MacKarnass' obituary, from 1996, in the UK Independent.

I'm really enjoying working on this. :)

Ooops. Just realized I spelled Dr. MacKarness' name wrong. Twice. Sorry!
