The macronutrient triangle – stay away from the base
Here’s an interesting new graph from Dr. Ted Naiman. I’ll let him explain it himself:
Just stay away from the base of this macro triangle — obesity awaits in the low protein CARBS+FAT zone*.

Can adding fat to bad carbs making them even worse for people’s weight? I think so, but feel free to leave a comment below if you disagree!

Basically, the carbs turn on fat storage and prevent fat burning, and then all of the fat goes straight to the adipocytes and stays there forever! Perfect combo for obesity! Much better than just carbs by themselves or fat by itself. Keep protein low to eliminate protein satiety (try to eat ten chicken breasts), and you can eat this stuff all day long. And we know that in humans, all of the most fattening foods are high carb and high fat together, like potato chips (suggested by research to be the single food that is MOST associated with obesity), french fries, ice cream, doughnuts, and the list goes on and on!
This also implies that fat is bad for you. That's simply not true. While you want to avoid eating any vegetable oils (save maybe olive oil, and I'd not convinced this is good for you), I find animal fat to be filling, way more filling than "protein".
