Obesity is caused by flour-rich and starchy foods, such as bread, cookies and macaroni. This is not a new idea, and it certainly wasn’t I who said it first. The page above is from the book “The Physiology of Taste”, by a famous French food guru.
Ignorant people like to dismiss the ideas as a “fad diet”, but then this is an extremely long-lasting fad, as the book was published in 1825.
Why does a reduction of sugar and starch – variants of a low-carbohydrate diet – recur in thousands of different forms over hundreds of years? Simple.
Most people lose excess weight without hunger on a low-carbohydrate diet. It just works.
It’s not about a fad. It’s because it works.
