ok, so i just had to take a photo of this. like most people, i’ve paid exorbident fees for a mega-size beverage in my day, but this was no mega-size beverage. no sir, just your average run-of-the-mill 20oz diet coke. it was not 32oz. it was not 64oz. it did not come with an extra-long straw, crushed ice or a coupon for 20¢ off one hot dog of your choice. it was an everyday joe soda, at a carlton banks price. but, hey, you can’t beat the ambience, go sox!

NEWS: "Science Shows Vegetarians Stay Slim. Meat-eaters Get Fat" – MEDNEWSTODAY

A study carried out by Cancer Research UK found that people who eat Meat and continue to do so, put on more weight over a five year period than people who switch over to vegetarianism.

The Subjects grew fatter and fatter over the five year period. However, vegans and vegetarians gained the least fat.

Vegetarians put on less weight than meat eaters, and vegans put on less weight than vegetarians.

This study was carried out in Oxford, it was part of EPIC (European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition).

This study was carried out in Oxford, it was part of EPIC (European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition) and was not merely but a handful like some other known paleo diet studies that included barely 6 people and the rest couldn’t continue the diet, this study tested a whopping 22,000 people showing not simply some anecdotal evidence but that this fact held true over wide swaths and volumes of human population.

In other words, merely a post by one or even several individual persons making claims like "for me it worked!" or "I did it and so far I’ve lost 10 pounds" are regarded as hear-say. This is what’s called an "ANECDOTE". It’s regarded as un-scientific. Every single commercial on television for every ab gadget, diet plan, or bottle of who knows what shows exactly this type of ploy: Several people making anecdotal claims that "It worked for me!" and then showing a before and after picture showing a miracle. If you believed this type of anecdotal claim, or worse, if you believed postings in the comments on blogs or forums on the internet, then you’d need to believe that every one of those cockamamie remedies, gadgets, and rubber-band, moving exercise chair, shake-weight or supplement bottle was true and actually caused those actors abs to grow, and all of those things are absolute miracles.

To learn the difference between an Anecdote and science, if you are tempted into being duped by other people making claims on things like lowcarb forums or paleo boards, then you’d believe this: "My grandmother smoked cigarettes and lived until she was 92!" and therefore that means cigarettes are great for your health!(wrong). This is an example of an Anecdote. It’s a one-off, story. It may very well be true that some granny did live until 92, but that doesn’t mean that out of a thousand grannies, she lived until 92 but the other 999 died of lung cancer in their 50’s and 60’s. The "smoking granny" is an example of what’s called and Anecdote, an exception not the rule, a story by one individual making personal claims, that are used to dupe people less-educated in science into believing something. And it works, thousands of people tend to believe these things, even though it would be declared hear-say and inadmissable in court. This is why you need to check the number of subjects studied, and what the results are over the rest of the population, and use science. If you see posts like "I tried diet1 and it didn’t work, so I now became diet2 and I’ve lost tons of weight and never felt better!" – This should all be thrown out. Don’t be tempted. The hawker of that diet book knows you are close to believing it right now. Don’t fall for it. You must disregard all such claims, and instead take a look at the science.


Professor Tim Key, Deputy Director of Cancer Research UK’s epidemiology unit, Oxford University, said "Contrary to current popular views that a lowcarb diet low in carbohydrates and high in protein keeps weight down, we found that the lowest weight gain came in people with high intake of carbohydrate and low intake of protein."

RESULTS OF ACTUAL TESTING: *HIGH* CARB diets lose more fat. Lowcarb high protein meat-based dieters first lost weight but then ended up fatter than they started out, as their body rebounded. Lowcarb dieters lost for the 1st 6 months but then gained it all back and more after a year had passed. Reviewers found that the people advocating lowcarb diets had merely picked out the figures at 6 months and used those to push their idea that lowcarb diets worked and found nearly all of the lowcarb diet book authors had also fudged this study data in order to simply continue to sell the public more books. If you actually looked at the people and how they ended up, those on the high-carb diet remained fit and muscular, and those on the LowCarb or low grain and high meat protein and saturated fat diets began gaining and gaining fat as they rebounded and even though they were still eating the lowcarb and meat diet, they gained all of the fat back and more.
