Oh dear DH eat some fat for goodness sake, we want your brain to remain healthy for years to come. FAT is NOT to be feared!

Thanks to those who chimed in. Once Becky jumps in people take it as gospel. It's nice that I'm not the only voice of reason out there :)

I miss RUSSELL, he was always so well spoken and knew his stuff :(

Forget the Dean Ornish website, try my house. My husband's a low fat vegan!

Can you imagine trying to counter the party line on a Dean Ormish website? Or the Pritikin Diet website? We're allowed extraordinary latitude here, considering that we advocate a diet that is so different than the SP diet.

I think RUSSELL was "invited" to cease and desist. I don't know - but he was so active and eager to help here... and then he just "poofed", with no warning. That doesn't seem like RUSSELL. I've been warned a few times about deviating from the party line myself. We can pretty much have open discussion in our own forums... but when we venture into the open "mainstream" ones, it can get tricky.

Just be careful. We need to retain all the good members we've got!

Idk if I helped, I tried to recommend some healthy carb options and I know legumes are debatable too. but they keep me fed and help keep the lights on.

Was Russell kicked off SP?

Alas, more mythinformation being bandied about. Once Becky digs in, the topic is doomed. There's no such thing as informed discussion in that case. That's how we lost RUSSELL, and how I've skated too close to that edge on several occasions. Tread cautiously, JERF -- we don't want to lose you!

If I can find some non-inflammatory links to add, I will. But I go with extreme caution on the open forums. It's a shame we can't share information and viewpoints as other members can... but that's the status quo here. Any good info I can find is always shot down on the basis of its source... which means anything not in the wide mainstream of the SAD, which is what SP promotes. I will try, nevertheless.
