Businessman Eating Steak

Any lawyer who lived through the ’80s and ’90s was hit with a barrage of messages from the government, nutrition “experts” and big consumer brands that dietary fat was the devil. We pointed the finger at fat as the cause of obesity, heart disease, diabetes and other nasty health issues. And thus began the rise of the low-fat diet craze (SnackWells, SlimFast and Baked Lay’s—Oh my!). You probably had some in your desk drawer at one time or another.

As part of the craze, food manufacturers stripped products of fat, and, to keep them tasty and appealing, they replaced it with carbohydrates from sugar, refined grains or other starches.

Turns out we cut off our nose to spite our face. Our bodies digest these refined carbohydrates and starches very quickly, affecting blood sugar and insulin levels and resulting in the dreaded weight gain and disease.
