What I have written on diet prior to 2015 is based upon the consensus, rather than science; what I term “tobacco science”.  There is a fundamental conflict between the goal of science and that of corporations.  The article first on this page is a current, and I recommend that you visit concise diet and the pages in the Recommended healthful diet
There is a weight-appetite-metabolism regulatory system which tightly controls weight.  For the person with a long-term weight problem (over 2 years) that system has reset to that person's recent weight, and it will function to restore the weight, even over a half-dozen years to its set point.  This is what has been termed as the "yo-yo diet".  For more on this and how to end run that system go to

This system explains why those on a traditional diet do not have weight problems, and those on a western high-carbs-sugar diet who tightly control their weight also don't get fat and diabetic.

There is grass root revulsion to the current corporate health industry, with pharma doing the most harm.  The best account of bad pharma is by Danish Prof. Peter Gotzsche in his 2013 book Deadly Medicine and Organised Crime:  How big pharma has corrupted healthcare.  Prof. Gotzsche’s book has won the British Medical Book Award given by the BMA (British Medical Association which is comparable to our AMA).  Further endorsement comes from the Richard Smith former Editor-in-Chief of the BMJ (British Medical Journal) and Drummond Rennie, Deputy Editor of JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association) which are 2 of the 4 leading English medical journal.   The President’s Lecture on YouTube by Harvard Professor Marcia Angell confirms Prof. Gotzsche’s book. Pharma is worse than you can imagine.
