Butt Naked Bacon / Evil Carbs

Folks: a truly great website: Bacon Unwrapped. The website is a “a celebration of the deliciously sinful strip of cured pork belly.” Heroic!

Additionally, here’s a great piece in the (mainstream) Scientific American: “Carbs Against Cardio: More Evidence that Refined Carbohydrates, not Fats, Threaten the Heart.”

Eat less saturated fat: that has been the take-home message from the U.S. government for the past 30 years. But while Americans have dutifully reduced the percentage of daily calories from saturated fat since 1970, the obesity rate during that time has more than doubled, diabetes has tripled, and heart disease is still the country’s biggest killer. Now a spate of new research, including a meta-analysis of nearly two dozen studies, suggests a reason why: investigators may have picked the wrong culprit. Processed carbohydrates, which many Americans eat today in place of fat, may increase the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease more than fat does—a finding that has serious implications for new dietary guidelines expected this year.

Praise the truth, brother. Here is just a small sampling of my bacon stats.

    Wow!

    So that means I have been on “auto-pilot” for the past decade? Actually this a complete lie; I “revolted” in late `87 when Jim Garner had to do TV spots to save the meat industry b/c some guy had 5LBS of undigested meat in his colon (this is Yucky! finger in my throat). I continued to pound the burger anyway.

    I POUND a high-fat diet. No Joke; literally POUND it! Bacon, hamburger @ 80/20 NOT that 93/7 horse-sh*t, then eggs. My Quiche Lorraine would be something that I would get arrested for. And the spinach salad has BACON in it! As well, those onions in there don’t just heal your heart of everything on this planet – they make you breathe fire!

    I can’t eat chicken so we’re done there (Oh I can be polite and eat it at YOUR house – but it ain’t what makes my train roll down the tracks @ home).

    But then, I commit the biggest “sin” of all and pound in garbanzo beans, refried beans, olives, cheese (of all forms mostly from France and Belgium), then so more olives, and then GOD FORBID IT! eat butter!

    On top of daily raw vegetables (and, oh YEAH MAN tomatoes!! – oooh that makes me fall out of the primal club – after all these things come from the “Nightshade” family, WTF is up w/ that?), and occasional 15 grain wheat bread?

    And now I take, on top of all that, I am taking FAT pills?

    I would have been hung for my atrocities. I guess it is wisdom to keep your mouth SHUT! (pun WAS intended)

    Hey why is it that I always opt for the LATTER of these 2 choices, described in what follows? (Was I expecting a different outcome from the same experiment, or ~what? Didn’t Einstein call that being “CRAZY”?)

    “Better to be thought a fool/idiot/really, really STOOPID idiot, than to open your mouth and remove ALL doubt” (really big, wide, super wide grin here…)

    I just found this; I love this song!

    Honestly; could you ever get your “pipes” to go this high? This was also played in the movie “Lost Boys” – which by the way, the French guy who composed some of those songs was the baddest k-A composer of all time…

    After reading this blog and the comments, I just had to play a song I originally saw on “The Lloyd Thaxton Show” in about 1964 called “Bread and Butter” by the Newbeats.

    This is off your own blog site; ERGO; it must be certified n’est-ce pas?

    ???

    (Yeah, BUTTER!!)

    Iluvatar, just watched that movie above from 1964, and rolling all over the floor…was pretty fun and funny, but a comment below the video really had me LMAO. Hardrockerofsoccer’s comment did it to me..”I used to think this was the Brave Little Toaster song. He sings like his balls haven’t dropped yet.” From the size of these guys, I would say they weren’t getting much bread or butter..they all look like 5″6″ at best and just maybe, all of 135 pounds, soaking wet, that is.

    Clarification:

    “…I would have been hung for my atrocities. I guess it is wisdom to keep your mouth SHUT! (pun WAS intended)”

    Reason?

    B/c if it wasn’t, what was in your mouth would be in full view (always a frightening scenario), -AND!- it would probably fall out and be evidence by the food police/Nazis – darn it!! They can’t get it once you have swallowed… (heh heh heh heh heh heh; a sinister grin here…)

    Done.

    @ Karen:

    Dude!@

    It’s ~just a song.

    You can’t actually EAT a song (it can only eat you).

    Listen to “bread & butter”; then you make a choice (my choice was at the end)

    We keep writing by each other.

    But hey; you are WAY MORE BUSY than I am. Plus; I would really (really) not want to get banned by this site… I am learning a lot – & would prefer to keep it that way (does that sound like begging or WHAT?) ><
