    I'm going to get this one started because the YouTube comments were quite entertaining. It really amazes me how people are completely unable to look around and assess their food environment. Not only am I consumer of both restaurant and grocery store food but I also make a living looking at what people eat and I've yet to meet a fat guy/gal that ate a low fat diet that was high in carbohydrates.

    The haters seem to have mainly divided into two camps, the "this is all wrong, you don't know what you're talking about, also Rip is fat" people, and the "I already knew all that, this is basic information!" crowd. They don't seem to be putting much energy into fighting each other though. Maybe they need more carbs.

    Saying the word carb on the internet is like saying the word "Trump" in California

    In your experience, can fat people maintain a high-carb, low-fat, presumably high-protein diet long-term? Arithmetically, it works. I just wonder if hunger is going to ruin it. Maybe high-protein satiates and helps with compliance.

    I note with myself, all carbs are not equal. Oatmeal doesn't leave me hungry but ice cream does (sweet tooth). I've had success losing bodyfat with low-carb, but if high-carb, low-fat, high-protein works I'll try it.
