Cutting fat from our diet didn't let us lose weight since it's carbs that fatten people up as well as livestock. Cutting fats would lower cholesterol, that's about all.
Another reason RR and I low carb is my sugar was sneaking up and diabetes has reared it's ugly head in my family in the past. I don't want to have to deal with that disease. When low carbing my sugar remains in the safe range and I lose weight. There was a Dr in TN who had diabetics control their diabetes using diet alone. My BIL controlled his using diet alone for years.
I wont miss beef but I will miss pork, cheese and butter. You can see how important exercise is. When I could exercise arteriosclerosis was not a problem. Since my hip will never get better exercise will always be limited, my diet must change.
