    I wonder how the test would have ended up if some of the subjects had engaged in HIIT cardio a few minutes after eating the McMuffin breakfast sandwich. Because, I routinely eat that before a hard ride for the extra carbs (since I hardly eat carbs with my usual Paleo foods).

    Kind of a dumb article. They come down on a breakfast sandwich with carbs, protein and fats, then suggest alternatives with carbs, protein and fats.

    The more I work on my own blood lipid issues and research, the more I realize a few things. First, everyone is different. Second, complex carbs may not be too bad for you if you eat a strict low saturated fat diet. Third, healthy fats aren't bad for you. Fourth, saturated fats aren't bad for you if you eat a low carb diet.

    The biggest problem for most folks is a diet that combines saturated fats and simple carbs. Deadly.

    I'd like to see the results again, but this time with homemade breakfast sandwiches made with unadulterated ingredients.

    For example, buns NOT jacked up with fructose/glucose, massive amounts of sodium and oil sources better off in a mechanical device.

    Ham that is truly low fat (the one we buy is 2% fat) and also not jacked up with chemical crap to give it a shelf life of years, lol.

    Eggs that don't come in a milk carton, but in shells.

    Cheese that doesn't come from the same factory where they make plastics. icon_lol.gif

    Well, I'm already a vegan so this doesn't rattle my world too much...

    My $.02

    Showmes post above is pretty much right on. Many of us and our friends and family have serious risk factors for heart disease and stroke. Two of my buds in particular avoided the embolism educed heart attack or stroke coming their way by going vegan and shedding excess body fat. Their CRP was 2.5x the scale. Now below 1 on the C-reactive protein scale and total cholesterol below 100 where the arterial plack build up starts reversing.

    Because of CRAP from places like McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Five Guys, offer up....pick your fast food....we have a health care PANDEMIC on the horizon.

    Saturated fat with free radicals (fried foods), and fast sugars (pop, sucrose, etc.) with a lack of exercise (particularly weight bearing exercise) is a prescription for an early DEATH, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diseases of aging.

    Here in Texas, the culture is TOO MUCH, TOO FRIED, TOO MUCH SUGAR, at the wrong time of day.

    Dallas, TX is the stroke capitol of The World.
    Houston, TX is the heart attack capitol of The World.
    Arlington, TX is The World's fattest city.

    Don't believe me? Go visit Walmart and look at the folks on the fat carts.
