This article pretty much sounds like it was written 20 years ago before the complex relationships between fats and metabolism were known. The latest research indicates the our bodies don't digest cheese like other fats. You can't ignore Athkinson's work forever. Personally I have achieved 10% body fat at my advanced age by eliminating processed food, mostly carbohydrates, but as a experiment did not eliminate cheese. Besides the low body fat I have a cholesterol level that is off the chart (low) for my age group and I don't have a regular "cardio" workout to burn fat.
