The Reason You're Fat = Carbs and Insulin Resistance

Later this year, I'll do a series on carbohydrates, because eating them is the true reason we are fat. The "Fat Makes You Fat" lie is being exposed by countless medical professionals, yet I get emails every day from those of you who fear eating fat. Comedian and Nutrition Ninja, Tom Naughton, really shines the light on the Fat Myth in his move "Fat Head." I ordered the DVD and I'll give you guys my review when it gets here, but from the preview clips on youtube, it looks like a kick-ass film. I'll put some links below to get the DVD, but he posted an OUTSTANDING, 5-part lecture on Carbs and Insulin Resistance (the best lecture I've ever seen on the subject). Make sure to watch his complete lecture, but I'm going to embed my favorite part below where he cites a study in which fat mice STARVED to death WITHOUT burning their body fat due to the body's insulin response.
