Dr. Davis has a nice post (link here) about common errors Atkins dieters make. I'm not an Atkins follower, despite being categorized that way by people who are afraid of fat and nutritionally brainwashed by the misinformed. Dr. Davis makes some excellent points. I too need to eat less bacon - it's become like a food group to me, and I don't want gastrointestinal cancer, so I'll cut down on it. He's said, as I have said many times (and Michael Pollan has too) "We should consume less meat, more vegetables and other plant-sourced foods." I concur completely.
On the over-consumption of dairy, I've virtually eliminated dairy from my diet except for aged cheeses and butter. I think I'm moderating these intakes very well, and my Hemoglobin A1c testifies to that. I do miss the yogurt though...
Excessive caloric intake and weight gain is not an issue for me personally. 204 before vacation. 213 after vacation. 207 last night after dinner. 206 at 11am today after bacon & eggs... darn... there's that bacon again!
OK... less bacon going forward. =)
