Science Supports Carb Wars

The biochemistry always supported this.  That is why I had my gestalt moment when I read Dr. Atkin's book so many years ago.  Carbs are preferentially burned by the body over fat.  Excess carbs are stored as fat, even preferentially over excess dietary fat. 

The government food pyramid is just another ad for the corporations that pay them.
