The Switch Back to Fat Diet
If you are overweight, diabetic and prone to Metabolic Syndrome and heart disease, you are a victim of carbohydrate poisoning! The most killing diseases facing us today are a consequence of eating too much carbohydrate. This is easily corrected by restricting carbohydrates to fewer than 60 grams per day and emphasizing them at the evening meal – the Carbohydrate Hour.
Don’t blame your brain; overeating is not psychological – it’s not a behavior issue. People eat excess carbohydrates because of a metabolic imbalance created by eating excess carbohydrates – and eating them at the wrong time. When the metabolic pathway is balanced – replacing carbs with fat – hunger is no longer an issue and excess body fat is burned for energy.
For most of man’s 50 million years on earth, we have lived off the flesh and fat of other animals. Man was a hunter and our eating habits were largely carnivorous. Then came agriculture and more recently food processing. Then along comes sugar – the killer carbohydrate. Sugar makes us fat. Sugar depletes B-vitamins. Sugar is an anti-nutrient, and all starchy foods – like breakfast cereals – are servings of sugar.
Along with air, food is fuel. How we look and feel depends on how we “fuel” our brain, heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, muscles and bones. Optimum body functioning and healthy longevity depend on what we choose to eat; whether we provide the essential building blocks our bodies need.
If we eat too much of the wrong type of food, we fatten and die before our time. Their are three things we can put in our mouth – the macronutrients: fat, carbs, and protein. The Switch Diet favors fat over carbs – grades and limits carbs – and emphasizes complete animal protein.
Fat and protein are needed to maintain and regenerate our cells, tissues, and organs while keeping blood sugar in a narrow, healthy range. Though included in the Switch Diet, carbohydrates – including fiber – are kept to a minimum. Most people should restrict carbohydrates to fewer than 60 grams per day.
Carbohydrates (carbs) are sugars by another name. Healthy-sounding broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini all turn into sugar in the gut. Carbs are found in grain and in all grain products – and in all floury and sweet products. Beets, bagels, beans, bread, buns, cereals, cookies, chips, donuts, French fries, fruit, fruit juices, pasta, and soft drinks all provide carbohydrates.
For the maintenance and regeneration of the body, the Switch Diet emphasizes complete animal protein and high octane natural fats to provide energy for – among other things – the digestion and assimilation of protein.
The more saturated fats – found in beef tallow, butter, the tropical oils, and in meat, eggs, lard, fish, and cheese – are the cornerstone of the Switch Diet. Other than olive oil and high quality sesame, vegetable oils – like highly refined soybean and Canola – should be strictly avoided.
The Switch Diet is the best lifestyle for weight loss, disease prevention, and recovery from disease. The body will cure itself if carbohydrates are restricted and high biological value protein and natural dietary fat are amply provided.
On the Switch Diet, the overweight slim down and the skinny put on weight. The Switch Diet offers strength and energy for life – and it’s simple to follow. There’s nothing easier or more nutritious to cook for breakfast than scrambled eggs and omelets – and eggs can and should be eaten everyday. (And don’t forget the high quality bacon!)
Because the first meal of the day must emphasize fat and protein, eggs are a great choice. Most of us need about 30 grams of protein before noon. Good quality eggs – along with organ meat – provide the highest biological value protein. If you eat these high value foods before noon, you will not need to eat as much the rest of the day.
Mixing fuels is a mistake. Our bodies react adversely – plaque up – if we mix fuels. Since fats are energy dense, don’t raise blood sugar, and are an important constituent of our cell membranes, they are the wiser choice. Fats provide satiety, deliver fat-soluble vitamins, and satisfy the energy needs of the body.
Your body can only burn one fuel at a time; sugar or fat. If you restrict carbohydrates to the evening meal, your body has the opportunity to burn stored fat. If you eat too many carbs and spread them out throughout the day, your body will have to burn sugar (glucose) and make fat. Your stored fat will be locked up. As Gary Taubes wrote in Good Calories, Bad Calories, this results in the “persistent clamour of hunger.”
On the Switch Diet, your body converts from a sugar-burning machine to a fat-burning machine. Stored, surplus body fat is being burned off for energy. As long as you restrict carbohydrates to the evening meal, you can eat as much high quality fat and protein as you like.
On the Switch Diet, there is no need for routine snacking or eating more than two or three meals a day. (Eating five small meals a day will result in the digestive organs getting no rest which can lead to a variety of digestive tract ailments.)
Overweight is caused by overeating carbohydrates – resulting in fat promotion and fat storage. Overweight people have a “disturbed carbohydrate metabolism;” eliminating and/or restricting carbohydrates to 60 grams or less corrects this metabolic imbalance.
On the Switch Diet, you don’t count calories; you restrict carbs. You can eat up to 3,000 calories or more each day and still lose weight. What you will do is restrict the carbohydrates to no more than 60 grams per day and – in on most days – eat them during the evening meal.
A high fat diet promotes weight loss – fat burning – and is heart-healthy. Dangerous blood fats – triglycerides – go down, and so called good HDL cholesterol goes up. Because your blood sugar is in balance, you gain energy, cheerfulness, self confidence – and great health.
Our bodies are designed to thrive on complete animal protein and natural fat. We are suffering today with obesity and diabetes because we have increased our consumption of carbohydrates, especially the milled and highly refined variety. On the Switch Diet, we switch back to fat – ending hunger and persistent food cravings.
In truth, no carbohydrate is required in the diet. Our distant ancestors survived and advanced for tens of thousands of years without bread, Cheerios, or pasta. Carbohydrates – not fat – make people fat and create food cravings that keep people fat.
You can live on hamburger, bacon, eggs, steak, chicken, fish, cheese and green salads and other vegetables. (Fruit in moderation.) For breakfast you can eat as many eggs as you like – and don’t forget the bacon or lamb chops. Enjoy rich cream sauces on your vegetables, full fat dressing on your salads and butter on your steak.
The Switch Diet will change your life. You’ll never go hungry. You’ll feel on top of the world. You’ll lose inches as well as pounds. When you burn fat as a fuel you are moving toward health, slimness, stabilized blood sugar, lower triglycerides, increased HDL, and energy throughout the day.
Manufactured by the pituitary gland, fat metabolizing hormone (FMH) is only present when carbohydrates are absent or restricted – to 60 grams or less per day. By cutting back on carbohydrates, FMH is released into the bloodstream telling the body to break down and burn fat as a fuel.
Overweight is caused by overeating carbohydrates. Low calorie diets fail because nobody wants to endure semi-starvation. Low fat, high carbohydrate diets fail because they raise blood sugar levels and the excess carbohydrates can only be used by the body for one thing: To make fat.
Virtually all overweight people have one thing in common: hyperinsulinism – too much circulating insulin. If you eliminate or restrict the foods that call for insulin – carbohydrates – you will burn fat for energy and lose weight without hunger.
The physical, mental, and emotional lows of impaired blood sugar control give way to an upsurge in mental and physical energy. This new found zest and well being isn’t just because you have lost pounds or inches – it’s the result of putting you metabolism back into a healthy functioning balance. Depression is often a symptom of impaired blood sugar control – metabolic imbalance.
You can go from depressed, defeated, lethargic, and looking older than your age to energetic, youthful, and self confident – simply by restricting (or eliminating) carbohydrates and turning your body into an optimum functioning fat-burning-machine. If you are still starting your day with Honey Nut Cheerios for breakfast, you better get crackin!

LA Times story on December 20, 2010, “A reversal on carbs,” said: “a growing number of top nutritional scientists blame excessive carbohydrates — not fat — for America’s ills. They say cutting carbohydrates is the key to reversing obesity, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and hypertension.” Apparently “the switch back to fat” is underway…
