this expert talks out of her butt. just because there is not enough quality study done, she calls it against healthy lifestyle. she says sugar is the only source of energy, completely ignoring that protein and fat have calories in them. such a shame! saturated fats plastering up arteries? where is your quality study that proves what you claim?
