I resisted for as long as I could, but this is way too popular in my house to not post. All four of the kids are walking around quoting Bon Qui Qui, "Is that what you had said?" Maybe I throw in a little quote around the house "Sacurity, Sacurity! Got to go, Got to go!" It's out of control, but extremely funny. It's Ben & Whitney's fault, they had it on their blog first and the now the kids are hooked. We were sitting at dinner and someone started to quote the skit, and between the four of them they have every word memorized. Too funny.

I've seen a lot of success with individuals using low carb diets, ie. South Beach, Atkins to lose a significant amount of weight. I've seen a bit about the Mediterranean diet, which has a pretty high amount of calories from fat, lately as well.
However, there is concern about the long term effects of diets like these. I think that is due to the fact that they are so different than what we were taught growing up what a diet should look like. We are so afraid of diets that are high fat diets. This is a very interesting article that adds a bit of evidence that these high fat diets maybe aren't as dangerous as maybe what we thought they were.
I personally feel the big secret to diet actually is activity. That can fix a lot of things, but I wouldn't ever recommend one diet over another. I know what works for me, and I think I have a pretty good idea of what I need to do long term. That's my personal discovery.
I really enjoy this website as well. Read stuff from it almost every day.
