Fried breakfast is healthiest start to day, say scientists

Here. You smoke this, and be sure to get the smoke deep down into your lungs.

A fried breakfast is good for you?


It would appear that my favourite Woody Allen movie, Sleeper, is becoming truer by the day. Let's hope that steak, cream pies, and hot fudge are similarly exonerated in the next couple of years.

Then they'll be saying that nicotine is good for you.

Wait, they already have!

Having spent quite a bit of time keeping to low carb/high protein diets this news isn't really a massive surprise to me. Certainly in my own experience i feel far healthier all round and find it easier to lose/keep a stable weight when maintaining a high protein/fat diet. My father, against prevalent medical advice, switched to this kind of low carb/high protein diet after being diagnosed with type II diabetes. The result? All diabetic symptoms disappear and there is no sign of the condition when he goes for his regular checks at the hospital. There really does seem to be a lot of evidence that the orthodox high carb diet = healthiest is maybe not quite so true as many believe.

Yes, in the article they talk about beans being part of the 'healthy' breakfast. I would tend to want to replace that with cooked tomatoes, but it is good that 'low-carb' is beginning to get a decent press, after the last few years of hysterical anti-Atkins nonsense - fed by the high-carb food industry and their friends in Big Pharma, who like selling us all of those life-long diabetes treatments.

Whoops! Am I being cynical again? :-)
