That’s not true, Annie! When most people exercize, they overcompensate later when they eat (I note you mentioned cake!). Also the calories we burn exercizing do not come out of our fat stores. The fat just stays there. They come out of glycogen stored in the liver. If you like to eat fat and sugar, your glycogen stores will be quickly replaced because glycogen is made from blood glucose. I’m a diabetic (type 1) so I understand the science rather well!
The particular concentration camp the Aussie doctor was talking about is the one Australians are (scandalously) currently keeping their refugees in. None of them are subject to hard labour (in fact they do no work at all) but they have very limited food rations and this is what caused him to make the comment. He was castigated in the press for making it, but medical professionals agree that the science behind it is good.
It is difficult to cut fat and sugar combinations out of the diet, because they are addictive, especially chocolate, but it is the healthiest thing to do.
I understand that this message hasn’t been put about publicly as much as it should have been. Nobody wants to hear it, for starters, but it is the truth. I have a BMI of 21, a difficult thing for a diabetic to achieve, so for me, certainly it works.
