They told us not to eat fat because it would make us fat. But now they’re telling us they were wrong. The fat wasn’t the problem. It was the carbs and sugars we ate instead of the fat. The problem can be traced back to the U.S. Senate, in 1976. (From now on, I’m eating nothing but pasta and white bread. I want to be ready when they change their minds again.)
