He one of my examples of science having establish paradims
that resist change, except after being repeatabled challenged by the unorthodox.

A year and a half ago I had Extremely high Blood Presure, I Blood was taken and evaluated.

5'10" - 36" Waist
BP 140/100-160/118 - Yes! Critical
Cloresterol -231 -trigliceride 323
Weight 212 - Fat 30%
Caloric intake 1800

My Docter prescribed 3 different pills for B.P. and Choresterol. I was to be on then forever. Against my doctors advice, and dominate scientific culture I went on Atkins. Example food for the day- 6-8 pieces of bacon and 3 eggs for breakfast, Seafood Bisque for lunch or Hooter wings (naked & wet). Blackened Steak Sald for dinner. I like Fat portion of steak because they have the most flavor.

I quit taking the medicine because of the side effects
Blood work was redone last month-

32" waist
B.P 120/80 - Excellent
Cloresterol 189 -trigliceride 100 -Ration 3.2 - Excellent
Weight 187 - 10% Bodyfat
Caloric intake 2200-2500

I have actuall regained muscular form and definition,
yes the old "6-pack".

My Doctor still has a hard time believing, but is beginnign to ask me more questions, and is seeing
things a little different.

These results are being repeated all over America, yet most science dietitians do not believe the results. They attack them as " a calorie is a calorie" and "a high fat diet is dangerous" without questioning their paradim about fat intake and current diet norms based on evidence. They ignore it!

Why? Is it really Science they are believing or orthodoxy!
