Eat Like A Swede

Perfect follow-up to the previous post: Swedes soon the slimmest people in the Western world?

We win!  Wait a minute...
As Dr. Eenfeldt notes, Sweden is in the middle of a Low-Carb, High Fat diet revolution.  Complete with butter shortages, sadly:

"Also, she added, many diets such as LCHF (low-carb high-fat) are also advocating the use of real butter instead of margarine and other light products, at the same time as there are fewer dairy farmers producing these products in Sweden."

(You'll note the thinnest country in that list also has the second-highest dairy consumption. France is the highest.)

One can just look at the US results to see how well the high-carb, low-fat protocol has been working in the United States.
