Need help with links to good articles on fat vs carbs

Hi everyone. My Captain asked me to put a drill on about nutrition. Most of the guys on my shift at work are still into the "low fat" "carbs are good" "calories in calories out" mentality. I'll be honest I have not taken the time to look anything up on the Internet yet as I am at work. I have however gathered the info out of the level 1 training guide. I thought this would be a great place to ask for advise on how to change their outlook on fats not being bad for you like the FDA has indoctrinated Americans to think. Another important subject would be that my Chief has high cholesterol. So if anyone knows information about people with high cholesterol and eating a lower carb higher "healthy fat" diet, I would be so greatful. Thanks in advance!

Re: Need help with links to good articles on fat vs carbs

It's not so much that calories in calories out isn't true, it's just that other factors can modulate one side or the other. In other words, the equation is more complicated than simply calories consumed vs expended, although that is the core.

Re: Need help with links to good articles on fat vs carbs

There isn't a ton of evidence that would suggest calories consumed vs expended is anything other than the case. With low carb you lose glycogen quickly, possibly lose fat more readily (hotly debated), and generally decrease athletic performance. Everything is goal dependent, but I left the low carb bandwagon when I realized you need to simply eat less, work more, or take a break for awhile and try to maintain and restore your metabolism before resuming. How the calories break down seldom seems to matter. For every study that shows low carb works better on fat loss, I can go hunt for one that says the opposite. Cholesterol number may not be everything, but if you are willing to stake someone else's health on your unlicensed advice, prepare to justify giving that advice. You may want to disclaim that at the beginning to safeguard yourself. Giving health related advice and not having a license to do so concerning nutrition can hem you up in some states.
