Ah, yes, member dues. Hadn't thought about that nifty little revenue stream. I am officially suspicious
On NT, besides what has been mentioned, how much saturated fat is healthful? Can there be too much of a good thing? The answer to that question is usually "yes." It's probably "yes" in this case too. So how much is too much? I'd like to see a buck or three on that topic as well.
I have often wondered this as well. Sometimes it seems like her motto is "more is more", yk? I'm all for butter, but come on now . . . although that too is situation specific. Maybe some need lots and others need a little. I have been following the added fat rec's in Garden of Eating (I think they say 2 tbsp of added fat) and eating grassfed beef which should be lower in sat fat.
I know this sounds incredibly lazy, but sometimes I get tired of all the research, not knowing who to believe, and just wish that someone would tell me what to eat so I could stop obsessing about food
. Not to mention drop the extra 30lbs clinging to my frame
Glad to hear so much dissent from her bf'ing info. I have often wondered how others on this board felt about that. It made me so angry that it kept me away from TF for a whole year after I found out about it. I spent that time as a vegan a la Eat to Live. Gosh, I wish I had looked at some different TF stuff first and saved myself that time! As LLL leader, I was just soooooo angry, on so many levels. Glad to hear others feel the same!
