The fact is that excessive consumption of any kind of calorie has contributed to the widening of the American waistband. Admittedly, however, an overwhelming proportion of the American diet now comes from processed food, food that largely comprises refined carbohydrates. And thanks in part to misdirection by food marketers, the public is more confused than ever about what constitutes a healthy diet. Are carbs really evil, and if not, which kinds should we be eating?
