We’ve all heard it—cut out carbs to lose weight. Carbs turn straight into sugar. Only eat complex carbs. Never have bread! Put down the cookie, NOW. Sure, there may be some truth to the effects of certain carbs, but the hype has gone far beyond helpful and into the land of false advertisements.
Which came first? The chicken or the egg? The egg or the chicken? Undoubtedly, you have heard this conondrum before. But have you ever wondered why? Some of you wonder why anyone would eat a filthy chicken or its eggs in the first place. Others, just the opposite - they love it and would eat it daily! In the wake of the never ending firestorm of commercials, books, ads, etc., you have been overwhelmed by the sheer ability of the billion dollar ad companies to tell that what you were told you were supposed to hear and is absolutely the answer to your problem.
