Personal trainer Amanda Comstock has released a potentially controversial article “Myths about Fat Loss”, bringing some cause for concern, as the article may upset Government agency that set the accepted guidelines of a healthy diet.

The 946 word article examines the high points and low points of Fat Loss, in the pursuit of providing trustworthy advice for health and fitness enthusiasts. In a somewhat typical manner though, a certain element of the article is set to spark discontent amongst USDA American food pyramid.

Below is a portion of the piece, which neatly exemplifies the controversial element:

Low fat diets for fat loss do not work for fat loss. Higher protein and fat diets have been shown to be far more effective than low fat/high carb diets for several reasons: Lower insulin levels, greater satiety/fullness in individuals, and lower inflammation in the body. But most of all, on a high carb diet the body relies on glucose for energy rather than fat stores. In addition, excessive carbs eaten will be stored as body fat. High carb diets also actually make people crave even more carbs due to extreme fluxuations in insulin levels. High carb diets lead to insulin resistance, which leads to diabetes. Instead, reduce carbohydrates, especially grains and sugar. Enjoy a higher protein, higher fat diet for fat loss and better health overall. Protein sources should be of high quality sources such as organic or pasture raised meats, eggs, wild fish, and grass fed dairy. Fat sources should be nuts, seeds, avocado, grass fed beef, coconut oil, and a high quality fish oil. And of course, enjoy lots of fresh vegetables. This diet will be particularly effective for belly fat loss.

Amanda Comstock, says “Of course I never sets out to intentionally upset anybody. The aim of my articles is first and foremost to inform my readers what most the most common myths about fat loss are and what might be holding them back.. It is critical, however, that we stay dedicated to our true voice.

Although our “Myths about Fat Loss” might unsettle the Government agency that sets the accepted guidelines of healthy diet., my duty is to my readers. I believe it’s more important to lay down the facts, than to please everyone. Which is notoriously difficult to do.”

Although there has been no backlash as of yet, the possibility exists as the article undermines the commonly believed “best practices” for weight loss and healthy eating.. has been a provider of in depth articles in the health and fitness market for 8 years. has stated the future aims for the website are to provide consumers with more confidence in a health and fitness market where it’s easy to be led astray.. So hopes any controversy will pass quickly and re-emphasizes no offence is or was intended.
