11. Yes, they are very similar.

It's changed our lives completely. My spouse lost 50 lbs without any hunger at all and eating all that he wanted of the foods we evolved to eat, not the foods that are now promoted as healthy. He's off blood pressure meds that he was on for 30 years. Since I no longer have any evidence of diabetes and am no longer depressed, life seems good again!

The more you research, once you start thinking about the grand experiment performed on the US population and unfortunately the other countries that have followed suit, the more you discover the truth about the bill of goods we've been sold about diet. The low fat meme didn't come from science, but from politicians and others.... Ancel Keynes, who supposedly studied the effects of dietary fat on humans took the data from 22 countries and when he couldn't make the facts align with his hypothesis, threw out the data from all but 7 countries to try to prove that a low fat diet is healthy! That's not science! No one even questioned what he did, just allowed that "study" to inform what we were told about diet and health since the 50's. The study was called the 7 countries study!!! There were 22 countries and we should have been told about them all and the "results" would have been far different and we could have prevented the epidemic of obesity and the majority of the auto-immune diseases that are now rampant. Here's a great video from a swedish doctor:
