Could Ivanka Trump Become the First Lady of Low Carb?

One of the bright sides of the Obamas leaving the White House is the end of Michelle's misguided Let's Move low-fat chocolate milk solutions to obesity, diabetes and other chronic diseases associated with metabolic mayhem.

I like Michelle Obama and believe she meant well, but her campaign was a dismal failure.

White House vegetable garden aside, the nation's school lunches are as unhealthy and unpopular as ever and children's waistlines continue to widen on the high carb American diet pushed by big food interests like Kellogg's and Nestlé.

Ivanka Trump, on the other hand, may be far more effective in promoting good health by modeling the success of low-carb diets and undemonizing saturated fat.

The mother of three young children is renowned for her trim figure, which she largely attributes to eating whole foods and few carbs.

Excerpted from EAT THIS, NOT THAT
Though Ivanka's personal views on dietary fat are not totally clear, a clue may be deduced from an article on her personal brand's website, written by Dr. Nancy Simpkins:
As for fats, the verdict has changed. The long-standing belief that “low fat” equals healthier has been disproven. Recent research has shown that healthy fats, such as avocados or nuts, keep you full longer and are beneficial to your blood vessels.
That's right. Not only is the health value of eating low-fat a "belief," it is a "disproven" belief.

The Loquacious Lowcarbivore suspects the woman who is so perfectionistic she poses her family in white does not let a controversial paragraph like that slip by on her website without her approval.

Although Donald Trump's love affair with fast food has captured most of the press so far, we await the deluge of media stories on Ivanka Trump's more enlightened way of eating and hope it helps tip the scale in favor of science based dietary guidelines.
