Helena, I'm particularly interested in your views of this poll. What's happening in Sweden?

Soon the whole world will become Primal and we can crush the agricultural industry.

Good for the Swedes. Now we just need to do something about the dreaded food pyramid.

I used to think that westerners' diet is low carb because when they want to eat, they say, "I want to eat chicken with rice", while here we say, "I want to eat rice with chicken".

This just shows that most westerners eat their starch, whether it's rice, bread or potatoes, automatically without thinking about it. If you don't think about it, you're likely to overeat. The other problem is the junk food that is so pervasive. As well, the government guidelines which preach low fat have increased the number of carbs in the normal diet way beyond what people need for maintenance.
