Translation:She doesn't eat bacon; she is on a diet.
I agree with all opinions on this (that it is not "bacon" in the true sense of the ingredient). What pains me is the misconception that fat or bacon are eliminated when you are on a diet. Fat does not make one fat. Fat is your best source of energy and the body uses it. Carbohydrates is not usable and is stored as fat - that is why we have an epidemic of obesity in North America - we cut out all the good fats (meat/ fatty meat, butter, cream, eggs, oils) and eat pancakes, cereals, doughnuts and add extra sugar to everything!! Sorry about the rant and I resolve to study hard so that I can explain this concept in French ;) !
I completely agree Elsa.
It is more than that, natural fat is required by the body and especially the brain. Whole milk, cream,butter eggs etc are delicious and required for a healthy body. Like everything always in moderation....:)
Manufactured replacements do harm.
Carbs should always be complex, and are your energy source, if you eat too many they will convert to FAT!!! It is easy really.....
