I have no idea where you get this false idea from. The typical american western diet is both high in high GI carbs AND bad fat. Specifically trans fatty acids. How the hell could it not be with how well the fast food industry does? And most of the foods they sell at mcdonalds is high in transfatty acids because of the way they are prepared (deep fried in bad cooking oil). Think man, think.
The default American diet these days is high-GI high carb, and is usually low(-ish) fat to boot.
Are you fucking kidding me dude? Margarine sales have not gone down in the past 10 years, they have gone UP. And margarine consists mainly of hydrogenated vegetable oil. Many people buy it because it is cheaper than butter. Many buy it because they believe it is healthier. Either way, many buy it, thus consume it in obvious large quantities. This is also the reasons for the high fat studies showing disease correlation, which you do not like. Because of these types of fats as well as refined carbs.
I don't agree. Bad fats are not in massive excess in the average American diet, while bad carbs are.
