It flies effectively but once it hits the ground it moves much like Agrajag did and that is not very gracefully. It also cannot take off again unless picked up and given a throw, I think that the bat that inspired it does not need a human to come by and throw it each time it needs to fly. I guess the use case is that it does a flight mission, lands, then crawls to a hiding spot and dies there while it uploads its data store and waits to be picked up.

Based on your statement, it seems that the normal levels of fat are too high (for weight loss) when coupled with normal/elevated levels of carbs. Seems then that higher levels of fat coupled with lower levels of carbs are better for losing weight (and by extension maintaining weight). Isn't that what the study shows? Why is it that you feel the study does not provide much useful information?

I was making it to you though, mainly as a retort to how cheap and fast hot pockets are. My tone was inflammatory, much more so than necessary, for that I apologize. I agree that cooking and eating healthy are time consuming, I disagree that the hot pocket is a viable (equivalent health-wise) option.

Fat is good for you, it is the bread that is the problem. You didn't catch the part about the 6 egg omelets? Guess what, egg yolks are loaded with fat, which is energy, which is good for you. Not sure why people still have a fat aversion, there is more than ample evidence that the problem is the carbs (now including this new study) that anyone with even a modicum of analytic ability should know that carbs are bad and fat is good.

stop it with the whole grains. Whole grains are still just grains. Maybe with a tiny bit of nutrients and some fiber that the refined don't have but still produce a tremendous glycemic load. The point of the study is that whole grains should be avoided. All carbs should be avoided. Don't attempt to conflate grains with meat and vegetables, they don't belong in the same class of food, that is what the study under discussion meant to separate.
