In class on the lipids due date, you will be expected to be present to debate the following: "Is it healthier to have a high fat diet (over 30% of the calories from fat) or a low fat diet (less than 10% of the calories from fat)? 
Prior to coming to class, with the help of your instructor, you will need to pick a side and research that side.  Google Scholar and the Parkland Library will be the best locations to gain information for your debate.  Come to class with your reputable sources with valid and reliable nutrition information in hand.  We will take a vote in the end and find out which side won the debate!   
For consideration, you will also need to submit two links from reputable sources that support your side PRIOR TO the debate.  Copy and paste them below with the following information for each of the two articles :
The name of the articles (x2)
The link to the articles (x2)
The overall summary of the articles (in your own words for each of the articles)

Choice: High fat (over 30%) is healthier.

“Comparison of high-fat and high-protein diets with a high-carbohydrate diet in insulin-resistant obese women”
This article was an overview of an experiment that took place to compare diets high in fat (Atkins) and high in protein to diets that were high in carbohydrates and a diet high in the carbohydrate fiber specifically. The 96 women in the experiment were insulin resistant and had a BMI over 27 kg/m2. The results showed that all of the diets helped in the categories of weight, waist size, triglyceride and insulin levels but the high fat and protein diet has the most effect on these things. The high fat diet was a very successful weight loss tool if the body’s lipid levels are monitored, maybe best if used for the short term.
