When Pat Robertson isn’t busy hating gays and Muslims, he’s also apparently a dietician. Studying history, failing to become a lawyer and running a televangelist network is all you need these days to talk about nutrition, and Robertson has been lecturing his fans on the need to stack up on carbs. According to Robertson, who spoke on the ‘700 Club’, a low-carb diet “violates the principles that God set down”. If you’re concerned about the lack of science, don’t worry. Robertson explained that “the carbs are the fire that burn everything completely”.
So for everyone trying to lose weight out there, just get on the carbs, as they ‘burn everything’!
