Mark: TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH," DAY EIGHT OF

THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN WITH

NO END IN SIGHT.

THE LATEST ON THE BUDGET

IMPASSE AND HOW IT AFFECTS

YOU.

Wendy: PLUS, A NOBEL

PRIZE FOR THE SCIENTIST WHO

DISCOVERED THE SO-CALLED GOD

PARTICLE, WHAT IT IS, AND

WHY THEY BELIEVE IT OFFERS

INSIGHTS INTO THE ORIGIN OF

THE UNIVERSE.

Mark: AND EATING FAT TO

LOSE FAT.

THE SURPRISING HIGH-FAT DIET

THAT HELPED THIS MAN LOSE

180 POUNDS.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT

ON "NEWSWATCH."

AS THE BUDGET IMPASSE ENTERS

ITS SECOND WEEK, THERE IS

STILL NO SIGNS OF COMPROMISE

ON CAPITOL HILL.

GOOD EVENING, I'M MARK

MARTIN.

Wendy: AND I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

THE PRESIDENT TOLD REPORTERS

TODAY THAT HE IS WILLING TO

NEGOTIATE WITH REPUBLICANS

BUT NOT UNTIL THEY PASS A

BILL TO END THE GOVERNMENT

SHUTDOWN.

President Obama: I'M

NOT GOING TO DO IT UNTIL THE

MORE EXTREME PART OF THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY STOPS

FORCING JOHN BOEHNER TO

ISSUE THREATS ABOUT OUR

ECONOMY.

WE CAN'T MAKE EXTORTION

ROUTINE AS PART OF OUR

DEMOCRACY.

Mark: MEANWHILE, THE

REPUBLICAN-LED HOUSE SHOWS

NO SIGNS OF TAKING UP THAT

CHALLENGE AS THE COUNTRY

MOVES CLOSER TO DEFAULTING

ON ITS DEBTS.

DALE HURD HAS THE LATEST IN

TONIGHT'S TOP STORY.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA CALLED HOUSE SPEAKER

JOHN BOEHNER TODAY AND SAID,

NOPE, HE WON'T NEGOTIATE

OVER REOPENING THE

GOVERNMENT OR RAISING THE

DEBT CEILING TO PREVENT A

U.S. GOVERNMENT DEFAULT.

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A

PRESIDENT IN OUR HISTORY

THAT DID NOT NEGOTIATE OVER

THE DEBT LIMIT.

President Obama: WE'RE

NOT GOING TO NEGOTIATE OVER

THE THREAT OF ECONOMIC

CATASTROPHE.

Reporter: BUT HOUSE

REPUBLICANS SAY THAT IS

UNACCEPTABLE.

BY REFUSING TO NEGOTIATE,

HARRY REID AND THE PRESIDENT

ARE PUTTING OUR COUNTRY ON A

PRETTY DANGEROUS PATH.

I THINK IT IS

IRRESPONSIBLE FOR THE

PRESIDENT AND HIS MEN TO

EVEN TALK ABOUT DEFAULT.

THERE IS NO REASON FOR US TO

DEFAULT.

THIS IS A GAME.

KIND OF LIKE CLOSING THE

WORLD WAR II MEMORIAL.

THEY GET OUT ON TV AND SAY

WE'RE GOING TO DEFAULT.

AND THEY'RE THE ONES SCARING

THE MARKETPLACE.

Reporter: THE SOCIAL

SECURITY ADMINISTRATION

WARNED THAT IN JUST NINE

DAYS, IT WILL NO LONGER BE

ABLE TO GUARANTEE THAT

CHECKS WILL GO OUT.

NEARLY 60 MILLION AMERICANS

GET AN AVERAGE OF $280 A

WEEK IN BENEFITS.

WALL STREET IS ANXIOUSLY

WATCHING, TOO, THE MARKETS

FINISHED DOWN YESTERDAY AND

OPENED LOWER AGAIN TODAY.

SOME ANALYSTS SAY SINCE THE

CONSEQUENCES OF A DEFAULT

ARE SO BAD, WASHINGTON WON'T

LET THAT HAPPEN.

WE THINK A RESOLUTION

WILL BE REACHED BEFORE WE

EVER GET TO A DEFAULT

SITUATION ON U.S. DEBT.

Reporter: SPEAKER

BOEHNER HAS CALLED ON THE

PRESIDENT TO AGREE TO

NEGOTIATIONS ON CHANGES TO

OBAMACARE AND STEPS TO CURB

DEFICITS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THANKS, DALE.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS

FORCING A SENIOR COUPLE OUT

OF THEIR HOME BECAUSE IT

SITS ON FEDERAL PROPERTY.

JOYCE SPENCER IS 77 YEARS

OLD, AND HER HUSBAND, RALPH,

IS 80.

THE COUPLE HAS OWNED THEIR

CABIN ON NEVADA'S LAKE MEADE

SINCE THE 1970s.

ACCORDING TO KTV N IN LAS

VEGAS, PARK OFFICIALS

ORDERED THE COUPLE OUT.

THE REASON: AS LONG AS THE

GOVERNMENT IS SHUT DOWN, NO

ONE IS ALLOWED TO STAY ON

LAKE MEADE.

THE SPENCERS ARE STAYING

WITH RELATIVES.

Mark: THESE ARE THE

KINDS OF STORIES MAKING

PEOPLE SHAKE THEIR HEADS.

AND JOINING US TO TALK ABOUT

IT IS DAVID CHRISTENSEN,

DIRECTOR OF CONGRESSIONAL

AFFAIRS AT THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL.

DAVID, THERE ARE OTHER

OUTRAGEOUS STORIES.

WE'VE HEARD ABOUT SCENIC

OVERLOOKS BEING CORDONED

OFF, SO TOURISTS CAN'T PULL

OVER FOR A VIEW OF THE GRAND

CANYON OR MT. RUSHMORE.

WHAT IS GOING ON?

WELL, YOU KNOW, NO ONE

WANTS A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN,

BUT IT SEEMS LIKE PRESIDENT

OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS HAVE

BEEN PLANNING FOR THIS.

THEY THINK IT IS IN THEIR

POLITICAL INTEREST, AND THEY

ACTUALLY WANT IT TO BE AS

PAINFUL AS POSSIBLE FOR

AMERICANS TO MAKE THE

REPUBLICANS LOOK BAD.

LOOK, THE WORLD WAR II

MEMORIAL, THEY SPENT MONEY

TO RENT BARRICADES, TO PUT

BARRICADES UP TO PREVENT

WORLD WAR II VETERANS FROM

BEING ABLE TO GO IN THERE.

AND THESE HONOR FLIGHTS ARE

PLANNED UP TO A YEAR IN

ADVANCE.

WHAT THEY'RE DOING IS

SPENDING MONEY, EVEN THOUGH

THEY'RE SAYING THEY DON'T

HAVE MONEY.

IT'S LIKE PRESIDENT OBAMA

SAYING WE'LL NEGOTIATE, BUT

WE'RE NOT GOING TO NEGOTIATE

ON THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN.

Mark: WELL, NO OTHER

ADMINISTRATION HAS TAKEN A

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN TO THIS

LEVEL, ACTUALLY KICKING

PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR HOMES

AND CLOSING PRIVATE

BUSINESSES THAT LEASE PUBLIC

LAND.

YET MANY STILL BLAME

REPUBLICANS FOR THESE

THINGS.

SO IS THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION WINNING THE

P.R. WAR?

WELL, I THINK THAT WHEN

YOU LOOK AT SOME OF THE

POLLS EVEN OUT THIS WEEK,

WHETHER IT IS THE CNN POLL

OR THE PEW RESEARCH POLL,

THEY'RE SHOWING THAT

AMERICANS ARE UPSET AND

BLAME THE REPUBLICANS, AND

UPWARDS OF 60%, 61%.

BUT THEN YOU ACTUALLY SEE

THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT

AMOUNT OF BLAME FOR

DEMOCRATS, AND ACTUALLY, A

LOT OF BLAME FOR OBAMA.

AMERICANS ARE HOLDING IT

AGAINST, I THINK, BOTH

PARTIES.

ULTIMATELY WHAT THE C.R. WAS

ABOUT IN THE GOVERNMENT

FUNDING, WAS WHETHER OR NOT

OBAMACARE SHOULD GO INTO

EFFECT.

THERE ARE ALWAYS KINDS OF

PROBLEMS, RAISING YOUR

PREMIUMS AND YOUR HEALTH

CARE COSTS, ABORTION

FUNDING, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

VIOLATIONS, AND SAID NO.

THEY TRIED TO PASS THREE

DIFFERENT BILLS, TO DEFUND

IT, TO DELAY IT, OR TO GIVE

FAIRNESS TO AMERICANS THAT

THEY'RE GIVING TO CONGRESS.

THEY'VE BEEN PASSING BILLS

IN THE HOUSE TO FUND THE

VETERANS ADMINISTRATION, TO

FUND THE NATIONAL GUARD,

MUSEUMS, AND THE SENATE HAS

REJECTED EVERY ONE.

AND THE PRESIDENT KEEPS

THREATENING TO VETO.

WHY DOESN'T THE PRESIDENT

WANT TO SIGN A BILL TO FUND

WICK OR HEAD START.

THEY DON'T WANT TO

NEGOTIATE.

THE REPUBLICANS HAVE PASSED

NINE DIFFERENT BILLS, THAT

ARE SMALL BILLS, TO FUND

THINGS THAT SURELY BOTH

PARTIES SHOULD AGREE ON, AND

THEY DON'T WANT TO.

SO IN THE MEANTIME, YOU HAVE

THE ADMINISTRATION SHUTTING

DOWN THE AMBER ALERT, BUT

NOT MS. OBAMA'S OWN

WEBSITE.

IT IS TOTAL HYPOCRISY.

Mark: DAVID, ELDERLY

VETERANS WERE TURNED AWAY

FROM THE WORLD WAR II

MEMORIAL LAST WEEK, LIKE YOU

MENTIONED.

THE NATIONAL MALL IS

SUPPOSED TO BE SHUT DOWN AS

WELL, AND YET THERE WAS A

MASSIVE IMMIGRATION RALLY

ALLOWED TO GO ON AS

SCHEDULED ON THE NATIONAL

LAWN TODAY.

HOW CAN THE GOVERNMENT

JUSTIFY THIS DOUBLE

STANDARD?

I DON'T KNOW THAT THEY'RE

TRYING TO JUSTIFY IT.

I THINK THEY WANT TO PICK

AND CHOOSE WINNERS AND

LOSERS, AND THEY ARE

OBVIOUSLY WANTING TO BENEFIT

FOLKS THAT ARE IN THEIR

POLITICAL INTEREST.

YOU KNOW, AMERICANS REALLY

NEED TO -- I UNDERSTAND

THERE IS A LOT OF

FRUSTRATION.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT PARTY

YOU'RE FROM.

BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF

YOU'RE NOT NEGOTIATING, AND

IN THE MEANTIME THE

ADMINISTRATION IS

THREATENING SOCIAL SECURITY

CHECKS, WHICH THE GOVERNMENT

SHUTDOWN WON'T STOP, AND

ALLOWING PEOPLE -- YOU KNOW,

IMMIGRATION REFORM TO ATTEND

THE NATIONAL MALL, IT IS

SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT OF THE

LAW.

IT IS REALLY UNFAIR.

BUT, REALLY, THIS ISN'T NEW

NEWS.

THE AMERICANS NEED TO LET

THEIR CONGRESS AND SENATORS

KNOW, WE DON'T LIKE

OBAMACARE, FUND THE

GOVERNMENT, LET'S MOVE ON.

Mark: DAVID CHRISTENSEN

FROM THE FAMILY RESEARCH

COUNCIL.

THANKS FOR BEING HERE.

Wendy: FAMILY HAS A NEW

MEANING IN CALIFORNIA.

THE STATE CHANGED THE LEGAL

DEFINITION SO CHILDREN CAN

NOW HAVE MORE THAN TWO LEGAL

PARENTS.

THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

REPORTS THAT THE LAW IS

AIMED AT ADDRESSING THE

SHIFTING FAMILY STRUCTURE,

INCLUDING SITUATIONS WHERE

SAME-SEX COUPLES HAVE A

CHILD WITH AN OPPOSITE SEX

BIOLOGICAL PARENT.

GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN SIGNED

THE LAW INTO BILL LAST

WEEK.

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS FOUGHT

IT AS AN ATTACK ON THE

TRADITIONAL FAMILY.

Mark: NEARLY ONE IN 10

AMERICAN YOUNG PEOPLE SAY

THEY HAVE COMMITTED SOME

FORM OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE,

FROM FORCING ANOTHER PERSON

TO KISS THEM OR TOUCHING

SOMEONE SEXUALLY, ALL THE

WAY TO SEXUAL INTERCOURSE.

THOSE ARE THE RESULTS FROM A

STUDY OF MORE THAN A

THOUSAND TEENS, PUBLISHED IN

THE JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN

MEDICAL ASSOCIATION OF

PEDIATRICS.

ALMOST NONE OF THE INCIDENTS

WERE EVER REPORTED.

THE STUDY ALSO FOUND THAT

NEARLY HALF OF THE

PERPETRATORS BLAMED THE

VICTIM, AND THAT THOSE WHO

CARRIED OUT SEXUAL VIOLENCE

WERE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE

SEEN X-RATED VIOLENT SEXUAL

MEDIA.

Wendy: THE UNITED

STATES MAY FACE RETALIATION

FOR THE COMMANDO RAID THAT

CAPTURED A SENIOR AL-QAEDA

SUSPECT IN LIBYA.

U.S. FORCES SEIZED ABU

al-LIBI OVER THE WEEKEND.

HE WAS WANTED AFTER THE

BOMBINGS OF U.S. EMBASSIES

BACK IN 1998.

ONE CLERIC WARNED,

QUOTE,"ALL OPTIONS ARE ON

THE TABLE."

HE SEHE SAID SOME LIBYANS

THAT FEEL THE WAY TO GET

CLOSER TO GOD MAY STRIKE

BACK.

AND COUNTERATTACKS,

INCLUDING KIDNAPPINGS ARE

UNAVOID.

NORTH KOREA HAS RESTARTED A

PLUTONIUM REACTOR AT ITS

MAIN NUCLEAR FACILITY.

IN APRIL, NORTH KOREA SAID

IT WOULD RESTART THE

REACTOR, BUT HASN'T

CONFIRMED IF IT HAS DONE

SO.

RECENT SATELLITE IMAGES SHOW

SIGNS THE REACTOR MAY BE

OPERATING.

THEY SITED THE AGENCIES

SAYING THAT NORTH KOREA ALSO

CONDUCTED A MISSILE TEST AT

A NORTHERN SITE IN AUGUST.

THE AGENCY DID NOT SAY HOW

IT OBTAINED THE INFORMATION

AND DID NOT CONFIRM THE

OFFICIALS' REMARX.

Mark: COMING UP, THE

SCIENTISTS WHO DISCOVERED

THE SO-CALLED GOD PARTICLE

EARNED A NOBL NOBLE PRIZE.

Wendy: THE 2013 NOBEL

PRIZE IN PHYSICS HAS BEEN

AWARDED TO THE PHYSICISTS

WHO DISCOVERED THE SO-CALLED

GOD PARTICLE.

FRANCOIS ENGLERT OF BELGIUM,

AND PETER HIGGS OF BRITAIN,

DISCOVERED THE HIGGS BOSON

PARTICLE LAST YEAR.

IT HAS BEEN NICKNAMED THE

GOD PARTICLE BECAUSE IT IS

BELIEVE TO BE THE KEY OF

EXPLAINING THE BUILDING

BLOCKS OF MATTER AND THE

ORIGINS OF THE UNIVERSE.

THE PHYSICS PRIZE WAS THE

SECOND OF THIS YEAR'S NOBEL

AWARDS TO BE ANNOUNCEDMENT

O ANNOUNCED.

ON MONDAY, JAMES ROTHMAN,

RANDY SHECKMAN, AND THOMAS

SHEDHOFF GOT THE MEDICAL

NOBEL PRIZE.

Mark: THE EQUIPMENT

USED TO DISCOVER IT COST

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND TOOK

MORE THAN TWO DECADES TO

BUILD.

BACK IN 2010, GEORGE THOMAS

WENT TO GENEVA TO INTRODUCE

US TO THE LARGE HEDRON

COLLIDER.

George: LAST MONTH'S

PROTON SMASHING EXPERIMENT

WAS A BIT LIKE SMASHING

NEEDLES ACROSS THE

CONTINENT, AND GETTING THEM

TO COLLIDE HALF WAY.

THIS IS THE MACHINE THAT IS

MAKING THOSE COLLISIONS

HAPPEN.

IT IS CALLED THE LARGE

HADRON COLLIDER, OR L.H.

C..

20 YEARS IN THE MAKING

AND AT A COST OF MORE THAN

$8 BILLION, THE L.H. C. IS

ONE OF THE LARGEST AND MOST

SOPHISTICATED MACHINES EVER

MADE.

THE COLLIDER IS HELD IN A

17-MILE TUNNEL 300 FEET

UNDER THE BORDER BETWEEN

SWITZERLAND AND FRANCE, NEAR

GENEVA.

FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF

THE COMPLEXITY, THIS IS MOST

PROBABLY THE MOST AMBITIOUS

SCIENTIFIC ENTERPRISE EVER

TRIED BY MANKIND.

George: HERE IS HOW IT

WORKS: AT FULL POWER,

TRILLIONS OF SUBATOMIC

PARTICLES CALLED PROTONS

RACE AROUND THE RING 11,000

PLUS TIMES A SECOND.

THE PROTONS ZIP THROUGH THE

TUNNEL AT NEARLY THE SPEED

OF LIGHT.

THIS IS A SIMULATION OF WHAT

HAPPENS INSIDE THIS 17-MILE

RING.

HALF OF THE PROTONS RUN

CLOCKWISE AND HALF

COUNTERCLOCKWISE.

ONE OF THE BIG CHALLENGES

IS TO BEND THE PROTONS

AROUND THIS RING.

WE HAVE THESE BIG BENDING

MAGNETS.

George: THE COLLISIONS

HAPPEN AT FOUR MASSIVE

DETECTORS, LIKE THIS ONE,

SET UP AT DIFFERENT POINTS

ALONG THE COLLIDER.

WE PLACE THEM IN A

BUNCH.

AND MOST OF THEM MISS EACH

OTHER.

AND EVERY NOW AND THEN WE

GET A COLLISION BETWEEN ONE

OF THESE PROTONS.

George: WHEN THE PROTON

BEAMS COLLIDE, THEY GENERATE

TEMPERATURES MORE THAN

100,000 TIMES HOTTER THAN

THE SUN.

SO TO KEEP THE RING FROM

BURNING UP, LIQUID HELIUM

CHILLS IT TO A COOL -456°

FAHRENHEIT.

THE L.H.C. IS RUN BY THE

ORGANIZATION FOR NUCLEAR

RESEARCH.

MORE THAN 10,000 SCIENTISTS,

ENGINEERS, AND TECHNICIANS

FROM 80 COUNTRIES, INCLUDING

THE UNITED STATES, ARE

INVOLVED IN THE EXPERIMENT.

SCIENTISTS HERE AT THE SERN

CENTER LIKE TO DESCRIBE THE

L.H.C. AS A SORT OF TIME

NETWORK BECAUSE THE ULTIMATE

GOAL IS TO RECREATE THE

ENVIRONMENT NANO SECONDS

AFTER THE SO-CALLED BIG

BANG.

WHEN THESE VERY POWERFUL

BEAMS COLLIDE TOGETHER, WHAT

ACTUALLY GOES ON THERE IS IN

THAT VERY TINY INSTANCE OF

TIME, THEY'RE RECREATING AN

AREA OF HUGE ENERGY.

WE'RE ACTUALLY RECREATING

WHAT THE UNIVERSE LOOKED

LIKE A BILLIONTH OF A SECOND

AFTER THE BIG BANG.

IF WE CAN DO THAT, WE CAN

PHOTOGRAPH, ESSENTIALLY,

WHAT WENT ON IN IT.

DR. SERIES AN SEARS AND

OTHERS SAY THEY ARE TRYING

TO UNDERSTAND WHAT MAKES THE

UNIVERSE TICK, WHAT MAKES IT

LOOK THE WAY IT DOES.

WHAT WE WANT TO FIND OUT

IS WHY ARE WE HERE?

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE VERY

BEGINNING?

WHERE DO WE COME FROM?

WHAT ARE WE MADE OF?

WHERE DO WE GO TO?

NOW WE HAVE FINALLY THE

CHANCE TO STUDY THAT IN THE

LABORATORY BY JUST

RECREATING THE CONDITIONS AS

THEY WERE AT THAT TIME.

George: GEORGE THOMAS,

CBN NEWS, GENEVA,

SWITZERLAND.

Mark: YOU'RE ABOUT TO

MEET A MAN WHO LOST

180 POUNDS AND HAS MANAGED

TO KEEP IT OFF FOR A

DECADE.

Wendy: HE LOST A WHOLE

PERSON.

Mark: HE DID.

Wendy: HE DID IT -- GET

READY FOR THIS -- BY

FOLLOWING A DIET FULL OF

FATTY FOODS.

LORI JOHNSON TELLS US WHY

THIS DIET WORKS AND WHY SOME

DOCTORS ARE CHANGING THEIR

MINDS.

Reporter: JIMMY MOORE

GREW UP AN OVERWEIGHT CHILD,

PUTTING ON EVEN MORE POUNDS

IN COLLEGE.

AFTER MARRYING, HE BALLOONED

TO 410 POUNDS, EATING TWO

BOXES OF LITTLE DEBBIE'S

SNACK CAKES AND DRINKING 16

COKES A DAY.

I WAS WEARING SIZE

62-INCH WAIST PANTS.

I WAS WEARING 5 XL SHIRTS,

AND I WAS ON PRESCRIPTIONS

FOR HIGH CHOLESTEROL, HIGH

BLOOD PRESSURE, BREATHING

PROBLEMS.

I WAS A MESS.

Reporter: HIS WIFE

PRAYED FOR A MIRACLE.

ONCE I GAVE IT TO GOD, I

SAID, HE'S IN YOUR HANDS.

SORRY.

THAT'S WHEN EVERYTHING

BECAME OKAY.

I WAS SCARED BECAUSE I

DIDN'T WANT TO BE WITHOUT

HIM.

AND I LOVED HIM SO MUCH.

Reporter: JIMMY SAYS

GOD LED HIM TO GIVE UP

CARBOHYDRATES, THE SWEET,

STARCH CHEY FOODS, AND THE

POUNDS MELTED AWAY.

THE BIG THING, CAME OFF

OF HIGH CHOLESTEROL

MEDICATION, CAME OFF OF HIGH

BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATION.

Reporter: DR. HARRY

WESMAN HEADS UP THE DUKE

LIFESTYLE MEDICAL CLINIC.

WHEN HIS PATIENTS FOLLOW

JIMMY DIET, THEY LOSE WEIGHT

AND DON'T NEED THEIR

MEDICINE ANYMORE.

HERE AT DUKE, WE USE

MAINLY THAT THE LOW

CARBOHYDRATE, KETOGENIC

DIET, AND HYPERTENSION GETS

BETTER, FATTY LIVER GETS

BETTER, AND THE LIST GOES ON

AND ON.

Reporter: DR. WESTMAN

RECOMMENDS KEEPING CARBS

DOWN TO 20 GRAMS A DAY.

THAT'S NOT MUCH.

THIS CUPCAKE IS ALREADY TOO

HIGH.

IT HAS 26.

BUT DON'T JUST THINK

DESSERTS.

CARBOHYDRATES INCLUDE WHOLE

GRAINS AND FRUIT.

THIS PIECE OF BREAD HAS

20 GRAMS.

THIS BANANA, 27.

I SEPARATE OUT FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES.

I'LL NEVER SAY THEM IN THE

SAME SENTENCE.

FRUITS BASICALLY ARE HIGH IN

SUGAR.

VEGETABLES HAVE MUCH LESS

SUGAR.

SO WE WANT PEOPLE TO HAVE

VEGETABLES.

FRUITS ARE AN EVER NOW AND

THEN TREAT, LIKE CANDY OR

SOMETHING, THAT YOU WOULDN'T

HAVE EVERY DAY.

Reporter: THE KEY TO

GIVING UP CARBOHYDRATES IS

REPLACING THEM WITH SOME

PROTEIN AND A LOT OF FAT.

YES, FAT.

THAT INCLUDES MONO

UNSATURATED FATS, AND ALSO

SATURATED FATSMENT.

IF THERE IS ONE MESSAGE

I'M TRYING TO PUT OUT THERE

LOUD AND CLEAR, I LOVE MY

BUTTER, I LOVE MY COCONUT

OIL.

I LOVE ALL OF THE NOURISHING

FATS THAT ARE MAKING ME

HEALTHY, ENERGETIC,

VIBRANT.

I'M SITTING HERE TODAY THE

HEALTHY MAN BECAUSE OF THOSE

FATS.

Reporter: MANY DOCTORS,

AND EVEN THE GOVERNMENT,

TELL US TO AVOID SATURATED

FAT BECAUSE THEY SAY IT

CAUSES HEART DISEASE.

BUT DR. WESTMAN JOINS A

GROWING NUMBER OF PHYSICIANS

WHO SAY SATURATED FAT IS

GOOD FOR YOU.

I TELL MY PATIENTS NOT TO

FEAR THE FAT.

EAT LOTS OF FAT.

FAT MAKES YOU FEEL FULL.

THERE IS NO PROBLEM WITH

FAT.

IN FACT, SATURATED FAT, THE

FAT THAT WE'VE BEEN TAUGHT

NOT TO EAT, RAISES YOUR GOOD

CHOLESTEROL BEST, OF ALL OF

THE FOODS YOU CAN EAT.

Reporter: IN THEIR NEW

BOOK CALLED "CHOLESTEROL

CLARITY," THEY EXPLAIN WHY

WE NEED TO RE-THINK WHAT WE

HAVE LEARNED ABOUT FAT AND

CARBS.

POINTING TO NEW SCIENTIFIC

EVIDENCE, SHOWING

INFLAMMATION AS THE MAIN

CAUSE OF HEART DISEASE AND

OTHER PROBLEMS.

IT COMES FROM EATING TOO

MANY CARBOHYDRATES, NOT HIGH

CHOLESTEROL.

THE BOOK GOES FURTHER,

EXPLAINING THAT SOME

CHOLESTEROL CAN BE GOOD FOR

YOU.

H.D.L. CHOLESTEROL IS GOOD,

AS WELL AS SOME L.D.L., BUT

ONLY THE LARGE FLUFFY

PARTICLES.

SMALL, DENSE, L.D.L.

PARTICLES DO LEAD TO HEART

DISEASE.

THEY COME FROM EATING AN

INFLAMMATORY DIET LOADED

WITH NOT SATURATED FATS, BUT

CARBOHYDRATES.

SO FOR A SMALLER BELLY AND

HEALTHIER HEART, HE SKIPPED

THE CARBOHYDRATES.

WE DID A HEART SCAN TO

SEE IF THERE IS ANY

CALCIFIED PLAQUE IN THERE,

ZERO, NONE.

85% FAT IN MY DIET AND NO

CLOGGED ARTERIES.

Reporter: A LOW

CARBOHYDRATE, HIGH FAT DIET

IS CONTROVERSIAL AMONG

DOCTORS AND GOES AGAINST

CONVENTIONAL WISDOM.

BUT A GROWING NUMBER OF

DOCTORS SAY SUCCESS STORIES

LIKE JIMMYS ARE MAKING THEM

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT HOW A

LOW-CARBOHYDRATE, HIGH-FAT

DIET MAY HELP THEIR

PATIENTS.

ALL OF THOSE YEARS I WAS

DEALING WITH OBESITY, I KNEW

GOD WAS HEARING MY PRAYER,

AND THAT SOME DAY -- IT

WASN'T NECESSARILY GOING TO

BE ON JIMMY MOORE'S FINDING,

BUT SOME DAY I WAS GOING TO

FIND THE ANSWER THAT WAS

RIGHT FOR ME.

AND I HAVE.

AND NOW I'M TRYING TO SPREAD

THAT TO OTHER PEOPLE AND BE

AN ENCOURAGEMENT TO THEM.

Reporter: LORI JOHNSON,

CBN NEWS.

Wendy: WELL, IT'S NOT

EVEN HALLOWEEN, BUT THE

CHRISTMAS SEASON IS HITTING

EARLIER THAN EVER THIS

YEAR.

Mark: THAT, IT IS.

AND THE GUYS FROM "DUCK

DYNASTY" SEEM TO BE JUST

FINE WITH THAT.

THE "DUCK THE HALLS" ALBUM

COMES OUT IN OCTOBER.

THE REALITY FAMILY FAMOUS

FOR THEIR BEARDS AND THEIR

WAYS GET TOGETHER WITH

COUNTRY SINGERS TO WISH US A

MERRY, HAIRY CHRISTMAS.

WE'RE IN SINGING LESSONS,

ONE-ON-ONE.

SHOW ME HOW THE PROS DO

IT.

FROM THE DIAPHRAGM.

* LIKE JESUS AND SANTA

CLAUS *

* WE'VE GOT LOVE BEHIND

THESE BEARDS *

* WISHING YOU A MERRY

CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY,

HAPPY, HAPPY NEW YEAR *

Mark: THAT'S GREAT.

SINGERS LIKE LUKE BRIAN,

GEORGE STRAIT, AND ALISON

KRAUSS JOINED IN ON THE

ACTION.

AND AS WILLIE SAYS, NOTHING

SAYS CHRISTMAS MORE THAN

BIG, HAIRY MEN IN SANTA

HATS.

THOSE GUYS ARE GREAT.

Wendy: THEY ARE SO MUCH

FUN.

THAT'S GOING TO DO IT FOR

THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."

Mark: THANKS FOR

WATCHING.

HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.

Wendy: GOOD NIGHT.
