Carbsane says Insulin Doesn't Regulate Fat Mass !
From her latest post titled "Insulin Doesn't Regulate Fat Mass"
Is she right? who knows, her rants against low carbers sends me to sleep before I get half way through reading her long winded sermons, but let's look at a few facts.
1. She has stated publicly on more than one occasion she is morbidly obese and has been most of her adult life.
2. She stated on the infamous Jimmy Moore podcast she lost a huge amount of weight when she went on a low carb diet.
Carbsane done very well on a low carb diet, but as stated on the JM podcast the "cheats" by way of chocolates came back into her diet. So, she could not maintain a low carb lifestyle, that's cool with me, I can understand that. What I will never understand, is why she has dedicated her life to rubbishing a lifestyle, that has been the salvation of millions of diabetics and over weight people around the world.
3. Diabetes forums are full of stories re. type two diabetics who go onto injected insulin and big weight gain is a common complaint.
4. Type one diabetics very often report before diagnosis (i.e low natural insulin available) a huge weight loss is a very common factor, without any change in diet.
Now, I haven't got the time to rewrite the Gettysburg address three times a week, but I do know this. What we eat has a huge impact on plasma insulin levels. For most, the more carbs equals more insulin, the more insulin the greater the chance of gaining excess weight. The greater the chance of becoming insulin resistant.
Am I missing something here, can anyone put me straight?
