Unless you have been living in a cave in outer Mongolia, you would have seen the countless articles in science journals, newspaper articles and television programs, informing us on the now known dangers of sugar. Only people of limited dietary knowledge, do not know carbohydrates turn to sugar once digested, clearly many dietitians fit into this category. Hang on a minute you may be thinking, surely that cannot be true. Well, ask yourself this question, why do the majority of dietitians recommend a high starch-carb-sugar diet to the most allergic to sugar people on the planet, namely diabetics.
The salvation of countless diabetics is the diet/lifestyle known as low carb higher fat. Highly vocal BDA dietitian Catherine Collins says and I quote "Only those with little knowledge of real-life dietary habits would believe LCHF diets sustainable"
I know, or know of hundreds of low carb higher fat diabetics who have stuck with the lifestyle for many years. Amazing how many people say 'it can't be done' when what they mean is 'I can't do it' Also, I know of many highly qualified scientists, doctors, and well informed dietitians, that not only believe a low carb higher fat diet is sustainable, many actually low carb themselves. Check out below the foods many low carbers base their diet on, ask yourself, could I be more than happy and healthy using these foods. I wonder what Catherine must eat, if she believes living on the foods below are unsustainable. Possibly the sort of junk that often leads to obesity and type two diabetes.
One last point, I would contact Catherine via twitter directly, but she blocked me sometime ago. She can of course respond to this post directly here. I doubt very much that will happen, because Catherine has no answers it would appear to a straight question. A question I often ask myself is, does she practise what she preaches? I reckon she does. Make your own mind up as to whether her diet works. As I said earlier, many people say 'it can't be done' when what they mean is 'I can't do it'.
