Not all the comments were positive. Long term low carb anti and high carb, high med, Hope Warshaw acolyte, Phoenix made her usual negative contribution. Although Phoenix is on insulin and a pump and therefore does not require type two medication (many drugs have serious side effects and some banned) she pushes a diet that leads to escalated drug use for many. Take note of misleading information to a newbie or poorly informed diabetic regarding broccoli.
Broccoli is mostly carbohydrate, but contains a bit of fat and a bit more protein, it also contains lots of different vitamins associated with it Foods with higher carbohydrate amounts such as whole grains also have a varied nutrient profiles Some fats have vitamins/minerals associated with them, some are just as empty in vitamins and minerals as sugar."
I have referred to Phoenix in the past as the 'slippery one', always stalking about the forum spreading fear and misinformation, but with some degree of stealth. I have also called her the 'intellectual' I considered her bright until recently. Yesterday she blew it, you can feel the disappointment in her post that some good news was posted by a Healthcare professional, but the bullshit about broccoli was a very desperate measure.
Some facts about broccoli, florets boiled 1.1 grams of carb per 100 grams Collins Gem Calorie counter. broccoli contains almost 5 times as much vitamin C as potato, broccoli contains 8 times as much calcium as potato, broccoli contains almost 2.5 as much dietary fibre as potato. The fat information was clearly made to mislead and cause confusion. But that's Phoenix for you. Rarely has time to help a pump user or type one, but never stops meddling in low carb or type two diabetic posts. What a way to spend your time eh, kicking a method that for so many diabetics has been highly successful, and promoting a diet that can only lead to more drugs for most. What guilt or warped motivation drives her on ?
