One point you must always stay focused on, is the fact almost all whole fresh food is low carb (with the exception of most fruits and some root vegetables) Some of the great myths regarding a low carb lifestyle, include it's unhealthy, it's restrictive and people cannot stay with it long term. Nothing could be further from the truth. I will never ever accept, eating whole fresh foods from the farm or the sea, can be harmful to anyone's health. The junk masquerading as food, coming out of factories more akin to a petro-chem plant, have played a huge role in the epidemics of obesity and the often linked type two diabetes.
If you accept the above, you have to ask yourself, why are so many dietitians against a low carb diet. Could it be so many dietitians and their organisations are taking money from and are sponsored by junk food companies.
The low carb teams diet for the last eight years.
I don't know who is getting paid off by whom....but.....I DO know this. On Jan 1st of this year we removed from our daily diet; anything yeast raised (so breads and pastas), condiments, sweet treats, deep fried anythings and severely restricted our dairy intake to plain yoghurt, a drip of milk for himself's coffee and the odd slice of cheese. We eat meat and fresh produce, whole grain rice and oatmeal, eggs and the aforementioned dairy products. We cook everything ourselves and seldom eat out. Since initiating this new food plan we feel better, have less bloating and gas AND I have dropped 40 pounds with no effort whatsoever. I firmly believe a low carb diet is the best way to go.. .
Thank you 'only slightly confused' you have made our day. Keep up your good work, and the best of health to you and yours.
I couldn't agree more :)
