Why Low-Carb Diets Must Be High-Fat, Not Hi... - Diabetes India
Thank you for your Guidance Anup. am Really, Really Grateful .
LOW-CARB, HIGH-FAT DIET AND WEIGHT LOSS - PROFESSOR JOHN YUDKIN
THERE IS JUST ONE OTHER CONSIDERATION: IF YOU WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT, THE ACTUAL MATERIAL YOU WANT TO RID YOUR BODY OF IS FAT. BUT TO DO THAT YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR BODY FROM USING GLUCOSE AS A FUEL TO USING FAT ? INCLUDING YOUR OWN BODY FAT. THIS IS ANOTHER REASON NOT TO USE PROTEIN AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR CARBS, AS PROTEIN IS ALSO CONVERTED TO GLUCOSE.
IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, NATURE STORES EXCESS ENERGY IN OUR BODIES AS FAT, NOT AS PROTEIN. IT MAKES MUCH MORE SENSE, THEREFORE, TO USE WHAT WE ARE DESIGNED BY NATURE TO USE. AND THAT IS FAT.
FAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE FOOD KNOWN TO MAN.
Anup, not only FOOD Industry, also the Pharma Industry, Right?
Am looking at the Garry Taubs as I am Typing this.
Good Calories, Bad Calories (2007) GARRY TAUBS
[released as The Diet Delusion in the U.K.]
In Good Calories, Bad Calories, Taubes tries to bury the idea that a low-fat diet promotes weight loss and better health. Obesity is caused, he argues, not by the quantity of calories you eat but by the quality. Carbohydrates, particularly refined ones like white bread and pasta, raise insulin levels, promoting the storage of fat.
Taubes is a relentless researcher, shining a light on flaws in the scientific literature. For example, he charges that when scientists figured out how to measure cholesterol in the blood, they became “fixated on the accumulation of cholesterol in the arteries as the cause of heart disease, despite considerable evidence to the contrary.”
He also reveals how charismatic personalities can force the acceptance of unproven theories. For instance, nutritionist Jean Mayer persuaded Americans that exercise leads to weight loss when in fact, writes Taubes, exercising may increase hunger and calorie intake. According to a 2000 review of the medical literature, “some studies imply that physical activity might inhibit weight gain . . . some that it might accelerate weight gain; and some that it has no effect whatsoever.” Yet the latest government dietary guidelines, released in 2005, recommend 60 to 90 minutes a day of moderately intense exercise and a low-calorie diet to achieve weight loss. Once again, Taubes shows, conventional wisdom wins out.
Good Calories, Bad Calories goes a long way toward breaking the link between obesity, gluttony and sloth by demonstrating that genes, hormones and chemistry play as much of a role in weight gain as behavior does. Taubes’s tales of lame science and flawed laboratory tests are at times brilliant and enlightening. But they can also become repetitive and wearying. In the end, the most compelling case Taubes builds is one against stark dietary advice of any kind; nothing simple can capture the complex reasons for the epidemic rise in obesity. H.L. Mencken once said, “There is always an easy solution to every human problem — neat, plausible, and wrong.” Taubes cites this quote in his book; he, and all of us, would do well to remember it.
I am still on my 3-5 mile walk daily, as, I enjoy it. From monday next I am cutting off all wheat as well from my diet. When I was Diagnosed with DM 2 on 30th march this year I gave up rice, which was my staple diet for over 55 years (I will be 58 this september) and did not feel the need for rice. I am sure the same will apply for wheat as well. Todays’ PPBS (1 Hr after First bite of lunch) the reading was 122. And I have stopped resting in the afternoons. I am up playing with my dog, stepping out to do the small chores of daily life instead of waiting for evening for the sun to go down etc. In other words I am more energetic than before.
Great. I gave up smoking in 1991 and haven’t even thought of it after that.
I am still on Glycomet. Probably off it after a week of the No rice and wheat diet. Thanks again Anup.
Today’s PPBS was 129mg/dl ( one hour after first bite). Feeling great.
Sir i am 55 F veg border line genetic diabetes recently diagonsed, please suggest foods to be included in meal if replacing wheat. I will be greatful to you
And Many Thanks To You.
Great discussion here. Hope many members will benefit with this diet.With your permission I would like to write about this in my blog too( tamil and English). I will duly ack. your contributions. It is my small attempt to help people out there to understand diet.
Anupji, you are not a lone ranger.You have affirmed my belief in this diet.
I feel the same when I encounter people staring at me when I go for fat and no carb for food. I am already on the bulkier side, and I see their smirk.:-). But I have plodded on, and trying to discard the lone chapati and a few grains of rice from my habituated tongue. I dont even argue anymore.
All the best for your efforts to spread the good diet.
Good For Sweetgran. Anup and I will be with you. Go ahead and educate your friends.
Averaging PPBS(1 Hr) 121. Off Glycomet for a week now.
Thanks to Anup, of course.
