Interesting! I think it would be wise to seek a win/win situation though, to minimise opposition from the food industry for example. Stressing the need to control amounts, and choose lower GI varieties may be to more people's taste - please forgive the pun.
Look at signature of one user "smorgan" on following link:
He wouldn't agree with eating wheat and rice when he is on diet that's 10% CARBS, 15% is Proteins and 75% is FAT since last ~4 years. Not many here would be getting VAP profile done/recommended ... no exercise, no highs and no lows where his A1C started at 10.6 and is now at 4.6 and takes no medicines.
His LIPIDS are so great even after eating 75% FAT for more than 3 years.
So bottomline is both wheat and rice should be off from diet with RICE first to be eliminated if the Diabetic map is true.
If it has to be rice, then go for brown rice and eat in small quantities. Fill up your belly with more green vegetables as accompaniments.
Multi grain atta is better than only wheat. Combination of small grains like raagi, bajra, moong, channa and the likes with little wheat as the binderwill have low glycemic index. Here again the trick is to add more green vegetables as fillers and nutrients.
so long quantum is under all are good.
As long as carbohydrate intake can be kept below 100gms/day it is good. Eating 4 cups of rice every day, eating 6 chapatis every day is definitely going to cause problems in long run wrt sugar control even if you eat 6 times a day.
Is not multigrain atta a myth and an idea way ahead of facts.God created grains as per seasons and different geographical boundaries.Such grains were intended for certain geographical areas and under various ritus.how can be so easily digested when taken together is what i sometimes wonder???
So best option for a diabetic is avoid all confusion. Drop wheat, rice, maize, barley, corn completely. Wholegrain, multi grain are all myths. They are just "Marketing Gimmicks"
Than what are we left with in terms of staple food and filing our appetite!
It wasn't so 15000 years back. So as diabetics we have to switch our body back to that state slowly or at brisk pace and enjoy the benefits. We have limited choices.
Pl go through posts and you will have answers in one or more posts as he is the one who championed the cause of LCHF here but was banned because of some users who consistently keep chasing LCHF bloggers:
Many picked up from his posts and are enjoying better control on less medicines.
