There is a lot of discussion going on regarding above mentioned two dietary regimen.The whole forum seems to be divided over the issue.Objective remains the same,which is the best dietary ,which suits every body regarding,availability,cost,taste and dietary habits.
We are all conversant about LCHF and it's dietary principle and logic how it lowers and keeps blood sugar in control.It clearly
Y says ,to achieve the gaol carb must be limited to 100 gms.
But not every thing is clear about LONG WHEAT.Many people have reported very encouraging results following LWDR.How it works,is not known or at least we don't know the scientific basis.Long Wheat after all is a cereal full of carb.
As I failed to find actual composition of LW,I decided on analysis the composition of wheat which is normally eaten.The composition of normal wheat, Carb.-71% which includes sugar-0.5%,Fiber-12.5%, Protein 13 %, Fat-2.5% rest are minerals and vitamins etc.
LWDR prescribes long wheat 1gm/kg of body weight.Now for calculation purpose we take example of a person with 60kg.wt.He takes two full meals I.e.60+60=120gms of wheat.As wheat contains only 70%carb,so carb intake is about 84gms.Again percentage of fibre in carb is 12.5%,reduce it from carb taken and it comes about 74gms.Therfore NET carb. Consumed is only 74gms.so we are saving 26 gms of carb for other dishes.Questions can be raised that fibres are also carb. so why reduce it from total carb.Normally it has been said that percentage of Resistant Starch is upto 50% depending on the variety of grain?Even then amount of carb is well within the limit required by LCHF.
So where is the difference between two seemingly opposite concepts.Dont you think? A food for thought.
