what is the biochemical principle behind some people telling carbo hydrate is the killer?fat in combination with carbs only is trouble some.
it is in the company of carbs that fat increases lipid profile.otherwise fat is innocent.it can keep at any desired blood glucose level.
the right answer is:
within the recomended proportion , ie, balanced diet and limited food-
all are good -carbs ,proteins and fats.
over and above the body's requirements everything is bad ,including oxygen ,water and food.[not only fats or carbs]
then what is this talk about carbs?
i will give an 'exagerated proportion- reply' to emphasise the meaning.
we take fat and proteins alone:
blood glucose rise.:
no rise in glucose because -
there is no fat to glucose path inside the body.
protein to glucose is a slow path ,time consuming .so no bs rise too much.
as there is no carbs,
most of the fat will be expended for
burned in the citric acid cycle to disappear as
[atp] co2 and water.how can there be fats available to float in blood if it is all used for energy?
now enter carbs:
with carbohydrates available ,enough and more, the body jumps for carbs for energy.
some small amount of fats and proteins are used for repairing works inside the body.the rest will be stored or thrown out of body.
so in case of excess of carbs
there will be both glucose rise and lipid profile going up.
this is what some people say carbohydrates are the culprits.
this analysis tells us how the low carb diet like atkins work.
in fact all diet therapy for diebetes is disguised low carb diets.
but for reasons of not being providing all the nutrients and other reasons
the world medical bodies recommend only balanced diet both for the healthy and the diabetic.
how can there be something to float in blood or
stored in fat cells when we feed in ,only the just necessary quantity.that is balanced and limited food.
in a diabetic
if insulin is absent give insulin.
that is the right choice.
but there are some few people who goes obese/overweight even if they eat only the just necessary food.
that is by itself a disease ,not to be considerd as over eating.
if exercise ,food control etc does not work -
for them, the american diabetes organisation recomends low carb diet.for a period of maximum two years.
a moderately low carb diet is 130 grams per day.this is not recommended as a diabetic diet.
it is recommended for those who are both diabetic and overweight/obese for weight reduction.
