The High Carb Low Fat dietary advise has been one of the biggest failures.
To cover this failure they started coming up with more stupid theories like sedentary lifestyle, calorie-in calorie-out etc and always kept MUM on biggest marker -- High Insulin levels in blood.
In short, they only blamed others and not their stupid dietary recommendations.
Many diabetics on LCHF don't do moon walking for 2 hrs. Why? because they don't need to as they are on LCHF diet. Why eat something and then set out for 2 hrs moon walk to burn it? Why not to eat less of that and avoid the MINDLESS walking? Do you know that reading book for one hr a day and Fidgeting while watching TV for 1 hr a day can burn 360 Kcal/day? So why do something else? Moreoeverr, BMR on LCHF is higher than the stupid High Carb Low Fat diet. Some strength building exercise of 10-15 kin a day and you are all toned up.
Sedentary Lifestyle, Calorie In calorie out useless theories were just to cover a horrible diet -- HIGH CARB LOW FAT. In short, one nonsense after another just to cover the bigger nonsense -- HIGH CARBS.
Ample studies are there to show that SFA is not responsible for CVD/CHD.
So, Cut The CARBS, Keep The CARS -- Switch to LCHF diet as a diabetic and forget all this talk about sedentary and second law of thermodynamics.
As it is, a long term study on High carbs Low fat Diet with exercise on Type 2 diabetics failed BIG TIME in providing any benefit wrt CVD/CHD. So what's the fun in living in fool's paradise that HIGH CARB LOW FAT DIET and Lot Of Walks is a great thing for diabetics. A 10+ year FAILED study showed that it is not.
If you need to walk 2 hrs a day to manage sugar as a Type 2 -- YOUR DIET is HORRIBLE.
I have managed a drug free life for more than Half A Decade as a Type 2 and land Non Diabetic Numbers.
I don't walk for more than 1.5 km a day. Many a times, not even that. 600+ Indian diabetics have embraced LCHF diet and enjoying great numbers on hugely reduced DRUGS.
Key to diabetes Management is:
(1) Cut down carbs to 20% and replace them with good fat -- so 20:20:60 rule for Carb:Protein:Fat, with FAT being 60% min.
(2) If LCHF diet alone does not get your numbers down -- only then think of walking
(3) If 1 and 2 also doe not help in achieving normal sugar levels, then drugs come in. DRUGS is LAST Priority and not the FIRST.
All this talk about BMI, calories counting, sedentary lifestyle, eating 8 times a day etc is all useless talks. Diabetics on LCHF diet prove this day in and day out. It's the HIGH CARB LOW FAT nonsensical dietary advise that's causing problems for Type 2 and the experts are trying to blame not themselves but YOU. So, tame your diabetes by ignoring such EXPERTS. It's as easy as counting 1,2,3
