Coming up on Wednesday is in "the Truth about..." series is Carbs. I have looked at a couple of clips that are available.
The Cracker Test: bbc.co.uk/programmes/p068tc8j tries to show that some people can eat carbs more easily than others, delineating them depending on how much amylase they have in their mouths. I can certainly agree that some people struggle with carbs while others find them easy. However I wonder if the program will go into how the gut naturally adapts over a month (and with some people that change can take a year) or so on a WFPB lifestyle to produce more amylase naturally. (This is why I eat my broccolli raw!) Essentially if you have a history of a high meat low veg lifestyle then your body does not produce much, if any, amylase enzyme.
Blood Sugar Bingo: bbc.co.uk/programmes/p068tc7x shows how little people understand how much sugar they are consuming. Does it say much more? Does it explain the difference between the way the body successfully and properly metabolizes complex carbs vs simple carbs? Meaning that good complex carbs, by and large, no matter how much sugar is in them are good for a healthy person. What frightens me most about this clip is the baked potato drooling in fat! In my book this is how to destroy a truly healthy vegetable.
