As anyone following my posts will see, I advocate a HCLF lifestyle which is in some ways the opposite of a LCHF where L=Low, C=Carb, H=High, F=Fat.
One thing that is agreed from people following either lifestyle is to reduce processed foods. Many people find significant benefits to their health just from this change.
My question is, "how many people who have moved to a LCHF previously were on a HCLF lifestyle?" The reason I ask is many people will find trouble and blame the carbs, but how many of those people ever ate potatoes without cheese or butter. So how do they know it is the carbs that were causing their health problems.
And that's the nub of my question. How do you actually know it is carbs that are causing a problem? Perhaps rather it is mixing poor carbs with poor fats that has caused health issues. Perhaps it is the removal of processed foods that has been your saviour.
You see I can understand that if you remove carbs that the problems seemingly go away. But I don't see that it follows that that necessarily means that it was the carbs that caused the problem.
I mean, essentially I am a human being like you. And yet I devour a huge amount of carbs daily. Like many of you successfully following a LCHF lifestyle I feel incredibly healthy. So why is my body different to yours?
Any insights appreciated.
