Low Carb for Beginners

    Dr. E:

    Dr. Fung says: "...things that raise insulin, you want to cut them down. So things like sugars, refined grains, a lot of these refined carbohydrates..."
    Seems he missed your recent post: http://www.dietdoctor.com/how-different-foods-affect-blood-sugar-levels Doesn't appear to be a "refined carbohydrate"
    in the lot. It's carbs. Doesn't he get that? Why does he
    equivocate? If he says, "cut down on refined grains...", does that
    mean he's okay with whole grains? Dr. William Davis
    has shown time and time again that whole grain bread
    spikes insulin as well as "refined" bread. Do you disagree
    with that?

    Why do you continue to post this stuff?

    "Whole grains" is usually a marketing term these days. Nothing "whole" about them, they just added some percentage of the fibre back. Still very much refined.

    Likely not one single whole grain remains in most "whole grain bread" of today.

  3. Pierre
    Bread and wheat products and their cousins (rice, maize, etc ) are the first to go out in a low carb diet whether or not they are refined or even bio.

    Right, both of you. So, if that's the case, why
    does Dr. Fung use those outdated terms?
    Why not just say "carbs"? It's carbs and this
    is a Low Carb High Fat blog, is it not? So why
    continue with the equivocation? After all,
    you posted this: http://www.dietdoctor.com/how-different-foods-affect-blood-sugar-levels

    "Dr. Fung use those outdated terms?"

    You can not easily erased from the memory 60 years of brainwashing .

    But I agree with you, he should have made an effort because a lot of people think that whole grain are good for your their health.

    "Most people know that counting calories doesn’t really work."

    Dr.Fung is the best at explaining thing and making Keto and fasting so easy. Dr.Eenfeldt site Diet Doctor is the best with teaching you what to eat. I have had great results doing exactly what they teach.
