Should You Eat Slow Carbs to Feed Your Gut Bacteria?

Should you eat slow carbs to feed your gut bacteria? It’s a controversial topic, especially at a low-carb conference.

This did not stop the star of the BBC show Doctor in the House, Dr. Rangan Chatterjee. In this presentation from Low Carb Vail he discusses the differences between low carb and slow carb. And what the microbiome could do for our health.

    Dr. E:

    Why do you still have a link to Authority Nutrition:

    Is this something you want to promote?
    He constantly talks about healthywholegrains.
    Not low carb at all. Not something worth
    having on your blog roll.

    I have mixed feelings about authority nutrition, too. Not sure why I keep seeing the positive slant on "healthy" whole grains. I wouldn't promote popcorn if I had a website focused on health. It leads to mindless eating (snacking) and lots of carbs.
  4. bill,
    I'm not a fan of everything on that site, so we moved it down from the top group of blogs. Agree that their message is no longer always appropriate for people with insulin resistance (probably the majority of the population). But they still write some interesting articles so I like to follow it.

    Good answer. Thanks.
