    Sian Porter RD the truth about carbs

    Post by graham64 on Thu Dec 22 2016, 21:41

    The "carbs are bad" mantra from Dr Atkins and co. has left many people confused about carbohydrates and their importance for our health, including maintaining a healthy weight.

    Dietitian Sian Porter says: "Carbohydrates are such a broad category and people need to know that not all carbs are the same and it is the type, quality and quantity of carbohydrate in our diet that is important.

    "While we should reduce the amount of sugar in our diet, particularly added sugars, we should base our meals on starchy carbs, particularly the less processed wholegrain varieties.

    "There is strong evidence that fibre, found in wholegrain versions of starchy carbs for example, is good for our health.”
    On this page you can find out all you need to know about carbohydrates, their health benefits, healthier sources of carbohydrates and how they can help you lose weight

    More nutricrap from Sian here http://www.nhs.uk/livewell/loseweight/pages/the-truth-about-carbs.aspx

    Also in the above NHS article 

    Douglas Twenefour, Diabetes UK clinical adviser, says:  "When considering a low-carbohydrate diet as an option, people with diabetes should be made aware of possible side effects such as the risk of hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar). We also advise that people with diabetes discuss the amount of carbohydrate to be restricted with their healthcare team.

    "The best way to manage diabetes is by taking prescribed medications and by maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes plenty of physical activity and a balanced diet that is low in saturated fat, salt and sugar and rich in fruit and vegetables, without completely cutting out any particular food groups."

    Thanks to Dr Verner Wheelock for the link http://vernerwheelock.com/201-let-those-with-diabetes-speak-for-themselves/

    In his post he also highlighted some adverse comments which have now been deleted would seem the BDA/DUK/NHS are colluding to censor comments 


    Dr Verner Wheelock wrote:
    In the light of the very damning comments I would have expected there would have been some attempt to answer them. But instead the comments have been removed. However it is still possible to award a rating on a 5-star scale. The result: 666 out of 925 were for a single star

    No not really, it's a desperate attempt to silence the mounting dissent from those who are at risk from stupidity of present day dietary guideline's

    Yes the FSA also used to do that when they had a ridiculous blog called "The Appliance Of Science" which was actually the appliance of dogma. I think they did away with the blog altogether when they had the job of making dietary policy (read importing dietary policy from the US) taken away from them and given to Coca-Cola and Tesco etc.
