    By our old friend Duane Mellor  Rolling Eyes and why diabetics like me don't take him seriously 

    Dietitians like me don’t take the Pioppi Diet seriously

    Doesn't do himself any favours by citing an article by Christopher Snowdon

    Don't mean to be fat shaming but it looks like Duane has been overdoing those wholegrains  Shocked

    Isn't that Giles "I'm not diabetic I just have glucose spikes" Yeo?

    My lightbulb started sputtering and then died. I called it Duane Mellor. Really these people do themselves less and less favours as time passes. The true fad diet is the low fat one started a few decades ago, since when population health went to hell in a handbasket.

    This was entertaining

    https://varputavi.wordpress.com/2010/12/21/fat-is-not-the-problem-says-dr-walter-willett/

    Since then Walt Wallet and Frank Hunilever were reminded where Harvard's money comes from and have backpedalled ever since.

    Yes that's the one he appeared alongside Duane on the BBC programme Trust Me I'm a Doctor 

    In this programme, Michael Mosley finds out how learning a new language can help stave off dementia. Giles Yeo goes vegan for a month to test whether it makes him healthier. Gabriel Weston asks whether you can get drunk on boozy food. Zoe Williams looks at what you can do to improve your health if you are living with heart disease. Alain Gregoire discovers how to protect your teeth from a hidden danger.

    And definitely don't trust this dietitian especially if your a diabetic  Evil or Very Mad


    Obviously hasn't a clue about the effects of bananas or other carbs for that matter on blood sugars in a T2 or she's got vested interests in big pharma £££££££££££.

    I can't even be in the same room as a banana without my glucose spiking. Probably the same would happen if I was in the same room as Catherine Collins.

    Hi Chris, If that is true, sapiens must have got the genes from Neanderthals, who had been out of Africa for 100,000s of years.
    South Africans of African heritage seem to have problems with carbs, probably worse than former Europeans, which doesn't fit the theory.
    This suggestion seems somewhat implausible to me.
    From what I gather there have been many ice ages and interglacials in the last million years, very roughly it is 100,000 year cycle.

    It seems that the longer populations have had agriculture the fewer problems they have with carbs. Much the same for populations who have lost lactose intolerance over time. I suspect current policy is to eliminate individuals who have a high genetic propensity for insulin resistance, even if that is the majority of the population.

    I also suspect the elephant in the room is not just grains, and especially wheat, but the huge overdose of omega 6 seed oils, which other high carb populations have not been subjected to until recently.

    Yet another doctor comes on board
