    The Truth About Carbs, BBC1 review:

    Post by graham64 on Wed Jun 06 2018, 22:50

    Accessible documentary with tremendous results


    Dr Xand van Tulleken set out to explore carbohydrates, and their role in our increasing rates of type 2 diabetes, obesity, bowel cancer and fertility problems. The Truth About Carbs was a fun, accessible documentary complete with animations, demonstrative props and a visual experiment in which he asked people to measure out the sugar cubes found in foods from a bagel to a muffin. Shock: there are 19 in a seemingly innocent baked potato.

    Dividing them simply into three types of carbohydrate: beige (starchy), white (sugary) and green (healthy fibre), van Tulleken clearly got his message across about the importance of healthy, resistant starch in the diet.

    After hearing the terrifying diabetes-related conditions he listed – blindness, ulcers, heart attacks, strokes, limb loss… oh, and death (“It’s pretty hard to overstate how dangerous type 2 diabetes is,” said the upbeat, amiable doctor) – you certainly wanted to follow GP David Unwin’s low-carb lifestyle advice. With tips such as substituting celeriac for carb-heavy roast potatoes, or bulgar wheat for rice, we saw the results of a group of overweight patients who had all lost weight, with some on their way to reversing their diabetes.

    I guessed this would be a bunch of crap so didn't bother to watch it. Obviously I was wrong.

    VERY wrong judging by the storms of protest on Twitter

    https://twitter.com/xandvt/status/1004451701003378688

    Surprised they didn't roll out Alison Fatstone or one of her cronies. When I find the necessary circular tuit i might read some of my favourite dieticians' twitter feeds.

    What with this and the Noakes verdict, and the AMA trying and failing to get The Magic Pill pulled from Netflix

    https://twitter.com/SBakerMD/status/1003054963184959488

    looks like science is winning out over dogma, just for a while.

    It's on BBC iplayer now Chris, I was a bit sceptical like you but was pleasantly surprised, don't agree with all of the programme but it does give more credibility to low carb

    So no surprise there then. Has The Angry Chef - you know, that unqualified writer of bestselling books - and designer of processed food - had his say yet? They love opinionated idiots don't they? Anything but science.

    "The author could not be more uninformed if he tried"

    "This is a terrible article. Author goes on a barely coherent rant armed with primary school science on a topic he has very little understanding of."

    Good to see the level of Clue in the replies to his bollocks.

    Oh yes she is brilliant. We Dieticians too. Proof that it can be done. Maybe the Noakes trial will lead to more of them, and clueful doctors, emerging into the light.

    On the other hand the Militant Vegans are all over just now. I don't look but how many low carb people give themselves the "right" to invade vegan blogs and twitter accounts?

    Bloody hypocrite she knows very well that we are still around ten years on or maybe she does not consider ten years to be long term  Rolling Eyes Not to forget that we achieved our results by ignoring her dietary advice and stupid warnings about the dire consequences of Low Carb

    Hi Graham
    It's a non fact based assertion she hopes will not be checked out by her readers. What a pathetic and desparate character.

    The long term effects of her high carbs are well known. Amputations, dialysis and retinopathy not to mention premature death. Obviously unimportant.

    More of the same

    Deficient diet? Almost all high carb food are very poor in nutrient content. The higher their content of starches and sugars the lower their value for human health. There actually a more than proven inverse correlation between high carbohydrates food and good health.

    Hi Derek
    She used to post as ally5555 on the DCUK forum, her sole intention was to run down low carb and that included we were at risk from scurvy, osteoporosis, constipation and many other complications. After we were banned we continued to highlight her most preposterous posts on our blog she eventually went back to the forum and deleted many of the posts

    We also highlighted a post on a dietetics forum were she stated potatoes she be a staple in a diabetics diet  Rolling Eyes obviously she also deleted that

    My life of hell since I took on Tim Noakes https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/south-africa/2018-06-13-my-life-of-hell-since-i-took-on-tim-noakes/

    Dietician Claire Julsing-Strydom says she has had to endure hundreds of insulting messages from Banting fans since she laid a complaint against Professor Tim Noakes in 2014 for advising parents not to feed their children carbohydrates.


    _________________
    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Precisely! The concept of "protein leverage" I suspect also applies to a lot of micronutrients, If your diet is deficient your body prompts you to eat more in the hope that you will overcome the deficiency eventually, which doesn't happen with processed high carb crap-in-a-bag.

    Awww, diddums! She can dish it out but can't take it. She has now given herself less than zero credibility. Perhaps she should eat some cheese with that whine.
