How about this for an analogy, one bullet in the head is better than two bullets in the head, but it only takes one to kill ya. I hear what you guys are saying, and as I never disagree with anyone etc.
What worries me with the better than no carb reduction approach is many will not see much of an improvement. 150 grams a day would have me and Graham on permanent double figure BG numbers in old money i.e. ten plus. 50 grams of carb in one hit takes me to double number BG within an hour, I am not alone.
When I started low carbing my numbers went from 12 to 15 fasting to 4 to 5 fasting in five days. That was a mind blower and totally convinced me it was the only way for me, and many other I have come to learn.
The flog makes it's money from deals with big pharma drug trials for the forum members. They will never ever go for a true low carb diet, because big pharma has no use whatsoever for low carbers.
It's the flogs slyness and exploitation of the poorly informed that I detest. They can do whatever they like, flog whatever they like, to who ever the like, but why can't they be honest about it.
I will eat my hat when the flog promotes a true low carb lifestyle for diabetics. On the evidence of their latest recipe book, that is never going to happen. The have jumped on the low carb bandwagon in a half hearted way, because almost every good news story, for over seven years, has been achieved with a true low carb diet. But I believe it is a front.
Stands by for kicking
