Re: 8 reasons carbs help you lose weight

... These all might be true if you compare "resistant starch" to sugar...

No sources? "Studies say"

Re: 8 reasons carbs help you lose weight

Speechless....

Esp. that part about carbs being good for diabetics Unfortunately my mother has had multiple nutritionists tell her the same thing (they knew she was diabetic, and advised more potatoes/rice/pasta/bread for a more complete diet!?). Despite the fact that you can literally watch your blood sugar rise after eating such a meal....

Re: 8 reasons carbs help you lose weight

I know a woman with Type 2 Diabetes whose nurse told her to eat 80g carbs with each meal to keep her blood sugar in check. She tells me that and then says: "And I've been doing that, but my blood sugar is spiking all over the place, I just don't understand!"

uh....

Re: 8 reasons carbs help you lose weight

I kept reading the article and expecting some sort of "early April Fools" or something.

Reading people's comments after the article is the best part. Yep. 360 grams of carbs/day, a pedometer and some reebok toner sneakers. Six pack in no time. Thanks Shine!!

If this is the TV show this is the part where you'd go off screen and we'd hear a beer can open.

Re: 8 reasons carbs help you lose weight

......As a type I diabetic, more carbs = more insulin = larger and more frequent insulin spikes during my day
