I'm coming up on three years in a couple of months and AOK. No diet is better at preserving lean muscle mass than LC/HF. If weight needs to be lost it is lost the right way from body fat.

There is this misconception about Low Carb. First they tell us our brain cannot function. Well last time I looked I still had all my marbles. Then they tell you that you won't have energy for exercise. Well I routinely play tennis for 2 hours with tons of energy. I think many of us eat more healthy than the so called higher carb public who fill up on carb fillers like pasta, rice, potatoes and bread.

A little over 2 years and never had more energy in my life. I think CDE's are just promoting the "ADA line" for job security.

If I understand Wheat Belly correctly, genetic "improvements" over the last half-century or so have resulted in higher-producing wheat plants, but the wheat's been rendered nearly indigestible in the process. So any "special nutrients" are lost, because the body cannot make proper use of them.

And the nutrients weren't all that special to begin with.

I've been on very low-carb for just over a year. Prior to that, I suffered mightily from brain fog, among other annoyances. Low-carb brought my marbles back!

I think Dr Davis talks about the change in Modern Wheat which happened about 30-40 years ago. Not being a farmer I really don't know how the wheat plants have changed but I do know they have genetically modified lots of plants and these seem to interfere with the digestion process.

I beg to differ dude, I love a popped kernel of corn smothered in real melted butter! I found that I can each a few dripping handfuls at the movies and not spike at all! woohoo!

I also told her where I got all of my information from this forum and bloodsugar101 maybe she will check then out sometime and really be able to help diabetics. I know it is not her fault she is teaching what she has been taught I just feel so bad for misinformed diabetics.

You're providing a true public service, Donella -- however it goes!

I wonder if, perhaps, she'd feel more comfortable with the new knowledge if she introduced it as an alternative for diabetics who find that the conventional "wisdom" doesn't work for them?
