Just another wrong-headed diet book by non-diabetic publishers who think they're experts . . . this time it's Barbara Quinn and the editors of Prevention Magazine. Go to Amazon & search Books for her name . . . you're gonna love 'er, Linda . . . :rolleyes:

Girls, There's one missing ingredient to all of this and yes I know there's a ton of Carbohydrates in there. :(

Can you guess what that is? :rolleyes:

I am sorry girls.​

Well I hope you brought a cushion and a snack along, Peter, because I dunno what's missing either! :D But I gotta tell ya, there's a huge dearth of COMMON SENSE! Carbs raise BG - ergo, stop pushing carbs! How hard is that?!

Diets

Linda, when researching diets prescribed for diabetics a few centuries ago, I read about a "potato diet".

There were two schools of thought in the 17'th century. 1. Restrict carbs to prevent high blood sugar levels, and 2. Eat lots of carbs, because the sugar was being spilled with all the urine and it needed to be replaced to restore good health. Guess which school won out? Yep, a high carb diet was strongly advised by many doctors for many years.

Well wile I look at American history on JFK's assassination on the tube. I know what you cannot do Sharron as it's plain to see. Maybe Linda and I can but you have an excuse.

I see carbs like fuel and I will use it like fuel, But then if you cannot use the fuel then you will have it around you as FAT!!! No matter how much carbs that you avoid.
