Default Another ‘Heart-Healthy’ Diet Study Fails


Another ‘Heart-Healthy’ Diet Study Fails:
http://www.fathead-movie.com/index.p...t-study-fails/

"Diabetics are three to four times more likely to die of heart disease
than non-diabetics. Thanks to the arterycloggingsaturatedfat theory,
this sad fact causes so-called experts like the medical wizards at the
ADA to recommend exactly the wrong diet. The logic goes like this:
Well, since we know a fatty diet causes heart disease and diabetics
are prone to heart disease, they need to eat a low-fat diet.

"They can’t seem to bring themselves to consider an obvious alternate
theory: What if diabetics are prone to heart disease because high
blood sugar causes heart disease? What if heart disease begins with
damage to a coronary artery and high levels of blood glucose can cause
that damage?

"If you look at it that way, then it’s clear that diabetics
absolutely, positively should not be eating the kind of high-carb,
low-fat diet the ADA recommends. They should be eating a diet that
keeps their blood sugar down – every day, every hour. Since fat is
the only macronutrient that doesn’t raise blood sugar, that would be a
moderate protein, high-fat diet."

That logic is unchanged and has always been the basis of the "big fat
lie". What causes heart disease is being fat and going low fat does not
help for most. It works for a large minority of the population.

"They can’t seem to bring themselves to consider an obvious alternate

Even simpler than that if the fact that diabetes is a blood sugar
disorder and the variable part of our blood sugar comes from dietary
carbs. Thus diabetics should be on a low or slow carb plan of some
sort.

"If you look at it that way, then it’s clear that diabetics
absolutely, positively should not be eating the kind of high-carb,
low-fat diet the ADA recommends. They should be eating a diet that
keeps their blood sugar down – every day, every hour. Since fat is
the only macronutrient that doesn’t raise blood sugar, that would be a
moderate protein, high-fat diet."


Which is classic in low carb. It's how the arithmatic works.
