GUEST,Anne Croucher BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? (61* d) RE: BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? 31 Aug 04


What a hoot.

Doctors expecting the Atkins diet to cause problems and what happens - their 'patient' rapidly becomes pregnant!! I hope that mother and baby are doing well.

By the way I said ketosis is not dangerous and this is absolutely true, but of course if you describe a state of high ketone levels in the blood then that is an entirely different matter.

But that is not ketosis.

That is not ketosis.

That is not ketosis.

It is the exact oposite in terms of blood sugar concentration, and a healthy normal function which somehow no one wants to admit even exists. If 'they' can get you to confuse it with a Type 1 diabetes 'this is going to kill you' state then 'their' propaganda machine is doing very well.      

When breaking down body fat you (and other animals) produce and excrete ketones - I believe they would not build up unless you are suffering kidney failure - you can read the warnings in Dr Atkins book if you like.

There are results from many studies done under medical supervision which appear to show nothing dangerous being detected in people 'in ketosis'.

If you want reserch, try Phinney, S.D., et al 'The Human Metabolic Response to Chronic Ketosis Without Caloric Restriction' Metabolism, 32,(8) 1983

Like I said, 'they' want you to believe that it is dangerous to follow the Atkins diet - even if they can't provide any reasons.

By the way - Humans evolved as one type - the cultivation of grain and beans by any particular group is not even the blink of an eye in evolutionary terms, the movement of people into the Far North where they might eat a lot of meat is insignificant on a genetic level, it is too recent.

Naturally I am convinced that foods with a low glycaemic index are the ones to eat, there is so much reserch linking them to avoiding so many diseases - but I would far sooner be eating fresh, crisp, green red yellow purple orange growing salads and vegetables than grains, beans, potatoes etc., no matter how 'complex' their sad stodgy pale carbohydrates.
