GUEST,Anne Croucher BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? (61* d) RE: BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? 01 Sep 04

Lowering carbohydrate consumption has had some really good effects on the blood sugar control and other blood related things such as cholesterol for some people, according to what I have heard and read.

Poor old Dr A and other 'medical but not diet' people have worked out how to reduce weight and improve the metabolisn over and over again, reinventing the wheel- rediscovering the low carb diet, only for the establishment to rise up and swear black is white in order to discredit them.

My way - as you might put it - it is to gradually reduce your weight to a sensible amount, eating fresh salad and other vegetables, a small amount of fruit, using olive and sunflower oils, all types of fish and meats, other protein sources, a bit of cheese - I happen to drink very little that is not just water - but I would never try to stop anyone drinking whatever they like. I would worry if it was a bottle of spirits a day, though.

Surely anyone can see that associaion of a low carb diet with eating saturated fats and consequent heart disease is not an argument against low carb diets?

Eating protein does not put a strain on the kidneys - look up how the kidneys work in a school Biology textbook if you don't want to believe me - the big clue is that they reabsorb what the body needs back into the blood, they don't remove impurities. It is a really efficent way of working.

If I get stroppy it is because claims are made, associations are assumed, you get someone writing there is evidence of this and no evidence of that - sneer sneer sneer - I'm a totally typical Aries character - no I don't believe in astrology - its just that they happen to have got me down to a T. Start to be unfair and you have this little fat old woman glaring up at you and starting to argue. Fortunately I argue down to most people, because I still have a better memory than most, and I can spot a non sequitur - and spell it too on a good day - so whilst I remain compos mentis I will cheerfully risk making a fool of myself by getting involved in a public debate bacause someone is not playing fair by another party unable to defend themselves.

The insults are surely coming from those who don't give a damn for the health of the general public?

I have found out why I got so fat after decades of thinking it was my fault - believe me, finally finding a way of losing weight and improving how I feel has been so easy, but I will have to be losing weight for months - years even, to get back to normal. A well balanced diet resulted in my being morbidly obese at 50 years of age. If I suceed in halving my weight I'll let you know. It will not be soon.

Atkins a quick fix - pull the other one. It might eventually have bells on.

Anne - that is me, no need for ""
