Diabetes is a disease of glucose control. Reducing the glucose load is fairly hard to argue against, don't you think ?
Especially as there are no "essential carbohydrates" ie carbs that your body has to have and can't make (as opposed to "essential fatty acids" etc).
Diabetes associations worldwide have their heads up their ass advising "balanced diets" and crap that leaves their victims munching on the very foods their body can't handle.
True. And it isn't just the Diabetes associations. I was diagnosed pre-diabetic about seven years ago and became full-blown insulin dependent after an attack of pancreatitis set off by the steroids I was given for Bell's Palsy back in 2009.
I was in hospital a number of times between 2007 and 2009 and was shocked by what would end up on my food tray when I chose the "diabetic plate" for breakfast, lunch or dinner. At least half the items would be chock full of carbs - and not the good kind. I would have my wife bring me in a big bag of beef jerky to eat on between meals because I left most of the food on the tray and just ate whatever protein and fat there was to be had.
Admittedly I am an extreme case but my wife and I went out for lunch a couple weeks ago and I got a wrap that sounded ok. Tortilla, scrambled eggs, sausage, avocado...one tortilla couldn't hurt, right? Checked my BG two hours later and it was over 400. People have different levels of Insulin Resistance and there are some of us who simply cannot eat carbs except for green veggie carbs.
