How and Why to Manage Carbohydrate Intake

Source:  Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines | Sarah Hallberg | TEDxPurdueU
Video key points identified by 'Obesity Doctor' - Dr. Sarah Hallberg:
·       Medical science is biased; hence why diets are confusing and information is contradicting
·       Discusses insulin resistance which can lead to diabetes and heart disease
·       Carbohydrate is the largest contributing factor to insulin resistance and diabetes leading to a need for medication
·       Carbohydrate is not a nutrient
·       Protein is a nutrient
·       Fat does not cause insulin spikes; carbs does…keep blood sugar low
·       Recommendation? Minimize the amount of carb intake, but increase protein and fat intake
·       Hallberg provides viewers a vignette of how her clinic had a diabetes patient come off insulin by using the low-carb approach
·       Her recommended rules for a low-carb diet are:
1.     Don't eat 'fat-free' or 'low-fat' foods; they are loaded with chemicals and carbs
2.     Eat real food; not boxed food… if you cannot tell it's real food- it's not
3.     Eat foods you like
4.     Eat only when you are hungry…not on a planned schedule
5.     "NO GPS – No grains, potatoes, or sugar"; most alleged whole grains ARE PROCESSED whole grains… not the same
·       Two big reasons why low-carb is not well-promoted
1.     Carbs are a hard habit to break
2.     Competing business agendas and slanted health reporting
