WOW! A 180! Academy Of Nutrition And Dietetics Commends Strong, Evidence-Based Dietary Guidelines Report! Great news! No mention of avoiding meat!
I just watched a great TEDx talk by Dr. Sarah Hallberg: Reversing Type 2 Diabetes Starts with Ignoring the Guidelines. I was alerted to it by the Diet Doctor newsletter, DietDoctor.com.
I am on the WebMD diabetes mail list just to see the latest appalling advice they are giving diabetics.
Today was special – the subject of the e-mail was “Why High Blood Sugar Is Bad for You”. At the top of the article:
“How Blood Sugar Affects Your Health”
“Why are high blood sugars so bad for you? How much sugar in the blood is too much? What are good sugar levels, anyway?”
” • Preventing Blood Sugar Emergencies
” • Best and Worst Foods for Diabetes
” • Diabetes and Long-Term Complications”
I clicked through to “Best and Worst Foods for Diabetes” and, lo and behold, found that diabetics should be eating more “Breads, grains, and other starches” than anything else!
