As we creep closer and closer to acceptance in mainstream medicine, we're seeing more arguments about carbs in the media. I predict this will only accelerate, until finally it's going to be acknowledged that for many of us, it's the best way to eat. I enjoyed the recent discussion in the New York Times. Won't it be fun when the answer just seems obvious? Laura
Are we addicted to meat? Are we "misinformed" about carbohydrates? Or are some people just lucky that their bodies seem to be able to tolerate large amount of glucose? (Remember, starches are basically just glucose.)
This is a blog post I wrote a year ago after watching an Oprah show about compulsive overeating. I couldn't help but imagine that many of those people could be "cured" simply by reducing the carbohydrate in their diets. Many of you agreed, as is shown in contributions to this list of Favorite Things about Low-Carb Eating (feel free to share your own!)
It's summer, and time for me to make room in my carb counts for one of my favorite foods - berries! There are raspberries growing in my yard and I just purchased my annual flat of olallieberries (a type of blackberry) from a local farm. I always make a pie and some sugar-free jam, and freeze the rest.
