Right ? These are pretty applicable to many of the responses given on this thread .15 pages... Wow! Have we figured out who has the biggest Dietitian ePeen® yet?
Asking for a friend.
I saw the OP given as , as was said in the actual post , ……as a place to start for those interested . If not interested then just move on 🤷🏻♂️
Lots of “science” posted from some of the same people responding in this thread , from about two and a half years ago and insisted was true and matter of fact and backed up by “experts” has now proven wrong by other “experts”. People were called names , insulted, called crazy and conspiracy theorists for listening to other experts not backed by power and money , but who , with lifetimes of experience, medical degrees and and awards and accolades in their field just wanted to bring forth information and to help people. They were shouted down and silenced and made to go away .
Point is , everyone can make their own decisions on their diet with help from their doctor expert on what fits them best .
Had I listened to the ADA( American diabetes association) , you know , the “recognized “ “experts” 7 year’s ago, I’d still be on insulin AND pills to control blood sugar .
The ADA’s recommendation and stance for diabetics is …. As long as a diabetics A1c ( 3 month average blood sugar level) is under 7 that’s good ! WTF ???!!!???!!!. At sustained blood sugar at or close to that level causes internal organ damage and further stresses the pancreas . But hey “ you’re a diabetic , that’s ok”, you shouldn’t strive for or expect a normal a1c without meds 🙄. It might not be possible for some for numerous reasons but it is for many if not most type II diabetics through diet and exercise . My blood sugar levels daily and a1c are now better than a non diabetic. Had I listened to the ( recognized) “experts” I’d have been on a cocktail of diabetes meds, blood pressure and cholesterol meds causing a host of other problems the past 7 years . The only benefactors of this are the pharmaceutical companies and the doctors and organizations ( whom they fund) to keep the money train rolling .
I use this as an example and there are many others . Disagree ? Yes . Debate ? Yes. But to completely disregard is somewhat closed minded in my opinion and to look for an argument for the sake of arguing by means of insult and antagonization is petty, childish and wrong . The ones who do it on this forum are the ones who most hate it and call it out when done to them .
