So, here’s another diet that is essentially making claims that don’t seem to comply. I had shown this to a couple friends of mine as well and they thought the same. I will leave it to you to come up with what you think. So… yeah. I don’t want to start in on this one because if I start, I’ll likely not stop.

Why do you think carbs make us fat?

What regulates fat tissue are hormones, just as they do every other tissue and organ in the body. Most hormones work to flush fat out of the fat tissue; insulin works to put it there and so stores calories as fat. There’s nothing controversial about this. Insulin is secreted in response to

carbohydrates. It’s just the way the body works. The catch is that everyone pretty much agrees that your risk of chronic diseases increases with your weight. The reason public health author­ities tell us to lose weight is because if we lose weight it will lower our risk of heart dis­ease, dia­betes, cancer and Alzheimer’s dis­ease. So if carbs make us fat, that means they also increase our risk of all these dis­eases. It’s kind of hard to avoid this conclusion.
