Low Carb Vs Low Fat Debate Rages On

The debate between which type of diet produces the best results and is also the healthiest for us has increased in intensity in recent months after a major new no-holds-barred book called ‘Good Calories, Bad Calories’ was published which lends credence to the idea that controlled carbohydrate nutrition is the best for health and weight loss.

The author Gary Taubes recently appeared on Larry King Live to debate the topic with Mehmet Oz, diet adviser to Oprah Winfrey. Watch the video, recorded by ‘Livin La Vida Low Carb Man’ Jimmy Moore below.

I think it was great to see Dr. Andrew Weil give honest feedback on the book. Finally someone who has actually read the book giving an opinion.

The advantages of controlled carbohydrate nutrition can no longer be overlooked by the medical profession and the average Joe seeking to lose weight.

Everyone has a different metabolic type and therefore a different tolerance to carbs in the diet. But I believe that if you are very overweight, that in itself is all the evidence you need that your tolerance to carbohydrate is quite low. It’s time to experience the delicious benefits of controlled carbohydrate nutrition.

This way of eating stabilizes blood sugar levels and lowers insulin levels (the fat-producing hormone) which is exactly what is needed to help overweight people shed the pounds they desire.

More diet and nutrition articles are coming soon. For now though you can be sure that I am an advocate of assessing your individual tolerance to carbohydrate and basing your diet around that. This way of eating also assures an abundance of protein which comes in handy for us folks looking to pack on muscle mass. Believe me, there’s more coming on this issue.

    Come on Anthony, MACs are in (ie. APPLE COMPUTERS) I can’t get your ebook or MAD info with my MAC. What’s up with that? I want to read and learn about what you have to say, but I’m not willing to buy a p.c. to do it.
