Sugar, Carbs, Blood Sugar, Insulin Resistance

I found this site which I think has great information about controlling blood sugar levels and also about how carbs affect us.

(Spam link removed, but thank you for starting this discussion!

If you are a woman with a and your waist to hip ratio is over .8 or a man with a ratio over 1, then you might be particularly interested in this site. To find this ratio, measure you waist then divide by the measure of your hips. For me--my waist is 36" and my hips are 44". So 36 divided by 44 equals .81. One of my goals is to lower this ratio by reducing my carbs and eliminating simple sugars. Sometimes I can't use the scale for a measure of progress.

Your best bet is to get a blood glucose monitor and strips and keep track of how your body handles foods, so you know exactly how your body is doing.

This is a new article we are working on, and just added a section about carbs and type 2 diabetes:

Monitoring is exactly the way to go. The site gives you specifics as to when to measure and what that means.

I can't wait to see what peer trainer has to say about this too. I'm starting to think the op is spamming because i've seen this post in a team i'm in.

12:33- thanks for the heads up about the spam. We will remove the link. But it was an interesting subject, no question.

Here is what we wrote:

Low Carb Diets Redefined

Let us know what you think. When we answer your questions and incorporate the answer into the article, it makes it better and better. We like to say that PEERtrainer is a conversation and we mean that!

Since when is linking to a site spam??? That site doesn't sell stuff. It's a great site with tonnes of *ACCURATE* information about blood sugar levels. I'm NOT the OP, but I've spent hours perusing that site.

I'm still challenging PT to actually test their so-called 'slow carb' theory, by checking their own blood sugars.

Atkins is not nor has never been a 'high protein diet'. To call it such is ignorant. It is a high fat diet. South beach, Atkins, etc, tend to suggest about a 30% protein diet; that is not considered 'high protein' even if it is more protein than some people eat.

Eating lots of green veggies leads to less cravings? Well of course- because then you're usually eating less sugar, and it's the elimination of sugar that tends to alleviate cravings. Although, eating lots of FAT- *absent sugar* also eliminates cravings (eating fat and sugar won't help eliminate cravings)

The vast majority of the research saying 'eliminate meat' has either not considered the quality of the meat (cheap bologne vs. grass fed bison) or that the meat has typically been consumed in addition to a high carb/high sugar diet.

I follow a low(er) carb diet. My diet is about 95% grain and sugar free. I don't eat beans or lentils, rarely eat potatoes (sweet potatoes maybe 5 times a month). *EVERY* meal has either meat, whey protein, or eggs (occasionally breakfast is just coffee with heavy cream). Every time I go see my doctor, I get asked by health professionals several times 'are you on any medications' and they never seem to believe me when I say no. None. Nadda.

One can still eat meat, and lots of it, and be in perfect health.

PS- your body does NOT need to take in glucose. It doesn't. Your body can make glucose. It's a simple metabolic pathway of gluconeogenesis.

Fuhrman is a GP who's studies other people's studies. He's still not an endocrinologist, and certainly doesn't seem to pay enough attention to the basic biochemistry in which they specialize.

Sorry. That wasn't a spam it was me. I posted in both places since I was really impressed with the details of how to monitor and didn't know if people read info in both places. Sorry--my bad.

That article did not mention the word "eliminate meat" anywhere.

here is another argument for "less meat" from a Better Homes and Gardens site- not exactly a hotbed of angry vegan propoganda:

http://www.hearthealthyonline.com/healthy-recipes/cooking-nutrition-tips/less-meat-better-health_1.html

Quote:

“If you want steak, have it,” says John La Puma, M.D., medical director of the Santa Barbara Institute for Medical Nutrition and Healthy Weight and a coauthor of The Realage Diet (HarperCollins, 2002). “There is a place in a healthy diet for red meat.”

La Puma believes that if you’re healthy, you can eat a 3- to 4-ounce serving of red meat once a week, but if you want to lose weight, you should limit it to once a month because of its calorie density. If you have risk factors for heart disease, including elevated cholesterol, he suggests eating red meat a maximum of once a month.
