I know it is me again. But I have a serious problem that to me is blatently obvious and yet it seems to be the opposite of how most people eat and also diametrically opposed to what is recommended by gov't health officials and most medical professionals. Here is a quote from my last post on http://www.three2treat.com
I asked a brand new, wet behind the ears Resident or Family Doc in Training how much education he received in the area of nutrition during his medical degree. His response was, "Hardly Any"
Hmmmmm. So I decided to pull a Medical Physiology Textbook written by Guyton from the shelf to have a look at what these doctors review in terms of Insulin Metabolism, and the storage of Macronutriants, like Carbohydrate, Protein, and fat. Thinking, there must be a profound reason we are offering the general public a guideline to consume a diet that contains 65% carbohydrate. So I flip it to the pertinent section. And read the following:
"In time, the insulin plays an important role in storing the excess energy substances. In the case of excess carbohydrate, it causes these to be stored as glycogen mainly in the liver and muscles. It causes fat storage in the adipose tissue. Also, all the excess carbohydrate that cannot be stored as glycogen are converted under the stimulus of insulin into fats also stored in the adipose tissue"
Okay, so they are taught in medical physiology that insulin is the main stimulus for fat storage. So I ask myself, what causes increased levels of insulin in the human body?
