* * * ELLIS - ABSURD re: causes of Type II D
- Randy, with all due respect (in re simple/complex carbs), there have been
studies done (documented) of total deprivation of carbs. There is no
documented case of anyone dying from lack of carbohydrates.
Look at Eskimos, who go months on end with nothing but whale blubber and
seal, etc. to eat. The Eskimos had virtually no cases of "white mans "
diseases, till they started eating the "white mans " diet.
We have a tribe of Indians, in southwest, who are noted for their incidence
of type 2 diabetes, they, also, were nearly disease free till starting to eat
These studies can be looked up, if you so choose.
I have never seen Ellis tell anyone to not eat carbs, just watch the glycemic
index of foods ingested, and go from there.
[Hello Mike... Thanks for your post, pointing out that the Eskimos
have not gone into ketosis... however, I wonder if a "white man" would
go into ketosis if he does not eat some carbohydrates...? In any case,
I have never said we should eat like Eskimos... I eat lots of ANIMAL
ORIGIN, plus lots of VEGETABLES, and some FRUITS, and nuts and beans...
I am sure there are some carbs in the sauces too... Dr. Bernstein also
does not advocate totally leaving carbs, since vegetables have carbs
and Dr. Bernstein recommends plenty of vegetables in his example diets
too... but there is no good reason I can think of to eat bread and
cereals and corn and rice, as advocated by the U.S.D.A. Food Guide
Pyramid, and THAT, I am saying, raises glucose levels too much, which
causes diabetes down the road somewhere... this is "according to Ellis"
In any case, IF I AM RIGHT, you win... and IF I AM WRONG, you don't
lose anything... There is no problem leaving spaghetti and pasta and
rice and corn and potatoes and pizzas and tortillas and bread and cookies
and cakes and cereals and sweets and dried fruits, etc., and sugar...
So if there is no problem to leave them, and you leave them because of
my ridiculous and mistaken advice, what's the problem? The only possible
complaint is that you are missing out on all those delicious foods...
I agree, you missed out on delicious foods, but what is the big problem?
By the way, Mike... What is your protocol to increase Quality and
Length of Life? Let's hear it!
Happy January 1st, 2005! Only 364 days left until 2006. - Ellis]
