Comment: The common conception that carbs should be the bulk of our diet, in the form of grains, cereals & breads, has been promoted for over 35 years by the USDA in what is called The Food Pyramid. The Food Pyramid was not based on true science. Since that time, type 2 diabetes has increased over 35% in this country. It does not appear that their recommendation was good for us, if you study the stats. Also, while Monounsaturated Fats are the best, Saturated Fats have had a bad rap as well. It is my opinion and the opinion of many other researchers, that this increase in type 2 Diabetes as well as the high rate of Heart Disease, should be attributed more to the increased intake of High Glycemic Carbs, so prevalent in the American Diet.
If you would like to reduce carbs in your diet, but find it too difficult to stop eating enough of them to make a big difference, try another natural approach, NSI Carb Blocker. This product blocks the enzyme responsible for the absorption of carbohydrates.
