    High-carb (65%-85%) Diets Therapeutic In Diabetes

    Another myth of mainstream medicine continues to (slowly) crumble. The myth of diabetes as the "sugar disease" may be still alive but the evidence against it is quickly mounting.

    The People With The World's Healthiest Hearts Eat A 72% Carbohydrate Diet

    So much for carbs making you fat, diabetic, sick and old. This is a nice corroboration of the other thread I posted on Okinawan diet. The author of this study actually mentions the Okinawan people as second-most-healthy in terms of cardiovascular system. The Tsimane diet has the same amount of...

    A High-carb Diet May Explain Why Okinawans Live So Long

    Most people have heard of the so-called Okinawan "miracle" - i.e. the high ratio of centenarians per capita on that Japanese island. While that ratio is artificially elevated due to increased emigration after WWII, there is solid evidence that Okinawans have better systemic health than the rest...

    Low-protein High-carb Diet Has The Same Benefits As Caloric Restriction

    A recent study posted on the forum claimed that low carb is better for weight loss than other diets. Low Carb More Effective In Weight Loss Than High Carb? But the key question which so far most dieting studies ignore is this. Is the diet actually improving health and increasing lifespan...

    Western Diet Or SFA Strikingly Protective Against Colon Cancer And Mortality

    No, this is not an April's fool joke. Kind of surprising that this study did not make front page news on MSM, but it may be better this way as the study will probably quickly get retracted if it becomes more popular. Several important findings in this study. The first one is probably the...

    Ketogenesis On A High Carbohydrate Diet

    I don't start threads very often (I think this is my second one) but I thought this video was interesting and worth posting. He mentions that a pasta meal with MCT oil is more ketogenic than restricting carbohydrates to 10% of calories. Since strict ketogenic diets are so low in protein and...

    Low Protein / High Carb Diet - Healthier Than Caloric Restriction

    Ray has written about this before, several times across his many articles. He criticizes the caloric restriction (CR) studies due to the fact that the studies used toxic food ingredients, including PUFA.
