hes calling people bullshitters but hes a bullshitter too- he says "And no, eating "poptart-type foods" will not lead to muscle loss any more than eating an equivalent quantity of "clean" foods, nor will it make people "feel like crap". There are literally thousands of people that have done IIFYM/flexible dieting and can attest to this'.... BULL CRAP

Awesome answer. And it applies to most questions I've seen on PH lately.

I think that life's too short to get worked up about others having differing opinions. I think someone railing against "unsupported opinions" of others doesn't have a leg to stand on when offering his contrary unsupported opinions. And I think there's always going to be this back and forth, and so I'd better do what I have been doing, which is making up my own mind.

I have type 1 diabetes and can most defiantly confirm that high intakes of protein will require a does of insulin at almost a rate of about 35% of what carbs normally require! But if you are eating only 30grams of protein per meal then this is going to be a negligible amount of insulin and protein will NOT cause spikes in blood sugar that require a-lot of insulin (causing a "blood sugar roller-coaster") if eaten alone, which is actually what I think the authors of these "low carb" book were getting at.

Also agree with the fact that exercise is important as I can eat as low carb as I like and I will require less insulin if I am eating low carb, but my ratios of the amount on insulin to carbs (eg, 1 unit of insulin to 10grams of carbs) will not change unless I exercise. So basically what I am saying here is that exercise will make a person much more sensitive to insulin- hence, they will use less and less insulin does actually mean you will store less fat as insulin is a fat storage hormone (it allows the sugar in your blood to be changed into energy your body can use/store as fat). Obviously, in order for you not to have much sugar in you blood that can be turned to fat you need to be eating less over-all and as high carb sugary food is easy to over eat, it should probably be restricted/not eaten if someone wants to lose weight. BUT insulin is only responsible for the conversion of about 40% of sugar to energy in the body. Your brain and exercising muscles can actually convert sugar to enery via different methods. Also fat is converted via a different method.

So what the man is saying is true. But he is also twisting what others say about a low carb diet. I mean who doesn't realize that for good health you are probably going to need to combine exercise with a healthy diet... and yes in a way sugar does cause type 2 diabetes, but only if combined with the right genetic and lifestyle factors...

I mean it's kinda obvious to any person that an athlete who eats 300grams of carbohydrate a day in the form of potatoes and rice is probably not going to develop type 2 diabetes and that a fat, sedentary person who consumes 300g of carbs in the form of sugar/donuts/cereal has a much higher chance of developing type 2...
