Dairy Products Carbs?
by: Steve

Hi,

Thanks for your comments and question.

Here are some examples of low-density carbs:

Carrots, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, onion, spinach, celery, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, etc.

Here are some medium-density carbs:

potato, pumpkin, sweet potato, peas, corn, apples, bananas, skim milk, plain yoghurt, etc.

More examples are available here: Healthy Diet Plans Format

I consider most dairy foods to be carbs because they tend to contain more carbs than protein.

Here are some examples:

100g plain yoghurt 11g carbs and 3g protein

100g diet yoghurt 12.5 carbs 2.5g protein

100mls skim milk 6.5g carbs 5.5g protein

The exception is cottage cheese, which contains more protein than carbs:

100g skim cottage cheese 1g carbs 15.5g protein

I guess this is a similar situation to beans, whereby they tend to be one of the main protein sources for vegetarians. However, beans contain about twice the carbs than protein!

100g 3-bean mix 16.5g carbs 8g protein

I hope this clarifies this issue.

Once again, thanks for your comments and question and for bringing up an interesting topic for discussion.

I wish you the greatest success with achieving your physical goals.

Cheers,

Steve.

Too Much Fruit

The article is a good realization for those people that don’t know that everything needs to be consumed in moderation no matter what it is.

These articles are also good for personal trainers trying to give the correct nutritional advice and keeping up their research about nutrition.

See Durianrider

Perhaps you should search for durianrider on youtube. You might need to revise your Fructose theory. He eats several thousand calories of fruit/fructose every day and is pretty slim. No fat in sight.

His bloodwork is always perfect and he is as fit as a fiddle.

He is not a short termer as he has been eating this way for 14 years.

Just my observation.

Regards,

Gary.

Excessive fruit consumption
by: Steve

Hi Gary,

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

However, I strongly disagree with that approach to fruit consumption based on the facts, not theories, made in the article.

One person's results certainly does not constitute a study and I don't know of any nutrition expert who would recommend that level of fruit consumption.

Furthermore, there are a range of possible health problems that may result, not the least of which is excessive potassium in the body if an excessive amount of bananas is consumed.

Since this website is focused on weight loss I suggest that people stick to the recommendation to only have 2 pieces of fruit a day.

Regards,

Steve.
