This is just a teaser…. a snippet of an email from an ADA Minion.
The ADA (American Diabetes Ass) promotes a meal plan that is LOADED with carbs. IF YOU doubt that the ADA MEAL PLAN is a high carbohydrate meal plan… please review my post HERE.
I am a diabetic and since my diagnosis, ALL I have heard from the ADA and it’s supporters (which I call Minions) is that ALL DIABETICS MUST CONSUME large amounts of carbohydrates to LIVE…..to function… to exist! Of course, they do not tell you it is high carb, OH NO…they tell you their meal plan is low carb…but I assure you, it is not.
In trying to convince Type 2 Diabetics to try a truly low carb primal / paleo meal plan, I often hear, “My Certified Diabetic Educator (CDE) says that I need 120g of carbs just for brain function.” or “my nutritionist says that I need to eat 60g of carbs per meal minimum just to survive”. HONESTLY, I thought that these people were “mistaken” …. that they were “hearing what they wanted to hear” because NO ONE ever told me that….. until recently.
Back in June , I posted a food picture, as I routinely do. A woman posted a comment, “you are missing carbs”. Immediately, I knew that this was likely an ADA Minion…or someone “instructed by one”. So I sent her an email …here are the first two exchanges. …..
WOO HOO! ….. Right here it is, she gave me what I was looking for early on… I’ve always wanted someone to tell me, in writing that I need 120 grams of carbs.
1) She is wrong… your body does NOT need 120 grams of carbohydrates to function. In fact, your body needs -0- carbohydrates to function. I do not “promote” a Zero Carb meal plan…. I am just stating a fact… you do not need them to function. A few carbs a day from LOW CARB vegetable sources are actually healthy in my opinion.
2) She’s saying we need more than 120 grams of carbohydrates.
3) She makes a terribly cruel comment about someone we ALL owe much… Dr. Atkins.
More to follow over the weekend….
I have been on a SUB 50g meal plan for a year now…. I AM doing great mentally and physically.
DO NOT LET AN ADA MINION lie to you…. go low carb PRIMAL for your health.
