Bless, you for doing this Ian! My inclination would be not bother and move on, but I’m thankful there are people like you who would persist.
That’s a pretty skeptical view there, Murphy. I tend to agree, though. Hopefully, in this case, we’re both wrong.
I understand what you’re saying Matrika, and I normally would feel the same. It’s like, “if I can understand this, and do even the slightest bit of research, then why can’t a professional?”
But I think the “forest for the trees” analogy applies here. Sometimes when you’re immersed in it, it’s hard to see the evidence that’s all around you. It’s easy to see the minutiae of the bark and the leaves and the branches of the trees, only to miss the evidence of the vast forest all around you.
Now that I think about it, maybe it was easier for me to accept the fundamentals of keto because I was never inundated by the nutritional dogma of the last several decades.
In the short time I’ve been keto, I think we’ve seen tremendous strides toward understanding the science behind it, and I think this amazing transition is primarily due to the truth behind the science. Could we be witnessing an actual biological scientific revolution?
However, when you compare it to the nutritional “science” of the last several decades, it’s just going to take some time to get people to come around. Fortunately there are people, like Ian and many other amazing members of this forum, who are willing to go the extra mile to convince that person.
I hope for the nutritionist’s sake, they are willing to look at the evidence Ian provides, instead of blowing it off as a “layman’s” point of view.
