It is the glycaemic response to, not the carbohydrate content of food that matters in diabetes and obesity

That’s a great link that you shared. Thanks.

I’d suggest also reading blogs and emails by Dr Jason Fung. The issue he highlights is insulin response.

Some people may have a “normal” glycaemic response to a given carb dose, but as they have reduced insulin sensitivity, it requires a large insulin response. I suspect that this is missed with the typical oral glucose tolerance tests.

Very interesting stuff!

Thanks Jamie, I saw this article when reading Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt’s page. I only forward the article for others viewing.
