I find most people are not very confrontational when I tell them I don’t eat sugar or starch. It doesn’t dawn on most of them that that consists of about 75% of everything they eat.
We live in an era of nutritional ignorance. Our doctors spend less than 2 days learning about nutrition in med school and half of it is wrong. If everyone is the health expert they pretend to be, then two thirds of us would not be diseased and fat. The word on the street is obviously wrong.
