Ironman I think you have way too closed of a mind on the whole carb/insulin thing.
Based on what? How exactly am I closed minded? Wouldn't I dismiss it out of hand if that was the case?
If you look at that post you might notice that my entire problem with the study was about logical fallacies. I can't be certain if it was stupidity or deliberate deception, but it doesn't logically follow.
Suppose I say "if you eat nothing but ice cream, you will be fat and unhealthy." "Therefore only low carb is the one true diet." You would object to that wouldn't you? It's a straw man argument, and a non-sequitur. I made it very obviously so, for ease of understanding. They are generally more subtle though.
Have you even read any books on the subject? Like maybe "Good Calorie Bad Calorie", or even better "Why We Get Fat"? Try a book like that which goes over studies, and explains what all we learned from them. Things like that contain some pretty good evidence, all neatly compiled in one place. But even with a lot of evidence on one side, and very little on the other, I still look at studies that are presented to me. I do this despite the fact that I have seen literally hundreds of studies over the years, and they've mostly been crap.
Then of course there is my own undocumented empirical evidence, of countless people that I have gotten to lose weight with those methods, when they were having very little luck otherwise. So yes, I'm very skeptical. But no, I do not dismiss anything out of hand, FFS I explained it in detail. All that despite having read hundreds of crap studies of a VERY similar nature over the course of several years.
You know what is close minded? Dismissing someone's argument out of hand by accusing them of being close minded. That's called an "ad hominem" by the way.
