I’ve been reading the discussion on ‘How many carbs’ and what I don’t understand is why carbs are considered bad.
We eat a healthy diet of all fresh foods with little or no processed foods, and carbs are a big part of it - whole wheat pasta, a variety of rices, quinoa, barley, potatoes, whole grain breads and cereals. Also a lot of the good fats - olive oil, avocados, nuts, fish - a typical Mediterranean diet.
On the one hand I’m reading that a diabetic can eat what ever they chose (within reason) as long as the insulin covers it. (V is Type 1 - no pancreas)
On the other I’m reading about people dramatically reducing carbs to get better control.
(I would think eliminating processed foods would be more important to a healthy diet than eliminating carbs.)
As I am learning that so very many foods have some carbs in them, I don’t see how I could feed V enough to keep him running if I seriously reduced his carb intake. He’s currently at about 225 a day, 2300 calories. He needs to gain or at least, maintain, his weight.
Which is it: Are carbs good or bad?
Is there anyone out there who likes and eats good carbs?
