How Do Nutritionists … sleep at night? I’ll tell ya.

How do Nutritionists sleep at night?   For that matter how do doctors, nutritionists, dietitians, diabetes educators … that push grains, cereals, breads, pasta and rice … sleep at night?

Even more revealing, how can the ‘medical industry’ continue to promote the same high carb, grain based diet to those it harms the most… diabetics?   Carbohydrates cause a blood sugar spike … that requires drugs and insulin to bring down.  Additionally the soaring highs and  the resulting crashing lows can be extremely dangerous.

This reminded me of something  …

“How can the medical industry promote essentially the same diet designed to fatten up cattle for slaughter, as a healthy diet for humans?”

How in the hell can the medical industry promote grains and cereals … crap like this as heart healthy and diabetes friendly??  

This is from Steve Cooksey’s DIABETES-WARRIOR.NET site and is a diatribe against the nutritionists and authorities that continue to directly or indirectly encourage the promotion of foodstuffs that are falsely labelled as healthy for diabetics or folks (like many of us) who need to watch their weight. Cooksey was the guy who tangled with North Carolina authorities by questioning their “advice” as reported in one of my posts.

      Thanks for your comment. Sadly I think there are many nutritionists who would like to make changes that will really help, but they are being constrained from doing it because of business or governmental constraints. Many researchers for instance have only gotten governmental grants to help prove that fat is bad for you. They’d love to do research on how bad carbs are, but there is little grant money for that…
