There Is No Lack Of Glucose On A Low-Carb Diet, Researchers Find

Dr. Jeffery Browning studied glucose distribution on low-carb

Whenever an honest discussion of low-carbohydrate diets comes up within the realm of science and medicine, invariably two common points of disagreement with them arise: 1) your body can’t get enough energy to sustain itself in the absence of carbs from your diet and 2) you are causing damage to your liver. Both of these are simply red herrings in the greater debate about what constitutes a truly healthy diet. While much of the focus on livin’ la vida low-carb has been on weight loss over the years (which it works VERY well in producing), the real benefit that this way of eating affords people is how well it works with the natural functions of the body to produce tremendous health results.

For more than three decades, we’ve been told by the media and those so-called health “experts” in America to simply cut our fat and all of the weight and health problems we have will just disappear. Unfortunately, what has happened is all that fat has been replaced with something even more despicable–CARBOHYDRATES! Not surprisingly, obesity rates are up astronomically and metabolic diseases that once seemed unheard of have become the norm. Things like non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) which can lead to inflammation, fibrosis and cirrhosis have all been brought on by this increase in carb intake, but it’s been difficult to confirm this association to this point. But now we have a new study that provides even further evidence of this undeniable fact about what carbs are doing to our bodies.
