In his latest book "Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It"...
He waits until fairly far along before he finally let's that cat out the bag. Yes fructose, the sugar in fruit, even though it has fiber and water, will still cause insulin issues and cause fat in those sensitive to it. He goes as far to say doctors should really stop recommending more fruit.
Did you mean you "like" Joel? I think your missing a word there. How can I see that lecture? Is it in the audio book? I have that and have not heard it yet.
There is something I like about Joel, I think he means well and helps people, even if he is a bit emaciated himself. I have only recently lost weight in my life by doing something like he preaches, I just fell into it not knowing of Joel. Higher nutrient, low cal, mostly raw, higher fat than 811. I lost weight, never was hungry, but did not drop much body fat %.
This week I started wondering if I have hormonal issues. Could fruit be causing issues in my body much like white bread would in someone else? Now everyone, don't jump on me yet, hear me out. I did 75% - 811 for 75 days, while working out (Power 90) 6 days a week and I did not drop one pound or any bodyfat %. No, the 25% that was not exactly 811 was not bacon either. I am talking like a few taco shells filled with raw vege and maybe 1/4 avocado. Perhaps some oil from some cooked black beans.
I feel I have earned the right to question this path for me after 75 days of killing myself working out and loading fruit heavy. I am very interested that Joel Fuhrman in his latest work might be taking a second look at fruit (for some people). Sort of really strange timing that I am thinking the same thing for myself this week.
My research is leading my towards "insulin resistance" or a syndrome similar to that. I believe it can be tested for. I just found a book and I am open minded to see what it suggests. I can almost bet (I read a LOT) it's going to say...no processed carbs, balance all other natural carbs at meals with some fat and some protein. The book is called "The Insulin Resistance Diet". Feel free to bash it if you have read it or it's been debunked. I am very open minded.
Update on the book, no surprise here, 45% carb / 30 % protein / 25 % fat - eat them together. I love the warning, consult your physician if you have diabetes, liver or KIDNEY problems.
" mixing a protein with other foods counteracts and lowers insulin's reaction to those other foods" (I think this statement can be debated)
While they do suggest not overdoing the protein, they are allowing refined carbs and lunch meat ??? WTF?
?? lol yea... stop recommending the shit we need to survive. That will make you millions of dollars while we all die off...
It's a shame that the primary voice on nutrition these days is that of the fad-diet booksellers, and not the actual scientists doing real work. F'ckin money.
For every Tubby Taubes who says eat blubber to lose fat, there are thousands of scientists who understand that whole food carbohydrates=human fuel, period.
This world is so insane, is there another planet I can move to?
