A little too high

This condition affects everyone differently and what works for you does not work for everyone. Whilst you demonstrate an understanding you should not be quite so quick to judge and criticise others who do not believe as you do.

Your comments were quite condescending to a newbie to the site and might well drive them away..

The body furthermore is entirely capable of making glucose out of both protein and fats, to fuel its cells. However as long as the person keeps shoving fast acting carb (the old fashioned description of starchy carb) in their mouth - it doesn't bother cos it's so easy to gain more than enough a lot quicker from that instead.

If the person eats any veg or fruit - it all contains carb so each person needs to make informed choices in order to eat a properly nutritious diet - and portion size is ALWAYS the key.

It would be difficult to eliminate carbohydrates entirely from your diet. Carbohydrates are the body's main source of energy. In their absence, your body will use protein and fat for energy. It may also be hard to get enough fibre, which is important for long-term health. Healthy sources of carbohydrates, such as higher fibre starchy foods, vegetables, fruit and legumes, are also an important source of nutrients, such as calcium, iron and B vitamins. Significantly reducing carbohydrates from your diet in the long term could mean you do not get enough nutrients, potentially leading to health problems.
