Bottom line, for body comp carbs of any kind are the same.
good way to incorrectly blanket statement things here. wow
Let me be more specific. For body comp, the carby foods you choose will not matter. Meaning white bread or whole wheat bread. rice cakes or oatmeal. Fat free potato chips or fruit. All the same. If you feel differently, then you’ve never actually tried it out for yourself. Like it was said above by JMo, its the amount of carbs you eat, not where they come from.
I’d agree with this in theory assuming the person was able to get all of their micronutrients. Hopefully it’s been drilled in enough to this forum that calories are what matter most. Basically, it provides a little wiggle room to stray from a superclean, bland diet as long as portions are controlled.
I have a feeling many people in the dietetic field disagree with this but it definitely works. A big ass bowl of oatmeal or a package of pop tarts in the morning will have the same effect on body composition.[/quote]
Unforntunately, alot of people in the dietetic field have no practical hands on experience with body compisition diets. They just know what they’ve learned from their text books. I’m sure Brick can attest to that. Hes probably worked with some real idiots. lol.
I’m currently in the didactic program and not to far away (hopefully) from being an R.D myself. I can tell you, judging by the students in the program, alot of the up and coming R.D’s are completely clueless.
