Interested as to how much truth or research there is into poliquin theory of low carb and grain exclusion diet. Sure grains have only been in the human diet for the last 10000 years since agriculture and civilisation began as apposed to meat fruit and vegetables that have been eaten since when first emerged from the jungle; But when humans first emerged into o the grass plains and started eating meat, tubular starchy root vegetables similar to yams or potatoes were staple in the absence of meat, which would be dependant on hunting success.
which brings m to m point as to whether should switch to non grain carbs, meat nuts and berries, he seems to make some logical points on insulin health.
Grain carbs , due to starch contents they raise blood glucose levels and over stimulate insulin levels leading to resistance, also even whole grain listed food are pummelled so fine when they are made into bread and pasta the surface area is increased so much that it causes a huge insulin spike similar to refined wheat anyway. except this effect lasts longer than one from say a piece of fruit! graph insert- Poliquin,
Also i appreciate that alot of what poliquin comes out with is unfounded, correlate pseudo crap, but theres also interesting article ( trying to find it again atm) on how starches react to digestion and water reabsorbtion, starches are only carbs that form sticky a paste due to the high glucose content. It take 1000 times the amount of water to rehydrate, which causes blockage in the lining small intestine hence poor nutrients uptakes? Now am no scientist and am sure that in vivo other chemicals may interfere with or stop this happening.
So what am asking is if there are some professionals with in depth knowledge (preferably degree educated as apposed to people that have simply read over lots of meta analysis such as mself) that can advise on whether this is a good idea or not?
