The food pyramid was revised to the high carb content years ago, and the "experts" are considering revising it again.
The fact is, some people can handle the high carbs, and others can't. And not all carbs are equal. Some turn into sugar immediately and raise the blood sugar level. What is not immediately used for energy is stored as fat. Some of us are too sedate or have too low of metabolism to be eating much carbs.
I recently read a book (The Metabolic Typing Diet)about finding out my metabolism type. The test is right on. The book is inexpensive, and you can find out what protein-fat-carb ratio you need as an individual, and a lot of diet tips. The trick is to understand your own body needs and then make a life change, and not "diet".
I am quite sedate with knee problems, and I eat more than I ever have, and don't miss sugar or white flour products. People come up to me constantly to congratulate me on my new thinner look!
