In Reply to: Re: Carbohydrate addicts diet WHAT FOODS CAN YOU EAT????????? posted by Alan S. on October 01, 2000 at 22:03:42:

Alan,

I'm sure you are a healthy, bright person, and likely have a great diet, but I do think you need to fully understand what a carbohydrate is. Like you mentioned, there are only 3 types of foods - fat, carbs and protein. Live WITHOUT ANY of them and you will indeed die. Your body absolutely REQUIRES carbohydrates - especially when your diet is so high in protein. A bi-product of carbohydrate is REQUIRED for your body to be able to break down ANY protein. Perhaps you've heard the word ketosis? (If you are on Atkins - you probably have.) Ketosis among other things can eventually kill you - kidney failure being one major way. I don't begrudge you saying your diet is a healthy one - and true - people can live without the simple carbs such as sugar and grains - even the starchy ones such as potatoes and refined pasta. But if you are eating any vegetables at all you are getting carbohydrates. Don't kid yourself and maybe do a little reading. Good luck to you. pc
