Professor Cynthia Kenyon, whom many experts believe should win the Nobel Prize for her research into ageing, has discovered that the carbohydrates we eat — from bananas and potatoes to bread, pasta, biscuits and cakes — directly affect two key genes that govern youthfulness and longevity.
We have Paul Jaminet talking about "Safe Starches" and we have Dr Ron Rosedale saying there are no safe starches in the posting by Jimmy Moore and their back and forth on PH. http://livinlavidalowcarb.com/blog/more-safe-starches-stuff-and-why-ive-decided-not-to-test-them-on-myself/12068
Are you willing to cut back your non veggie carb intake and sugar intake to almost zero if you knew you would live a long life free of disease?
Professor Kenyon, based upon her research has done just that in her own life.
Carbohydrates, and especially refined ones like sugar, make you produce lots of extra insulin. I’ve been keeping my intake really low ever since I discovered this.
I’ve cut out all starch such as potatoes, noodles, rice, bread and pasta. Instead I have salads, but no sweet dressing, lots of olive oil and nuts, tons of green vegetables along with cheese, chicken and eggs.
How about you? Is giving up some of your short term pleasures in food worth it to have a long, healthy life?
