Can anyone explain why I can eat a tub of ice cream or lots of chocolate everyday with no apparent issues but if I add 'safe' starches instead I start gaining body fat within days? In both cases we're talking about adding in 100g carbs to a... (more)
Can anyone explain? This is what has made my "yeast-overgrowth"-like symptoms go away, up until I consume more of this group: even natural sugar (honey, 100% maple syrup, raisins, etc.), salt (may or may not be a malefactor) and especially cooked... (more)
I've always been a little confused about this. I hope one of you nutritional science nuts can shed some light on this. I've seen many fructose/sucrose/glucose related questions on Paleohacks, and inevitably someone mentions that sucrose is simply... (more)
From my understanding all carbs break down to three camps, fiber, glucose or fructose. So on food labels why doesn't total carbs == fiber + sugars? What is the missing component? Bonus question: for the missing component mentioned above, using... (more)
It's starch. The rest is starch. For the life of me, I never understood why they didn't annotate it in the lower column.
i have just been looking at the labels on two jars of different blackstrap molasses, and also checking out various online nutrition databases. In all cases there is a (varying) difference between total carbs and total sugars, but for the life of... (more)

http://thepeopleschemist.com/splenda-the-artificial-sweetener-that-explodes-internally/ There don't appear to be any references and it seems like a blog post. I'm not sure what to make of it. Does anyone have scientific references or some more... (more)
If we decide to eat 100g of carbs, we could be eating 50g of sugars (20g of fructose) if we choose bananas or 16g of sugars (4g of fructose) if we choose sweet potato. Maybe the carb-count metric is defunct and needs to be replaced by a count of... (more)
