A comment on a Facebook post:
#AHS16 was rather fantastic, overall – or at least an obvious improvement from the low carb BS peddling that it was early on. Stephans presentation has to be one of my favorite this year.
But the question is: Have you, by any chance, had a “clash” with this years Nora Gedgaudas’ presentation? Because hooooly shit…
Her arrogance is beyond belief. In the Q&A she practically said to this one guy, who apparently noticed an improvement when he introduced starches into his diet, that “he is sick, because otherwise he wouldn’t need glucose” and “he better find out why he needs carbs before he fucking dies because of the poisonous glucose.” – obviously I’m paraphrazing. But in al honesty, her whole presentation was totally ridiculous. Amongst other silliness, she also abused Weston A. Price’s findings to manufacture “evidence” for her low carb fairytale.
What someone needs to do is go to AHS17 or whenever the next damn AHS is gonna be and explain to all of those “evolutionary” minded low carb gurus that Humans, in fact, evolved in the tropics for millions (like tens of millions) of yars – how can anyone miss that?! There is no winters, or ice age or whatever carbohydrate shortage there. In the tropics there is only dry and wet season – and the only food that is actually seasonal there is animal foods NOT carbohydrates. Who made paleo low carb? How is this even possible? And to present the Inuit as paleo poster boys? Are you fucking kidding me? They came at least 5000 years after agriculture. Is this just me, or is the whole low carb paleo movement delirious?!
I saw them both at PaleoFX. We never exchanged even a glance.
Same with the DR. GRACE, who goes around the world trying to scare people off of anything she doesn’t approve of. She’s next, when I get around to it.
But just as dismissive.
