How are we ever going to win the battle against diabetes with studies like this ?

Sounds like the Swedish kronar is talking loudly.  Can't believe the stupidity presented in this "study".

Yeah, this is what we are told by the "experts".  I spent a whole day in a class given by a CDE and this was one of the things we were told.  I proved to myself by testing that it was bogus.  Whole grains are carbs and my bg raises just as high.  I don't know where they get their data or who they are using for subjects but it just is not true.

Oh they're getting their marching orders from the carb-driven contingency . . . they ones with the big wallets. It should be a crime, but of course there's that free speech thing going on, so they can lie their asses off.

This is so frustrating!! And the saddest thing is that most newly dx'd diabetics believe it and don't do any research on their own. It is criminal!

Pinterest pulls new articles based on your past searches. I only once searched for diabetic diets but have since been offered over a dozen all of which feature grains and fruits; I notice similar ones prevalent in those grocery store recipe magazines. While most contain threads of reality, they’re universally off base. Additionally, I’m seeing quite a few articles trying to demonstrate health risks of the various “keto” diets which seems falling from favor.

It’s little wonder we encounter so much resistance from so many, especially newly diagnosed diabetics. If you didn’t know better, you’d think switching to whole wheat pancakes served with fruit, sugar-free maple syrup and cinnamon would keep your blood sugar low...

T'was the same with me. But I am learning now. Better late than never  :-[

Yes, I’ve encountered a couple of those write-ups lately. And there was a concentrated campaign against coconut oil lately.
