Do we need to believe in theory, in some people belief or in the scientific evidence and research ??
I would like to support the idea of 0 carbohydrates with better arguments but promoting it with opinions don’t get me any proof they are right. What is true is I have never had the same energy level I had when following an anticandida diet. Moreover, I believe most people are looking for to be “normal” and to resume their life with a social life that allow them to look normal , but no someone from another planet. I have been told for many candida sufferers this diet suck. I am one of them who think it. It is necessary to fight CRC but pretending to live in this way is real a concern. We are human and are alive !! We want fun, parties, social life, and many delicious food this diet limit. The experience and knowledge after this illness demonstrate there are better eating habits but nobody wants to be an slave of any diet for the rest of their life. Less, to say about fruit, diary, and many other healthy things are out this diet. It should be considered a temporary diet and to do the correct things to eliminate the fungal overgrowth to forget it. Symptoms control that keep you obligated to eat conditioned is pure garbage. We should have real and better aspirations, at least I want them. No to say I want to go to straight to a pizza and coca cola but many, many things a normal human do and are necessary to brake this isolation.

The above way of thinking is why America is the most obese country in the world. America, Number One. Something for us to be real proud of.

Our bodies are trained from birth to depend on carbohydrates, then we’re brainwashed by commercials showing the fun and pleasures of high fat and carbohydrate foods as well as by the physicians who wish to keep their patients coming back time after time because of bad health due to overeating and obesity.

The only reason a human body needs more carbohydrates than the amounts which the body produces naturally is because that body is addicted to carbs, therefore it needs the extra carbs the same way a drug addict needs crack.

You stated that I do not supply facts but only theories, so concerning the above paragraph allow me to offer the following:

The following is taken from “The Obesity Epidemic: The role of addiction.”
© 2011 Canadian Medical Association
http://www.cmaj.ca/content/182/4/327.full
“In an attempt to explain the motivation for some cases of compulsive overeating, researchers have proposed that highly palatable foods, such as those that are sweet, salty or high in fat, have the potential for abuse in a manner similar to conventional drugs.”
(Notice this is from the “Canadian” Medical Association, not the US. Unfortunately, American physicians still rely on the public’s overeating habits as one of their major sources of income.)

Additional article: Research on Food Addictions including carbohydrates as reported in “Gastroenterology: March 2010”

Quote: “Do we need to believe in theory, in some people belief or in the scientific evidence and research ??”

Sorry, I didn’t catch the “theory” part of my post. Thought I was posting research and facts.

Quote: I have never had the same energy level I had when following an anticandida diet.

And I’ve never experienced the energy level that I’ve enjoyed for the past six months after I was cured and once my body had broken the addiction of the American higher-than-necessary carbohydrate diet and adapted to an extremely low-carb diet.

Quote: “I believe most people are looking for to be “normal.”

Since you’re in the US, by “normal” I take it you’re referring to the “normal American diet”? The one that gave us the number one position on the highest world-wide-obesity list?

Quote: I would like to support the idea of 0 carbohydrates with better arguments but promoting it with opinions don’t get me any proof they are right.

Just for clarification for anyone reading this, I’ve never stated that a zero carbohydrate diet would be beneficial nor do I advocate a zero carb diet.

Our debate on this subject is closed as far as I’m concerned. We’ve both responded to the other’s opinions, and I’m sure nothing is going to change either of our opinions on this.
