Thanks Russell....

From his book it is seeming to me he advocates balancing carb/fiber but no specifics.

He gives the Japanese (I should say TRADITIONAL) diet as an example...white rice but lots of vegetables.

If anyone has more input I'd love to hear it.....

I am starting my ticker again since starting low carb....in the home strech!

I have watched a lot of videos with Lustig, and agree with his ideas. I have a hold on Fat Chance, but it will be a week at least.

I cut out almost all sugar, even lactose, and fructose, when I got gout. I had started low carb already, and after 1 year go off my diabetes meds, but in September 2011, I had foot pain, and in December I was diagnosed with gout. I had been eating off plan, and was back up to 280 by New Years. Despite the gout diet cutting out fat, and meat. I went back to low carb. By February I was back to exercising, and March 20, 2012 was my last gout flare-up.

I do have unsweetened applesauce in 4 oz cups for breakfast, and cheese 1-2 times a month, but otherwise avoid sugar except what comes in my meat, eggs, and vegetables.

Since your carbs affect blood sugar, you want to balance them. If you are eating 40 g a day, and eat them all at 1 time, you can still cause cravings, by spiking the blood sugar. Having 15 at each meal is a much better plan.

To those of you who have read Lustig's book, is the message you are getting no sugar and balance your carbs and fiber?
