I personally wouldn't eat tilapia or packaged fish but I guess it's an improvement over what they had in the past. I wish they replaced the peanuts with real nuts.

OK, so this week they specifically listed the featured recipe, Spicy Thai Fish Wraps, as "low carb".

recipes.sparkpeople.com/recip
e-detail.
asp?recipe=2320373


Not uber low, and features prepared fish, not fresh, but under 10 net carbs. Hmmm. What's this crazy world coming to!?!?

Woubbie, awesome list, thanks for posting this. The distinction between fructose and glucose is really important as well.

That got me to thinking - how much sugar/fructose IS in various fruits? Found this nice little list on a food intolerance site:

He,he, I think all those people who are doing it but not counting the sugar in the fruit they are eating are cheating. But I guess we all are only accountable to ourselves in the end.

I'm glad to see SP is opening up a bit! even baby steps are an improvement.
Now if we can just get the recipes more "friendly"!

The Sweet Tooth Challenge looks interesting...I joined just for the "halibut." I think I'm cheating, though...because I really don't have a sweet habit. Don't ask me to do a bakery challenge! LOL

A step in the right direction and a hopeful sign.

I just wish that SP's so-called nutrition experts would stop telling people that fat is bad and sugar is ok.

On a totally unrelated subject, this alternately grossed me out and cracked me up:

action.momsrising.org/cms/thanks/sma
sh
thedonut_x2?action_id=11055357&akid=R>4106.157852.mM-r5L&ar=1&form_name=act&rd=1


The Mom's Rising website featured donuts, but you can go directly to the Smash Your Food page for some fun:

smashyourfood.foodnme.com/

On the original subject, I'll grant you that these recipes are still way too low in fat for most of us, but for many people lower carb, higher protein, moderate fat still works pretty well. If you start at 400 pounds, the health benefits will still be immediate. I'm just surprised that a SP article even refers to low-carb in anything but an unflattering ("dangerous and disastrous") light.

South Beach type diets have always been more accepted than Atkins and that seems to be the theme here, lower carb and higher protein. It looks like a good start, but there is the risk of backlash, when people find out that they don't get any better because increasing the protein instead of the fat to make up for carb calories often does not work, especially for people who are not very serious and devoted to exercising a LOT.
I'm hopeful that this time around LowCarb-HighFat will also be taken seriously, in part because of the strong overlap between Atkins and Paleo/Primal who reach somewhat different but growing segments of the population.

It's a tiny start! My hubby and I were just discussing this week how the first time I did Atkins, people (including doctors) were practically screaming and running in circles. Doctors HATED it. And now doctors are starting to recommend it for diabetics (must not be the death trap they used to claim, huh? lol)

I remained jaded and somewhat cynical, but I would be thrilled to see the Spark Minds move away from the Fat-Free/Meat-Free/Soy-Lovin'/Whole Grain theme song... I think a greater emphasis on strenght training in the outside world has increased focus on the need for more protein and hopefully that is flitering into Sparkville!!
