We'll just have to wait a few more days/weeks until some of the low carb experts comment on the findings to us non-scientists. In the meantime, you might be interested in this oldie-but-goodie from Dr. Eades. His final comment is:
"The interesting thing about fructose is that in small amounts it increases insulin sensitivity. The amount probably found in the average Paleolithic diet would make the entire insulin/glucose regulatory system work better."
I got my info from Gary Taubes books. I had read and re-read before my brain could comprehend & absorb. He writes scientifically re: food choices. Craving sugar (no matter how the sweet is ingesteed) creates more need for the sweet. Same thing with flour, potatoes, pasta, processed food. It's confusing that fat cells can be created from fake food (including fake sweet). Connie
