Gee, I wish she had shown some of the healthful choices that DON'T have a high number of carbs, like virtually every food listed in that chart. Where are the green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, and mushrooms? Those juices are virtually sugar water, cooked until any vitamin content is gone.
A comment on some of the Atkins comments:
~ Your brain does need glucose, but your body makes it as needed.
~ Atkins is not a high-protein diet, which can certainly be problematic for anyone with kidney function issues. It's a low sugar and starch program. Many people make the mistake of trying to go low fat as well as low carb, and that leads to high protein. Fat in the diet does not translate to fat on the backside or plastered on the arterial walls.
~ No way of eating can guarantee that you'll never have a heart attack, but certainly low carb plans have been proven to lower blood pressure and insulin levels. Lowering both of those leads to lower incidences of heart disease statistically.
