Li-i-ife, is the name of the game, and I wanna play the game with you.....
People have been "grinding my gears" by conflating carbohydrates with sugars. All sugars are carbohydrates, but not all carbohydrates are sugars. See Carbs Carbs Carbs. to find out about the five basic different types of carbohydrates.
Krauss et al has done it again. In Separate effects of reduced carbohydrate intake and weight loss on atherogenic dyslipidemia, at the bottom of Table 1 is "carbohydrate, 50% simple and 50% complex". The carbohydrates consisted of half sugars and half starches.
The effect of such a sugary diet is as follows:-
The percentage of pattern B (small, dense) LDL particles increases significantly in proportion to the percentage of Dietary "carbohydrate". The implication of this study (also A very-low-fat diet is not associated with improved lipoprotein profiles
in men with a predominance of large, low-density lipoproteins ) is that high-carb, low-fat diets are atherogenic.
This is not on.
A high sugar diet is atherogenic, but carbs from new potatoes (especially if eaten cold), Basmati rice (especially if eaten cold), sweet potatoes, beans & whole fruits aren't.
