Also, I really think it's hard to accuse a board that has half a dozen threads devoted to spuds of having, "carb paranoia".
Carb tolerance/intolerance is a spectrum, not an either you have it or you don't condition. There are a lot of people here who are severely carb sensitive with that sensitivity manifesting itself in many different ways. Some have cravings/binging issues, some have weight gain, some have digestive issues, some have neurological issues such as myself and Cori. Many have some combination of the above. These are not things that are readily quantifiable but also things that should not be dismissed.
