A recent commenter on another blog made a statement along the lines of: "Everyone knows the metabolic pathways and biochemistry involved, so why they continue to advocate carbs is beyond me." This made me curious enough to investigate further, but my lack of formal education and the limitations of my google-fu are bumping into a glass ceiling. Can anyone elaborate the "basics" that are not disputed by anyone which, if their implications are properly followed, inevitably lead to recommending carbohydrate restriction? I've read the Cliff's Notes of Good Calories, Bad Calories, but what I'm looking for is something more along the lines of what might be presented in a first year biochem class.
