    Funny, when I read the thread title, I thought it was about the recent trend in the paleo/primal internet world of acceptance of tubers, haha! I agree with the article that sugar and grains are the cause of many modern diseases, but I believe that carbohydrate is beneficial to lean, active people.

    Plus the level of carbs the USDA is currently claiming we should eat would not be beneficial to anyone. The 150-300g that PB recommends for a lean, active person is well below that.

    It's a good article, written in a way that will not scare the mainstream. Love that there is no mention of cave man.
