so.. you can't answer any of my questions. thats what i thought. 150 grams, like you said, is 600 calories. certainly not minimal carbs. your last 2 statements are utter nonsense. much like the other nonsense you're spouting here. "carbs" are different than rice or potatoes or wheat or even the carbs from vegetables. confusing those terms is half of the problem. the other half is that mark's carb curve is complete arbitrary pseudoscience at its finest. there is nothing inherently unhealthy, dangerous, or fattening about a carbohydrate. period. wheat has antinutrients, gluten, etc. rice is relatively innate. i don't think people here are eating it for its nutrient content. they are eating it to consume more carbohydrates. so yes, it does have a benefit. i think a lot of people on this forum are missing the point with this carb debate, which really shouldn't even be a debate. yes, some people do well on low carb diets, vlc diets, etc. some do it for medical reasons. some do it just to experiment with their body. too many people are stuck in the "if some is good, then less must be better" mentality. the average person does not to be in ketosis in order to lose weight or be healthy. hell, the average person could eat mcdonalds all day long, but as long as they created a caloric surplus, they would lose weight. they might not be as healthy as a guy eating salmon and leafy greens and potatoes, but they would still lose weight the same. for the majority of people, carbs have nothing to do with this equation.
