    There are some good comments on that article; but outclassed by the sheer number of stupid comments.

    She doesn't look too shabby to me for a 40yr old mother of 2. Her own comment was specific to gluten/wheat, so it doesn't sound to me like she cut all carbs out.

    It would surprise me greatly if the next change to her diet was one we would consider healthy. That is not her pattern.

    I think the bit that struck me was the very fact that cutting out wheat and bread was branded as cutting out carbs..its clearly only a few sources of carbs available. I'v come to realise I eat a lot more carbs than I realised, but none of them comprise of wheat or pasta. Im deffo not on a low carb diet, just differnt kinds of carbs than I used to be.

    I assume your basing your information from the press who love to mis quote to get a headline.

    Ditto. Sensationalism!
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    The only thing from the article that I was confused about was the statement that carbs are necessary for a developing brain. I thought only fat was necessary for that...

    I hate it when the media or individuals use the word "carbs" when in fact they mean starches and grains. Some glucose is necessary for a developing brain, but the amount needed would easily be covered by vegetables, organ meats and/or breast milk.
