Even mainstream knuckleheads like Dr Oz seem to be realizing carbs cause diabetes, heart disease, and now Alzheimer's. Raises blood sugar, gives you diabetes, rots your brain.

Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

5,000 Cal Fat <> 5,000 Cal Carbs
Winterbike: What I eat every day is what other people eat to treat themselves.
TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.
bloodorchid is always right
That is absolutely ridiculous... I was "keto-adapted" and let me tell you it freaking sucked. I train hard 3-5 hours a week and I am on my feet climbing ladders, carrying heavy tools, walking, standing etc for 9-10 hours a day. I need a minimum of 80g of carbs to not feel lethargic and sometimes I have 150grams. I feel much better, if my daily or bi-daily sweet potato is going to give me Alzheimer's then so be it.
Last time I checked Dr Oz was still riding the whole grain wagon. So he now hates carbs, wow lets pay attention! Its not like his show is a holy grail of pseudo science!

Oz gives lot of air play to rubbish ideas if it brings in viewers. He even brought in Gary taubes and his quack theories because it brought "controversy" and interest. He brings in them all and he makes it entertaining for the general viewer.
"Carbs" causing diabetes and alziemiers and heart disease is almost comical. Especially when people have been able to reverse diabetes and heart disease on diets that are almost entirely based on carbs.
Type II yes. Improving insulin sensitivity and coming of medications has been reported for decades on low fat high carb dating back to Pritikins early studies.
