Blood Balance Formula

The debate, or perhaps it should be Blood Balance Formula Review described as the controversy, continues over the merits of high carbohydrate diets compared with low carbohydrate diets. High carbohydrate diets are defined as those being about 50 to 60 percent of total calories, much in line with the American Diabetes Association's recommendations, whereas supporters of the low carbohydrate diet commonly recommend that only about 20 percent of calories should be from carbohydrates. Certainly much research supports the case for lower carbohydrate intake and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) has itself carried out studies that obtained results, reported on by them, that confirmed the effectiveness of the carbohydrate restricted diets. However, the ADA maintains its position on the higher carbohydrate approach, claiming that theirs is a diet that is more likely to be followed by the individual diabetic over the long-term but that the low carbohydrate approach becomes less attractive and less likely to be followed after its initial period of implementation. The matter was discussed and debated recently at a symposium held during the 45th Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes where it was stated that it is not the science regarding the diet that is controversial but it is the policies proclaimed by the national diabetes associations that is controversial. An example then cited being the ADA who, when asked for their recommendations, say they make no specific diet recommendations but, in fact, do recommend a high carbohydrate diet while giving grudging support for a lower carbohydrate diet. Speaking at the symposium, Dr. Feinman, professor of biochemistry at Downstate Medical Center (SUNY) in New York, an advocate and research scientist on the subject, whose work and conclusions I have reported on my blog and elsewhere recently, claimed that official associations were reluctant to fully accept the available supporting data and that scientists engaged in the field were underrepresented on panels determining diabetes and dietary policies. Elsewhere, in the past, Dr. Feinman, PhD, who is also the founder of the Metabolism Society and co-Editor-In-Chief of the journal, Nutrition & Metabolism, has stated "Many people are essentially cured of their type 2 diabetes by low carbohydrate diets but that message is not getting out". While agreeing that many patients have difficulty staying on the low carbohydrate diet, he contends that for those who do, it can mean a life free from insulin and diabetic drugs.
