Hi Sweet Life Team,
Some time ago while watching the programme Carte Blanche presented by Derek Watts, he and Professor Tim Noakes were discussing the pros and cons of eating a carbohydrates meal versus a protein meal. I was rather taken back when Prof. Tim Noakes stated that if you wanted to lose weight you should rather go for the high fat protein food and virtually discard the carbohydrates. At the end of the programme Derek Watts stated that he had tried it and had lost 8kgs.
I find this totally contradictory to all dieticians’ meal plans which categorically state that we should decrease protein and favor low glycaemic index carbohydrates.
I have had friends who have lived by the protein rich meals but they will never be able to tell you what a wonderful way to eat because they have all died from excessive cholesterol despite being relatively active.
So what is the answer: eat fatty meals and die slim or live a long life being slightly overweight?
Patrick Holford states always eat protein with carbohydrate – it lowers the G L even more. Did I miss the point in the programme or am I just too thick to understand what was being said?
Please advise and clear my sugar soaked brain!
