Re: Leaky gut, fatty liver, and belly fat

Your comment doesn't make sense Anthony. If someone was wanting to lose weight, how could they do it without going into caloric deficit? You have to restrict calories and may even need to exercise, depending on how overweight you were, to burn off the excess calories. To do this you'd most likely need to minimise intake of both high GI carbs and fat. So a caloric deficit can be a good thing.

You also know nothing about the metabolism of humans and other mammals. Excess glucose in the body which can be derived through an excess of carbohydrates in the diet, including starchy vegetable such as potatoes, is first stored in the body as glycogen, in both the liver and muscles of the body. Once these areas are at capacity the body converts any excess glucose to fat, through the process of lipogenesis. That's why the low fat diet that you hear being preached makes no difference to the rates of morbid obesity, type 2 diabetes or fatty liver. Carbs can make you fat as well.

The body can also reverse the process and re-convert the fat into glucose through a process known as gluconeogenesis if it needs to draw on the stores of fat once there is a caloric deficit. As stated above, this is how one can lose weight. Without this mechanism humans wouldn't be here today.

The problem is that if you consume too much energy in the form of fats and carbohydrates (including potatoes) you end up with fats (both from the glucose that has been converted to fat and dietary fats) being stored as fat in the liver. Which can obviously lead to fatty liver.

So as you can see, carbs are in no way a panacea in terms of keeping the liver healthy or preventing obesity. They can also be a major problem in terms of candidiasis if you consume the wrong type of carbs. These are the refined carbs such as white rice, white pasta, white bread, table Sugar etc and the naturally starchy carbs such as potatoes that cause a spike in blood glucose levels. It's this spike that creates the problem with candida sufferers, as it fuels a feeding frenzy for the candida. This is why AngelofEventide felt so bad after trying out these potatoes that you go on about so much. In fact, research has shown that more than 30% of a candida biofilm is made up of glucose, so this is what you are more than likely feeding when you consume high GI sugars if you suffer from candidiasis.

I also agree with Street doctor in that I don't think anybody here is cutting carbs completely, and if they are, they obviously haven't bothered to do enough reading online or via books about candida or nutrition in general. I can't imagine that anyone would completely cut out green vegetables for example. All throughout my own treatment I've been eating quinoa, buckwheat, oats, brown rice and green veg.

So as you can see you really have no clue about carbs/fats/fatty liver/candida, yet you are continually spreading mis/disinformation, and have pretty much ruined the candida and candidiasis forum here on Curezone. To top it off you have prob never even had a candida problem.

Sorry for the long post.
