Misconception of the day !

Hi guys!

Looking around cyberspace this morning I stumbled across this rather misguided article, just one of the misconceptions below stated.

"Nothing irks me more than the concept of a low carbohydrate diet. There is such an abundance of vapid, obsessive chatter over why a bowl of pasta or a piece of bread is so threatening to our figures that it seems people have completely lost touch with what constitutes good nutrition.

Now don’t get me wrong, I know that not all carbohydrates are created equal. Bleached flours are essentially void of any nutritional value and white potatoes have extremely high GI values, but why people are so afraid of legumes and whole grains – which happen to be very protein dense completely baffles me.

It boggles the mind as to why someone could possibly think that a processed protein bar or a protein drink sachet, pretending to be a health product is better than a piece of fruit or a serving of hummus"

So low carbers exist on a diet of 'Atkins' bars and protein shakes? well the answer to that is NO and neither do we spend a fortune on processed food products, take a look at the recipes on the blog to see the kind of grub we ACTUALLY eat.
