This is just a quick update as I head out to see Terry Wahls' presentation this afternoon. I will get into this more later, but I am seeing a low-carb slant to some of these presentations.
Here's one point I want to make: just because a low-carb, ketosis-type diet MAY be beneficial for certain disease states, this does NOT mean that it is the optimal diet for someone who is healthy. I think people get misled into this train of thought: "if a ketosis diet helps cancer patients, then that is how you should eat all the time" This is not a logical conclusion.
Case in point: I will be interested in hearing Wahls' position on dietary fat, as I believe it has shifted towards more fat. However, the diet she followed for her MS reversal was low in fat. Would a moderate or high fat diet be even more effective? Who knows, but her case study of n=1 shows that you can reverse disease with a high-carb diet.
