As is obvious from my posts, I as well as many other scientists and physcians believe a reduction in carbohydrates can lead to immense health benefits. Unfortunately, the pharmaceutical and medical industries will not profit from this approach and as such are not using their advertising clout to market this to physicians and the general public as they would a medication.
The Nutrition and Metabolic Society is the leading advocacy group for the promotion of the health benefits of a low carbohydrate diet.
The 2011 objective of the Nutrition and Metabolic Society is to make low carbohydrate diets the default diet for the general population and very low carbohydrate diets the default therapy for the treatment of metabolic syndrome and diabetes.
The objectives of the Nutrition and Metabolism Society will be achieved when:
- All generally accepted nutrition guidelines are based on a low carb diet for the general population and a very low carb diet for people with diabetes.
- Nutrition is considered an applied science based on metabolic science and research and nutritionist training and certification follows carb-conscious guidelines.
- Health care providers, health policy wonks, the media and the public all understand the role of insulin in fat metabolism as well as in blood glucose control & the importance of limiting carbs, especially for preventing and treating metabolic diseases.
- “Low carb” is synonymous with “healthy.” Advertisers tout low carb “healthy” products. And agencies and foundations funding nutrition research actively seek and fund proposals for fine-tuning low carb diets.
So consider joining the NMS and help in the battle to educate more individuals who are needlessly becoming obese and ill because of their consumption of carbohydrates.
With your continued support we will win the war on obesity, diabetes and insulin resistance.
