The Low-Carb Oops

For quite some time now I’ve been bashing the very simple idea that low-carbohydrate proponents get repeatedly tripped up on. Everyone from Barry Sears to Gary Taubes lives under the false idea that:1) Insulin is bad.2) Carbohydrates are bad because they cause temporary spikes in insulin levels.3) Eating too many carbohydrates over many years causes insulin to not work very well anymore,...
