2010 Dietary Guidelines: “Let’s not fuss with blood sugar…”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The 13-member Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) is charged with providing Americans:

 ”the latest, science-based nutritional and dietary guidance”

But will the soon to be released 2010 Dietary Guidelines provide sound advice to the 75 million Americans who are already diabetic or pre-diabetic? Will the guidelines discuss the unique ability of carbohydrates to elevate blood sugar and insulin levels?  

Not likely.

In the hundreds of pages of transcripts and in the proposed 2010 Dietary Guidelines released in June, 2010, the words “blood sugar” do not appear. And you can expect the 2010 Dietary Guidelines to round up the usual suspects, sodium, cholesterol and saturated fat

At the same time, the report will go real easy on sugar:

. “Added sugars are no more likely to cause weight gain than any other source of energy.” After all, “A calorie, is a calorie, is a calorie.”

Sugar is okay up to 25 percent of calories (see above). A calorie of high fructose corn syrup (HFC) is no different than any other calorie (see above). And there’s no conclusive proof that we should rate carbohydrates by how fast they release sugar into the blood.

To lose weight, we must go on a semi-starvation diet and commit potentially injurious strenuous daily exercise.

Sound familiar?

Dietary Guidelines that do not mention “blood sugar” will not stop the “dangerous runaway train.” Instead, we are facing a academic, government, and medical elite unwilling to step on the toes of the giant U.S. food processing industry.

You can almost hear some committee members saying, “Gee, this doesn’t sound right – 25 percent of calories as sugar – but that’s where the science is…” – because that’s where the money is!
