I was away on vacation recently, and while I was gone there was quite a brouhaha in the low-carb community about an article on the Diabetes Health magazine Web site entitled "Type 2 Diabetes: From Old Dogmas to New Realities". In the second part of the article, diabetes educator and dietitian Hope Warshaw was quite negative about carbohydrate reduction, even implying that diabetics may not be eating enough foods which provide lots of glucose, fructose, and other sugars (she advocates 45%-65% of calories from carbohydrate. For a person eating 2000 calories per day, this totals between 1.2 and 1.7 cups of these sugars per day). She said that the concept of a low-carb diet for diabetes is an "old dogma" and that eating all this carbohydrate is the "new reality".
