The other day I was listening to Dr. David Kessler talk about this issue and his book: Fast Carbs, Slow Carbs. As far as I'm concerned, it just causes confusion. Let's go back in time to Jack LaLanne...simply, he told us the items to stay away from. Nowhere, in his presentation is the word carb. Thank you Jack. Bottom line: stay away from junk food. And, take the advice of Michael Pollan: "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants." That ain't so difficult to understand.
