We can’t base public health policy on one MP’s experience


Sorry Ellie but we get plenty of carbs from vegetables and fruit. The High GI/sugar carbs do not provide the fibre we need, fruit and veg carbs do. Evidence is clear that low carb/high unsaturated fat is a good way to lose weight, improve sugar handling and keep the weight off and it’s not all about calorie deficit. Prole don’t want to accept this because it’s teally hard to give up the addiction that society has created: sugar.
