Of course, i already know what the downsides are to eating a higher percentage of carbs, and "bad" carbs at that. But i also already know that fasting significantly ameliorates them. ...Which leads me to this nutritional thought for today:
Kitava is not an example of victory for carbohydrates.
KITAVA IS A VICTORY FOR INTERMITTENT FASTING*.
Those people, as i've heard it said, eat one meal a day comprised mostly of yams, coconut, and fish, late in the day, and then abstain from food until the next day's dinner.
So you see, my highway habits reflect a very old practice, albeit one on the other side of the world. ...Hmmm, maybe my visit down south should include an experiment in which i spend extended hours in the sun, and a lot of fish and sweet potatoes? ;-)
* I'm adding Dr. Fung's blog to my list on the right, he being the modern-most advocate of fasting for health ... or should i rephrase that to say "fasting for health through knocking insulin back from pathological levels to physiological ones"
