Assem Malhotra talking absolute nonsense yet again…
1/ Firstly, which NHS "dietary advice" is he criticising. We're never told.
2/ Then we find out it is not NHS guidance, but Public Health England eatwell plate
3/ And what does eatwell say for people on medication say diabetics? #individualisation
4/ This is an entirely unreferences assertion.
5/ surely he didn't just #anecdata #extrapolation
6/ Again, an assertion. Which assumes everyone follows dietary guidelines. There is very little evidence to suggest they do.
7/ The "fabled" med diet. Now hijacked by the those who wish to misleadingly label it as low carb. No evidence this is the case.
8/ Malhotra's favourite citation - PREDIMED was ~40% CHO for control and interventions. Where does he get the idea med diet is low carb? #cognitivedissonance
