“Carbohydrate quality and human health: a series of systematic reviews and meta-analyses” (Reynolds et al., 2019)
-this article was about carb quality not quantity
-fibre is complicated. You can say soluble & insoluble, but really there are many different types and all of them still aren’t even clearly one or the other.
-a low carb diet can also be a high fibre diet. In fact, I guess since my own diet has a lot of low carb (LC) plants, I was shocked that they considered 25-29 grams “high fibre.”
-again, a high fibre diet doesn’t have to be a high carb diet
-while I don’t doubt the effects of various fibres per se, other components of these foods may also contribute to their benefits (vitamins, minerals, other nutrients, etc.).
Is fibre *essential?*
Essential for what?
