The Best Answer
Excellent chart, however I'd like to see a link to a larger version of it. I Google'd it and got to this amazing article...
You know what's amazing too is that with all this research out there, and no matter how exposed it's gotten (that eating carbs like we do is making us obese), it's almost impossible to get people to believe you. My family and my long-time girlfriend are almost against me, to put it the best way possible, because they're stuck in this whole flawed science of calories in vs. calories out. I tell them that of course there's some truth but the likelihood of calories in, is if you are having like 4000+ calories a day, associate that with what you ate and you'll see that it's likely your carbs were way too high. I wish it were easier to get people to understand but they won't get it until I've done it. And when I do it, they'll tell me that bloodwork will likely show I'm unhealthy (it won't), and when that fails, what's the other option? Ugh, it gets frustrating being the only one who gets it when everyone you know doesn't. And unfortunately they won't read my sources, so how do you even break through people's closed minds?
I am a HUGE fan of Mark Sisson and his site. Admittedly I am more primal than slow carb (don't hit me) but I see similarities and I think that each community can give the other suggestions and ideas. No one diet is perfect for everyone so we need to share. I think the most important thing between the two is that you should eat REAL food. Period. The major difference is the beans, oatmeal and any grain isn't part of the primal diet. The carb curve helped me get out of my 40 something 10 extra lbs funk that I couldn't get out of regardless of exercise (like P90 and insanity). I had to change what I ate and it has made a tremendous difference in my life.
