What the consensus nutrition guidelines profess:
– Carbohydrates are the essential energy nutrient in the modern diet and should provide at least 60% of the daily energy intake in all humans at all ages.
What the consensus nutrition guidelines deny:
– Humans have no essential requirement for carbohydrate.
– There is no known human carbohydrate deficiency disease.
So why do we base a “balanced diet” on an energy nutrient for which humans have no essential requirement?
