This is what most of us – especially our Dr’s think is the ideal start to the day. A cup of oatmeal is 60 grams of carbs.
- The National Academy of Sciences recommends no less than 120 grams of carbs per day
- The recommended daily allowance (RDA) is 300 grams of carbs per 2000 calories (about 60% of total calories)
But Grains and the kind of carbs associated with them are not part of our Normal Diet. Here is a very helpful chart that shows what happens as we scale our consumption. At 300 grams a day – you have to get fat.
More here from the source of this chart – Mark’s Daily Apple – and more here on the Missing Human Manual.
I was surprised to find that you are a resident of PEI. I am also. I have been studying life extension for a while now and I think we are in the same age group (I am 61). I would like to meet you sometime for a tea or coffee. I live in Stratford and work in Charlottetown. I can also be reached at 628-5114 (cell) or 569-3075 (home).
All the Best
What a happy coincidence James – I will call soon to find a time Rob
