Our expert says:
My opinion is that the de los Rios lady is not an expert on nutrition but that you find her convincing, so what can I say to persuade you that this is all a lot of nonsense? Let's take just one of her statements: Your No 7: She is talking about an American product! which does not apply in SA. And her mania about wheat. Human beings are omnivores and your digestive tract has been adapted over millions of years to eat all the macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein and fats). It is interesting to note that well preserved bodies of people who died more than 7000 years ago have been found in the ice of glaciers and when their stomach contents were analysed the researchers found that these people had been eating wheat and all the other components of a balanced modern diet.
You are the arbiter of your life, so if you like what Isabel says, then stick to her advice, but don't believe everything she says!
