6 — Your Body and Brain Do Not Need Whole Grains, Carbohydrates, And Fiber — Stop Believing The Scams
Here’s what Rob told us about this trending story:
“My “no need for grains, carbs, or fiber for optimal metabolic health caused a stir among the carbs and sugar addicts. Many argued that I was talking nonsense, and one person even called me a “fake nutritionist” and a “Liar!”
I’m neither. What I am is a realist and modern nutritionist with over seven years of practice with myself and my clients, and I have nothing but excellent results to prove it.
Some say my evidence is “anecdotal” and doesn’t count because it’s not real science.
I’m sorry, but nay-sayers are wrong — what people look for is professionals like me who show multiple fantastic cases of results — not a science paper written by a university student!”
