Mucin deficiency?

I'm curious to hear Dr Rosedale's take on the hypothesis proposed by Paul Jaminet that a diet without starchy carbohydrates will cause mucin deficiency as a direct result of glucose deficiency. If this is a valid concern, specifically what can we do to mitigate the long term effects without including starchy carbohydrates routinely or including carbohydrate re-feeds?

    Hi Jen,

    There would be no glucose deficiency due to following Dr. Rosedale's Diet ..


    Gluconeogenesis is the conversion of non-carbohydrate sources (pyrovate, amino acids from protein, and glycerol from fat) to glucose.

    • Gluconeogenesis is a metabolic process in the human body that results in the making of glucose / sugar from non-carbohydrates, such as protein and fat.

    • Using the Rosedale Diet just shy of 5 years now, no problems on my end.
