David Ludwig: ‘We can certainly do without carbohydrates, which is not to say all carbohydrates are bad. There are some populations that live long and healthy lives despite having diets high in carbohydrates, natural carbohydrates, mind you, like fruit, which digest slowly, vegetables, starchy vegetables… A better question is: what is the optimal intake?'
David Ludwig also asked Pascale to pen a few words for the cover of his book ‘Always hungry'. A huge honour!
Walter Willett from Harvard University (second profile).

Walter Willett: 'The problem is that people often go to extremes. Some promote 'low carb' then proceed to eat lots of red meat, sausages and bacon. If low carb means more vegetables, nuts, fruit, soya, ... then it’s a good thing. It’s all about the quality of the carbohydrate.'
Dariush Mozaffarian from Tufts University (third profile).

Dariush Mozaffarian: 'Eating too much fruit won’t make you fat, give you diabetes or induce a stroke.'
Full interviews are published every month in Feeling magazine, although Pascale Naessens also examines these findings in her latest and seventh cookbook Pure Pascale – Healthy food for healthy living.
