Long story short friend is cutting, used to eat bread all the time and other carbs with surgar sources and now he is so scared of the sugar in whole wheat bread he won't even eat it.

Obviously he can do what he wants but I feel obligated to educate him on the subject so he isn't cutting out foods he likes, his diet is literally rice and chicken 24/7.

All joking aside, lots of people believe this. There's even a subforum here for it. Really. Keto. Embrace your inner fat.

The whole of keto doesn't, only the misinformed. There are plenty of keto dieters who know their stuff.

OP, the easiest way is to just ask him why he thinks its the devil and prove him wrong.

Worst comes to worst...he's not hurting himself eating chicken and rice all day.

Sugar raped and killed my family. I'm assuming your talking about the pimp on Freemont Ave.

Beat him with a bag of bread, then with a bag of rice. Then ask him which one hurts more.

If he was refusing to eat fat, or doing something else that was dangerous, I might try to educate him, but there's nothing wrong with what he's doing. I'd probably try to explain it to him once, and then drop it.

Lecturing people regarding diet tends to make them resent you. Not worth it.

^ This.

Like most people, he will eventually buckle from this extremism toward his diet. Just laugh and enjoy your food. He'll eventually come around.
