Insulin Is The Mr Scrooge Of Energy

October 18, 2016

0 Comments

Sometimes an analogy is the best way to understand something and the best analogy I’ve thought of, to describe what insulin is like in the body, is that Insulin is the Mr Scrooge of Energy. Most of us understand Mr Scrooge as the penny pinching miser in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol who kept all his […]

Why Doctor’s Lie To You

February 12, 2016

0 Comments

What kind of person would write something like this? They (doctors) lie to themselves that they are working with Big Pharma to find a cure (for T2 Diabetes). Now, they can believe themselves to be the noble healer facing this deadly onslaught. In truth, they were traitors and turncloaks. They betrayed their patients trust and broke the […]

This is one of the best posts I’ve read on LCHF.  Hat’s off to Larry both for a remarkable transformation and a delightfully poignant, thoughtful and thought provoking narrative. He’s accurately read between the lines of public and corporate opinion and lays the path clear for anyone to follow.  He’s also made the commitment and […]

January 27, 2016

0 Comments

I’ve often talked about a massive bun fight going on in the nutrition science community.   Here’s a good example. Dr David Ludwig MD, PhD, came out with a book recently, Always Hungry?, to help people understand the dynamic way high, highly processed carb lifestyles lead to continuous insulin driven hunger.   Not a good thing if […]

Some thought redirecting charts in here:) I’ve been sharing Chart 2 for a few years now in my presentations And I love Chart 1.   Which finally shows the real curve that Ancel Key’s adulterated. To see more, go to: http://www.businessinsider.com/our-war-on-fat-was-a-huge-mistake-graphs-2013-11 But remember the idea isn’t just to eat more fat and better quality fat.  You […]

New Irish Documentary on Sugar

January 14, 2016

0 Comments

Great documentary.   But the problem is not just in Ireland, it’s in all Western/Modern cultures. The best way to deal with it? Go cold turkey and deal with the withdrawal symptoms with rest, water, salt if you are not hypertensive or in heart failure, and good quality fat. Even WHO’s recommendation of 3-6 teaspoons of […]

Sugar vs Fat and all that

January 2, 2016

0 Comments

It’s January 1 or 2 depending on where you live and it’s time to look at those New Year’s resolutions after a time of excess. I’m still carb tolerant enough to be able to let myself go a little (I do mean a little) over Christmas and New Year and not have much trouble getting […]

He’s got some great exercise tips in his site too. http://burnfatnotsugar.com/ I’ve added him to my doc’s who support LCHF hall of […]

The Fat Of The Land – Vilhjalmur Stefansson

May 28, 2015

0 Comments

If there is one slide I’ve had the most emotional reaction to and attack from in my workshop it’s  this one: I’m currently rethinking my position on plant oils that can become easily oxidised/rancid without you knowing it. Unlike animal fats that you can smell when they are off.   So “oils in a bottle” […]

Will An Apple A Day Keep The Doctor Away?

      Will an apple a day keep the doctor away?    It certainly got Adam and Eve into trouble and it can get us into trouble too. How much trouble depends on how sensitive to carbohydrates you are or, in other words, how insulin resistant you are. What’s a good level of carbohydrates […]
