June 2, 2015

I found Ted Naiman through a FaceBook post of Gary Fettke’s. It’s delightful to see someone else who’s opted for a simple and to the point delivery of why and how to eat LCHF. 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?    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 […]

It’s a good thing that news reports all over the world are coming out in favour of butter. There are some great historical clips in here including Ancel Keys and his dramatic visual of tipping over test tubes to indicate people dying.  You can get a sense of how persuasive he was.  That’s one of […]

My Journey From Meat Eater to Vegan/Vegetarian And Back Again

January 15, 2015

I decided to become a vegetarian when I was in medical school. For me, part of the reason was health.  The ‘fat was bad for you’ idea came into full force when I was training to be a doctor and I didn’t want to have my arteries block up like I was seeing with A […]

 Click the link below to watch or read the transcript: http://www.abc.net.au/catalyst/stories/4126228.htm This was a great documentary that aired recently in Australia. It looks to me like Maryanne Demasi is passionate about how the current recommendations for a healthy diet are killing us but she seems also tied in to the journalists creed of needing to […]

In this video Dr David Perlmutter describes three studies that support cholesterol as one of our allies.  Definitely not an enemy. It’s interesting to note that those studies were published in 2008, 2005 and as far back as 1997.  17 years ago.   The question to ask ourselves is: if cholesterol truly is healthy for […]

I loved this story that Andreas highlighted. http://www.dietdoctor.com/overall-now-completely-new-life It’s great the way P-O was so methodical about his numbers and self care.  His story can help all of us, whether we have diabetes or not. The points that stick out for me are: 1.   I then decided that the goal should be to keep insulin […]

“The time when humanity woke up and got it together:)” Great documentary.  Almost nothing I didn’t agree with.  No doubt, once you get on their email list there will be plenty of marketing that comes with it.  I recommend you keep a level head with that and enjoy the documentary.  It’s free to watch online […]
