LCHF Bun Fight In Action

January 27, 2016


I’ve often talked about a massive bun fight going on in the nutrition science community.   Here’s a good example.

Always HungryDr 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 you want to maintain a healthy weight:)!

Then came this response from Stephan Guyenet B.S., PhD, an obesity researcher and neurobiologist, someone who you think should know what he’s talking about: Always Hungry? It’s probably not your insulin.

You’d be forgiven for being totally confused after reading both of those:).  And that’s the main issue I see happening out there.  It’s a fight for your mind.  What will you and do you believe and therefore which road do you travel?  The High Carb Low Fat HCLF road?  Or the Low Carb High Fat LCHF road?   Whichever road you choose will make all the difference to your health and well being.

So, it’s up to you to choose.

Thankfully David did respond to everyone of the points Stephan brought up.

Of course, if you’d like to make up your mind once and for all you’ll have to put it to the test yourself, if you haven’t already.   Conduct your own little experiment of n=1 (n= the number of people in the experiment.  1 is obviously you:)).  Just make sure you get the right information to conduct your experiment.  Otherwise you might be tempted to think that LCHF doesn’t work, when in fact it was just another faulty experiment.
