The War on Cholesterol – which side are you on?

December 2, 2014


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 my brain, will help me ward off dementia, Parkinson’s disease and even death itself, how much have I increased my risk of ALL those things by not paying attention to what THOSE doctors have been trying to tell me for 17 years or longer?

When doctor's disagree 1As I say in Evolving Food Pyramids 1.0 at the bottom of that page. “when doctor’s disagree where does that leave you and me?”  Hopefully you get the point that it’s best to keep a weather eye on the doctors on the leading edge of wisdom and common sense and follow their ‘prescription’ for a healthier diet.

After all, it took 100 years since the idea was mooted, for a very brave Aussie doc, he had to infect himself, When doctor's disagree 2to prove that there was indeed a bacteria behind stomach ulcers.

If it takes another 50 years to prove that fat is good for you (it’s already been 50 years since the idea of fat being bad for you came out and was strongly contested by doctors. at the risk of their careers), how much shorter  might your life be, depending on who you are listening to?

We now know that visceral fat, shown to be created by excess carbohydrates in carbohydrate intolerant people, will take 15 years off your life.

When doctor's disagree 4What are those 15 years worth to you?  What might you be missing out on?  Time with your grandkids and great grandkids?  Time to travel to those places you’ve dreamt about?  Time to contribute what you want to contribute to the world?

It’s not about being irresponsible.  A HCHF (High Carbohydrate High Fat) diet is definitely not good for you.  

It’s about being responsibly aware.  The proof is mounting that a HCLF (High Carb Low Fat) diet is bad and a LCHF (Low Carb High Fat or Low Carb Healthy Fat) diet is the diet of choice for most of us.

I recommend reading and listening to however many doctors and others that you need to, to finally get that, for most people, we picked the wrong macronutrient as the bad guy.  It wasn’t the fat.  It was that sweet stuff that was twisting us around it’s little finger all that time.
