Here’s a fantastic piece on the growing troubles of Big Soda – like the fact that ever fewer people drink soda and that drinking soda is considered the new smoking by more and more people:
Do you want an alternative to the classic beef burger? Here’s an option. Ideally add a high-fat sauce of your choice, to make it even more satisfying and to get the fat percentage up – then it can qualify as strict LCHF.
These tasty lamb burgers are a great change of pace from classic beef burgers. Enjoy this recipe grilled for summer time flavor, or pan seared. We love these burgers served either wrapped in lettuce, or over a big greek salad.
Ingredients, 4 servings
1 lb ground lamb
½ tsp Himalayan pink sea salt
½ tsp black pepper
¼ yellow onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 sprigs fresh oregano, leaves only, minced
1 lemon zest, the zest of one whole lemon

During September we had a record number of updates to the member site. Here’s all the news.
As usual you can try membership one month for free. After that it’s $9 per month, cancel any time.
Membership fees fund our work and allow us to keep the Diet Doctor site 100% free from ads, product sales or industry influence. This – if you ask me – is necessary to provide advice that can be trusted.
The companion book to the great 2012 Paleo movie The Perfect Human Diet has just been published – you can order the book at Amazon.
Everyone in Sweden knows about LCHF, but apparently not everyone knows exactly what it means.
A quick look at my LCHF progress using Excel. The weights have been hidden to protect the innocent!
The idea is to show…it works. If my loss rate stays linear, I will be 100 pound lighter after one year, and at my goal in 18 months.
What does the history of early humans and Egyptian mummies have to do with the origins of the low-carb diet? This is all woven together into an entertaining story by one of the true low-carb pioneers, Dr. Michael Eades.
Dr. Eades’ talk at the LCHF convention earlier this year was one of the most talked about. Especially his interest in Egyptian mummies and the finding of obesity and severe heart disease in this population eating… well, just about what any conventional nutritionist have been recommending for decades: plenty of carbs (mostly wheat), very little sugar, very little fat.
You can buy access to the entire LCHF convention for $49 dollars, or you can see the talk on our member pages with much else (free trial one month, then $9 per month, cancel at any time).
What happens to cholesterol numbers on a long-term high-fat diet?
My fellow Swede Tommy Runesson lost 200 pounds on an LCHF diet, starting six years ago. He continues to eat a very strict LCHF diet (examples can be seen daily on his blog) combined with some intermittent fasting.
So what happens to the cholesterol on this high-saturated-fat diet? Apparently only good things. Runesson has checked his levels every year and just published his six-year results:
Everything looking good!
Of course this is only one person, and it’s only six years. What happens after that? I can tell you what happened to me:
The obscene partnerships where Coca-Cola has been paying hundreds of millions of dollars to health organizations are coming to an end, and the stampede to get away from the Coca-Cola problem continues to accelerate.
Yesterday another termination was made public. Coke’s million$ partnership with American College of Cardiology, representing 43,000 physicians and other cardiovascular professionals, will be terminated at the end of this year. ACC has been paid $3.2 million of sugar money since 2010.
Other organizations who’ll no longer take Coke’s sugar money after the end of this year – announced earlier – includes the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
That any of these organizations ever found it acceptable to take Coca-Cola money boggles the mind. Here are more organizations that should sever any remaining ties ASAP:
- The American Cancer Society – taking sugar money since 2010 (tell them on Facebook)
- The Obesity Society – taking sugar money since 2013 (tell them on Facebook)
- The American Collage of Sports Medicine – taking sugar money since 2010 (tell them on Facebook)
PS: I’ve updated my Facebook review of the American College of Cardiology with the new information.
