“It Has Made a Huge Difference in My Life”


So far this year more than 42,000 people have signed up for FREE guidance, meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, troubleshooting tips, etc., via the two-week low-carb challenge.

What could happen if you were to take it? Here’s feedback from this week:


I have been eating LCHF for 3 years but was starting to gain a few pounds so I wanted to look at the menu plan to see if I could tweak my menu to help me. At the same time I am a member of your site (kinda addicted! Lol) and have been studying IF & have been doing a 16:8 and have lost those extra pounds I had gained in about 2-3 weeks! I think this gal is gonna not be eating breakfast anymore! That is so simple for me! Also I realize now, after looking at your site that I wasn’t eating enough fat & the “carb creep” had accidentally snuck in!

Thank you for your site! It has made a huge difference in my life but most importantly my husband’s who WAS T2D 3 years ago but we reversed it with going against his drs & eating LCHF. I appreciate all the recipes that you provide to help me give variety to our menus–it helps us to keep going, doing the right thing for him!

How Obesity Can Protect From Disease


Obesity is not widely considered a protective mechanism. Quite the opposite. It’s usually considered one of the causal factors of the metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance.

I think obesity is a marker of disease, but ultimately it serves to protect the body from the effects of hyperinsulinemia. Let me explain.

Manchester City Coach: Quit Pizza or Quit Training!


So you need carbs if you’re an athlete, right? Not if you ask Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola, who wants his players to quit refined carbs such as pizza and soda.

If they don’t follow his demands, if they’re not close to their target weight, they’re not allowed to train with the team.

  • The Telegraph: Pep Guardiola Bans Overweight Manchester City Players from Training
  • News Week: Manchester City: Why Has Pep Guardiola Banished Pizza-Loving from Training?

    This is all in an attempt to make his players fit and to prevent injuries that may happen due to extra weight. It’s about creating a winning team.

    So… if even these elite athletes (who train A LOT) need to stay away from refined carbs in order to stay fit, perhaps regular people would be better off doing it too.

    “My Body Is Healing. And I Have Reversed Diabetes”


    Magdalena struggled with binge eating, yo-yo dieting and a stressful job which caused her to put on a lot of weight. After a blood test she realized that she had type 2 diabetes.

    Conventional low-fat advice didn’t help much, but then she found a Facebook group and LCHF

    New Study: Even a Liberal 130 g/Day Low-Carb Diet Beats Calorie Restriction For Type 2 Diabetes

    Even a very “liberal” low-carb diet with 130 grams of carbs per day still beats a calorie restricted diet for controlling blood glucose in type 2 diabetes. This according to a new study.

    Clinical Nutrition Journal: A Randomized Controlled Trial of 130 G/Day Low-Carbohydrate Diet in Type 2 Diabetes with Poor Glycemic Control

    The low-carb diet in the study, where the carb count didn’t even get close to a strict low-carb regimen, still lowered both HbA1c and BMI significantly more than calorie restriction did.

    So what’s the lesson? Stop giving bad advice. Stop obsessing over calories. That is simply not helpful.

    People with type 2 diabetes do better by instead avoiding foods that raise blood sugars, i.e. carbs. Period.

    Chris Froome Cut Back on Carbs, Lost 20 Pounds and Won the Tour de France – 3 Times!

    Here’s a true atomic bomb in the sports nutrition world.

    Chris Froome, winner of Tour de France in 2013, 2015 and 2016, now says that the winning concept was saying goodbye to most carbohydrates, and introducing more fatty protein such as salmon and eggs. By doing so, he lost 20 pounds, increased his power to weight-ratio and started winning.

    Business Insider: After Chris Froome Cut Back on Carbs for More Protein, He Lost 20 Pounds, Started Winning the Tour de France, and Became A Millionaire

    It’s quite funny that there are still many people who think that you need to load up on carbs to exercise at all. This is just a great example showing that that simply isn’t true.

    If reducing carb intake can make Chris Froom win one of the most competitive endurance races on the planet, multiple times, how could it help you get into better shape?
