I’ve received many emails about this: A Finnish couple is rowing across the Pacific Ocean in protest against sugar and other bad carbohydrates. Their “Fat Chance Row” goes from California to Hawaii, which they’re hoping to reach in August.
You won’t find any pasta-loading on this row - they are eating real food, such as “dried meat, nuts, coconut butter and dried fruit, things that will keep at high temperatures”.
The expedition’s webpage: Fatchancerow.org
The words “Fat Chance” are from the title of professor Robert Lustig’s book about the dangers of sugar. The expedition is done in collaboration with his recently-launched organization Institute for Responsible Nutrition.
This is where the couple is now:
I received a fascinating story from Anthony in Australia about what happened when he ended up in the emergency room, where it was discovered that he had high blood pressure. This led him to search for better health on his own, not following the usual diet recommendations he was given. Here’s his story: Continue Reading →

How can athletes break old records and become faster, better and stronger for each decade that passes? We are the same humans we were a hundred years ago… or?
This is a cool new 15-minute TED-talk on the subject. Sports journalist and author David Epstein is a very skilled speaker. And his eye-opening conclusions are relevant far beyond the world of sports, and could apply to any kind of achievement.
We’re simply given better and better enabling conditions to accomplish things that our ancestors could only dream of… if we take advantage of the opportunity. Continue Reading →
Can you cure your epilepsy without medication? Yes, this seems possible for many. At least you can keep the disease in remission long term with a change in lifestyle – without the need for strong drugs or their side effects.
Here’s Michel Lundell’s story:
Matthias Steiner is a hero in both his home countries, Austria and Germany. Now fans of the former olympic weightlifting champion may follow him on a different journey – a weight loss journey.
The 31 year-old has lost 70 lbs (32 kg) and today he weighs about 260 lbs (118 kg). His goal is to reach 220 lbs (110 kg).

He says he eats both meat and vegetables, while keeping the amount of carbohydrates low, and he’s not depriving himself.
I just got another e-mail from Mexico with an impressive success story! Continue Reading →
A low-carb diet can be good for athletes too, especially when it’s a good idea to lose excess weight:
Today Miller made alpine history:
Here’s the result after 2 years with LCHF… And my lactose issues have gone away for good as well. Going from a 220-lbs (100 kg) couch potato to making it to the Swedish Championships in powerlifting at 179 lbs (81 kg) took me 18 months.
You can congratulate Mogren on Facebook.
Exercise is not a cure for obesity. We already know that from study after study showing marginal or non-existant weight loss from exercise programs.
Here’s a new telling illustration: Americans exercise the most in a a new survey of 8,000 people in 8 countries. And yet Americans have the biggest problems with obesity.
Obesity is not caused by a lack of exercise. Much more important is the quality of your food, which determines how much you want to eat.
Exercise is almost useless for weight loss. But it has many other benefits: More about exercise.
