Watch the LCHF Movie Run on Fat – With a Discount Or For Free

Carb loading apparently just hit the wall.

What if everything you knew about sports nutrition was wrong? What if there was no need for carbs or sports drinks when you exercise? What if you could – in fact – break records rowing across the Pacific Ocean without it?

Those are the questions behind the LCHF movie Run on Fat, which was released earlier this year. It’s the follow-up to the popular movie Cereal Killers, and it can change how you fuel your exercise sessions forever.

I really enjoyed Run on Fat. You can watch the trailer above and now the entire movie is instantly available on our membership site:

How to Keep Motivated to Exercise

Exercise is not effective for weight loss but it’s great for many other things – health, strength, well-being etc. Did you want to start exercising once and for all in January this year? Have you been able to keep it up?

Keeping up your drive and enthusiasm for exercise can be tough — and there’s nothing easier than relapsing to old habits. But arm yourself with the right strategy and motivation, and anything is possible. Today our expert on exercise gives his best advice.

“Women Shouldn’t Run – and Everyone Should Avoid Coffee!”

Dr. Michael Fox gives good advice to a female cruiser

Dr. Michael Fox gives good advice to a female cruiser

Should women avoid running? And should you – male or female – stop drinking coffee? Those controversial messages were delivered by Dr. Michael Fox with his lecture on the Caribbean low-carb cruise recently.

We invited our moderators to write guest posts here at the blog. Here’s report number four – about Dr. Fox’s message – by moderator Peter Biörck:

Guest Post by Peter Biörck

Women shouldn’t run!

One of the more refreshing and appreciated presentations on the Caribbean low-carb cruise was by Dr. Michael Fox. He works as a physician in a fertility clinic in Jacksonville, USA.

Since 2004 he has used LCHF for treating women with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and who have not been able to conceive. This became a great success! Before they started dietary treatment fewer than 50 % of women got pregnant. With LCHF as part of the concept about 90 % conceive and often within a few menstrual cycles after being advised by the clinic.

Low-Carb Performance

Can you exercise without eating lots of carbs? Can a smart low-carb diet even IMPROVE some aspects of your physical performance, lowering your excess weight while increasing your fat-burning and your endurance?

These ideas used to be heresy, but now there are athletes out there proving that it works – in some cases completely destroying their competition. Athletes are now breaking records, doing what was once considered impossible.

Professor Stephen Phinney have been researching and testing these ideas for a long time. I recently sat down with him for this interview. In it, Professor Phinney discusses the basics behind low-carb performance, who can benefit the most from it – and how to do it right.

You can watch the first 12 minutes above.

More knowledge

There’s an 18-minute second part to the interview, where Professor Phinney goes through many more practical tips and answers common questions. This second part is on the membership pages (free one month trial).

Sugar-Fighting Doctor Gets Censored?

Dr. Aseem Malhotra

The fantastic Dr. Aseem Malhotra was on Australia’s Lateline show recently. He keeps up the brave fight against the disinformation from Big Sugar about “balanced diets” and exercise. There is zero need for added sugar in a balanced diet.

Lateline: Cardiologist says sugar and carbs are the main cause of rising obesity rates

Dr. Malhotra may soon take the title of Big Sugar’s enemy #1 from Professor Robert Lustig.

At the same time, Dr. Malhotra’s recent paper – the one saying that “you cannot outrun a bad diet” – that started his publicity tour seems to have been censored. It’s “temporarily removed following an expression of concern”.

I wonder who is “concerned”. Who could possibly be concerned about telling people the truth about the dangers of junk food?


Let’s Stop Lying About Physical Activity and Obesity


Big Headlines: “You Can’t Outrun a Bad Diet”

You can’t outrun a bad diet. The obsession with counting calories and exercise is mainly a way for the junk food industry to move the spotlight from their problematic role in the obesity epidemic.

This is the message in lots of media today, after a great editorial from Dr. Aseem Malhotra, Professor Tim Noakes and Professor Steven Phinney:

BBC: Exercise ‘not key to obesity fight’

Skynews: Experts say you can’t outrun a bad diet

BJoSM Editorial: It is time to bust the myth of physical inactivity and obesity: you cannot outrun a bad diet



Of course this mirrors the message in the video interview I did recently with Dr. Malhotra, the first author:

Let’s Stop Lying About Physical Activity and Obesity


Let’s Stop Lying About Physical Activity and Obesity

There were many impressive people at the recent Cape Town conference, but to me two people stood out the most. One of them is the British cardiologist Aseem Malhotra. A man who is not the least bit afraid to eloquently tell the truth that most people keep silent about.

Not long ago he wrote in the impactful British Medical Journal that it’s time to bust the myth that saturated fat has anything to do with heart disease. This placed him on the front pages of papers all over the world, but now a lot of people realize that he was right.

Malhotra has not slowed down after this. He is often on TV, expecially in his home country of England and it’s not hard to understand why when you meet him.

The Interview

I managed to get an interview with Dr. Malhotra in South Africa and above you can see a short section. He explains that the common idea about physical activitity as a cure for obesity is something we need to forget – because it’s not true.

In the full 22 minute interview ha talks more about what we should focus on instead of calories, what food can lower risk of heart disease more than statin drugs… and how he lost weight eating 1,000 calories extra of a certain kind of food.
