LCHF on Australia’s Biggest Science Show!


Things are happening! The other day an excellent TV show aired about the benefits of LCHF-like food. This on Australia’s biggest science show, Catalyst.

The show is not only about how LCHF may reduce appetite, produce weight loss without hunger or improve diabetes. It also goes into how this kind of food may help some top athletes to better performance.

Watch the episode for free online:

Across the Pacific Ocean Without Sugar or Other Junk Carbohydrates


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:

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.

How Athletes – and You – Can Get Faster, Better and Stronger

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 →
