That Sugar Film Now Available on DVD and Streaming

That Sugar Film is a great movie. It’s like an upgraded and more colorful version of Super Size Me, with a focus on the hidden sugar that’s in most food products in the grocery stores.

I found the movie both highly entertaining and inspiring. Now it’s finally available on DVD and streaming.

That Sugar Film

This movie became the #1 grossing documentary of all time in the filmmakers homeland Australia, where it premiered earlier this year. It was recently released in the US and now you can even watch it from home.

Huevos Rancheros

Photo: Primal Palate

Are you up to a spicier breakfast? Here’s something tasty from Primal Palate.

It’s only moderately low in carbs (the bell pepper, tomato and onion add up) so if you’re very carb sensitive – or if you want the maximum effect on low carb – it’s not for every day.

Recipe

A popular breakfast throughout the Americas, huevos rancheros is typically served atop a corn or flour tortilla and with refried beans. We make it paleo by ditching those parts, and just adding more of the good stuff!

Ingredients, 1 serving

Huevos nutri
1 jalapeño, minced
½ orange bell pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
1 teaspoon parsley, chopped
½ onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 whole pastured eggs
1 vine-ripened tomato, diced
½ avocado
cilantro

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Ready In: 30 minutes

Do you want a great bacon cheeseburger, without the carbs? Here’s a fantastic option from Carolyn Ketchum at All Day I Dream About Food.

baconlettuceTake your favourite fast food meal and make it low carb and healthy simply by wrapping it in lettuce. I used my favorite cheeseburger and turned it into a quick, easy low carb dinner recipe.

Lettuce wraps are quickly becoming a staple in my house, and with good reason. They are healthy, easy to make and you can fill them with practically anything. They are always well received by the kids, as they delight in anything that they can eat with their hands.

Ingredients, 4 servings, about 12 lettuce wraps

12 slices bacon
4 ounces (100 g) mushrooms, sliced
1½ lbs (680 g) ground beef
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
1 cup (240 ml) shredded Cheddar cheese
1 small head iceberg lettuce, leaves separated and washed
Additional salt and pepper to taste

The First Low-Carb Scientific Revolution [Free for a Limited Time Only]

Jay Wortman presentation

There’s a low-carb revolution going on today. More and more people now realise that low-carb diets simply work, and that they are safe.

However there was an earlier low-carb scientific revolution. The first one. It occurred a bit more than a decade ago but then it went away. People got scared again. Low carb was branded a dangerous fad diet – even though there has never been any evidence for that.

Why did this happen? Who made it happen? And how can we prevent that it happens again?

Here’s Dr. Jay Wortman’s presentation from the recent Low Carb Cruise:

The First Low-Carb Scientific Revolution [Free for a Limited Time Only]

My Big Fat Diet

Obesity and type 2 diabetes are rampant epidemics among the aboriginal communities of Canada. And it all started as they began eating a modern Western diet, full of refined carbohydrates.

This disaster is usually blamed on sedentary lifestyles and “eating too much”. An energy imbalance, as Coca Cola’s staff of propagandists would have you believe.

However, what would happen if an entire town of First Nation people went back to eating the way they used to? A high-fat low-carb diet based on real food? With no exercise or calorie counting program whatsoever?

This is what the Canadian doctor Jay Wortman and a documentary team decided to find out, in the delightful and enlightening movie My Big Fat Diet.

Guess what happened…

Full Movie

Check out the trailer above. The full movie – one of my all-time low-carb favorites – is available on the Diet Doctor membership site (free trial one month) with many other movies, video courses, presentations, interviews, etc.

“Butter Unlikely to Harm Health, but Margarine Could Be Deadly”

Butter

How’s this for a nice headline?

The Telegraph: “Butter Unlikely to Harm Health, but Margarine Could Be Deadly”

This is just one example from hundreds of headlines around the world in the last two days. They’re all based on a new review in The British Medical Journal, looking at all available observational data on the intake of saturated fat and trans fat and risk of disease.

The review finds no association between saturated fat and any bad health effects. On the other hand, industrial trans fat – as used to be find in large quantities in margarine – is associated with heart disease. No such association can be found to naturally occurring trans fat from real food.

This review basically finds the same thing as dozens of recent articles: There’s no evidence that eating butter is anything but perfectly fine for our health. Decades of scaremongering has more or less been based on pure speculation.
