Swedes are eating more and more eggs over the summer. According to a press release from the Swedish Egg Board, the statistics show a 20-percent increase in a few years.

The average Swede is said to eat 38 eggs over the ten weeks after midsummer solstice. Which leads to the obvious question:

How many eggs will you have this summer?

Across the Pacific Ocean Without Sugar or Other Junk Carbohydrates

14-svyle-18256653b3d36caa057-800x450

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”.

USA Today: Couple test food and each other on row to Hawaii

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:

Before and after

Before and after

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 →

TIME: Eat Butter. Scientists Labeled Fat the Enemy. Why They Were Wrong.

TIME-600x800

Isn’t it pretty, the cover of the latest issue of TIME?

The paradigm shift continues and the outdated fear of fat is on its way out faster and faster.

You’d wish that some old-school fat phobics subscribed to the magazine. Unfortunately, I think this is hoping for too much, so I just emailed the cover to some of them.

Some people will still spread low-fat margarine on their bread as long as they live, as an old habit. But most people will soon realize that not only does it taste bad, but it’s also completely unnecessary.

Consider passing this on to your friends! Continue Reading →

Carb-Loaded – a New Movie About the Risks of Too Many Carbohydrates!

Have you ever carb-loaded? The answer is likely yes, whether it was planned or not.

Check out this new trailer for Carb-Loaded, a new documentary in the making, about the risks accompanying a diet with too many carbohydrates.

The trailer includes several of my idols, like Gary Taubes and Yoni Freedhoff. In addition I’m in it, which feels a bit odd!

The movie will be finished soon. You can watch more clips from the movie’s interviews on their website and sign up for updates about when you can watch the entire movie:

Perfect for weight gain

Soon there will be another fast-food chain that can spread the obesity epidemic in Sweden. American Dunkin’ Donuts – most famous for its addictive and sugar-laden donuts – is now on track to open 30 restaurants in Sweden:

A small, but tempting image

Do you deserve to treat yourself to bad health today?

A new review of high-quality scientific studies shows yet again that sugar isn’t only bad for weight. Sugar is NOT just empty calories.

Sugar also has pronounced negative effects on health markers, such as blood pressure and blood lipids.

How to Convince Your Child Not To Eat Candy

How do you convince your child not to eat candy? This may be the most effective way ever.

The latter way of expressing it is just as correct, and more concrete and relevant for a child. Brilliant. Perhaps I’ll use it just like that.

What do you think? Continue Reading →
