Sky News: “Eat More Fat – and Stop Counting Calories”

Here’s a fun report from yesterday. Sam Feltham from the Public Health Collaboration faces off against a government obesity advisor and professor on the topic of low-carb diets.

Unfortunately the professor seems completely clueless, emphasizing that low-carb studies only test Mediterranean diets and never with unlimited amounts of saturated fats. Of course she’s completely wrong. There are many such studies, here’s one of the more well-known examples.

It’s not too strange that the UK official guidelines are so bad, when the government’s own obesity adviser talk with absolute certainty about a fundamental topic, while being absolutely wrong.

New US Nutrition Labels Now Include Added Sugars – Here’s What’s Wrong With Them

The US just had a major redesign of the nutrition labels on food packages. There is some good news – like the new line about “added sugars”. But in some ways this change is a step backwards.

Check out the new and the old versions here:


Look at that one big massive number on the new labels – calories. These new nutrition labels show our misplaced obsession with calorie quantities, rather than food quality. A total misfire if you ask me.

The line about added sugars is good, but what about the “% Daily value” number? It’s said to represent how much a nutrient contribute to a daily diet.

That everyone should eat the same amounts of everything is ludicrous by itself. But what about added sugars? Why do they in effect recommend 50 grams of added sugars every day?

There’s ZERO need for added sugars in the diet. Any added sugar is bad.

Dr. Peter Brukner is the team physician for the Australian Cricket Team. He was overweight and pre-diabetic, but a few years ago he got interested in low carb after listening to professor Tim Noakes.

The problem? He’d been a advocate of “carb loading” and a high-carb diet for ages. So what should he believe in now?
