The Big Fat Surprise

Does butter, meat and cheese belong in a healthy diet? And if so, how come we’ve been told the opposite for decades?

Here’s my recent interview with NYT bestselling author Nina Teicholz. Her book “The Big Fat Surprise” was called one of the best books of last year by publications like The Economist and The Wall Street Journal.

It’s a fascinating story. You can watch the first six minutes of our interview above.

LCHF Breakfast by Fanny #4 – Sesame Crispbread

Sesamknacke1600 2What do you eat for breakfast on LCHF? The short answer is you don’t need breakfast. But in case you want one – and not bacon & eggs – here’s suggestion number four.

As before the creator is Fanny Lindkvist, who runs a popular Swedish blog and the Instagram account LessCarbs.

Sesame Crispbread

I love to sink my teeth into something crunchy now and then. As I suffer from IBS and don’t tolerate flaxseed this LCHF crispbread is a great alternative to flaxseed version. In addition, it also tastes better if you ask me (and many others), this is one of Lesscarbs most popular recipes.

Ingredients (makes about 30)

sesamecrisp

● 1¼ cup (300 ml) sesame seeds
● ½ cup (100 ml) sunflower seeds
● 2 oz. (60g) grated cheese
● 1 tablespoon psyllium-seed husk
● < ½ cup (100 ml) water
● 2 eggs
● ½–1 teaspoon salt (I think my taste bulbs have changed, I now use ¼ – MAX ½ teaspoon)

Watch the Movie That Exposes the Cholesterol Cover-Up

Is high cholesterol the main cause of heart disease? Are cholesterol-lowering drugs miracle drugs, nearly free of side-effects, that the majority of the adult population needs to take every day?

This movie exposes the exaggerations and the grossly misleading marketing of daily medications to people who don’t need them. That is, most people who take cholesterol-lowering drugs without having heart disease. That’s when the risk of bad side effects (that are silenced) usually outweighs the benefit.

There’s another problem: total focus on cholesterol is profitable for the pharmaceutical industry, but it sucks energy from all other effective lifestyle changes to prevent heart disease. Real health is not to be found in a bottle of pills.

Statin Nation

The movie Statin Nation does a good job of providing information about the cholesterol cover-up. We are now able to stream the movie online for our members (free trial available).

You can watch the trailer above. Watch the full movie here: Statin Nation (for members).

LCHF Breakfast by Fanny #2 – Salad Sandwiches

Sandwich800x906

What do you eat for breakfast on LCHF? This is one of the most common questions from beginners, but sometimes experienced LCHF eaters want new inspiration too.

Here’s the second breakfast idea from Fanny Lindkvist, who runs a popular Swedish blog and the Instagram account LessCarbs (now at 12k followers and growing quickly). Her recipes are deliciously simple and this is a good example.

Salad Sandwiches with Ideas for Toppings

It isn’t necessarily difficult to have sandwiches without bread! Choose a lettuce variety that is crisp and firm, preferably romaine or cosmopolitan lettuce. Rinse the lettuce thoroughly and use as a carrier for the toppings. In the picture I used the following:

Saladsandwichnutri
● 3 leafs cosmopolitan lettuce
● Butter
● Cheese slices
● Avocado
● Dried meat
● Tomato

Other great toppings are tuna salad and eggs.

The nutrient calculation is of course very approximate, depending on topping choices and amounts. Continue Reading →
