This might be the best low-carb movie ever. It’s just been released and you can watch it online:
Back in August 2013 the readers of this blog (and its Swedish cousin) helped kickstart production of Carb-Loaded.
The creators, Lathe Poland and Eric Carlsen, have since done a terrific job of interviewing almost everyone in the low-carb community – like professor Tim Noakes, Gary Taubes et al (and me) – plus many other experts in food and nutrition, like Drs. David Katz, Marion Nestle and Yoni Freedhoff.
They’ve done loads of interviews, but that’s not what’s most impressive about this movie. What’s most impressive is how funny it is. I’ve basically heard all the information covered before, but I still found myself sitting with a silly grin on my face through much of the movie.
There’s some pretty impressive animation work lightening up the film too. But my favorite is the obnoxious doctor who sort of represents the conventional “wisdom” of our time. Reportedly the character was inspired by “dr Spaceman” in the TV series 30 Rock – if you’ve seen him you know what to expect.
Here’s a sneak peek of Carb-Loaded:
Did you like that? Check out the whole movie online here:
If you’d rather order a physical DVD or Blu-Ray disc, or if you want to check out other Carb-Loaded merchandise (like T-shirts) have a look at their online store. I you’d like, you can use the coupon code “DIETDOCTOR” for a 25% discount.
What do you think about the movie?
Note: I have no financial interests in the video streaming or the merchandise above.
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:
Study after study shows a more effective weight loss on a low-carb diet. And if you reduce abdominal fat, you’re also reducing the amount of liver fat. The disease fatty liver is strongly associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Not surprisingly, yet another study* shows that a low-carb diet is a good treatment for fatty liver. In only six days on a low-carb diet, the reduction in the amount of liver fat was about the same as it was for seven months (!) on a calorie-restricted diet. Furthermore, the volume of the liver decreased quickly, probably because of less glycogen and fluids (decreased swelling).
How do you most effectively decrease the amount of fat in your liver? In the same way that you melt fat off your abdomen. Less sugar and starch in your diet. Continue Reading →
Sugar or fat, which is worse? That’s the question in the BBC documentary “Sugar vs. Fat” that aired the other night. And it’s been a long time since I got so many e-mails asking me for comments!
It’s an interesting setup. Two identical twin brothers – both of them doctors – go on a diet for a month. One on an extreme low fat diet, one on an extreme low carb diet (not even vegetables are allowed!). Here’s some background information:
Unfortunately they end up mostly “confirming” their preconceived ideas. Ready? Here comes the spoilers:
The documentary Cereal Killers has now been released on internet. It follows Donal O’Neill, who tries to avoid walking in his father’s footsteps (with heart disease) by eating a high-fat diet.
The hour-long movie follows his experiences during four weeks of high-fat dieting, including careful medical examinations. Don’t miss the surprised lab technician 48 minutes into the movie. Donal’s basic metabolic rate increased according to the examinations, which the technician says he’s never seen before and can’t figure out why it happened. Perhaps he needs to read up a little.
Well worth watching for 5 dollars:
Here’s a fun survey on which the best LCHF foods are. It only takes a minute to complete and for each answer you can see what others have replied:
Please note that certain foods don’t fit an LCHF diet at all, so then you’ll have to pick “the least bad”.
Do you want advice on LCHF (low carb high fat) in your first language? Or do you want to send it to a friend who doesn’t speak English?
Check out this very low-carb positive article in a magazine for dietitians:
There are some smart dietitians out there! Quite a few have realized that low-carb often is the way to go for their patients. And a few are starting to tell others.
You can read the entire magazine online. But watch out for the fraudulent Dreamfields’ Pasta ad on page 7. Someone should sue these guys before they end up killing (more?) people with their fake low-carb pasta. Nasty stuff.
It wasn’t even close. After a slow start the kickstarter for the LCHF movie Carb-Loaded finished very strongly. With 55 hours to go it’s at 109 percent. Congratulations!
You can still support the movie and get to see it before anyone else. That way you’ll give the filmmakers an extra bonus.
