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.
A low-carb and high-fat diet (LCHF) has become extremely popular in Sweden in recent years. Lots of Swedes are using it to lose weight and gain health. But there’s still plenty of resistance. The old-fashioned fear of fat is not dead yet. And this week saw some of the biggest headlines and media frenzy in years!
It all started with an opinion piece by a few senior fat-fearing professors, in Sweden’s biggest newspaper, called “The popular fat diets are a threat to public health” (link to Google translation).
This exploded into massive headlines in every paper and became the main piece of news on TV (I was on a morning show briefly to discuss it).
The most bizarre thing is that the opinion piece suggests that there’s been an increase in risk of heart disease & stroke in Sweden – and they blame the popularity of LCHF. However, the risk of heart disease and stroke in Sweden is on the contrary going down, faster and faster, according to the latest statistics:
Another silly health scare
It’s absolutely bizarre how little evidence is needed to trash low-carb diets. Continue Reading →
In the last two days the kickstarter to finish the important LCHF movie Carb-Loaded has advanced from 25 to 50 percent! There are nine more days to go. If the kickstarter fails the funding will disappear and the movie may become severely delayed or – worst case scenario – never finished.
Do you think they’ll make it?
I want to see this movie. Carb-loaded – A culture dying to eat is about the biggest health disaster in modern history. And they’re interviewing a lot of interesting experts on diet and health – including people like Gary Taubes and professor Tim Noakes.
You can help finish the project and become one of the first to see it:
Here’s a nice read: How to treat obesity with calorically unrestricted diets. It’s written by the medical doctor, A.W. Pennington, who inspired Dr Robert Atkins to lose weight in a similar way. This paper is dated 1953, ten years before Atkins tested it and two decades before his book “Dr Atkins’ Diet Revolution” was published.
Dr Pennington’s plan is a moderate low-carb diet that still allows for a little bit of potatoes or fruit. Sixty years later it should still work fine for most people. There’s no need to voluntarily restrict calories and starve.
If this is a fad diet it’s weird that it keeps outperforming its competitors, decade after decade.
I have one major objection, I would not recommend restricting salt when on a low-carb diet. It has no benefits and increases the risk of side effects like dizziness and fatigue.
Are low-carb people close-minded, just like some vegan people seem to be? Are we all caught up in group thinking?
Here’s a great blog post on the subject:
I mostly agree with it, but I have a few minor objections: Continue Reading →
