Dr. Terry Wahls got her MS under control using a total diet change, to a micronutrient-rich Paleo diet. Obviously it does not necessarily work for everyone – there are no scientific studies yet – but it’s an intriguing possibility.

On the member site – free trial one month – we now have three videos with Dr. Wahls, including a talk she gave at the Paleo f(x) conference earlier this year. We also have two videos from an interview I made with her, first about her personal story and then about the protocol she uses in treating patients with autoimmune disorders, and the results she sees.

Famous People on the Paleo Diet

Paleopathology and the Origins of Low Carb

Dr. Michael Eades - Paleopathology

What does the history of early humans and Egyptian mummies have to do with the origins of the low-carb diet? This is all woven together into an entertaining story by one of the true low-carb pioneers, Dr. Michael Eades.

Dr. Eades’ talk at the LCHF convention earlier this year was one of the most talked about. Especially his interest in Egyptian mummies and the finding of obesity and severe heart disease in this population eating… well, just about what any conventional nutritionist have been recommending for decades: plenty of carbs (mostly wheat), very little sugar, very little fat.

You can buy access to the entire LCHF convention for $49 dollars, or you can see the talk on our member pages with much else (free trial one month, then $9 per month, cancel at any time).

What Causes Stomach Problems – Gluten or Carbs?

Many people believe themselves to be gluten intolerant, without a positive result on tests (so called nonceliac gluten sensitivity). These people may instead react to carbohydrates (fructans and galactans) in wheat.

Nutrition Journal: The relation between celiac disease, nonceliac gluten sensitivity and irritable bowel syndrome

Which prompted this tweet from Dr. Ted Naiman:

Many people experience relief from symptoms like bloating and stomach pain on an LCHF diet. This not only removes the gluten but also the offending carbs.


My Big Fat Diet

Obesity and type 2 diabetes are rampant epidemics among the aboriginal communities of Canada. And it all started as they began eating a modern Western diet, full of refined carbohydrates.

This disaster is usually blamed on sedentary lifestyles and “eating too much”. An energy imbalance, as Coca Cola’s staff of propagandists would have you believe.

However, what would happen if an entire town of First Nation people went back to eating the way they used to? A high-fat low-carb diet based on real food? With no exercise or calorie counting program whatsoever?

This is what the Canadian doctor Jay Wortman and a documentary team decided to find out, in the delightful and enlightening movie My Big Fat Diet.

Guess what happened…

Full Movie

Check out the trailer above. The full movie – one of my all-time low-carb favorites – is available on the Diet Doctor membership site (free trial one month) with many other movies, video courses, presentations, interviews, etc.

The Acid-Alkaline Myth

If you eat meat, will your blood become acidic, leading to osteoporosis and cancer? This is what some people still believe.

However, as humans have been eating meat since about forever, it would be pretty weird if our bodies couldn’t handle it without breaking down!

The big Paleo star Chris Kresser gave a talk on the science behind the Acid-Alkaline theories at the recent Paleo f(x) conference. I did a brief video interview with him about it and you can see all of it above.

American Low-Carb President Coming Up?


Nobody knows who’ll win the American presidential election in November 2016. But the chances are excellent for a low-carb President.

Both front-runners, the Republican Jeb Bush and Democrat Hillary Clinton, are said to be on low-carb diets to get fit for the election.

Bush is losing weight just fine, but why is he hungry? The most likely cause is he’s not eating enough fat to feel satisfied, on his low-carb Paleo diet plan.

Going LCHF could help with that and make the diet more sustainable for life. If Jeb Bush wants to speed up the weight loss I’d recommend adding some intermittent fasting, instead of suffering the relentless hunger associated with a low-fat version of low-carb.

Weight loss without hunger is great for maintaining your self discipline and willpower for other important projects. The last thing the world needs is a hungry and grumpy President of the United States.


Smart people everywhere are choosing low-carb diets to shape up:
