I recently got an e-mail from Tania Palagas, Australia about what happened when she switched from being a sugar junkie to eating an LCHF diet. Continue Reading →
A new exciting Swedish study provides us with strong clues on how a person with diabetes should eat (and how to eat to maximize fat burning). It’s the first study to examine in detail how various blood markers change throughout the day depending on what a diabetic person eats.
The study examined the effects of three different diets in 19 subjects with diabetes type 2. They consumed breakfast and lunch under supervision in a diabetes ward. The caloric intake in the three diets examined was the same, but the diets differed in the following manner:
- A conventional low-fat diet (45-56% carbs)
- A Mediterranean diet with coffee only for breakfast (= similar to 16:8 intermittent fasting) and a big lunch (32-35% carbs)
- A moderate low-carbohydrate diet (16-24% carbs)
All participants tested all three diets, one diet each day in randomized order.
The effects on blood sugar levels throughout the day are shown in this chart: Continue Reading →
When seeking to improve health or weight, should we do this in small steps or radical changes? Should we, for example, go on a strict LCHF diet or start out by just making a minor dietary change?
My tip is to start small with one big change.
For example, I advise patients who want to lose weight or improve their diabetes to start out by going on a strict LCHF diet. This in order to get an immediate strong positive effect on weight, blood sugar, digestive issues, sugar cravings etc. This positive effect will then strengthen the will to continue, and to make the change a habit.
However, I do NOT recommend making several changes at the same time. For example, you can start exercising later on, when the new diet has become a habit that is self-propelled.
Attempting to change your diet and exercise habits at the same time as you quit smoking and are being nicer to your in-laws is a recipe for failure. It’s unlikely that anyone has this amount of self-discipline. Therefore, it’s usually smarter to take one change at a time. Make it a habit, which takes at least three weeks. Then you can tackle the next issue.
What works best for you? Small steps or radical changes?
Do you want to feel better, get smarter and look better? Then follow this simple guide:
Personally I’ve not slept as much as I should in the last few weeks. I scored just 54% at the evaluation form (after the five questions) so there’s plenty of room for improvements.
How did you do?

Science journalist Ann Fernholm wrote an excellent opinion piece in one of Sweden’s major newspapers, Aftonbladet.
Any evaluation of LCHF for diabetes will no doubt show the same thing as SBU (The Swedish Council on Technology Assessment) concluded in their review in 2010: a better outcome for blood sugar and weight than with today’s dietary advice. It’s what previous studies have shown, it’s what all logic tells us and it’s what I see in my patients daily.
That diabetics are still given the advice to eat a lot of carbs is a disgrace for the healthcare system.
Here’s the full article by Ann Fernholm, translated to English:

What we’re currently doing is not working, so it’s high time to rethink it.
But when Emil – with a doctor’s note – asked for such school lunches in order to avoid migraines and maintain his weight, the answer was: no. The school physician apparently suggested that he take drugs for his migraines instead.
Dagbladet: School refuses Emil special diet (Google translated from Swedish)
The school nurse said she didn’t dare to take responsibility for what could happen if Emil were allowed to eat himself lean and healthy, without needing any medications. Because that sounds… dangerous.
