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 2 Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Dr. Jason Fung

Why is the conventional treatment of Type 2 Diabetes an utter failure? Why do we consider it normal that everyone is getting sicker while on conventional treatment? Simple. It’s because we’re treating this common disease completely backwards.

Fortunately there is one doctor who can explain this complicated subject in a remarkably simple to understand and even entertaining way: the Canadian nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung. Here’s another treat for everyone who wants more of his piercing insights.

This presentation – The 2 Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes – was recorded earlier this year at the LCHF Convention in South Africa. There are two ways for you to see it online:

Two Options

  1. Sign up for the entire online convention – 30 presentations by the top LCHF experts in the world – for a one-time fee of $69 dollars or $49 dollars using this link. This online convention is highly recommended. Note that every cent goes to the organizers (we get none of it) and any surplus will help them fund future conferences.
  2. See the presentation on the Diet Doctor membership pages. Membership is free to try for a month (then $9 per month, cancel any time). It gives you instant access to video courses, interviews, presentations, Q&A with experts, movies, etc. Fees are used to fund Diet Doctor and keep the site 100% free of ads and corporate interests.

Watch instantly on member site: The 2 Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

PS

Don’t have time to see this great presentation or not inclined to use any of the two options requiring sign-up? Do you still want to know what the two big lies are? Here they are: Continue Reading →

How to Reverse Diabetes and Lose 93 Pounds Without Hunger

Before and after

Before and after

What an amazing transformation. Peter struggled for a long time with his weight – he had to give up every possible diet because of always feeling hungry. Instead he got type 2 diabetes, at the age of just 32. And the advice he got just made it worse.

Finally in desperation he searched for other options on google. He found this site and others. Here’s what happened:

The Email

Hello Andreas,

First of all I would like to thank you for all you are doing. The information you and others share were life saving for me.

My name is Peter Szombati and I live in Transylvania, Romania and this is my story. I was a normal-weight child and had normal weight until my early 20s’ (about 185 lbs, 85 kg). Then I started to work at a place were I had to sit a lot and started to ignore homemade food and opted for fast food and soft drinks.

From 185 lbs (85 kg) in my early 20s’, I went to 309 lbs (140 kg) at 25. It didn’t get any better even though I have tried every possible diet. I always lost some weight but put it all back on in the next months because I was always hungry. Continue Reading →

She decided to do something about her weight issues once and for all. She was skeptical about the LCHF diet (low-carb, high-fat) but having heard a lot about it she decided to try it for a month.

Here’s her story about what happened: Continue Reading →
