Now you can watch a 3-minute trailer for the movie Carb-Loaded. It’s about the low-fat, sweet and floury causes of the obesity epidemic:
Note also that there are subtitles in English and a few other languages. To chose a language, click on “CC” in the lower, right corner.
One of the interviews contains an explanation that I think sounds odd – how the body releases cholesterol to repair injuries to arteries. That is a metaphor that I’m not quite buying.
That small injuries to arteries and inflammation are central to heart disease is, however, probably true. As mentioned in the video, the result is like an abrasion on the inside of the arteries, that never heals completely.
Many things may contribute to injuries and resulting inflammation in the arteries, for example high blood sugar, high blood pressure, toxic substances from smoking and rancid small dense LDL cholesterol particles (which is primarily a result of too many bad carbohydrates in your diet).

I received a fascinating story from Anthony in Australia about what happened when he ended up in the emergency room, where it was discovered that he had high blood pressure.

Many people felt the story resonated with them, and one of them is Hanna. Here’s her story about how she went from “fat, pill-popping and not enjoying life” – picture to the left – to leaner, healthier and happier. Just like Bella: Continue Reading →
Another happy ending about a dietary intervention as a treatment for epilepsy:
Do you have to settle for being sick and taking more and more medications if you get type 2 diabetes?
Yet another person, who didn’t settle for this is Torbjörn Kadebro. Here’s his story about the dietary change he made on his own – and what happened at his checkup with his diabetes nurse: Continue Reading →
Is medication the only alternative for epilepsy? No. A strict low-carb diet is an accepted and effective treatment for children with epilepsy, who cannot be treated in any other way.
But why only try a dietary change when nothing else works?
I got an email from Emma, 20, who suffered an epileptic seizure in her teenage years. Here’s her story about what happened when she chose a different alternative on her own: Continue Reading →
Do you deserve to treat yourself to bad health today?
A new review of high-quality scientific studies shows yet again that sugar isn’t only bad for weight. Sugar is NOT just empty calories.
Sugar also has pronounced negative effects on health markers, such as blood pressure and blood lipids.
I received an e-mail from a physician about this: Continue Reading →
