“A Better Version of Me!”


4.3 out of 5 stars5 star50%4 star38%3 star7%2 star2%1 star0%102 ratings1,871 viewsHere’s the inspirational story of Lisa Colclasure. How she got into better physical and emotional shape in her 40s than in her 20s, using an LCHF diet (and weight lifting).

She also managed to get off her antidepressant medication. Incredibly her doctor recommended her to stay on it for life, even though the reason for her feeling down was that her husband had passed away – it should be very normal too feel down after that. Well, Colclasure did NOT need to be on drugs to feel good, it turned out.

Sad But True

This would be funny if it weren’t so true. We feel way too secure when taking potentially dangerous drugs. And yet we’re afraid of simple, safe and effective lifestyle interventions.

Someone might object that there’s no proof that a diet change can help in depression. True. But it’s also true that antidepressants have been proven not to work in mild or moderate depressions. So statistically you’re likely better off betting on the diet change.

The probable reason that antidepressants are still commonly used in this situation is the massive advertising and misleading information from Big Pharma. This includes GSK committing scientific fraud causing the death of children and recently paying a $2 BILLION fine for it.

Unfortunately, when it comes to promoting new blockbuster drugs, this appears to be par for the course. The settlements are huge, but the enormous profits are many times bigger. So Big Pharma keeps exaggerating the benefits and hiding the dangers of their drugs.

So what should we be most careful with: falsely marketed, experimental drugs or real food? Everyone ought to know the answer.

Here’s what happened in a year: Continue Reading →

Could You Get Depressed from Sugar, Grains and Margarine?

Do you get depressed from eating the wrong foods? A recent study from Harvard School of Public Health makes this claim:

As always, this is uncertain and preliminary science that doesn’t prove anything. It’s only statistical correlation from a questionnaire. The relatively small increase in risk may be due to almost anything.

A bad diet (including bread, sugar and margarine) might increase the risk of depression and other brain disorders, but we can’t prove this with a questionnaire-based study.

Can Vegetarian Diets Cause Mental Disorders?

Can vegetarian diets cause mental disorders, such as depression and anxiety? Some people believe so. And a new observational study shows that vegetarians do indeed have an elevated risk of such problems. Whether that’s really cause and effect is, as usual, impossible to know.

What do you think?
