The Food Revolution – Finally in English!

The Food Revolution

When will it be available in English? I’ve lost track of how many people have asked me about this book.

Almost four years ago my book “The Food rEvolution” was published in Sweden and instantly became a #1 bestseller, staying on top of the charts for quite some time. It ended up selling over 80,000 copies just in Sweden (huge for a small country) and being translated into eight languages.

Finally it’s possible to get it in English as well. If you can stand the total massacre of the title and a few spelling mistakes* (including a prominent error in the first paragraph!) this is a book I’m really proud of. It’s a gem that these publishers handled without much love… or taste. But hey, at least now it’s possible to get it in English too.

This is the story about how the entire world fell for the mistaken fear of fat – and the ongoing disaster it started. It’s also the story of all the people who are waking up and regaining their health and leanness by eating real food again. A story about our Food Revolution.

You can get it on Amazon and if you’re quick you can have a copy before Christmas. Perhaps you deserve it as a gift to yourself?

I’d love to hear what you think about the book. Feel free to leave a comment!

Holiday Cookies

My three-year-old managed to make these creations with just minimal help from her mother. Then dad brought out the camera.

An almost sugar-free recipe: almond flour, shredded coconut, eggs, butter, saffron, almonds… and a next-to-homeopathic amount of honey (1 tablespoon in a batch of 27 cookies)… from Birgitta Höglund in the holiday post from the other day.

A good option for those who want the occasional cookie without all the bad carbs. Continue Reading →

Dinner at Diet Doctor’s

middag-800x490

We had famous guests here on Friday. Two of the founders of Sweden’s LCHF magazine stopped by for dinner – Margareta Lundström and Bosse Zackrisson. In addition, Monique Forslund (holding my daughter Alva in the picture) came. A couple of significant  others (Mats and Mattias) and a few children came along too.

We made a big splash with a three-course meal. Here’s the menu with pictures. Continue Reading →

Try to Get It Right Next Time

The world’s largest meeting on diabetes research is over, but next year it will be in Stockholm, Sweden – almost my home town. I’ll be there and my suggestion to the organizers is simple. Try to get it right next time.

At least, do have the courage to discuss all the research showing that today’s lifestyle advice isn’t working for people with diabetes, but instead unfortunately makes people sicker. To ignore this fact is unreasonable and unethical when 5 million people die from their diabetes every year.

Where’s All the Research on Lifestyle and Diet?

Professor Nyström and Dr Tengblad

What’s wrong with the world’s largest meeting on diabetes research? Nobody talks officially about the real problem. A problem that has been demonstrated in two gigantic studies in recent years. Studies nobody has the courage to talk about.

The market for diabetes research and diabetes medications will only increase as long as the silence continues. More and more people will get sick unnecessarily.

At the meeting, I got the chance to talk quite a bit with Professor Fredrik Nyström and Dr Anders Tengblad. They both have, just like I do, a keen interest in the importance of lifestyle for diabetics.

Official discussions about this were almost entirely absent from the conference. Despite over 1300 presented scientific articles and discussions, there were not very many about eating significantly less of what diabetics don’t tolerate (carbohydrates). How many do you think? The correct answer is… zero!

It’s in the context of this that the junk-food lunches are not only ironic, but also a symbol of the total silence about the real problem. Continue Reading →

What’s Inside the Bags?

What kind of lunch is offered at the world’s biggest scientific meeting about diabetes research? This one.

These are the lunch bags all participants at the meeting are offered. The question is what’s inside the bags. What do you think?

A Secret Conference

Unfortunately, I can’t offer you any pictures from the gigantic exhibition hall in Vienna, where all the pharmaceutical companies are. It is “strictly forbidden” to take pictures…

At the Diabetes Meeting in Vienna

IMG_1956-800x419

Here’s one of the 6 lecture halls, in session simultaneously, at the diabetes conference in Vienna…it’s big! Perhaps a little bigger than when I attended the same EASD meeting in Stockholm four years ago.

I spent the first day listening to selected lectures, walking through the exhibitions of vendors (photography prohibited) and a long and nice lunch conversation with Dr Anders Tengblad. This at a lunch restaurant where they served fine food at a nice price. About 0.5 percent of the participants were there. Tomorrow, I’ll have a closer look at the lunch bags that are handed out to all participants.

More reports coming up when I get time to sort impressions a bit more.
