The Greatest Gathering of Low-Carb Experts Ever?

What a gathering. The picture is from the night before the start of the LCHF conference in South Africa. Among many other low-carb experts you can see professor Tim Noakes, Dr Aseem Malhotra, Dr Eric Westman, Dr Jeffrey Gerber, Dr Michael Eades, Dr Mary Eades, Dr Jay Wortman and professor Stephen Phinney. And Zoë Harcombe who wrote the article about saturated fat that made headlines around the world last week. The next day Gary Taubes turned up as well.

Likely there has never been a greater gathering of LCHF experts in the same place before.

I’m happy to be here. You probably understand the lack of updates recently on the blog. I’ll be back soon with new energy and new insights.

Updated design

No – you’re not imagining it. This site looks a bit different today.

  • We’ve updated the design, especially on mobile devices. The site is now “responsive”, meaning that the text and pictures should be the right size no matter what screen size you use – from mobiles, through tablets to big screen computers.
  • We’ve also changed the font to a more modern looking sans serif font.

Please leave a comment if you encounter any bugs or things that do not look good yet. And of course: feel free to say what you think about the changes.

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?

The Food Revolution on Amazon.com (Europeans can get it quicker from Book Depository in the UK)

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

Holiday Cookies

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 →
