4.8 out of 5 stars5 star82%4 star10%3 star6%2 star0%1 star0%29 ratings1,025 viewsIs high cholesterol dangerous on a low-carb diet? For some people, the “bad” LDL cholesterol goes up, while other aspects improve (like the “good” HDL cholesterol). So, both good and bad changes at the same time.

What does that mean? How should situations like that be handled?

Here’s the start of my interview with the fantastic Dr. Sarah Hallberg, from the recent Low Carb Vail conference.

Using Ketone Breath Analysers

Using Ketone Breath Analysers – Michel Lundell and Alison Gannett4.3 out of 5 stars5 star66%4 star20%3 star0%2 star4%1 star8%24 ratings2420:51


Michel Lundell managed to get his epilepsy under control using a ketogenic diet (this is now an accepted and proven treatment).

To make it easier to track his ketone levels – and being an engineer – he then developed the first ketone breath analyser, called the Ketonix.

In this short talk from Low Carb Vail he tells his story, and describes different ways of tracking ketone levels in the body.

After that Alison Gannet talks about being diagnosed with a massive malignant brain tumor in 2013. She had surgery to remove it and has then used a ketogenic diet to hopefully reduce the risk of relapse – so far so good. Here she talks about her journey, including tips and tricks for how to stay in optimal ketosis.

Does Everyone With Heart Disease Have Diabetes?

Framingham and the Muddy Waters – Dr. Jeffry Gerber4.9 out of 5 stars5 star95%4 star0%3 star5%2 star0%1 star0%20 ratings2033:15


How do you know if you’re at risk for heart disease or not? Traditional cholesterol panels are not usually very helpful – but they should not be ignored completely either.

What may matter most of all is something discovered by the now retired 94-year-old doctor Joseph R. Kraft. He discovered a very strong link between heart disease and diabetes type 2… so strong that he said this:

Those with cardiovascular disease not identified with diabetes… are simply undiagnosed.

It’s quite an interesting story, and at the recent Low Carb Vail conference Dr. Jeffry Gerber told it effectively. The presentation, shot with 4 cameras and with the slides edited in, and including captions, is now available on the member site.

The Cause of Obesity

The Etiology of Obesity – Dr. Jason Fung4.7 out of 5 stars5 star87%4 star6%3 star0%2 star3%1 star3%33 ratings3338:45


What is the real cause of obesity?

It surely is not excess calories – that’s just a description of how people gain weight. It does not explain why, so it’s not helpful.

To be able to lose weight it’s hugely helpful to understand what really caused it, so that the cause can be removed.

Here’s another great presentation by the fantastic Dr. Jason Fung, from the recent Low Carb Vail conference.
