Two Examples of a Worldwide Nutrition Revolution


4.8 out of 5 stars5 star86%4 star8%3 star2%2 star4%1 star0%50 ratings1,587 viewsWhile the Noakes trial continue in South Africa (follow on Twitter #NoakesTrial) it’s worth considering what the trial is about. It is, at the end, about the right of people to help their fellow human beings, in the best way they can.

Above you can watch a segment from Professor Noakes’ presentation at the LCHF Convention last year. Two people who have revolutionized their health with the help of Noakes’ advice tell their stories.

It can be argued that these are just anecdotes, that can be ignored, but they really are more than that. Because they are not supposed to happen at all, if conventional wisdom is correct. They are black swans. They – and thousands of people like them – signal that conventional wisdom when it comes to obesity and type 2 diabetes is wrong.

Watch the full presentation

In the full presentation Professor Noakes gives his full defense against his critics. It’s his explanation for how so many experts can all be wrong, and how he can be right.

There’s a simple answer – the bar for evidence has been set far too low, completely ignoring the classic Bradford-Hill criteria. The bar has been set so low in fact, that you can quite easily “prove” that any food causes anything.

Why We Get Fat

Why We Get Fat – Gary Taubes4.7 out of 5 stars5 star87%4 star2%3 star2%2 star2%1 star5%40 ratings401:12:26


Why do we get fat – and what can we do about it? Conventional wisdom tells us that it’s all about eating less and running more. The problem is that this seldom works well.

Science journalist Gary Taubes has spent more than a decade on finding a better answer. His book Good Calories, Bad Calories (2007) became very influential and changed many people’s view on this – including mine.

Here Taubes discusses his controversial theories and the criticism, during the LCHF conference 2015. Why do we get fat?

Were the Ancient Egyptians Healthy, While Basing Their Diet on Wheat?


4.2 out of 5 stars5 star55%4 star23%3 star11%2 star4%1 star4%43 ratings1,786 viewsIs it healthy to live on a diet full of “healthy” whole grains, while eating no sugar or modern processed foods?

Let’s look at a well-known people who did exactly that. Above is a short segment from a presentation by Dr. Michael Eades at last year’s LCHF Convention. The ancient Egyptians basically ate what most modern nutritionists would consider a perfect diet. So what happened?

Unfortunately, in autopsied mummies there are signs of severe heart disease and some people even had weight issues… perhaps it’s not so healthy to base your diet on wheat?

In the full presentation Dr. Eades also talks a lot about the origins of the low-carb diet. You can buy access to the entire LCHF convention for $49 dollars from the organizers. Or you can watch this talk on our member pages:

The Food Revolution 2015

The Food Revolution – Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt4.8 out of 5 stars5 star89%4 star7%3 star0%2 star2%1 star0%38 ratings3851:51

There’s a global food revolution going on. A paradigm shift in how we look at fat and sugar.

Natural fat used to be feared – a terrible mistake, it turned out. Now we’re increasingly viewing sugar as the big problem. While this is surely closer to the truth it’s still a very simplified version of reality.

tollHere’s my second presentation from the 2015 LCHF Conference in Cape Town. It starts with a truck driver getting arrested, for illegal smuggling of butter into a small European country. That, it turns out, can be a sign of big things to come. And it can help hundreds of millions of people to lose weight and improve their health.

The presentation is an updated version of the 2011 AHS talk which has about 600,000 views on YouTube.

Weight Control – The Calories vs. Insulin Theory

Weight Control – A Question of Calories or Insulin? – Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt4.5 out of 5 stars5 star72%4 star14%3 star9%2 star0%1 star3%55 ratings5536:26

What really matters for weight loss? Calories in and calories out, or is our body weight carefully regulated by hormones, like the fat-storing hormone insulin?

In this presentation from the 2015 LCHF Conference in Cape Town I describe why the second explanation – about hormones – makes much more sense. And why the first one – about calories – is a simplistic description that completely fails to adress the cause of obesity.

Paleopathology and the Origins of Low Carb

Dr. Michael Eades - Paleopathology

What does the history of early humans and Egyptian mummies have to do with the origins of the low-carb diet? This is all woven together into an entertaining story by one of the true low-carb pioneers, Dr. Michael Eades.

Dr. Eades’ talk at the LCHF convention earlier this year was one of the most talked about. Especially his interest in Egyptian mummies and the finding of obesity and severe heart disease in this population eating… well, just about what any conventional nutritionist have been recommending for decades: plenty of carbs (mostly wheat), very little sugar, very little fat.

Four of the Best Talks of the Low-Carb Cruise

naughton
childersJay-Wortman-presentationwestman


Did you miss the annual Low-Carb Cruise early this summer? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered – at least you’ll be able to see the top presentations from it. Out of 14 presentations on the cruise we have selected four of the best and posted them online (with two more to come).

  1. Most people found Tom Naughton‘s well-crafted talk Konvincing Kids that Kalorie Kounting is Kooky the most entertaining, and enlightening as well. Watch
  2. You can also listed to the psychiatrist Dr. Ann Childers on how our modern diet does not fit our ancient bodies, and how to un-sugar the brain. Watch
  3. Dr. Jay Wortman took the risk of being slightly conspiratorial, talking about how vested interests shape our view of “healthy whole grains” and other marketing slogans, behind the scenes. Watch
  4. Finally Dr. Eric Westman described how clinics could be set up to cure type 2 diabetes and obesity, not just manage them, while describing his own fascinating experience treating patients with strict low-carb diets. Watch

These presentations and many more (plus courses, interviews, expert Q&A, movies etc.) are available on the membership site.

Oh, and instead of paying around $2,000 to go on the cruise it’s only $9 a month (supporting an independent Diet Doctor site with no ads). It can even be free, with a trial membership. Tropical sun, however, is not included.

The Key to Obesity – and Weight Loss

Do you want to lose weight after the summer? Then you probably know that an LCHF diet is a good beginning. For many, a strict LCHF diet is all that is needed.

For others, LCHF doesn’t do the job well enough. If that includes you, you can check out the page with more tips for how to lose weight.

If you want new insights that will take you all the way to your dream weight I highly recommend this presentation by the brilliant and entertaining Dr. Jason Fung, from the LCHF convention in South Africa.

You can watch a short clip above. Why is there an epidemic of obesity in 6 months old babies? It’s hardly caused by babies exercising less these days! One probable reason is what happens to the baby in the uterus. This and other clues leads to fascinating conclusions with huge practical implications for deciding not only what to eat but also when, to lose weight.

The full presentation is available on our membership page (free trial one month) or you can buy access to all presentations of the LCHF summit for a one-time fee of $49 – all of which goes to the organisers and funds future conferences.

The Key to Obesity

After watching this presentation I thought further about not only what I eat, but also when I eat. The result? I lost an additional 5 lbs (2 kg) without effort, or hunger. My weight has now been stable at exactly the same as when I was 20 years old – 203 lbs (92 kg) to my 6’7″ (202 cm). My BMI is now exactly 22.5.

This additional small weight loss was nothing I needed or strived for, but it’s fascinating how simple it has been to consistently weigh exactly the same at age 43 as at 20.

An LCHF diet is all very well, but Dr. Fung points to an important point. Common obesity is not just caused by carbs, it’s caused by the fat-storing hormone insulin. Large amounts of carbohydrates is the main cause of elevated insulin, but there are several other important causes. When you eat is also very important.

The 2 Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Dr. Jason Fung

Why is the conventional treatment of Type 2 Diabetes an utter failure? Why do we consider it normal that everyone is getting sicker while on conventional treatment? Simple. It’s because we’re treating this common disease completely backwards.

Fortunately there is one doctor who can explain this complicated subject in a remarkably simple to understand and even entertaining way: the Canadian nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung. Here’s another treat for everyone who wants more of his piercing insights.

This presentation – The 2 Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes – was recorded earlier this year at the LCHF Convention in South Africa. There are two ways for you to see it online:

Two Options

  1. Sign up for the entire online convention – 30 presentations by the top LCHF experts in the world – for a one-time fee of $69 dollars or $49 dollars using this link. This online convention is highly recommended. Note that every cent goes to the organizers (we get none of it) and any surplus will help them fund future conferences.
  2. See the presentation on the Diet Doctor membership pages. Membership is free to try for a month (then $9 per month, cancel any time). It gives you instant access to video courses, interviews, presentations, Q&A with experts, movies, etc. Fees are used to fund Diet Doctor and keep the site 100% free of ads and corporate interests.
