Using Ketone Breath Analysers

Using Ketone Breath Analysers – Michel Lundell and Alison Gannett4.4 out of 5 stars5 star72%4 star16%3 star0%2 star5%1 star5%18 ratings1820:51


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.

The Cause of Obesity

The Etiology of Obesity – Dr. Jason Fung4.7 out of 5 stars5 star86%4 star6%3 star0%2 star3%1 star3%30 ratings3038:45


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.

What’s Really Going on With Cholesterol and Heart Disease?

Practical Lipid Management – Dr. Cate Shanahan4.7 out of 5 stars5 star86%4 star2%3 star4%2 star4%1 star2%46 ratings4634:55


How should you think about cholesterol and heart disease? Is it really just about lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol by any means? As every animal in nature has plenty of LDL cholesterol in their blood that would pretty much mean that “all of nature is wrong”, says Dr. Cate Shanahan.

In this presentation from Low Carb Vail she discusses a more logical way to look at cholesterol and heart disease, plus how to think about it on a low-carb diet. She also shows off some pretty fancy 3D animations.
