The First Low-Carb Scientific Revolution [Free for a Limited Time Only]

Jay Wortman presentation

There’s a low-carb revolution going on today. More and more people now realise that low-carb diets simply work, and that they are safe.

However there was an earlier low-carb scientific revolution. The first one. It occurred a bit more than a decade ago but then it went away. People got scared again. Low carb was branded a dangerous fad diet – even though there has never been any evidence for that.

Why did this happen? Who made it happen? And how can we prevent that it happens again?

Here’s Dr. Jay Wortman’s presentation from the recent Low Carb Cruise:

The First Low-Carb Scientific Revolution [Free for a Limited Time Only]

“Coca-Cola Caught Funding Scientists Who Deflect Blame for Obesity Away From Sugary Drinks”

A very bad joke

A very bad joke

Did you hear the story about obesity being caused by a simple energy imbalance and a lack of exercise? And that soft drinks do not cause obesity? Turns out that the few “scientists” who still say this are often on Coca Cola’s payroll.

Obesity is a hormonal disorder. Soft drinks raise insulin, our main fat-storing hormone. You cannot outrun a bad diet.

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.

Q&A: What Kind of Fasting Should I Do?

Ask Dr. Jason Fung

Do you want to lose weight or improve your diabetes using intermittent fasting? Are you unsure what kind of fasting to try?

My simplified suggestion would be to try “16:8” fasting first, but there are many options and different variants may suit different people best. So let’s see what a real expert suggests.

Dr. Jason Fung, the Canadian nephrologist, is a world-leading expert on intermittent fasting and LCHF, especially for treating people with type 2 diabetes.

Dr. Fung answers questions weekly on our membership site. The most interesting questions and answers so far are now available to everyone. Here’s a few selected questions and answers about what kind of fasting you may want to try.

Different Kinds of Fasting

Are there significant differences in benefits from 24-hour fasting vs. multi-day fasting vs. 16:8 fasting?

Dr. Jason Fung: The main difference, as you may suspect, is that shorter fasting periods are less effective and are usually done more frequently. So a 16:8 fast is often done daily, whereas a 24 hr fasting period is done 2-3 times per week. For more severe insulin resistance, I tend to prescribe longer fasting periods, whereas for maintenance I tend to prescribe shorter ones. Continue Reading →

Statin Nation II – What Really Causes Heart Disease?

What really causes heart disease? Are healthy people being turned into profitable patients by the statin industry?

High cholesterol is hardly a main cause of heart disease. The benefits of cholesterol-lowering medications (statins) for heart-healthy individuals has been exaggerated dramatically, and the risks of side effects have been silenced. This has made these drugs the most profitable ever for the pharmaceutical industry.

Statin Nation II

The movie Statin Nation examined a lot of this when it was released a few years ago. Recently the sequel was released – Statin Nation II. Watch the trailer above and you can watch the entire movie on the membership pages (free trial here).

Watch Statin Nation II

About the Movie

Statin Nation II goes into more detail on all the paradoxes and contradictions in the cholesterol hypothesis. And how the people in the pharmaceutical industry are allowed to collect the evidence that is later used to create official guidelines on who’ll need their drugs.

As an added bonus people who are partly funded by the pharmaceutical industry are allowed to sit on the expert committees that decide on the guidelines (using the industry’s evidence). Not surprisingly a lot of people end up being told they need the drugs, even healthy people. Incredibly naive, really.

The problem? These are powerful drugs with significant risk of side effects. Taking them without needing to is not just a waste of money – it actually does more harm then good.

The movie also examines what the real cause of heart disease might be. Continue Reading →

The Key to Obesity

Dr. Jason Fung

Earlier this week the world’s top LCHF conference came online. For the discounted prize $49 (usually $69) you get instant access to it, and you can also check out some short previews for free:

The World’s Top LCHF Conference is Finally Online!

We managed to get a special bonus for our members: one complete presentation per month. So which one should I choose first?

Personally I was most impressed with Dr. Fung’s talks, so here’s his first one. It’s about the key to obesity and type 2 diabetes: insulin resistance. How it develops and how you can reverse it. There’s some tremendously important information in there about the centrality of meal timing. To Dr. Fung an LCHF diet is just the beginning of the solution.

The presentation – among many other things – is available for members and as usual you can try membership for free for one month.

Warning Label on U.S. Soda Advertisements May Be Coming Up

varningstext-läsk

Proposed warning label

A soda tax was recently introduced in Berkeley, California. Now San Francisco may start requiring health warnings on advertisements for sugary drinks. A decision is expected soon.

In Mexico, the world’s most obese nation, a soda tax was enacted last year and recent statistics already show significantly reduced soda sales. The soda tax works.

This all happens despite massive opposition from the soda industry’s lobbyists and the sugar industry’s paid “scientists” (those who still claim that sugar is harmless, with sugar money in their pockets.)

Nothing is likely to impact the obesity epidemic more than employing all means to reduce soda consumption. Soda is probably a bigger risk to public health today than smoking. So if we can stomach legislation when it comes to cigarette sales we should welcome urgent regulation of the excesses of the soda industry.
