NYT: An Unconventional Cardiologist Promotes a High-Fat Diet

Malhotra

Dr. Aseem Malhotra is featured in the New York Times, explaining why he promotes LCHF, why lifestyle changes might be more powerful than drugs and talking about his newly released movie.

As part of a heart-healthy diet, I advise my cardiac patients to enjoy full-fat cheese, along with olive oil and vegetables. You should see the look on their faces when I tell them.

“The Big Fat Fix” Movie Review

Untitled-2

If you are interested in taking back control of your health – eat fat! That’s the message of ‘unconventional’ British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra, the great crusader against the sugar and processed ‘fake’ foods that are destroying the health of the world, but more importantly, your health.

bffHe has just released a fantastic new movie called The Big Fat Fix, which is available here for online streaming for only $4.99.

Aseem and Donal O’Neill, behind the terrific films ‘Cereal Killers’ and ‘Cereal Killers 2 – Run on Fat’ have documented their trip to the forgotten Italian village of Pioppi to learn the origins of the Mediterranean diet. This film goes past diet alone as they key to the Mediterranean diet and really explores all aspects of the lifestyle that make it such a healthy way to live. Continue Reading →

Huge Drop in Soda Consumption After Berkeley Soda Tax

soda tax

Does anybody still doubt that a soda tax would have a big impact on consumption?

If so, think again. Soda consumption has quickly plummeted by 26% in Berkeley – the city that recently implemented the first US soda tax. This while other cities close by have increased their consumption.

The difference is even greater in “sports drinks” (which really just are sugary drinks in disguise).

Los Angeles Times: Berkeley Sees a Big Drop in Soda Consumption After Penny-Per-Ounce ‘Soda Tax’

Mexico has also recently seen a big drop in soda consumption after they implemented a soda tax.

One study investigating statistical correlations, predicts that a national soda tax in the US might save $23.6 billion in healthcare costs. Of course this is just based on statistics and educated guesses, but it could very well be true.

US Dietary Guidelines Being Investigated – by Government Insiders

$1 million for government insiders to investigate the government's own policies?

$1 million for government insiders to investigate their own nutrition policies?

Late last year, the US Congress demanded a review of the low-fat Dietary Guidelines for Americans. This due to well-founded concerns that they are based on obsolete ideas, and that the guidelines have failed completely to prevent obesity and diabetes.

Unfortunately, it now seems like the review will be carried out by government insiders with very little interest in changing the status quo. The number of members of the proposed panel with alternative viewpoints on important topics? Zero.

Fortunately it’s still possible to make your voice heard:

ZERO Added Sugar to Children Below the Age of 2, Recommends the American Heart Association

Maybe giving sugar to your child isn't such a great idea

Not recommended

The new recommendations about sugar and kids from the American Heart Association is out. After reviewing the science they recommend ZERO added sugar to children below the age of two, for health reasons.

The AHA also recommends limiting intake to less than 25 grams a day (6 teaspoons) for older children. And a maximum of one sugar-sweetened beverage per week.

Of course, this is far less sugar than most kids today consume.

While the AHA still adhere to an outdated fear of natural fats, at least it’s good that they are getting very aware of the health dangers of added sugar.
