“I Was Wrong, We Should Be Feasting on Fat”

More and more people (and doctors!) realize that the fear of fat was a mistake:

The World’s Most Persistent Fad Diet

Fad diet?

Fad diet?

Obesity is caused by flour-rich and starchy foods, such as bread, cookies and macaroni. This is not a new idea, and it certainly wasn’t I who said it first. The page above is from the book “The Physiology of Taste”, by a famous French food guru.

Ignorant people like to dismiss the ideas as a “fad diet”, but then this is an extremely long-lasting fad, as the book was published in 1825.

Why does a reduction of sugar and starch – variants of a low-carbohydrate diet – recur in thousands of different forms over hundreds of years? Simple.

Most people lose excess weight without hunger on a low-carbohydrate diet. It just works.

It’s not about a fad. It’s because it works. Continue Reading →

TIME: Eat Butter. Scientists Labeled Fat the Enemy. Why They Were Wrong.

TIME-600x800

Isn’t it pretty, the cover of the latest issue of TIME?

The paradigm shift continues and the outdated fear of fat is on its way out faster and faster.

You’d wish that some old-school fat phobics subscribed to the magazine. Unfortunately, I think this is hoping for too much, so I just emailed the cover to some of them.

Some people will still spread low-fat margarine on their bread as long as they live, as an old habit. But most people will soon realize that not only does it taste bad, but it’s also completely unnecessary.

Consider passing this on to your friends! Continue Reading →

What Happens If You Boil Coke?

What happens if you boil Coke?

Obviously, the sugar will be left on the bottom of the pot. But do you have any idea of how disgusting it looks? This charming Russian shows you. In just a few days his video has had more than 4 million views on YouTube.

Number of Weight-Loss Surgeries Continues to Decline in Sweden!

midja

The trend of an increasing number of weight-loss surgeries in Sweden (where I live) has now definitely been broken. For the second year in a row, fewer and fewer people have undergone this type of surgery.

Those responsible for weight-loss surgeries want to make the claim that the decline in weight-loss surgeries is because other, more urgent, types of surgery are given higher priority. But perhaps the real reason is different?

Perhaps more and more people are beginning to question the health benefits of such mass and indiscriminate surgery. There is no disease where the surgeons operate. Healthy organs are cut out. Healthy stomachs and healthy intestines are surgically removed with disconcerting routine.

Solutions this extreme can’t be necessary for more than a small minority. There must be more natural solutions for most people.

Weight-loss surgery is the ultimate proof of how the health-care system has failed miserably to deal with the obesity problem – a panic button. It’s not a long-term solution and perhaps more and more are starting to understand this. If this is the case the decrease is good news! Continue Reading →

Can you cure your epilepsy without medication? Yes, this seems possible for many. At least you can keep the disease in remission long term with a change in lifestyle – without the need for strong drugs or their side effects.

The Movie the Junk Food Industry Fears

1980111_278963888938594_859208201394203575_o1-438x650

Here’s the movie that the junk food industry fears.

This new American documentary about obesity – FED UP – could stir up the debate when it premiers in four weeks. It’s produced and narrated by Katie Couric, one of the best known American news anchors.

The movie seems to hit home when it comes to the causes of obesity. This by interviewing people who really know their stuff, including several of my heroes: Dr. Robert Lustig, Gary Taubes, Michael Pollan, Dr. David Ludwig and Dr. Mark Hyman. Bill Clinton is in it as well.

Watch the trailer – it’s excellent. Things are on a roll!

A Calorie Is Not a Calorie – Not Even Close

kalorier-537x650

A calorie is not a calorie. Some calories may, for example, make you burn 300 more calories per day (corresponding to 30 minutes of running).

The figure above shows that a strict low-carbohydrate diet on average resulted in burning 300 calories more, compared to a diet much higher in carbohydrates. More details about the study here.

Recommended reading, especially for those who still believe Coca Cola’s favorite argument: There’s no bad food, only bad character.

The truth is that an exaggerated intake of sugary drinks may force you to run an extra 30 minutes a day to maintain your weight. If you don’t get hungrier from all the sugar and eat more (which many do), in which case you could need an extra hour of running – per day – to maintain your weight.

Exercise is great, but for maintaining weight it’s easier to avoid sugar and junk food. Continue Reading →
