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. Dr. Fung gets into the REAL cause in this presentation.

Should Weight-Loss Surgery be the Standard Treatment for Type 2 Diabetes?


Experts are calling for weight-loss surgery to be routinely offered to many people with type 2 diabetes:

Diabetes UK: International Experts Say Weight Loss Surgery Should Treat Type 2 Diabetes

The surgery often resolves the type 2 diabetes, at least in the short term. But it’s a surgery with a relatively high risk of complications, and it’s not fully reversible. Some people bitterly regret having it.

More fundamentally, obesity and type 2 diabetes are not caused by a disease in the stomach. There’s no disease where the surgeon is operating. We’re operating on healthy organs.

There’s something quite disturbing about routinely removing or surgically altering healthy bodily organs.

Fortunately it’s possible to get the effect of surgery without a surgeon, without the side effects, and for free.

Baby Boomers Will Become Sicker Seniors Than Earlier Generations


This is simply not OK:

The next generation of senior citizens will be sicker and costlier to the health care system over the next 14 years than previous generations, according to a new report from the United Health Foundation. We’re talking about you, baby boomers.

Why The First Law of Thermodynamics is Utterly Irrelevant

There are many adherents to the Calories In/ Calories Out (CICO) theory that constantly bleat about “It all comes down to the First Law of Thermodynamics”. The First Law of Thermodynamics refers to a law of physics where energy cannot be created or destroyed in a closed system and is ALWAYS true.

However, in the complex world of human physiology, it is true but completely irrelevant. What the CICO people think it means is that if you reduce calories in, you will lose weight. Of course, it means nothing of the sort.

So, let’s see why. Continue Reading →


“Fantastic…. I Love It.”


So far this year more than 32,000 people have signed up for FREE guidance, meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, troubleshooting tips, etc., via the two-week low-carb challenge.

What could happen if you were to take it? Here’s feedback from this week:


Dear Dr. Andreas,

These first two weeks have been an experience. First, I have learned so much and if I had only known 40 years ago what I am learning now, I could have prevented so many problems. THANK YOU so much.

I am a 70 year old female, I had been hypoglycemic in my younger days, I developed hypothyroid , gained over 100 lbs. (45 kg). I was placed on thyroid medication, but it didn’t seem to have much effect.

So now I find my self 150 lbs. (68 kg) over weight, on blood pressure med., diabetes med. metformin, congestive heart failure , and a pacemaker that I am totally dependent on. I also have osteoporosis as well as arthritis . I am 5’3″ weigh 270 lbs. (122 kg).

Then my dear friend told me about your website! Words can not express my gratitude, as I read and researched I was so impressed, and knew there that this was different.

All my life I had been dieting cutting off all fat, lowering calories, etc., and when I was put on metformin I started gaining weight and was hungry all the time.

I took the 2 week challenge: WONDERFUL – I have lost 14 lbs. (6 kg), am now at 256 lbs. (116 kg). I have lost over 2 inches (6 cm) from my waist. I haven’t been hungry at all. Yes I had days that I felt blah and days I felt good, some days I felt very energetic, but my body just wouldn’t hold up with the new energy I had.

I have stopped metformin, and my blood pressure meds. My old blood pressure was anywhere from 160 /85 to 200/95 and now it is running from 126/60 to 130/65. My morning sugar is still a little high but went from 150 fasting doen to 135 fasting but 2 hours after I eat it is 112 to 99.

Sorry to write a book, but I want you to know this is not a diet for me ….. it is a NEW way of life. Thank You again to You and your staff, keep up the wonderful work you are doing.
