Two Examples of a Worldwide Nutrition Revolution

4.8 out of 5 stars5 star87%4 star6%3 star2%2 star4%1 star0%48 ratings1,550 viewsWhile the Noakes trial continue in South Africa (follow on Twitter #NoakesTrial) it’s worth considering what the trial is about. It is, at the end, about the right of people to help their fellow human beings, in the best way they can.

Above you can watch a segment from Professor Noakes’ presentation at the LCHF Convention last year. Two people who have revolutionized their health with the help of Noakes’ advice tell their stories.

It can be argued that these are just anecdotes, that can be ignored, but they really are more than that. Because they are not supposed to happen at all, if conventional wisdom was correct. They are black swans. They – and thousands of people like them – signal that conventional wisdom when it comes to obesity and type 2 diabetes is wrong.

Watch the full presentation

In the full presentation Professor Noakes gives his full defense against his critics. It’s his explanation for how so many experts can all be wrong, and how he can be right.

There’s a simple answer – the bar for evidence has been set far too low, completely ignoring the classic Bradford-Hill criteria. The bar has been set so low in fact, that you can quite easily “prove” that any food causes anything.

You can buy access to the entire LCHF convention for $49 dollars from the organizers. Or you can watch this talk on our member pages:

“We are Both Shocked With the Results”

Here are some impressive results by Sarah Ann Crook and her husband, posted to our Facebook page:

Me and my husband read your blog and website and were inspired to actual find a way to eat differently and eat real food high in fat and flavour. I must say when we started the 2-week challenge we were both sceptical. I am very large with hypothyroidism and PCOS and have always struggled to lose weight. However once my husband starts to eat better he loses quickly but we are both shocked with the results.
I lost 12 lbs and my husband has lost a staggering 21 lbs. We are going to carry on and see where this takes us. Thank you for research that you have shared and I will keep you posted.

The Only Low-Carb Doctor in Saudi Arabia?

Do you have a hard time finding a doctor that knows about low carb? Try moving to Saudi Arabia. They have massive problems with obesity and diabetes, and last year perhaps only one doctor was using low carb: Dr. Riyad Q. Alghamdi.

Here’s my brief interview with Dr. Alghamdi from the LCHF convention last year. He’s been quite successful on low carb himself, losing 40 kilos (88 pounds) and getting rid of his acne, among other things. Now he’s doing a study on a low carb intervention for his patients.

Good luck Dr. Alghamdi! Saudi Arabia needs more bold and thinking people like you.

The story

My LCHF success story is a family success story brought on by an all too common family tragedy: a devastating chronic lifestyle disease in a loved one.

Losing Weight Without Hunger – How Christina Did It


Before and after

Here’s Christina B’s low-carb journey and what worked for weight loss without hunger – and what didn’t work. Now she wants to share what she’s learned, to the benefit of others who struggle like she did:

The Email

Hi Andreas,

Here’s my low-carb journey (2015):

Losing weight has been the biggest challenge of my life. Most of my weight-loss efforts would be sabotaged by pervasive feelings of hunger. Over the past year, I devoted a lot of time and resources to address this issue. I hope that this information will benefit others who struggle with pervasive hunger when losing weight.

“I Am 80 and I Am Angry”


Why would finding Diet Doctor cause 80-year-old Suzi to end up angry? Read her email to find out:

The Email

I am 80 and I am angry.

When I was growing up, almost everybody was slim. You only have to look at old photos and films to see that. If someone wanted to lose a pound or two, they cut out carbs for a while. When I was heavily pregnant, I gained too much weight, was advised to cut out carbs, lost the weight and went on to produce a healthy baby. Somewhere along the line I learned that fat metabolises fat. I remember a conversation with a colleague who told me he was substituting margarine for butter. I was adamant that butter was the best option as it was natural and people had been eating it for ages. When I used to come home late and hungry, I used to eat two boiled eggs with one slice of bread, lots of butter (and marmite). I distinctly remember changing that to one egg and two slices of bread, no butter. Although I thought I knew what to eat, I was frightened off by the nutrition advice. I was frightened because both my father and my brother died of coronary thrombosis. (They were both heavy smokers). My brother left three young children. Obviously I was frightened of suffering the same fate. For the next 50 years I had a constant struggle with weight.

At the beginning of November I discovered and LCHF. I can’t remember how, but I am so glad that I did. Continue Reading →
