I recently got an e-mail from Tania Palagas, Australia about what happened when she switched from being a sugar junkie to eating an LCHF diet. Continue Reading →
But when Emil – with a doctor’s note – asked for such school lunches in order to avoid migraines and maintain his weight, the answer was: no. The school physician apparently suggested that he take drugs for his migraines instead.
Dagbladet: School refuses Emil special diet (Google translated from Swedish)
The school nurse said she didn’t dare to take responsibility for what could happen if Emil were allowed to eat himself lean and healthy, without needing any medications. Because that sounds… dangerous.
What do you think?

Recently My Westerdahl reached a milestone and sent me a message:
Today I step on the scale and it shows me that my greatest milestone to date is reached! I’ve lost 165 lbs (75 kg) by adopting an LCHF diet! I was able to decline gastric bypass surgery by exchanging carbohydrates for generous amounts of fat! I haven’t suffered any allergy or asthma shocks since the day 3.5 years ago when I made the diet change! Please tell me, why would a body respond with health on a diet that will kill it? Doesn’t this violate the principles of evolution? Thank you, Diet Doctor, for your tireless work spreading knowledge for a healthier population!
Congratulations My! Continue Reading →
Here’s an update from an earlier LCHF success story:
The frequent reader here has no doubt heard Tommy Runesson’s impressive story before. But now it’s also in the Swedish newspaper Corren and we get to admire some new pictures of Tommy. Like the one above – it’s probably time for a new pair of pants.
Here’s the full article, translated into English.
A recent e-mail from a reader with an impressive success story:
I’ve dropped 10 sizes and 64 lbs (29 kg) since the beginning of the year. All this from LCHF. I’m strict with my diet and I’m feeling great. Previously I used to run half marathons, but an injury prevented me from running for many years, and then the pounds piled up on me…
I’m attaching before and after pictures. You are welcome to publish these as an inspiration for others.
Congratulations! Continue Reading →
Sam Feltham carried out an experiment a few months ago that caught a lot of attention. For three weeks he pigged out on low-carb LCHF foods, 5,800 calories a day.
According to simplistic calorie counting, Feltham should have gained 16 lbs (7.3 kg). But in reality, he only gained less than 3 lbs (1.3 kg).
Now Feltham has repeated his experiment with exactly the same amount of calories, but from carbohydrate-rich junk food. On the same amount of calories he gained more than five times as much weight: almost 16 lbs (7.1 kg)!
The difference in waist circumference was even more significant: 5,800 calories of LCHF food for three weeks reduced his waist measurement by 1 1/4 inches (3 cm). The same amount of junk food led to a 3 1/2 inch (9.25 cm) increase in his waist. And you can see the difference visually. Continue Reading →
