“My Life Has Literally Changed”


Before and after

After visiting his doctor for a persistant headache, Shane was told that his blood pressure was sky high. Furthermore, his weight had reached an all-time high.

He immediately decided to try different weight-loss methods. But nothing worked and his weight just kept yoyo-ing up and down. Until he discovered the method that worked for him.

Suddenly Shane was “eating food which tasted GREAT, filled me up for hours and I was – for the first time in years – sleeping like a baby!”. On top of that he’s lost 70 lbs (32 kg). Here’s what he did: Continue Reading →


Dr. Harcombe on the Tsimane Study and Why Carbs Are Not the Answer to Improved Heart Health


Should you eat like the Tsimane?

Is a high-carb diet and intense exercise the secret behind the “healthiest hearts in the world”? This is what the media reported after a study of the Tsimane people in the Bolivian Amazon:

The Guardian: Tsimané of the Bolivian Amazon have world’s healthiest hearts, says study

However, it’s impossible to know what in their lifestyle causes heart health. It’s an enormously common mistake to use imperfect food questionnaires and correlate them with health data, drawing big conclusions.

This kind of suggestive statistical correlation – even in the best case scenarios – has been shown to be wrong 80% of the time! And yet it’s treated as fact in the media.

This is basically the main reason that the whole nutrition field has been such a disaster zone for decades, with high-carb guidelines marking the start of the obesity and diabetes epidemics.

Here’s some sanity, as Dr. Zoe Harcombe analyses the study and what it actually proves:

Heart disease is a disease of civilisation and that’s pretty much it. Industrialised people can do some helpful things to minimise heart disease (don’t smoke, be active and live outdoors near the equator).

However, there is a world of difference between the lifestyle of remote tribal people and Wall Street bankers. If you think eating several hundred calories of even unrefined carbohydrates, without being active for approximately 6 hours a day, will help, even without addressing the numerous and significant other stresses and exposures of modern life, you’re in for a disappointment at best and diabetes at worst.

Leaked Emails: Coke-Funded Research Deflects Blame for Obesity Away from Sugar


Can you trust a study which claims that the main culprits in obesity are lack of exercise and sleep, and excessive screen time? Maybe not if it is funded by Coke, in an attempt to deflect the blame away from sugar.

Here’s yet another example, where leaked emails show what’s really going on:

You can see Coca-Cola pulling the strings – the studies tend to be positive for them. When the studies are independent they are not. This is the tip of the iceberg. Commercial corruption of science and medicine is endemic. Science institutions collude with industry for financial gain at the expense of public health.

How to Reverse PCOS with Low Carb


Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is common, affecting up to 10% of women of childbearing age. Beyond menstrual irregularities and other physical symptoms – like acne, excessive facial hair and obesity – it’s a leading cause of infertility.

Children Eating Excessive Amounts of Sugar Develop Diseases Associated with Alcoholism

White sugar

Children are now developing fatty liver (which used to mainly affect alcoholics) and type 2 diabetes, as a result of excessive sugar consumption.

This is a terrible trend that Dr. Robert Lustig predicts might bring about the downfall of the social security and healthcare systems, unless some drastic measures are taken to combat this:

There are many myths surrounding low carb. It’s about time to bust them all, and realize that it is proven to be a highly effective and healthy method for managing type 2 diabetes and losing weight: Opinion: It’s Time to Clear Up the Misinformation About Low-Carb Diets

These researchers are now suggesting that the dietary guidelines need a rethink.

Can You Treat Cancer with Low Carb?

Can a ketogenic diet be helpful in cancer treatment? There are many reasons to believe this, e.g. that nearly all cancer cells burn lots of sugar, and grow more under the influence of high insulin levels. You could say that most cancer cells are addicted to carbs, for optimal growth.

I sat down with Dr. Angela Poff, one of the top experts in the field, and it turned into a very enlightening interview.

Watch a part of it above (transcript). The full interview is available (with captions and transcript) with a free trial or membership:
