Here’s what our members have said about the interview:

What a great interview with Dr. Westman! It validates what I speculated to myself the problem was. I had just started losing weight again when I discovered “bullet-proof coffee.” Instantly (within 1 week) I gained 3 pounds (1 kg)!

Another great tip (that I had noticed and am now validated) is that I need to wait 15 – 20 min before I get a true reading on how hungry I actually am.

Dr. Eenfeldt, thank you so much! I have a doctor’s appointment coming up next week and had worked myself into such a “funk” that I was going to be heavier than my last visit. Now I have renewed self-confidence and believe I know how to continue.

Great interview.
I would like to see more of these type of interviews where Dr. Eenfeldt has more interaction with the interviewee.

Yes this was an interesting interview – good to identify several issues that are likely contributing to my weight loss slowing/stalling. At 59, I am post menopause (& 10 years post breast cancer treatment). It’s nice to know that these are known issues and not just me!

    Dear diet Doctor, thanks for all the helpful information! One quick question, if excess calories, even best-choice calories, can stall or hinder weight loss, do you think the same applies to blood sugar? Some days my blood sugars test great and some days they are higher even though I'm eating strict low carb every day. Could it be that some days I consume too many "good" calories without realizing it? I understand food isn't the only factor when it comes to blood sugar but it is bizarre at times. I have reached my goal weight and am not gaining or losing any more, which is fine. I began low carb to control/reverse diabetes and have not yet reached my target blood sugar range, but am MUCH closer. I see improvements every month. Thank you in advance.

    So now the bullet proof coffee should be limited? Confusing.
  3. Jane Watkins
    Yes I think that having a bullet coffee for breakfast was a good way to go as never hungry for breakfast - and might or might not eat lunch - but my weight had stalled greatly - no weight on but stopped loosing and still need to shift another 5 kilos!!! What am I doing wrong ? Don't eat bread or potatoes etc- eat cheese / meat / salad and veg/ glass of red wine in evening and do try and fast 16 hrs- any answers ? Jane

    Last kilos can be really hard to lose. You could try to fast for a little longer if you already are following all other advices.

    I think you have to stop telling low-carbers who live in northern climes to eat only vegetables that grow above ground. Ask Dr. Wortman how far he got with that once he wasn't paying the food bills for his test subjects. Ask the "Fixing Dad" physician who worked in northern Canada how realistic it would have been for him to suggest that there.

    Above ground plants come thousands of miles from Florida and California to Canadian supermarkets, and costs are out of reach for all but a few, mostly male salaries. Even when those vegs are grown here in a few weeks window, supermarkets won't stock local because they are contracted to the American owned growers and shippers. And many Canadians are balking now to buy those foods that have been flown or trucked those thousands of miles on fossil fuels polluting our air and waters. Root vegs can be stored all winter, plus some cruciferous. Kale and 'mesclun' cannot.

    Trivial fact: Turnips are called *Swedes* in Canada.

    I'm now having a bowl of home-made bone broth with some butter for breakfast. I make 2 pans at a time, and deep freeze them. Makes a great no-fuss breakfast !

    I have been Ketogenic since April April 2017. Been doing good, lost 55lbs and then, I started feeling weak and sick. Lower back pain.
    I am still having urine sticks showing small ketones but my blood sugar is at 95 to 99 all day long.
    The most carb rich foods I eat are Avacados, Zucchini and cabbage.
    I am conserned about this and possibly having ketoacidosis due to having sugar AND ketones in my body.
    Should I be conserned? What is this phenomenon?
    Have I forced my body into T1 diabetes?
