Stressing Less to Get Pregnant


4.7 out of 5 stars5 stars69%4 stars30%3 stars0%2 stars0%1 star0%13 ratings551 viewsThe old piece of advice to eat less and run more is not effective for losing weight. It may even have negative effects, like infertility.

In fact, women might drastically increase their chances of becoming pregnant by avoiding common stressors such as over-exercise, calorie restriction and caffeine.

Here’s my interview with fertility expert Dr. Fox. Watch a segment above (transcript). The full, longer video is available on our member site:

“Why I Supported High Carb”


4.2 out of 5 stars5 stars57%4 stars12%3 stars22%2 stars5%1 star2%40 ratings1,762 viewsProfessor Tim Noakes has made a huge impact in South Africa, helping tens if not hundreds of thousands of people to transform their lives – losing weight effortlessly and reversing diabetes – on LCHF diets (or Banting, as it’s often called in South Africa).

But Professor Noakes was not always a low-carb supporter. For decades he used to be a major international proponent of high-carb diets, especially for athletes. Then he changed his mind, famously ripping a segment out of his own textbook on the subject.

So why did he support high carb earlier? And why did he change his mind completely? He told it all in his presentation at the LCHF Convention in Cape Town.

4.9 out of 5 stars5 stars90%4 stars4%3 stars4%2 stars0%1 star0%43 ratings909 viewsDoes fitness equal health? Or is there a point where you increase fitness at the expense of health, or vice versa?

Finally, can you use ketosis as a way to improve both health and fitness?

In this interview, Ivor Cummins sits down with Dr. Mark Cucuzzella. He gives great answers to these questions, relating them to his background in the military, as a doctor and as a runner.

Meta-Analysis: Physical Activity Not Effective for Treating Overweight Children

stadium with running tracks

Focusing on physical activity has no effect on treating childhood overweight and obesity, according to a new meta-analysis.

Not only is exercise not very helpful in controlling weight in the first place. It also turns out that overweight kids don’t really increase their physical activity in studies that try to get them to do so:

Obesity Review: Effectiveness of Interventions on Physical Activity in Overweight or Obese Children: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Including Studies with Objectively Measured Outcomes.

This means a double failure for the simplistic “let’s move” mentality.

Once again: you can’t outrun a bad diet. And kids, it seems, can’t even be forced to run in the first place (if anyone really thought that was a good idea).

Please note that I’m not advocating for sedentary lifestyles. I’m just pointing out that the ‘eat less, run more’ dogma is outdated. Physical activity is important for health, but has a negligible effect on weight.

There’s likely only one way to massively improve the childhood obesity problem. Make sure that kids get to grow up in a healthy food environment, without added sugars in everything.
