“Why I Supported High Carb”


4.2 out of 5 stars5 stars56%4 stars12%3 stars23%2 stars5%1 star2%39 ratings1,740 views Audio onlyProfessor 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.

Why Red Meat Won’t Kill You

Medium Roasted T-Bone Steak

Recent headlines are filled with proclamations that ‘Meat Kills!’ Nothing sells newspapers like the old chestnuts – meat kills!, saturated fat is bad! Let’s take a quick look at this most recent study see if we can draw some conclusions. The study was called ‘Association of Animal and Plant Protein Intake with All-Cause and Cause-Specfic Mortality‘, and published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

This took data from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, a large prospective cohort. This means they followed 131 342 patients over decades, asking them what they ate. Some of them will die or develop other illnesses and then they look at the database collected to see if there are any associations. You can’t make any inference of causality, but many people do anyway. Why not? Continue Reading →

Physician Handing Out Diet Doctor-Inspired Low-Carb Pamphlets

dietdoctor

We’re very happy to hear that more and more doctors recognize the power of low carb as a treatment for common disorders like obesity, type 2 diabetes and other health issues.

We also get happy when we hear that doctors hand out Diet Doctor-inspired pamphlets to their patients to teach them about low carb. Such as this beautiful thing below, that is apparently handed out by a doctor in New Jersey:
