World Heart Federation President: Fat Is Protective, Carbs are Harmful!

Get ready for action, with this new attention-grabbing talk by the president of the World Heart Federation, Professor Salim Yusuf. Here are just a few of the controversial, but likely correct, quotes:

  • “Above 40% carb we see a steep increase in CHD risk. Fats are protective.”
  • “Contrary to common belief the current recommendation to reduce saturated fat has no scientific basis.” (at 20:20)
  • “You must have heard of the book Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz. She shook up the nutrition world. But she got it right.” (at 20:33)

Yusuf also gets into the mistaken war on salt, where a moderate amount of sodium (3-5 grams per day) may be optimal.

It’s an excellent talk, if you can stand the slight over-reliance on observational data at some points (it normally does not prove cause and effect). Still, highly recommended!

Why Professor Noakes Supported High Carb


4.6 out of 5 stars5 stars77%4 stars12%3 stars2%2 stars4%1 star4%49 ratings1,455 views
Professor 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 out a segment 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. Watch a part of the presentation above (transcript).

Is It Insulin or Calories that Make Us Gain Weight?


4.7 out of 5 stars5 stars80%4 stars11%3 stars3%2 stars0%1 star2%152 ratings5,376 views
What really matters for weight loss? Calories in and calories out, or are our bodies’ weight carefully regulated by hormones, such as the fat-storing hormone insulin?

In this presentation from the 2015 LCHF Conference in Cape Town I describe why the second explanation – about hormones – makes much more sense. And why the first one – about calories – is a simplistic description that completely fails to address the cause of obesity.
