She Was Saved by Ketosis


4.4 out of 5 stars5 stars66%4 stars22%3 stars0%2 stars6%1 star4%48 ratings2,181 viewsMichel Lundell managed to get his epilepsy under control using a ketogenic diet (this is now an accepted and proven treatment). To make it easier to track his ketone levels – and being an engineer – he then developed the first ketone breath analyser, called Ketonix.

He’s joined in this presentation by Alison Gannett who have used a ketogenic diet to combat terminal brain cancer, another potentially very life-changing use of the diet.

Here’s another new intervention study showing that a ketogenic diet is superior to other diets in treatment of type 2 diabetes:

Journal of Medical Internet Research: An Online Intervention Comparing a Very Low-Carbohydrate Ketogenic Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations Versus a Plate Method Diet in Overweight Individuals With Type 2 Diabetes: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Plenty of earlier studies show similar results. It’s about time this very low-carb diet becomes standard treatment for a disease defined by excessive sugar in the body.

Close-up of a senior man contemplating

US life expectancy is taking a hit, due to obesity and type 2 diabetes, etc.

The trend is clear according to a new report by the WHO – the US has a very low life expectancy, in comparison to other developed nations. Minimal gains over the coming years will make it equal to that of Mexico by 2030:

CNBC: US Life Expectancy Is Low and Is Now Projected to Be on Par with Mexico by 2030

Why the negative trend? Majorly because of continuing increases in lifestyle-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease.

Coke Running for President of the National Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics

Neva Cochran – 9/28/2016

The world’s largest organization of dietitians, The National Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, is about to elect its new president. One of the two candidates, Neva Cochran, is an industry-funded consultant. Not surprisingly she’d spreading advice that’s great for the soda industry and not so good for people’s health and weight:

Medium: Coke is Running for President of the National Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics

Cochran has made several highly questionable statements (to say the least), some of which include:

  • “If a job that requires a lot of physical exertion like a postman delivering mail by foot, a construction worker, a landscaper or a server in a busy restaurant, a regular soft drink can replace calories burned along with refreshment. On the other hand, someone working in a sedentary office position and also trying to lose weight could opt for a calorie-free soda.”
  • Active teens: soda, lemonade, sweet tea & choc milk can replace calories & fluid.
  • Plain water isn’t that appealing.

If you think that having Coke as president of the largest organization of dietitians is potentially harmful, and want to do something about it, then you could tell any nutrition professionals you may know to vote in the election.
