Professor Lustig: “Insulin Drives All of the Behaviors Seen in Obesity”

Lustig

The only way to fight the diabesity epidemic effectively is to switch to a low-sugar diet with real food, argues Professor Robert Lustig. That way your insulin (the fat-storing hormone) dramatically drops and you can lose weight effortlessly.

In contrast to popular false beliefs, weight loss and health should not be a constant battle uphill through calorie restriction, which simply doesn’t work:

Following current dietary advice is counterintuitive to achieving a healthy weight.

The reason is the myth of energy balance. If you believe this, then you believe that obesity is a physics problem; too much energy in, too little energy out. Energy balance assumes that all calories are equal, no matter where they come from. Rather, obesity is about energy deposition into fat tissue. Obesity is a biochemistry problem, and where those nutrients came from determine where they go in the body. It’s called nutritional biochemistry and it shows that all calories are not created equal.

Why the Simple Waist-To-Height Ratio Is a Powerful Health Measurement

Above is a great infographic by Dr. Ted Naiman explaining the concept.

The test is also basically free and anyone can do it at home. Not sure how to measure? Check out the picture below: Continue Reading →

Weight Control – The Calories vs. Insulin Theory

What really matters for weight loss? Calories in and calories out, or is our body weight carefully regulated by hormones, like the fat-storing hormone insulin?

In this presentation from the 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.

Why should we care about high triglycerides? Doctors always obsess about LDL cholesterol and barely a word is heard about triglycerides, yet high blood triglycerides strongly and independently predict cardiovascular disease, almost as powerfully as LDL. Continue Reading →

Hyperinsulinemia – What Insulin Does in Your Body


4.7 out of 5 stars5 stars85%4 stars4%3 stars2%2 stars1%1 star4%263 ratings8,710 viewsBy controlling the insulin in your body you can control both your weight and many other aspects of your health.

But exactly what does insulin do in your body? What factors raise and lower insulin? How can you effectively control your insulin?

Dr. Ted Naiman gives you tons of knowledge in this great presentation from the Low-Carb Cruise 2016. It was my favorite talk of the cruise, but I did not think it would be everyone’s cup of tea, as it’s really fast. My mistake! It has already become one of the most popular videos ever at Diet Doctor.

This talk is full of ideas that you can put to use right away. Watch a section from it above (transcript).

4.8 out of 5 stars5 stars86%4 stars9%3 stars2%2 stars0%1 star1%201 ratings6,996 viewsIs obesity mainly caused by the fat storing hormone insulin? And if so, why do many people still not agree at all?
