A Global Food Revolution

There’s a global food revolution going on. A paradigm shift in how we look at fat and sugar. Natural fat used to be feared – a terrible mistake, it turned out. Now we’re increasingly viewing sugar as the big problem.

But what advice are people with obesity or diabetes currently given? Could people lose weight and reverse type 2 diabetes by ignoring the dietary guidelines and doing the opposite instead? Eating delicious foods?

The LCHF movement is about how to empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health – before it’s too late. Here’s a short highlight from Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt’s presentation about the global food revolution. Watch it above (transcript).

    "There’s a global food revolution going on"

    Where ?

    Just camp for a day at the exit of a supermarket and check what people put and their carrier.

    I agree with Pierre. I don't see a revolution, either. I think with Google and social media sites tracking our search and like trends puts us in a bubble of confirmation bias. Vegans tell me all the time that their is a vegan revolution happening. Really? I don't think so. People are buying the same processed crappy carbage...just marketed under a different name...like "organic" or "natural ingredients" or "ancestral" or whatever. Or at least that is what I observe.

  3. All revolutions start small, certainly not with the majority of people. But there is a slow but steady move away from "fat is bad" to "sugar is bad", every year it gets closer to the tipping point. It's going to be an interesting 5-10 years coming up.

    Yes, but that wont stop people eating junk for the simple reason it tastes good.

    Tobacco is the perfect exemple, I think everybody on Earth knows that tobacco cause cancer. Does it stop them to smoke? NO

    Here the list of percentage of smoker around the world. Sweden beats the USA

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prevalence_of_tobacco_consumption

    Also, when I speak to people about LCHF and explain how it works they are always suspicious because it goes against what they heard for decades and still hear .

    When I see them weeks or months leater they did no change their eating habits. I wonder if they even bother to read the links I gave them.

    Most people will change only when they have a foot in the grave. Until that happen, they envoy their junk and make smile at you when you dont eat like them.

    They have invented a term for that : orthorexia

    So, for the system you suffer from mental ilness because you dont eat like the rest of the population.

    This is more like re-inventing the wheel, not a revolution. Common knowledge a 100 years ago...it's kinda obvious people are made up of what they eat.

    Not sure where to ask this but would like some help. First I am 75 years old, 5 months ago I started lchf since that time I started IF. Before I started I had blood work done every thing fell in normal range with cholesterol being a little high. I have been very good with what I eat and have lost 27 lbs. I feel much better, no gerd and sleep better. Last week the Dr. did blood work and to my surprise everything was worse, even to the point he wanted to start me on diabetes Meds, not doing it, another blood test in 3 mos. so my question is is this normal or do I need to do something else. Thank you for any answers you can give me.

    Are you eating enough fat, Barbara? If you cut out carbs, and then eat too much protein without keeping fat high, your body will convert the protein to glucose (in a process called gluconeogenesis). If you eat at least 70% of your calories as fat! you will discourage gluconeogenesis, and your body will burn fat instead. This is a common mistake people make when they start LCHF. For example, a green salad with grilled skinless chicken breast is not a good LCHF candidate. To make it LCHF you would need to increase the fat, for example adding avocado, or boiled egg, or bacon or substitute skinless breast with thigh that has the skin still on.

    The dawn phenomenon may partly be at fault for the high blood sugars. The sugar coming out of the liver into the blood where it can be seen. The effect is magnified in those with insulin resistance.

    I am not sure if I would say there is a revolution in the LCHF movement: certainly there is a groundswelling.

    More interesting than a revolution, though, is asking the question: "Is this some sort of process of natural selection?" The groundswelling is definitely a social shift of awareness. We know that a poor diet people will be less healthy, die younger, etc. Following the current ideas in neuroendocrinology, bad-diet-high-pharma people will likely eventually die out or be isolated subjects for grad students to study.

    The "Food Revolution" is a social criticism that runs through all sorts of portions of society in all sorts of ways. This social criticism creates paradigm shifts new perspectives and understandings. We see the shift in health, education, society, all creating new perspectives. The "Revolution" has only just begun.

    My grandmother survived the Spanish Flu Epidemic that swept the world in 1918-1919. More people died of influenza in a single year than in four-years of the Black Death Bubonic Plague from 1347 to 1351. As a teenager, I asked her why she lived. Her answer was that she had good food while most people had a poor diet. I have ever since wondered what kind of die-off there would be if all today's bad-diet people were struck with a simple flu pandemic. (Big-pharma could not come up with a vaccine or pill in a year to reduce the death-toll.)

    Is there a "Food Revolution"? Who knows. Maybe it is just a fad. However, there is an unstopable social criticism, this ground swelling, where absolutely every aspect of mainstream, traditional, or whatever bit of taught knowledge is being questioned in new and significant ways.

    Dr Eenfeldt,

    Here's an interesting report by Google on 2016 food trends in USA. I'm afraid LCHF food trend is not that strong: https://think.storage.googleapis.com/docs/FoodTrends-2016.pdf
    In fact, google is even seeing a resurgence in the consumption of foods like pasta. Yikes!

  12. Don't know about "resurgence", it seems to never have been out, can't see what's new:

    Barbara:
    I have been drinking a glass of water first thing every day on an empty stomach with 1 tbsp of organic, unfiltered, apple cider vinegar (with the mother); and a few drops of raw organic honey. My blood sugar went from 122 to 97 in 5 months! I also stick to lchf eating, my limit on carbs is 20g of carbs per serving max! The best ACV is Bragg, but other labels might be good as long as they are as I described above. Good luck, there is nothing about ACV that is harmful. 1/4 to 1/2 tsp honey should make is easy to consume.

    Yes. If one is allergic to moulds, fungi and yeast it will be a problem.

    here is nothing about ACV that is harmful.

    Si creo lento y seguro, las personas, sobre todo las diabeticas necesitan saber como efecta la comida nuestro organismo. Estoy en Venezuela (saben donde esta Venezuela?, en america del Sur) y hasta aqui me llega la información del Dr. Andreas, en mi cuerpo si funciona no comer carbohidratos, no he dejado de comerlos (harina de maiz, sobre todo, un poco de pasta, platanos verdes,... etc), y cuando como demasiado , me doy cuenta , por la glicemia, y lentamente (imperceptiblemente) un poco de aumento de peso, del cual estoy pendiente e inmediatamente corrijo la forma de comer y vuelvo a mi plan que me hace bien. Ya mi hijo come diferente, mas vegetales y ensaladas y pollo, carne, ya no tantos pasteles ni azucar con su cafe... que el haya cambiado su forma de alimentarse es un exito. Saludos desde Venezuela, Gracias Dr. Andreas
