Great Health Blogs, Primarily with an LCHF or Paleo Focus

Do you follow any really great health blogs? Primarily – but not necessarily – blogs with a focus on LCHF, Paleo or “real food” nutrition and lifestyle?

Here’s our way of keeping track of the latest and greatest in that area:

    I use the NEW page on this blog all the time. In fact, it is the quality of the blogs you link to and how fresh you keep the NEW page that makes me use this site as a portal for almost all my LCHF reading. I take your links as an endorsement of the quality and integrity of blogs I can visit, and I really appreciate that you edit out the snake-oil salesmen who want to cash in on LCHF.

    The blog I like best (after this one) is from Jason Fung, but I also like Peter Attia, Hyperlipid, and Marion Nestle for her political eye. All news of Gary Taubes and Nina Teicholz is very welcome.

    I guess I find the tone and advertising on Jimmy Moore's site a little strange at times - maybe I should call it inconsistent with my ideas of real food. Equally, I really don't get why Dr Adam Nally is so close to the top of the list - I have found nothing helpful there.

    Lately, I have got a lot out of reading about metabolic flexibility on J Stanton's gnolls.org.

    Please consider linking to two of my blogs:
    Paleo Diabetic at https://paleodiabetic.com
    and Diabetic Mediterranean Diet at http://diabeticmediterraneandiet.com

    Both of them focus on low-carb high-fat eating for folks with diabetes. I have a multi-year track record but may only post once per week.

    Thanks for your consideration.

  4. Steve,
    I added your blogs, looks like they're very interesting (may take a short while for the new-page to update).
  5. Yes I'd love to but I can't find a RSS-feed to thefatemperor. Can someone help me find it?

    Do you know why Dr. Briffa stopped posting? I really liked his blog.

    I'm a survivor of Hashi's turned thyroid cancer and PCOS, plus some other fun chronic diseases. :)

    I blog about my journey to health and balance with a "real food" focus at Carrie on Living: http://www.carrieonliving.com.

    Thanks!!!

    To John d: Thank you so much for posting the link to thefatemperor.com. It's a great collection of scientific topics which will be of interest to many LCHFers. On it I just watched one of the most fascinating lectures I have ever seen. For those interested in cancer, I would recommend it highly.

    Stephen: I second your comment about the cancer lecture. Must see by all!

    To think that cancer is possibly the reversion of the cell (due to external insult) to running its own stored default operative programming (primal dna), ie, the code base that drove its single cell ancestors two-four billion years ago, is mind boggling!

    The elegant humility of the scientist (Prof Davies) and the extraordinary grandeur of the concept is a beautiful juxtaposition.

    Hi Andreas,
    you have a link to "weighty matters" blog. I don't agree with that decision.

    Yoni Freedhoff wrote about Gary Taubes: "he’s decided that living creatures are magical beings that live independently of the laws of physics and thermodynamics".

    You publicise a guy that lacks a basic understanding of obesity and nutrition.

    I would remove that link, but this is obviously your web page. It is your call, not mine.

    A lot of these also have Twitter, which I find is updated much more often. For instance, Dr. Eades and Nina Tiecholz (Big Fat Surprise) both have twitter feeds. You do have more "noise" though on Twitter. Also, I access their feeds via the Web and not through twitter apps.

    I'm bummed that Dr. Briffa seems to have ceased to post, as has Gary Taubes. Both of these were great.

    Another one to consider is the following:

    http://eathropology.com/

    Her main emphasis is criticizing the current nutritional guidelines (in the US), and how they are created and revised, but she does it in a way that's incredibly funny and perceptive. If she has an entry relevant to a topic, I usually send someone to her blog first, then follow that up with a more "intense" blog. For instance, for the debate on salt and the current guidelines, I'd send someone to eathropology, then to Gary Taubes.

    After I found her blog, I read every entry, as they are funny, relatively simple to understand, and perceptive.

  17. I disagree with him almost as often as I agree with him. But it's important to get some perspective.

    Thank you for adding Adele Hite at Eathropology, I always look forward to her posts.
    Some others who may be of interest for this list:

    Ellen Davis at http://www.ketogenic-diet-resource.com
    Amy Berger at http://www.tuitnutrition.com
    (now deep into a long series on the metabolic theory of cancer started in Nov, relieved by shorter food topics with a touch of her dry humor)

    Two blogs that I read daily and recommend for the for the Blog News page are:
    Nutrition Secrets (http://www.nutritionsecrets.com/) - explores a range of nutrition and health related topics in resourceful, easy-to-read articles
    Integrative Nutrition (http://www.integrativenutrition.com/blog) - shares info and advice on health trends, fitness, recipes and more

    Let me know what you think of these!

    Hi Andreas,

    How about CJHUNTREPORTS.com

    New home of my documentary, The Perfect Human Diet, Reporter's Blog, new film projects (like PHD2) and the new "how-to" companion book to the film this October 1.

    Sincerely,
    CJ

    I already said this, but I feel the need to insist: there is no good reason to promote Freedhoff's web site. You wouldn't be exactly censoring him, people can always use google to find his site.

    Yoni Freedhoff talks about Teicholz's COI and recommends reading a comment by carbsane with a petition to remove Teicholz's piece. What else do you need to read from him?

    Reply: #28
  25. I find Freedhoff interesting even if I often do not agree completely with him.

    That other person you mention on the other hand is more stale and long-winded reading which may be why almost nobody on the planet reads the blog any more (according to Alexa.com). And why only 3 people signed that petition so far, including the creator...

    Reply: #29
  26. Vicente
    I believe you find him interesting, but his ideas are clearly counter-productive if you are overweight or obese, as may be the case of some of your readers. Following Freedhoff's ideas I would still be obese, I can tell you that.

    May be, as a suggestion, you could place Guyenet, Nestle and Freedhoff in a special separate section of blog news: "A few blogs not related to LCHF", or something like that.

    Replies: #30, #31
  27. Interesting suggestion, we might do that. Let me think about it.
  28. bill
    Great idea. When reading these people, the
    word "disingenuous" comes to mind.
  29. Jim
    Hi Andreas,
    Love your site, interesting info I can trust.
    I like a blog called Kale & Cocoa http://www.kaleandcocoa.com/
    Eat well, age well - interesting articles, recipes and the photos are well done.
    have a look, see what you think.

    It's been suggested before, and Ithink that Tuit Nutrition has some very good content: http://www.tuitnutrition.com/

    In particular, check out her "ITIS" (It's the Insulin, Stupid) series.

  31. Keith
    Agree strongly with comment from Janknitz Oct 20. Have just discovered Tuitnutrition myself, not sure how, and think it's great. Very relaxed style and informative. Amy is doing a great job and deserves more recognition.

    I would like to see Abel James Fat Burning Man blog on here if possible
    http://fatburningman.com/
  33. Karen
    Just a quick 'Thank You' for the blog page and especially the "New" posts highlighted in red. This is a fantastic resource and allows for quickly keeping updated on all that's new in the LCHF world!
  34. K. Prentice
    A great addition to the Blog Page would be Jess Dudley's 'Find Your Food' http://www.findyourfood.org/

    It's a clean, uncluttered blog (no advertising and updated nearly every day) which is high on the motivational factor for those who find support for LCHF on the internet. Thanks in advance!

    I don't think this belongs on this site. His "high" cholesterol fear-mongering is directly opposite what current thinking and your cholesterol expert MD says.

  37. gbl
    The information about cholesterol here ^ ^ is wrong and fearmongering. Pure Framingham and should be removed. There is NOTHING wrong with a total cholesterol of 12 or LDL over 5. Information like this is what sends people to doctors with active prescription pads that have a Pfizer logo.

    I came to ancestral eating by way of help with migraines, there has been weight loss but the health I have now, 80% reduction in migraine pain, less brain fog, better sleep, skin tags gone, less congestion and digestive troubles have convinced me that this is truly the way I need to eat. As someone who has tried multiple diets, from vegetarianism, to weight watchers, to rotation and many others, I have never been so happy, healthy, even keeled, lack of highs and lows etc. as I am now after about 2.5 months of Ketogenic eating. I would love to read more on what this way of eating benefits. It seems like there are so many things that are healed by this lifestyle, if you could make a pill that delivered these results Big Pharmacy would be all over it. Thank you for this great site.

    The link to Ramblings of a Carnivore no longer has a blog attached to it.

    Here is an interesting blog about the science behind low carb and keto diets.

    They actively host podcast on research papers and make great scientific articles

    I think you should consider is in your new dashboard http://breaknutrition.com

    I've lost 30lbs in the last 12 months by cutting carbs from my diet and focusing on getting into, and staying, (for as long as possible), in Ketosis. Its not easy.but if you focus on minimizing carbs and increasing natural fat consumption, you'll see results.. LCHF Low Carb, High Fat, should be your mantra. Cut carbs and consume more fat. like coconut oil, whipping cream, avocado, fatty cuts of meat, pork rinds, cheese, and butter, lots of butter. its counter intuitive, but makes sense. Cutting carbs will help you eliminate the viscous insulin loop. The more carbs your eat, the more carbs you crave...so stop eating carbs already!. Eating more fat sates your hunger further. Eventually you wont even be hungry most of the time, which is when you move into intermittent fasting. That's when the real fat burning happens! Imagine not being hungry at all and know you're rapidly burning your own fat. That's Ketosis. You can measure your Keto state using Keto urine sticks. The darker pink the test strip, the more fat you are burning. But be warned, its not easy to get into this state. However, once you're in it' its very, very rewarding. Just know it its not a gimmick, it actually works. It's not a diet its a lifestyle. Carbs and sugar will kill you eventually. the sooner you eliminate them from your life, the better off you'll be. Just my 2 cents. Thanks Andreas for making it much easier to ignore all the fake news about modern nutrition. Cheers. JP

    Andreas, I started the facebook group called, ""The Vegetarian Low Carb Diabetic Healthy Diet Society"*(www.facebook.com/groups/veglowcarb) about 8+ years ago. We now have more than 6 thousand members from most every continent. There's also more than 200 very low carb recipes in the files section. A great resource for those who have maintained or just starting a plant based diet/lifestyle, but want to learn more about managing diabetes with high healthy fats and very low carb including Fung/intermittent fasting, keto, Dr. R.K Bernstein, Atkins/Virta?Phinney, Volek, Westman, Gary Taubes and Richard Feinman kinds of approaches. We've crossed paths at the Vail and Breckenridge conferences, but we haven't spoken much to date.

    Your blog needs serious updating! You have subtitles for 'inactive' blogs that are active and therefore many of us are missing great blog posts and you have blogs that haven't posted anything in nearly a year or more and are in your regular rotation of blogs. Also, could we please stop having blogs that post nothing but 'paleo' and 'keto' dessert/crap for every post!!!???? Let's stop bastardizing the words paleo, keto, low-carb, and LCHF with nothing but garbage replacement foods!! If people need those things to transition, there are better ways to get them (ie: Instagram, Twitter, etc). Stop making people have to roll their eyes and bang there head against the wall to see multiple posts such as these on a daily basis!!!
