Low Carb Great for Treating Type 2 Diabetes


Both patients and doctors find that a low-carb diet can be very helpful for type 2 diabetics. It doesn’t cause a big spike in glucose after meals and it helps achieve weight loss.

Here’s another new article about it, where a doctor even says ‘If [low carb] were a drug, companies would be running large trials to get it licensed.’

Diet, Health and an Epidemic of Misinformation

Cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra speaks up on things that others keep quiet about. In this presentation he’s on fire – taking on the shenanigans of Big Food, Big Pharma, and the gullibility and (sometimes) ineptitude of modern health care.

The result of all this is a situation where people get sick from the food they are recommended (or the food that is available), and then they are prescribed way to many medications and they are exposed to way to many medical procedures. The result? Poor health, tons of side effects and a bankrupted healthcare system.

The solution? It’s not going to be easy. But it starts with exposing the problems, the bias and the corruption. Sometimes sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Watch a part of the presentation above (transcript). The full presentation is available (with captions and transcript) with a free trial or membership:

Soda Sales at Deepest Valley Since 1985


US soda sales are at the lowest since 1985. And they’re not likely to pick up soon, as reports about the potentially brain-damaging properties of sugary drinks are spreading.

Great news for people’s enlightenment and health, but not-so-great news for Big Soda:

Experts: Popular Belief That Saturated Fats Clog Up Arteries “Plain Wrong”


The poplar belief that saturated fats clog up arteries is just plain wrong. That’s the message from three cardiologists in a just published editorial, summarizing the fairly convincing evidence:

BJSM: Saturated fat does not clog the arteries: coronary heart disease is a chronic inflammatory condition, the risk of which can be effectively reduced from healthy lifestyle interventions

Instead of worrying about saturated fats or cholesterol, the cardiologists advise people to eat “real food” (like a higher-fat Mediterranean diet), stop smoking and consider stress reduction and regular physical activity. See the image above.

Here’s the main message in the editorial by Dr. Aseem Malhotra and colleagues:

It is time to shift the public health message in the prevention and treatment of coronary artery disease away from measuring serum lipids and reducing dietary saturated fat.

Coronary artery disease is a chronic inflammatory disease and it can be reduced effectively by walking 22 minutes a day and eating real food.

The media is all over the message this morning. It gets criticism from some experts, and support from many others:

If you ask me the experts are likely to be right. It’s certainly time to stop obsessing about saturated fats and LDL cholesterol, as the link to heart disease in likely to be nonexistent and weak, respectively. If eating low-fat foods make you hungry and cause you to increase intake of sugar and refined carbs (as often happens) it may even be harmful.

Many experts are still stuck in an old failed paradigm, still fearing natural fats. It’s time to let it go. Fat is your friend.

The Low-Carb Doctor Who Couldn’t Be Silenced

Can it be dangerous for a physician to talk about nutrition with his patients? So dangerous that the authorities tell him to never, ever talk about nutrition again?

Dr. Gary Fettke is a low-carb messenger who, in a similar way to Professor Noakes in South Africa, authorities have tried to silence. All for giving his patients empowering nutritional advice, like avoiding carbs for people with obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Fortunately, Dr. Fettke absolutely refuses to be silenced. In our interview, he explains what has happened to him. And why it is a matter of principle to stand up against dietary dogma.

You can watch a segment from the interview above (transcript). The full video is available on our member site:

Professor Schofield: End Chocolate-Selling As a Fundraiser

Professor Grant Schofield, health adviser to the New Zealand government and proponent of a low-carb, high-fat diet, wants to see an end to the selling of chocolate as a fundraiser in schools:

Fundraising through confectionery just isn’t a good look. Families like mine end up with 60-plus chocolate bars in the house.

We don’t want to have to ask others to buy them and don’t want to return them so we end up with that many bars. They will get eaten and we don’t need that much sugar in our house. Surely we can do something more imaginative.

Sounds like an excellent idea.

Here’s her story about how she ended up at Diet Doctor:

I started following you on Twitter, based on following such people as Gary Taubes and Peter Attia. From there I saw the articles and videos you linked to on your site. You, and the articles, were a major factor in getting me back to low-carb eating. In fact, you introduced me to the idea of low-carb, high fat, and for that, I am eternally grateful.
