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.
A traditional pork roast with a rich and creamy sauce is great for Sunday dinner with the family. It takes some time to prepare but it’s all worth it when you see happy faces all around your kitchen table.
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:
Why the negative trend? Majorly because of continuing increases in lifestyle-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
We received this fantastic e-mail from a very happy Nikolas, about his quick type 2 diabetes reversal:
My name is Nikolas and I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes four months ago. At this moment, the last days of December 2016, I am completely diabetes free without using any medications at all! I am free from any kind of medication. My doctor just used the standard protocol and prescribed Metformin for me but since making my research on your website I decided to go low carb high fat!

The Diet Doctor camera crew and I got the honor of sitting down with Dr. Dominic D’Agostino, one of the leading researchers in the field of ketosis, right in his lab in Florida. It became a very interesting interview with useful answers to questions, that anyone interested in ketosis will love.
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:
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.
Flavorful portabello mushrooms are a great and filling alternative to meat. Here with delicious low-carb root celery fries, vegetables and a spicy aioli.
As Siberian tribes become exposed to instant noodles and carb-rich foods, the first signs of obesity – previously unheard of – start to show:
Going back to a traditional lower-carb diet rich in fatty fish and venison would most likely eradicate these signs, in the same way that a lower-carb diet based on real food could likely halt the obesity epidemic in the rest of the world.
