  • How do people do that, exactly?   --   Take a look at Examine.com - excellent information.  So seedy sales pitch.  Does 7 figures a year with very little overhead and staff.  There are plenty of businesses that are on the up and up.  I'…
  • While I have struggled with blood sugar all my adult liffe, 2 years ago I was officially diagnosed as Type 2 diabetic. My A1C was 9.5% and fasting levels of glucose were well over 200. Have been doing a combo of intermittent fasting, low carb and mu…
  • Oh and if anyone reads the link - I know some will say it was the carbs because the study mentions the use of a muffin but there are studies that actually show low carb diets lead to insulin resistance.  It's going crazy on fat that does it.  
  • ...or, it could be that fatty liver is the product of the glycerol 3-phosphate pathway.  I guess it depends on which biochemistry books you are reading.   We are doing a show about diabetes tonight.  You can watch us here.   -- …
  • Any Type 2 Diabetics please answer if you can.   Any thoughts?    Yes I have been losing weight on the BP coffee and 2 meals a day but - high blood sugar is not what I want to see and I'm getting cold again - adrenals and thyroid are not likin…
  • That's cool - yeah, my LDL was pretty wonky and unpredictable during weight loss too. 
  • yeah i wouldn't be surprised if the TSH and cholesterol was interrelated, not sure what the causal direction would be or if it's just a correlation.    as far as vitamin C, only 1 gram in the morning, and did add in another dose in the evening…
  • I've been thinking about getting some colostrum:   http://www.townsendletter.com/June2014/leaky0614.html
  • She's an absolute air head.    She encourages people to eat processed foods because they take out this 1 scary sounding ingredient.      Do I care about what Starbucks puts in their caramel lattes?  There's a great local coffee shop just…
  • It's always been real.  The media took hold of a study and misrepresented the results -    http://betterhealthx.com/wheat-gluten-free-celiacs-and-fad-diets   The study that confused people actually showed that people with IBS were being …
  • Do you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables?     In the body building forums I'd follow this would happen to people the first time they started eating "clean" (more protein/meats in their diet) and the root cause was always a lack of hydration a…
  • Didn't Paul J also say eating more than 150grams of protein a day is toxic? 
  • @Michelle - wow - that's pretty amazing.      And yeah, no one bothered to answer your question :-)   About ketone levels, I've never had very good luck with getting into ketosis through simple carb restriction or manipulating protein/fa…
  • Why don't you take metformin if you're Type II?  Lots of low carb people take it, fix their blood sugar and then get off it.     It's not possible to say what your calorie load is.  I would take your weight, and multiply by 10 and use that as …
  • Silicon Valley Entrepreneur Dave Asprey was in the Himalayans meditating on yak butter tea and conversing with the indigenous hunter gatherer zen monks.   They told that him in Ayurvedic practice, caffeine, garlic and even onions can bring abo…

  • One of these guys should answer with: egg whites, a slice of toast, diet coke and a Slimfast.  
  • Ray Cronise inspired?   --   Of course, straight from the 4hr Body.  Sucker for fad diets that I am!
  •   Oh, and by the way, on the ketogenic diet (no starchy veg., only green), I almost lost my gallbladder, but I lost about 50 lbs. all told, so that's why I'm convinced that carbs are the most significant factor in weight loss. I've also seen my D…
  • I would really like to see red delicious apples evaluated to the 'Green' zone of the infographic.  Until then, I'm going to keep buying his supplements and feel sort of cheated about it.
  • Is it?  This is what happens to your potatoes - even without GM - (and this is why I pay hippie prices for organic):   http://youtu.be/TX7kwfE3cJQ?t=3m3s
  • Potatoes and rice are not GM.  It's safe to say that if you are shopping single ingredient whole foods (potatoes, rice, fruits, veggies) they are not genetically modified.   GM in the US is all about big agra - Corn, Soy, Canola, Sugar Beets and it'…
  • The macrobiotic diet, also heavily criticized inThe Low Carb Myth, by the way, is not vegan. They eat fish. The ones I know are in excellent health. My sister was suffering RSI, my brother post viral syndrome, healed by the macro-idiotic diet. I kno…
  • By the way, vegan diets are HIGH carb and mostly low fat and most vegans are very thin.     It's true - vegans are the skinniest of all- even skinnier than the vegetarians:   http://www.andjrnl.org/article/S2212-2672%2813%2901…
  • @Rekah - Agreed. I would love to see a book that just goes over how to use low carb effectively as a "bridge" to better health. How to improve insulin resistance, how to get into a more sensible way of eating etc..for the long term.
  • The book doesn't attack the bp or paleo but some of the key underlying assumptions. As for my inclusion of the bp diet in the fad category, that is and was my own opinion. I do like the taste of bp coffee just fine, but some of the claims about it…
  • Embrace the diet wars and only then will you know true inner peace.
  • Hey Daz - Yes, they attack Robert Lustig on the fructose issue. They basically reference this article: http://www.alanaragonblog.com/2010/01/29/the-bitter-truth-about-fructose-alarmism/ Here's an article from Taubes on fructose: http:/…
  • @Maureen22 - I did read the book.  Did you read it all the way through?   They mock Dave and say his diet doesn't include any fruits, veggies or starches.  I looked it up for you it's at Location 3573 in Kindle. They link  to a picture on Face…
  • I downloaded a copy of this book a few days ago - if you understand the following the book is useless crap:   - LCHF makes you full and creates an energy deficit so you lose fat - LC isn't necessary for good health and higher carb intakes a…
