"Lore of Nutrition: Challenging Conventional Dietary Beliefs" by Tim Noakes and Marika Sboros is quite possibly the most important book about nutrition that has ever been written!
It should be required reading for all doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, and anyone who has struggled with obesity or other chronic diseases (Cancer, Type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, Alzthemiers, leaky gut, IBS, PCOS, Hashimoto's, etc...).
In a nutshell, this book tells the story of Tim Noakes, a physician, an A-1 rated scientist, and professor at the University of Cape Town who was put on trial (for his medical license) because of a tweet he shared.
A registered dietitian didn’t agree with the advice he shared, so she reported him to the local medical board (the HBCSA) in South Africa (that is where he lives).
Turns out the charges and subsequent trial wasn’t really about a tweet, but it was more a conspiracy designed to silence him because they (the dieticians, medical community,...
US News and World Report recently released their list of the best diets for 2018 and at first, I was surprised that the "Keto diet" was ranked dead last considering how much better I feel after eating this way for almost 3 years now.
But then the more I thought about it... I guess I'm not really surprised.
These rankings are based on the current dietary guidelines which the US adopted in 1977.
Since the low-fat movement was recommended by the US government, obesity and Type 2 diabetes rates have been steadily on the rise.
Here's how the ranked the Keto diet based on their criteria, then I share my response below in italics:
Best Diabetes Diet: 2.3 out of 5 stars.
They claim keto is minimally effective in preventing or controlling diabetes.
Several people who have taken my 100 Day Keto challenge have actually reversed their Type 2 diabetes diagnosis and have been able to come off of their medication (with their doctors blessing).
Easy to Follow Diet: 1.4 out of 5 stars....
There's a new documentary on Netflix that I certainly DO NOT recommend you watch.
If it was a school project... the teacher would have flunked the knuckleheads who made the film because they obviously made stuff up to support many of their claims.
Normally, I wouldn't even make a post to bring any attention to this steaming pile of ...
but it's on Netflix, so a lot of people are watching it...
and since many of my FB friends know I am a huge proponent of the ketogenic diet...
I get asked about it often.
Now I'll simply reply with the words "pure vegan propaganda" and a link to this post.
To be fair... I haven't even watched the film and I have no plans to.
I watched the trailer and that was enough to get me to want to throw something at my TV.
I considered cancelling my Netflix subscription in protest, but there are too many other great Netflix shows I love so I can't let this one piece of shit mockumentary rob me from enjoying House of Cards and ...
