ABC Catalyst – Low Carb Diet: Fat or Fiction?

Australia’s top science show – ABC’s Catalyst ran this story late last week.  If you haven’t already watched it, here is a link friendly to people outside of Australia.

Interesting “no shows” by the Heart Foundation and Diabetes Australia.

Author: Prof. Grant Schofield

I am Grant Schofield, Professor of Public Health at Auckland University of Technology and director of the university's Human Potential Centre (HPC) located at the Millennium Campus in Auckland, New Zealand. My research and teaching interests are in wellbeing and chronic disease prevention especially reducing the risk and eventual mortality and morbidity from obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. I live by the motto "be the best you can be" and have a strong commitment to peak performance in which I also do consulting work. I’ve been interested in human health and performance for my whole career. I started in psychology, went into sport and exercise psychology, then into public health, especially physical activity, then obesity. There have been some twists and turns along the way, which are the reasons for why I do what I do – you can read about those in my first blog entry. I want to know how we can be the best we can be. This crosses disciplines such as biology, medicine, pubic health, and productivity management. The cornerstones are nutrition, exercise, sleep, neuroscience, psychology and wellbeing. In my blog, I cover these topics under the broad heading of the Science of Human Potential.

One thought on “ABC Catalyst – Low Carb Diet: Fat or Fiction?”

  1. A Google search for this show turns up two pages at ABC. One has the downloadable MP4 video file plus transcript, the other has the MP4 video file plus journal article PDFs and other links. Here is the latter: http://www.abc.net.au/catalyst/lowcarb/

    At least one journal article PDF is available from outside the BJSM paywall. 😉
