What is LCHF anyway?

In the next few posts I’m going to spend time on the basics of LCHF, not the hardcore science of nutrition.  There’s plenty more of that to come again soon. I’m starting with our view of what the Low Carb Healthy Fat lifestyle is all about (and why you’d do it). Here’s our “Skinny version” by me, Prof […]

The real food guidelines

It’s a food fight. The time has finally come where a deep and important line needs to be drawn in the sand.  No more throwing bad science and bad advice around.  Stop!

LCHF success, but will protein kill me?

Here’s a great letter about LCHF success but with an important question. I hope you enjoy Norman’s story – it’s a nice one about improved weight, energy and health.  Great blood results, but some concern about protein.

NZ’s health leaders respond to our research publicity: Saturated fat…its bad, low carb radical and unsafe

It was no surprise to see this one coming.  A perfect storm for the old powers that be in New Zealand obesity research and practice. The BMJ paper on why we got the saturated fat thing wrong, the ABC Catalyst series, and me out and about in the media talking about low carb high fat. I […]
