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! The “food pyramid” guidelines are still alive (and well?) in New Zealand (see here). They are outdated, old school and quite simply wrong. […]

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. In fact, its been a big week for protein.  The story about two research papers lead to headlines […]

Why you are designed to eat and burn fat…your big brain

I’ve just finished a couple of public lectures and had a big two page spread and a front page piece in the national newspaper about our work in low carb high fat eating.

More on low carb and diabetes

Last week I wrote a short piece on low carb and diabetes, specifically Type 1 diabetes. That’s the diabetes where the body can’t produce insulin (aka Diabetes Mellitus or T1DM). Conventional wisdom has it that people with T1DM should eat a decent amount of carbs (200+ grams a day), which is a fair bit, and […]

Joseph Kraft: Why hyperinsulinemia matters

Science has a history of ignoring some of the most important and astonishing work for a long time, then coming to its senses and celebrating it. It is time now to celebrate the work of Dr Joseph Kraft MD, a pathologist now in his nineties. Dr Kraft is the author of “Diabetes Epidemic and You” which […]

Schofield’s hormetic theory of wellbeing

I had a few things click into place in the last week or two, around how to conceptualize and manage our well-being, especially considering all the biology involved.
