LCHF Seminar now on YouTube!

In October we had planned a seminar on the Low Carb High Fat approach, which was so well received that we decided to hold another one only two weeks later. Many of you have already asked for the video for those who couldn’t attend or would like to watch it again. And here it is: 

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. That’s prompted quite a few questions about how some people can eat carbs and not get sick.   Here are a few of these questions: “Why are some people and populations fine on higher carb diets?”   “Why are you promoting a higher fat lower carb approach given many people (and sometimes populations) exist disease free eating higher carb diets?” “Why do I put on weight so… Read More

The structure of great communication

This is a great TED talk by presentation guru Nancy Duarte. Her ideas about speaking are what you get given when you are invited to do a TED talk.

Be the best you can be

(pic: the entrance to AUT Millenium where I work) I’ve wanted to start a blog for quite some time now. The trick is to get the technical skills together well enough to actually know how to run one and do it regularly. Well, I’m just about there. What will I blog about?

The cornerstones are nutrition, exercise, sleep, neuroscience, psychology and well-being. I’ll… Read More
