Conquering the Skinny Picky

At my low-carb/keto clinic, when nurse Sylvie and I teach patients to open their minds to new culinary possibilities with low carb food, we often have to make them shift their focus from “everything they won’t be able to eat anymoreʺ to “all the new possibilities you never knew existed for youʺ.
Most patients, eventually, come around to discovering how delicious low-carb food can taste. Still, it is a struggle for many of them. And they are adults.
Kids, however, can give bring the word ʺstruggleʺ to a whole new level when it comes to food. If you’re the parent of a picky eater, you know what I’m talking about. If you’re the parent of a picky eater who has known the pre-LCHF era, you KNOW what I’m talking about. Continue Reading →

Medications That Actually Work for Type 2 Diabetes

As we saw in our previous post, standard diabetes medications such as insulin, sulphonylureas, metformin and DPP4’s can reduce blood glucose but do not reduce cardiovascular disease or death. Yes, your sugars will be lower, but no, you will not be healthier.
Whether you take the medications or not, you will suffer the same risk of kidney disease, heart disease, stroke and death. So why take these medications at all? Well, that is a good question, for which I do not have a good answer. Continue Reading →

The Reason Why Quitting Sugar Is Hard

Is it possible to lose weight without starvation? FREE Download: Ketogenic Diet Book » KetoVIP.

It’s much easier to stay away from sugar all together, rather than attempting to consume it “in moderation”, according to Gary Taubes.
But why? And what can you do to increase your chance of successfully staying free of sugar? That’s what the science writer explores in his latest article in The New York Times:

Elevate insulin levels even a little, says Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric endocrinologist at the University of California, San Francisco, and the body switches over from burning fat for fuel to burning carbohydrates, by necessity.
“The more insulin you release, the more you crave carbs,” he said. “Once you’re exposed to a little carbohydrate, and you get an insulin rise from it, that forces energy into fat cells and that deprives your other cells of the energy they would otherwise have utilized — in essence, starvation. So you compensate by getting hungry, particularly for more carbohydrate. High insulin drives carb-craving.”

Why do we get fat – and what can we do about it? Conventional wisdom tells us that it’s all about eating less and running more. The problem is that this seldom works well.Science journalist Gary Taubes has spent more than a decade on finding a better answer. His book Good Calories, Bad Calories (2007) became very influential and changed many people’s view on this.
In this talk Taubes discusses his controversial theories and the criticism. Why do we get fat? Why do we overeat and what regulates fat accumulation?
Watch a new part of the presentation above, where Taubes explains why it’s pointless to state that weight gain is caused by taking in more calories than one expends (transcript). The full video is available (with captions and transcript) with a free trial or membership:

Ruining the World, One Drink at a Time

“You ruined it for me!” The whiny voice on the phone was my husband who was driving home from work. “You ruined it.”
I wasn’t about to apologize until I knew what I’d done, so a little unsympathetically, I asked, “Ruined what?”
“My Pepsi. I waited all week to have one, just one. Well… I thought about it all day and I’d had it in the fridge at work and about 3:00 pm I went to get it. I’d been thinking about it all day and couldn’t wait to enjoy it. You know I love Pepsi, right? You know I’ve ALWAYS loved Pepsi!”
Yes, we had wanted it served at our wedding reception because he did love some Pepsi. When we were dating, I always had some in the fridge for when he visited. After we married, I’d stock up when soft drinks were on sale. In fact, I learned that soft drink sales were cyclical. I’d stock up at all of the major holidays — Super Bowl, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. Apparently…
