New major study: A calorie is not a calorie

New major study: A calorie is not a calorie

Despite what the sugary beverage and processed snack food companies want us to believe, all calories are not created equal. A new study from Harvard shows that individuals following a low-carbohydrate (20% of total calories) diet burn between 209 and 278 more calories at rest (each day) than those on a high-carbohydrate (60% of total calories) diet. So the type of calories we eat really does matter. The New York Times: How a low-carb diet might help you maintain a healthy weight This isn’t the first study to investigate this topic, but it is likely the best. The current study…

A low-carb story with Dr. Campbell Murdoch

One ordinary night, Dr. Cambell Murdoch started thinking about his patients’ high triglycerides and what the reason behind might be.

He spent the rest of the night sleepless and kept thinking how he could change the way he treated his patients. Check out this video to find out what happened next.

Is 2020 the year for real change in the dietary guidelines?

Is 2020 the year for real change in the dietary guidelines?

A new charter for the development of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) in 2020 will mean more diversity and fresh eyes on the committee that advises the Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services on the contents of the dietary guidelines. The Nutrition Coalition, a non-profit dedicated to ensuring that U.S. nutrition policy is based on rigorous scientific evidence, is cautiously optimistic that this might bring meaningful change to the new guidelines, slated for release in about two years. The Nutrition Coalition: USDA to bring more diversity, fresh views to Guidelines committee According to an analysis by The…

Keto news highlights: Cholesterol guidelines, a meat tax and Popfetti

Keto news highlights: Cholesterol guidelines, a meat tax and Popfetti

This week, we summarize the top five news articles and studies in the low-carb realm, plus the wall of shame. The American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, et. al. issued new clinical practice guidelines for the management of blood cholesterol. This revision makes progress; it individualizes care and softens some recommendations surrounding obligatory use of statins for primary prevention. Cardiologist Bret Scher takes a look at the detailed new guidelines and gives us his impressions about what they get right and where there is still room for improvement. Newspaper headlines about the lifesaving potential of a tax on red and processed meat were…

Cooking keto with Dr. Jeffry Gerber

Cooking keto with Dr. Jeffry Gerber

98 viewsDenver’s Diet Doctor, Dr. Jeffry Gerber, confided to me that one of his favorite dishes is Vietnamese Pho, but he can’t enjoy it as a low-carb option because it is served with rice noodles. After a little testing, I decided to create his favorite dish using very thinly sliced cabbage. Although he was hesitant at first, his reaction to the finished dish made me smile. Later he told me, “If I closed my eyes, I wouldn’t know this wasn’t rice noodles!” Watch a part of the video above (transcript). The full video is available (with captions and transcript) with…

Why a tax on red meat is a bad idea

Why a tax on red meat is a bad idea

Last week, we saw headlines suggesting that a global meat tax could save hundreds of thousands of lives and billions of health-care dollars annually. CNBC: Health experts propose a red meat tax to recoup $172 billion in health care-costs Daily Mail: First sugar, now red meat? Taxing beef, lamb and pork “could prevent about 220,000 deaths and save more than £30.7 billion in healthcare costs around the world each year” BBC: Should there be a tax on red meat? The headlines all stem, not from global policymakers’ serious consideration of such a tax, but rather, from a single modeling study…

“Lies my doctor told me” – Dr. Ken Berry

“Lies my doctor told me” – Dr. Ken Berry

2,464 viewsDoes your doctor have an obligation to always stay updated on how to give the best form of care? When Dr. Ken Berry held a presentation at this year’s Low Carb Cruise, he said that licensed doctors, nutritionists and dietitians are lying to their patients if they give them outdated advice that doesn’t work. Ken calls it lying simply because it’s their job to know better. In this presentation, he declares what these lies could be, what we can do to change the current state and much more.

Management of blood cholesterol just got personal

Management of blood cholesterol just got personal

Don’t look now, but the updated clinical practice cholesterol guidelines from the American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association and others are getting personal. Although the guidelines still contain their familiar approach — that I consider too aggressive with drug therapy — the latest 2018 version of the guidelines now includes an impressive update to emphasize lifestyle intervention, plus a more individualized approach for risk assessment. MedPage Today: AHA: Revised Lipid Guide Boosts PCSK9s, Coronary Calcium Scans Could this be the start of a progressive trend away from shotgun statin prescriptions? I sure hope so. Prior guidelines emphasized the…

PCOS and hyperinsulinemia – PCOS 8

PCOS and hyperinsulinemia – PCOS 8

Normal follicular development The most iconic feature of PCOS and what the syndrome is named for – is the presence of the multiple cysts on the ovary. Many women have a few cysts on their ovary, but the sheer number of cysts distinguishes this syndrome from virtually all others. Almost no other human disease causes polycystic ovaries. These cysts develop from a group of cells known as follicles. Normal ovaries are endowed at birth with a finite pool of primordial follicles, which have the potential to develop into a mature egg. Primordial follicles remain quiescent for many years until recruited…
