Keto boom means more options and more temptation

 
Image/photo
According to CNN Money, keto is booming. We see it with keto’s popularity on social media. And with it’s dominance with Google searches. This helps spread the word, and ultimately brings better health to many more people, so this is good news.

The interest in keto is commercial, too. As a result, there are many more products available to help make carb restriction easier. Things like high fat, artificially sweetened treats and “meal in a bottle” shakes, too. Keto eaters have more options, which is great. But sometimes these easy options are not the best choice.

Sticking with real, whole food is almost always the best choice. Real food snacks are going to be a better choice than a packaged product. Real food keto meals are going to be a better choice than a meal replacement product.

We get it — sometimes convenience matters. Enjoy the packaged keto options when needed, preferably in moderation. But when you can, stick with whole foods.

Yogurt: A sugar trap!…or a healthy choice?

 
Image/photo
We are often told that yogurt is healthy, filled with probiotics, vitamins and minerals. But what kind of yogurt are we talking about? In a new study, we get full disclosure of what the various types of yogurt in the grocery store actually contain.

BBC: Yoghurts (even organic ones) ‘full of sugar’

The Times: ‘Healthy’ organic yoghurts are packed full of sugar

ABC News: Yogurt: A good source of vitamins, minerals…and sugar

After studying nearly 900 kinds of yogurt in the UK, the researchers found that an alarming number of brands were really high in sugar. Yogurt desserts contained the most sugar — an average of 16.4 g per 100 g. One might be fooled by a yogurt labelled organic, but the research actually found that organic yogurts were among the most sugary – containing more sugar per 100 g than cola.

The only yogurt that had an acceptable amount of sugar, with under 5 g per 100 g, is plain Greek yogurt, which also contains more protein.

Yogurt is healthy for most people, but instead of choosing a sugary one, look for plain Greek yogurt or check the label closely to make sure sugar is under 5 g per 100 g. That way, rather than buying yogurt with added sugars, you can enjoy a natural full-fat yogurt and add delicious toppings yourself! Why not add some fresh strawberries and how about some homemade granola to add that extra crunchiness? Check out the recipe below and enjoy your full-fat yogurt!

“Keto Krew” at Texas grocer works together to drop 200 pounds

 
Image/photo
The “Keto Krew” at a Sprouts grocery store in greater Houston is leading by example. This spontaneously-formed group of five employees has collectively lost 200 pounds, all by following a ketogenic diet.
They have dropped pants sizes and gained endless energy, by cheering each other on, sharing recipes and finding new keto-friendly products in the store, they said.

Even the customers are catching on.
“When I have [customers] asking for certain [keto] information, I can say, ‘Let me take you to the star of the building,’ and take them to Farley or take them to Ana, ‘the keto queen,'” Glidden said. “It’s nice to work for a company that supports healthier decisions and [a healthier] lifestyle, and is working hard to provide even more support.”

In spite of all the fabulous results experienced by the Keto Krew, the registered dietician interviewed at the end of the ABC News article offered perfunctory cautions about lipid profiles, even characterizing a keto diet as unsustainable. But we know keto often improves heart disease risk markers, and have shared hundreds of success stories that demonstrate a long-term commitment is not only possible, but embraced by many who transform themselves with keto.

A workplace is a great place for keto to take off. It is hard not to notice when a coworker is losing weight and gaining energy. Others jump on board, and colleagues can offer one another support — encouragement, tips and recipes. Can you spread the word at yours? Feel free to share our beginners’ guide with those interested in giving keto a try!

The 2-week keto challenge: “I’m amazed at how satisfied I feel”

 
Image/photo

Over 580,000 people have signed up for our free two-week keto low-carb challenge. You’ll get free guidance, meal plans, recipes, shopping lists and troubleshooting tips – everything you need to succeed on a keto diet.
Here are new fantastic stories from people who’ve taken the challenge:

Feedback

I have just completed the 2-week challenge. I’ve lost 10 lbs (4.5 kg). I was very surprised I wasn’t hungry at all. In fact, I sometimes didn’t eat three meals because of being full. I’m a 72-year young senior who doesn’t like to cook but the recipes were easy and fast to prepare. I am planning to continue the LCHF food plan.

Thank you,
Pam

I loved the shopping list, as a single mom, this made life so much easier!

I loved the 14-day challenge! The recipes were simple, fast and delicious! I loved the shopping list, as a single mom, this made life so much easier! I am from Quebec in Canada, I am 42 years old. I was eating keto for one1 week before the challenge and it is safe to say that in the three weeks on Keto I’ve lost 5-7 lbs (2-3kg)!

I stopped retaining water in my feet and hands, the bloating in my guts have reduced if not disappeared, and I have little to no intestinal pain after I eat. I will continue the Keto lifestyle and I am looking forward to discovering more benefits and general well being! I saw The magic pill this weekend, and I am amazed at the results in children who follow the diet. I will be gradually introducing my kids to this way of eating as well.

Thanks for the opportunity to try this diet, simplified, and free! I greatly appreciate the work put into this!

Hi,

My name is Fred, I’m 29 and I reside in London, UK. I thought the low carb challenge was actually easier than I initially thought. I’m a carb eater, hence me stating this challenge, so I struggled in the beginning with having no bread with my eggs, for example. But with time, it became easier! I was also able to eat certain foods that I love, which I previously had to stop due to advice that it would make me fatter, for example cheese!

At the end of the challenge, I lost 5 kg (10 lbs) (I understand that it may be water), but I feel happier than ever and I finally found a “diet” which works for me!

I will definitely carry on with Keto and make it a lifestyle change rather than a diet!

Thank you,
Fred
I’ve been very impressed with this low-carb challenge. It seems that at this stage of life, my weight is constantly going higher than I want it to go. I’ve tried many diets over the years and the ones that I used in my youth (calorie counting) are no longer effective.

This diet has been the most effective and reasonable, and I’ve been amazed at how satisfied I feel. Because bread is one of my joys in life, I made the Soft keto seed bread and enjoy a slice each day. I love the idea of making a double-sized recipe the night before and then using it for lunch the next day. It works well!

Hello,


These two weeks have been the most amazing weeks in my weight-loss journey.

I am writing to thank you guys so much. These two weeks have been the most amazing weeks in my weight-loss journey. I have tried several diets but none of them have I liked like this one. In the very first week, I lost 3 kg (7 lbs), I was very busy so I didn’t manage to weigh myself at the end of the second week.

I enjoyed every bit of it, and my husband too. Usually, I struggle with feeling hungry all the time, and my hunger used to be very aggressive. However, being on this low-carb diet I was not feeling so hungry like before. I was able to do intermittent fasting 16/8 because I was not hungry for breakfast.

I am definitely going to continue with this diet. My current weight is 91 kg (200 lbs) and my goal is 75-70 kg (165-154 lbs). I can’t wait to share it with my friends and family.

Keto news highlights: Teicholz, PURE and Kerrygold

 
Image/photo
This week, we summarize the top five news articles and studies in the low-carb realm, plus some success stories.
  • The Wall Street Journal runs an op-ed entitled “Carbs, Good for You? Fat Chance!” by NYT bestselling author Nina Teicholz on the harm done by the recent observational study published in Lancet Public Health (and the misleading headlines that followed). She writes, “defenders of the nutrition status quo continue to mislead the public and put Americans’ health at risk.” For a longer, fully referenced piece, check out Teicholz’s Medscape article.
  • More PURE results, this time on whole fat dairy foods, are published this week in The Lancet. This observational data shows better health outcomes for those who ate more full-fat dairy. Both The New York Times and Newsweek summarize the questions raised by the study. The American Heart Association’s dogmatic response is captured in MedPage: “Currently with the evidence that we have reviewed, we still believe that you should try to limit your saturated fat including fat that is coming from dairy products.” #WillfulBlindness
  • The Guardian reports that Britain’s NHS will begin a staged rollout of a trial prescribing a very low-calorie liquid diet to reverse diabetes. While it is terrific to see physicians and health systems treating type 2 diabetes as a reversible condition rather than a progressive chronic disease, remission with this approach is highly dependent on maintaining weight loss. Over the long term, maintaining weight loss by restricting calories has a very poor track record indeed. What makes more sense for reversing type 2 diabetes? Carbohydrate restriction.
  • A new study, published in Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology, reviewed data from over a million individuals and concluded that LDL does not cause heart disease. This is in direct contradiction to a recent publication of the European Society of Cardiology stating that elevated LDL does directly cause heart disease.  Who is correct, and how do we know what is best for our long-term health? Cardiologist Bret Scher unpacks this controversy.
  • Doctors Robert Lustig and Peter Attia dig into the details of the problems with sugar (well, fructose) in this ~80 min podcast (it flies by). Lustig makes the case for minimizing ultra-processed and packaged products in favor of eating real, whole foods; he schools parents to avoid “anything with a label.”

Want more?


Will Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) benefit non-diabetic users? Are Americans cooking at home more? Is it time for doctors and scientist to be upfront about their ties to industry and potential conflicts of interest? Did the Inuit, who ate almost no plants, have near perfect teeth? Will technology eventually help make real food easier? Maybe — check out Farmers Fridge, putting smart, refrigerated vending machines with whole food meals at convenient locations in Illinois and Milwaukee.
  • Actress Kate Beckinsale, 45, maintains her lean look and glowing skin by eating fewer carbs and plenty of natural fats. She even travels with a supply of Kerrygold butter!
  • Deputy leader of Britain’s Labour Party, Tom Watson, makes a splash with his almost 100 pound weight loss and reversal of his type 2 diabetes diagnosis. He is committed to bringing his success with a low-carb approach to the attention of both policy makers and everyday citizens.
  • Nate, a Virta Health patient, goes from hopelessness to lasting success. He’s down 70 pounds, and off blood pressure meds.  After 15+ years on insulin, his keto diet has lowered his A1c from 8.3% with insulin to 6.9% without it!
  • Lovely, 50ish mother-of-the-bride reverses prediabetes and loses 65 pounds; she is still seeing improvements, 3 years in. Her health, and her husband’s health, have been transformed by Virta Health.
  • Suzie, a physician in the UK, goes from (whole grain breakfast cereals + skimmed milk + low-fat yogurt + bananas + lots of running) to (meat + veg)… and she is looking lean and ready to fight grains and the low-fat diet that failed her.
Tune in next week!

Is low-carb the best treatment for reversing diabetes?

 
Image/photo
The diabetes diet debate has shifted, and the result could save millions of people.

The question used to be, is a low-carb high-fat diet dangerous? Is it going to kill us?

Now the question has become, is a low-carb high-fat diet the best first-line treatment for reversing diabetes in millions of people?

According to a recent article in inews.co.uk, the answer is probably: Yes. That’s an impressive evolution.

The article referenced a review study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition from July 2018. The authors reviewed 36 studies that measured HgbA1c (a marker of your average three-month blood sugar level) in response to the percentage of carbohydrates vs fats consumed. They defined low carbohydrate diets as

Here’s the amazing part. Even with 40% carbs, even though the difference was small and tended to decrease over time, the low carb diets showed better efficacy than low-fat diets for reducing HgbA1c. To be honest, this was a fairly low-quality study with unimpressive results. Yet the take away for many was the same. Low carb works for improving diabetes.

While I agree that low carb diets should be first line interventions for those with diabetes, I do not believe this is the best trial to show that. Far better, in my opinion, are the 10-week and 1-year trial data from Dr. Hallberg and Virta Health. Their very low (

So, while we should appreciate The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study, we also have to interpret it in light of the available evidence. Lower quality observational evidence is conflicting and is fraught with confounding variables, methodological problems, and the inability to prove causation.

Instead, we should be focusing on the higher quality intervention studies, such as that from Virta Health, to help guide us. This is the science that supports low-carb diets being the first-line treatment for individuals with diabetes. The time has come to change the paradigm for treating diabetes and science is showing us the way.

Middle-aged men dig into the science behind low carb

 
Image/photo
Why are middle-aged men in Britain dieting more? The Guardian reports that it may be more about health than vanity. And it’s about the style of the diets, too.

A type 2 diabetes diagnosis or fear of heart disease can be a powerful motivator for men who may not care that much about how they look. Keeping up with active kids is another common stimulus. And of course, in our Instagram-ready society, there is some pressure for midlife men to look their best, too.

For many men, a low-carb diet is the approach of choice. It is not just the delicious steaks and chops. The grounding of the diet in compelling science is reportedly particularly important to men.

Dr. Matthew Hall, a professor and editor of the Journal of Gender Studies explains:
[M]en can be more open about dieting when they follow regimes linked to specific scientific research because it is seen as more masculine. As a rule of thumb, dieting is coded as a more feminine activity. If men participate in feminine activities, they need to frame it in a way that gives them permission to do it. Scientific markers tend to be coded as male. Men may also take pride in excelling at the technical challenges of dieting – the precision and monitoring involved – and see it as a sporting endeavour…

Plus, there has been plenty of inspiration, as high profile men speak out about their success with lifestyle regimes like low carb and intermittent fasting. The deputy leader of Britain’s Labour Party, Tom Watson, made headlines last week with his success reversing type 2 diabetes and losing nearly 100 pounds, all with a real food, low-carb approach. Several celebrity chefs have also gone public with their success stories. And physician and bestselling author Dr. Michael Mosley has been on the scene, speaking his mind and selling millions of books explaining the science behind the effectiveness of low-carb food and intermittent fasting.

We think everyone, not just men of a certain age, can be inspired by the logic of a low-carb approach. For more on the why low carb works, check out our guide, The science of low carb.

Fat: The Documentary – official trailer

 
“People say believe half of what you see, son, and none of what you hear.” Marvin Gaye, I Heard it Through the Grapevine
I love that song lyric. Even though it is rather pessimistic of what we can believe from others, it has always stuck with me. This quote rings true when it comes to filtering all the information from books and documentaries about food, our health and the environment. What speaks louder to you – a book or a movie? In today’s society, it seems like movies carry much more weight. We can debate how that signals the decline of civilization, but I’m not writing about that today!

Over the past few years, we have seen a series of vegan-based documentaries garner quite a bit of attention. While they usually have a segment of truth (factory farming can be cruel and a tremendous pollutant), they also frequently promote blatant mistruths (eating an egg is the same as smoking seven cigarettes). It is hard to separate decent science from biased propaganda. How is the general public supposed to know the difference?

That is a complicated question. Fortunately we are on the verge of seeing a series of documentaries from a different perspective. Diana Rodgers is working on “Kale vs. Cow” to highlight how meat is an important component for our health and how raising cattle properly can benefit our environment. Brian Sanders is working on “Food Lies” to help uncover the many mistruths we have been told about food, our health and the environment.

And now we have the release of the trailer for Vinnie Tortorich’s “Fat: The Documentary.” I got chills watching it. Not just because I was fortunate enough to be included, but because it shows the power of a Hollywood level production aimed at telling the truth. There have been numerous books written about the misinformation surrounding fat, but I feel none will be as powerful as a well-produced, truthful documentary film.

I look forward to the film’s release with great anticipation. I have hope that we can turn the tide of overly biased and blatantly false documentaries meant to scare us into a certain way of living. Instead, I welcome the coming series of films that should present a clearer picture of how food impacts our health and our environment.

We all have our biases. That is human nature. But that shouldn’t keep us from producing and continually searching for objective and helpful information sources.

I’d say pass the popcorn, but you know, it’s popcorn.

How Cindy lost 80 pounds on keto, and helped transform the health of her family

 
11 views

Cindy Miller shares her health journey in this interview. Here’s her story:
I am a RN who comes from an obese family. Loving family, smart family. Obese family. Two years ago my sister sent me the Dr. Hallberg’s TED talk on type 2 diabetes.

That started our journey. As a family, we are down almost 800 lbs (363 kg). I am down 70 lbs (32 kg). My 83 and 84-year-old parents down total 80 lbs (36). My daughter with type 1 diabetes 40 lbs (18 kg) and her basal rate way down on her pump (plus she successfully delivered her first child three months ago).

My life has been radically transformed to the point where I started a Facebook page. I am surprised to say it has grown beyond my expectations (Ask Nurse Cindy) to 43K followers. And I still have a full-time career at a large wound-care company.

I refer SO many of my followers to dietdoctor.com. I talk about you ALL the time.

Smiles,
Cindy

Oh, this would be such a blessing to help you share hope and healing via a short video.


Transcript


Cindy Miller: I used to wake up four to five days a week for such a severe headache. I would wake up and my head could be drawn back in such a pounding headache that before I woke up, I knew it was going to be a bad one.

I started following a low-carb lifestyle when my sister Debbie Stokes sent me the doctor Sarah Hallberg TED talk where she talks about what if we’ve been treating type 2 diabetes wrong.

First I thought it was just going to be a diet, something short, something as a stopgap, but what I found was it does much more than help you lose weight.

Expand full transcript

It’s a metabolic rearrangement and an internal healing process I’ve been going through.

If we think about that type 2 diabetes is a carbohydrate intolerance, much like peanut allergies, peanut intolerance, isn’t it logical that we can reduce our carbohydrates therefore reduce the need for meds? Because we can treat a blood sugar, but we’re not treating the disease.

We’ve seen so much hope for people with infertility problems, so much hope just in the low-carb community for people when you regulate your carbs and you increase your fats, hormone production is normalized. And when you can optimize that, so many other things fall into place.

When you become a fat burner, it was like someone turned on the lights and I was like, “Ah, I feel amazing!” And I wasn’t hungry and I wasn’t irritable and I felt focused. And it was just the first epiphany of many of this to your journey. This was me before low-carb. So I was probably a little bit heavier there and I thought I looked cute.

They see me at the educational event and they’re like, “Huh!” or they walk by me and they don’t recognize me. And they’ll be like, “What are you doing?” Because I think one of the loudest voices that we can have is to just live the lifestyle and let them see the changes.
I think if anyone out there who is listening to this at any point in time, in any remote way has struggled like that, the only way I can explain this is I’ve been set free. And I thought, “I won’t ever go back into that bondage again. I won’t do it.”
