So now those of us who believe in Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) are ‘flat-earthers’ according to the Guardian and top medical experts at Oxford.
I would rather describe us as people who have been let down by Big Pharma and the current dietary guidelines. We are people who are along with the likes of Doctor Aseem Malhotra, Tim Noakes and David Unwin are trying to do something about our health.
If the dietary guidelines about eating starchy carbs and everything in moderation is so correct how come we have an obesity and Type 2 Diabetes epidemic?
In the article I’m referring to from the Guardian in the UK, there is no mention of the recent meta-study of 1.3 million people that concludes there is no link between cholesterol and heart disease. Why not?
The Conclusion of this massive study states:
“The idea that high cholesterol levels in the blood are the main cause of Cardio Vascular Disease is impossible because people with low levels become just as atherosclerotic (having hardened arteries) as people with high levels and their risk of suffering from Cardio Vascular Disease is the same or higher. The cholesterol hypothesis has been kept alive for decades by reviewers who have used misleading statistics, excluded the results from unsuccessful trials and ignored numerous contradictory observations.”
I guess though that those of us who have lost a whole load of weight with a LCHF diet, reversed our conditions and now look and feel healthier are just deluded and we should really just be listening to the “experts” and keep popping all those pills?
Read this biased nonsense…
