The Battle of the Diets: Is Anyone Winning (At Losing?)

4 comments:

  1. At 39 minutes & 35 seconds in, Christopher Gardner explains how Insulin Resistant people do better on LCHF than HCLF, but Insulin Sensitive people do worse on LCHF than HCLF.

    Bearing in mind that being Insulin Sensitive is a sign of Good Health, is this not a clear message that people should be striving for a state of High Insulin Sensitivity in order to achieve Low Fasting Insulin, and eating a HCLF diet?

  2. Metabolic syndrome is a big US health problem. LCHF diet seems best for them. The fatter a patient is the more likely they have insulin resistance. However 1 in 5 people with metabolic syndrome are not fat?

  4. Gardner's ATOZ and Sachs Comparative Diet trial settle the point that all diets cause weight loss when followed. They do not address long term weight loss maintenance. LOOK AHEAD trial showed the slow regain of weight under the best of circumstances. http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1212914 Despite Gardner and Sachs trials giving legitimacy to #LCHF diets the AHA continues to push low saturated fat diets despite the fact that "Without doubt, the effects of stearic acid are more favorable than those of trans monounsaturated FA" http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16477803 My main question is The CIMT CHALLENGE. If you think you are on a healthy diet, check your CIMT.
