Weight loss

Do men lose more weight than women on low-carb diets?

MD and I just got back from Low-Carb Denver 2020 where I made a presentation that will ultimately make its way to YouTube.  Preparing for the presentation occupied most of my time before the meeting–I’m a chronic slide-making procrastinator–so I abandoned blogging for  a bit. Fortunately, the organizers put me on just about first on…

Can your food make you fit?

A paper recently appeared in the scientific literature demonstrating an enormous and previously unknown benefit of low-carbohydrate dieting. (1) I haven’t seen this study mentioned anywhere, so, important though it is, it seems to have flown under the radar of all the low-carb experts and the press. It is a study about how restricting carbohydrates…

Mitochondria rejuvenating diet the nutritional ‘experts’ bash

The subtitle of this post could just as easily have been: Feed your mitochondria right. The two videos below pretty much tell the whole sad tale of doctors and nutrition.  Taken together, they confirm the widespread notion that doctors, in general, know very little about nutrition and seem to be proud to keep it that…

Taste Like Green French Fries?

Heading into 2012 means shedding a few holiday pounds that Mike and I accumulated on the “experiment” (see his blog) we undertook. So for the next several weeks we will be trudging down the nutritional holy road of near-abstinence from carbs and total abstinence from that carbohydrate gateway drug, alcohol. It’s only day 5 and…

The best low-carb book in print

I’m going to tell you about the best low-carb book I’ve ever read. In fact, it’s exactly the book I wish I had written myself.  And I’ll tell you why I didn’t in a bit, but first I want to clear up a few misconceptions I may have spread in my last post. I get…

Resolving to diet in 2012

The first week of January is the traditional time for overweight people to start a diet.  For years I’ve told my patients (and anyone else who would listen) to fight the holiday eat-a-thon and start the new year at the same weight they started the month of November.  During the time between Thanksgiving and the…

Tips & tricks for starting (or restarting) low-carb Pt II

In the last post we discussed ramping up the fat intake as the single best way to hurry the low-carb or keto adaptation along.  I didn’t mention it in the previous post, but another little secret is to keep an eye on the protein intake. Too much protein will prevent the shift into ketoses because…

Tips & tricks for starting (or restarting) low-carb Pt I

As anyone who has done it knows, getting started on a low-carb diet can be a little rough.  Not for everyone, but for some.  All too often these little front-end bumps in the road–coupled with the spirit of the times in which the well-intentioned but ignorant friends and relatives of low-carb dieters tell them their…

Metabosol

A little over two years ago I wrote a post on Pentabosol, a weight-loss supplement we and our research partner developed and made available for a number of years.  In that post I mentioned that MD and I were contemplating actively marketing Pentabosol again.  We reformulated the product and changed its name to Metabosol, but…

On the Wagon? Try a Cham-plain Mocktail

About once a quarter, Mike and I commit to a little ‘liver rest’ by going on the wagon for a week or so. As we wrote in The 6-Week Cure, alcohol is a delicious poison that must be detoxified by the liver, which adds to its work burden. In excess, of course, alcohol, can lead…
