One day sale of low-carb/keto books

  Just a quick post to let you know of a one-day sale of low-carb/ketogenic diet books for $3 each. I haven’t read any of the books on this list except for Dr. Richard Feinman’s The World Turned Upside Down: The Second Low-Carb Revolution, which is excellent.  Highly recommended, especially if you are at all…

Great book on ketogenic diet for 99¢

  Just a quick note to give everyone a heads up that the Kindle version of Ash Simmonds’ book Principia Ketogenica is on sale at Amazon.com for a mere 99 cents.  Grab a copy quickly because I don’t know how long this price will last. I purchased the Kindle version as soon as I was alerted…

Dr. Dean Ornish blasts high-protein diets

  Dr. Dean Ornish strikes again with an editorial lambasting what he calls high-protein diets in today’s New York Times. I got an email first thing this morning from a South African journalist inquiring as to what I thought about it. Monday mornings are killers for me, so I thought I would jot off a…

Catching up

First of all, I would like to — belatedly — wish everyone a happy new year. I hope everyone has a safe, prosperous, healthful 2015. This post is going to be a grab bag of subjects because I’m going to be catching up on a lot of stuff. You can read through it all or…

Low carb diet: Fat or fiction

  Last year I put up a couple of posts of Australian TV shows kicking sand in the face of mainstream nutritional and medical practices. The first debunked the idea that saturated fat and cholesterol are bad for your health and included and interview with yours truly. The second, which really got the mainstream docs…

The Cholesterol Myths

  Danish physician, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, has for years been at the forefront of the movement to de-demonize cholesterol. Not only has he written three popular books on the subject, he has published over a hundred articles in the medical and scientific literature and spoken at academic conferences the world over. In addition, he founded…

Do we get fat because we eat too much? Some think so.

  First and foremost, MD and I would like to thank each and everyone one of you who provided suggestions and recommendations for an updated version of Protein Power. Based on all your comments, it appears it will be more of a rewrite than an update, which creates problems with the publisher. I’ll elaborate in…

Protein Power 2.0?

  It is difficult for me to believe, but Protein Power is coming up on being 20 years old. It was written in 1995 and published in January of 1996. There has been some talk between our agent and the publisher about a 20 year anniversary edition of the book. MD and I have decided…

The Big Fat Surprise

  This review of The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz is the most difficult and demanding I have ever written. It is demanding for a couple of reasons. First, it is psychologically demanding on me because I want to write a review so good it inspires everyone to buy the book immediately and read…

Beware the confirmation bias

  Recently, while alone and unsupervised, I allowed myself to be goaded into an ill-advised Twitter debate. With someone who calls himself Ducks Dodger, no less. (For those of you who didn’t see it, you can go to my Twitter account, scroll back to April 8-9 and check out this tar baby I got caught…
