The Deplorable State of Nutrition Science, Part 1
April 2, 2019
Dr. Richard Feinman is one of the deans of the low-carb movement. He is Professor of Cell Biology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center where he teaches medical students, and is author of "Nutrition in Crisis: Flawed Studies, Misleading Advice, and the Real Science of Human Metabolism." He takes aim at the deplorable state of nutrition science. Especially problematic are epidemiological studies which draw unwarranted inferences about what people should eat. Feinman challenges the “Diet-Heart Hypothesis” which he says has never been substantiated. He is author of an authoritative review supporting carbohydrate restriction as a means of controlling diabetes. His recent work is on ketogenic diets for cancer. Feinman describes the intense resistance his iconoclastic views have met within the nutrition establishment, but believes that low-carb dieting is engendering a paradigm switch.

Clinical Focus: The Plot Against Keto, Part 1
March 14, 2019
“Keto Crotch” became a viral meme in the media and was widely disseminated on social platforms. It’s a repudiation—in very personal terms—of the popular trend toward low-carb and Keto diets. But something’s fishy about Keto Crotch—there are strong indications that it’s part of an organized campaign to impugn the low-carb movement, which is gaining major popular inroads, and is threatening the bottom-lines of powerful commercial interests like Weight Watchers, pasta and bread makers, cereal companies, the beverage industry and other purveyors of carbs. Is there any truth to the claim that low-carb diets imperil feminine hygiene? What’s the evidence for a conspiracy to generate a media buzz via paid “influencers”? And that’s not all: Dubious studies have spawned headlines that suggest low-carb diets cause atrial fibrillation, stoke cravings, and contribute to digestive problems—what’s the truth? Are we being deliberately manipulated? Click HERE for part 2.

Is Your Metabolism Stuck? Part 1
March 12, 2019
Ann Louise Gittleman, author of "Radical Metabolism," explains why people get “stuck” with impaired metabolism. She shares a novel take on the role of the gallbladder in detoxification; impaired gall bladder function—or its removal—hampers a key pathway for optimal metabolism. Ann Louise is a fan of coffee, hibiscus and oolong tea, bone broth, and a concoction she has named “Citrus Blaster”. She has devised a 4-Day Radical Intensive Cleanse and a 21-Day Radical Reboot. She shares her journey from Director of Nutrition of the low-fat, quasi-vegan Pritikin Institute to her current advocacy of low-carb dieting with ample amounts of healthy fat—but issues some cautions about the Paleo and Keto diet paradigms. Artificial sweeteners are out—but certain natural sweeteners have a place in Ann Louise’s paradigm. She shares her top supplements—including glycine, l-glutamine, and astaxanthin.
