Default Kris Gunnars debunks myths

Yet again we have scientific evidence to debunk the most egregious nutritional myths which professionals still bombard us with. And thanks to Gunnars for citing several studies for each myth!

Wow, this stuff is pretty much exactly the opposite of what my dietician has been telling me. She told me cheese was the least healthy food next to butter, which she said causes cancer. Looks like I need to do some more reading.

You need a new dietitian, or perhaps none at all. Yours is telling you the standard professional propaganda - we've all heard it from our own medical teams and we know it doesn't work.

When we pay attention to people who actually KNOW like Kris Gunnars and Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, their advice does reduce our blood sugar and results in weight loss.

Your dietitian is telling you what she's been taught, and what she's been taught - like much of what other doctors & medical staff have been taught - is wrong. So don't even try to win the argument as Gunnar suggests - just ignore what they say. When we have to attend these appointments, a lot of us just smile and nod . . . then we go home and eat the low-carb foods high-fat foods that help us instead of harming us.

This was interesting, especially in light of the fact that in a thread yesterday I challenged someone (Can't remember who but I send you my apologies!) on the notion that you gain weight when you don't expend all the calories you are taking in. Still not sure if I accept the claim in this article but happy to read more.

Well TC, you'll never be able to get your mind around it. The only sure way to 'get' it is to try it. We have type 1 members here who are some of our strictest LCHFers. If you can't afford four weeks out of your life to try it, that's your choice. Just sayin' . . .

I'm always amazed that people will read Neal Barnard's vegan crap and subscribe to it heart and soul despite rising blood sugar and weight gain, but let one peep about LCHF, and people run screaming.
