Vinnie Tortorich, Fat Emperor & Dr. Jeff Gerber chat on Malibu Beach - part 2 #LCHF

Here in part two we take off the gloves. "Fat burns in the flame of carbohydrates"? You can lose weight by eating lots of pasta? Medical doctors actually get nutritional training? Who the hell makes up this sh"t - has industry got anything to do with the persistent junk-science? :-)

Vinnie Tortorich, Fat Emperor & Dr. Jeff Gerber chat on Malibu Beach - part 1 #LCHF

Heeere's Vinnie!

Had breakfast with Vinnie Tortorich and the lovely Serena Scott-Thomas in LA recently. Afterwards we dropped in to Malibu Beach to capture some shenanigans. In part one we get a brief history of Vinnie's troublemaking for the Sugar and Grain industries. We muse on the Diabesity crisis, and wonder how it all went so badly wrong!

Dr. Jason Fung and Fat Emperor explore fasting and diabesity - Part 2

Jason doesn't put too fine a point on things, and rightly so - we are living through a public health absurdity, and millions are suffering. Here in part two, we delve deep into the power of fasting. It can quickly resolve fatty liver and T2 diabetes - why aren't people being told we wonder? Jason gets into his stride here, appropriately outraged by the absurdity!

Dr. Joseph R. Kraft - Stories from the World War II Era - Part 1

On my recent US trip I had the privilege of meeting with Dr. Kraft once more. Father of the Insulin Assay, and one of the most under-recognised greats of medicine and science. Here at aged 95 he talks of old times, relating experiences from World War 2. He was a Medical Captain there, serving mainly in Panama.

He has walked the walk. And he certainly can talk the talk. So how do our modern internet medical gurus compare? What extraordinary history can they relate? What important discoveries have THEY made? Quite.

So please do sit with myself and Dr. Kraft for just a short while. And FEEL the history.

Dr. Jason Fung and Fat Emperor - 'The Fad of Fasting' - Part 1

Dr. Jason Fung gave another great talk at Low Carb USA San Diego. Got to catch up for a chat on camera too. Jason is trying to resurrect for us the superb practice of fasting - the benefits of which have been recognised by ALL of the world's religions for millennia. And rightly so - for metabolic health, neurological health, and to stave off many forms of disease - fasting is one of the best things you can...'indulge in'. I do it all the time - to keep an edge! Here in part one, he introduces the basics. Share this to help counteract our ridiculous 'feed every three hours' corporate culture...!

WARNING: SALTY LANGUAGE. Those 2 Keto Dudes and Fat Emperor - on Diabetes & KRAFT

Hope you enjoy this podcast on the utter Kraziness of Type 2 Diabetes - and how it could be identified / decimated....decades before those feet have to come off :-(

The following hyperlink has my bit of scientific/engineering outrage expressed reasonably articulately:

Angela Poff PhD and Fat Emperor discuss: #Cancer and Ketogenic Diets #LCHF #Keto

I really enjoyed Angela Poff's informative talk at Low Carb USA San Diego. I then had the privilege of sitting with her for this short discussion. Anglea has been working with Dominic D'Agostino on the interactions between ketogenic diets and cancer metabolism. Here she covers many key points in this exciting arena !  More details of the superb conference last weekend are at www.lowcarbusa.org - get with the low carb revolution... :-)

My interview with the famed cancer researcher Dominic D'Agostino at Low Carb USA is below - Angela works with Dominic to help the next generation grapple more successfully with the modern scourge of cancer - we should support them in any way possible:

Want to know if Type 2 #Diabetes is in your future? Okay then. (part 2)

Another fascinating paper on Insulin Resistance measures from Dr. Tommy Wood & http://icelandichealthsymposium.is/foodloose/. The Swedish guys who did this recent study used an exotic lab measurement of IR (euglycemic insulin clamp), as an alternative to simpler Kraft patterns. They called their algorithm 'CEDER'. They had followed 1049 non-diabetic peeps for >9 years, to see how the CEDER Insulin Resistance level would predict diabetes - and CHD. Here's the incidence rate that occurred for the different CEDER IR levels from 1 to 9. Bottom line: a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes should never come as a surprise (my graphics added):

2016 Diabetes CEDER Paper.JPG

Unsurprisingly the Coronary Heart Disease plods along in the diabetic wake. With HR's that yet again make an utter joke of the 'cholesterol' metrics. And remember that these guys were only measured for insulin resistance up front in the study - many of the low IR guys would have developed IR over the years, introducing noise into the picture. Which only goes to make the results even more stunning.

 A diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes should never come as a surprise - nor should the massive heart disease that comes with it.

My earlier post on this diabetic debacle:  http://www.thefatemperor.com/blog/2016/8/6/want-to-know-if-type-2-diabetes-is-in-your-future-ok-then Also, Kraft details discussion here:

 

You can also see the best way to fix the curse of Hyperinsulinemia/Insulin Resistance here:

Kraft killed this nasty hyperinsulinemia/diabetes response rather effectively. He applied LCHF for starters - all the way back in 1972 !! Dr. Joseph R Kraft - a hero without the recognition...

And lookee here at what Prof Gerald Reaven saw, when he used a similar method of IR measurement. Right - it's in here:

http://www.thefatemperor.com/blog/2015/4/30/insulin-resistance-the-primary-cause-of-coronary-artery-disease-bar-none-lchf?rq=insulin%20resistance

And Dr. Jeff Gerber MD / Amy Savigian MD (with a little help from myself) have generated a poster, to expose some of the absurdity - see here:  http://denversdietdoctor.com/challenging-traditional-cardiovascular-risk-assessment/

Why run after 'cholesterol' in ever-decreasing circles, when there are genuinely accurate measures of risk available? When the elephant is in the goddamn room, and staring you in the face? Why indeed.

Part 2 on CAC Scoring and Diabesity causes now available below:

Repeat after me: Calcification Score blows away 'Risk Factors'. Always.

The title says it all - and this study outcome chart. Remember this is all-cause mortality. Not just the cardiac stuff. This is life or death peeps. (RF='Risk Factor' - whether you have none, 1, 2 or 3+ of these, calcium will decide whether they matter):

Here's another view:

Here's yet another study outcome below. There's loads of these available to those who want to look. And they all say the same thing. So how the hell is CAC not used everywhere? I guess they must prefer the muddy statistical noise of their precious 'risk factors'. I guess they must like playing 'risk factor bingo' - with patients lives. Calcium isn't a 'risk factor' - it sees the disease process itself:

So do you wanna play 'risk factor bingo' ?? Be my guest. But you'd better know how to triangulate all those RF's in a seriously expert fashion - engineering-style. And only a tiny number of people can do that. For everyone else there's CAC.  http://circimaging.ahajournals.org/content/5/4/467.full.pdf+html

And what if you don't get a zero CAC score, and are facing a premature visit from the reaper? Don't sweat it - take some action instead. Hit the root causes and you'll likely be ok again. And remember, we ain't just talking heart disease that you'll be averting. We're talking ALL-CAUSE stuff (well, except automobile accidents and the like). You'll be averting Cancer. Diabetes. Alzheimer's. And the rest. Here's a primer:

RD Dikeman and Fat Emperor wonder at the Type 1 Diabetes Disgrace...

Shocking content and powerful delivery in RD Dikeman's talk at Low Carb USA San Diego last week. Myself and Dr. Jeff snagged him to talk a little on it. RD set up and leads the fantastic TYPEONEGRIT facebook group, and also produced many video discussions with the great Dr. Bernstein. More details of the superb conference are at www.lowcarbusa.org. Get with the low carb revolution...especially for Type 1 Diabetics ! :-)

Priyanka Wali MD and Fat Emperor discuss saving the world - with LCHF !

The second discussion from Low Carb USA San Diego is with the articulate and assertive young doctor Priyanka Wali. Not long practising, but already she knows a lot more than most docs about nutrition and disease. Did she go to a special med school you may ask, where they actually teach nutrition? Why no - she had to do her own research, just like the rest of us! In any case she's the smartest doc on the block, and shouldn't need to hand out meds like candy... :-)

Want to know if Type 2 Diabetes is in your future? Ok then.

Interesting paper this afternoon on Patterns of Insulin response during an OGTT (Oral Glucose Tolerance Test). These guys are using slightly different criteria than Kraft. Of course it's a disgrace that they don't reference Kraft (for whatever reason). They followed the 400 non-diabetic peeps for 10-11 years to see how the patterns predicted who would go down. Here's the incidence rate that occurred for the different patterns seen up front. Bottom line: a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes should never come as a surprise (my graphics added):

Of course the bad patterns didn't as such predict diabetes. THEY ALREADY WERE DIABETES. Kraft was correct. Diabetes is diagnosed disgracefully late. There is no such thing as 'pre-diabetes'. With the Kraft test you are either diabetic or not - decades before you are finally diagnosed with the rubbishy glucose metrics. And millions of the diabetics will die of heart attacks...without ever getting their diabetes diagnosis. Just as Kraft asserted. What an absolute tragedy - the ADA should be utterly ashamed of themselves. If you want to know how it works, you won't do better than this video interview with the great man himself:

How did Kraft kill this nasty hyperinsulinemia/diabetes response? Well, he just applied LCHF - all the way back in 1972 !! Dr. Joseph R Kraft - a hero without the recognition...
