July 2016: Dr. Michael Eades and Fat Emperor talk LCHF Evidence - and Veg Oils...! Really enjoyed Dr. Mike Eades' talk at Low Carb USA San Diego last week. Finally got to have a chat with him on camera too. Mike decoded the carbohydrate mess way, way back - and is always willing to help anyone with his immense knowledge. Here in part one, we talk about the LCHF evidence base. Also, we touch on the horror of the 'heart-healthy' vegetable oils...!
July 2016 San Diego: 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. 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 ! Supported by www.IHDA.ie ( For more free content please subscribe at www.thefatemperor.com/subscribe )
July 2016 San Diego: 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 :-)
July 2016 San Diego: Dominic D'Agostino and Fat Emperor talk Ketogenic Diets & Cancer. I really enjoyed Dominic D'Agostino's great talk at Low Carb USA San Diego the other day. I then had the privilege of sitting with him for this short discussion. Dominic has been leading extraordinary scientific work in the use of ketogenic diets to aid in cancer treatment and prevention. Here he 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... :-)
July 2016 Dublin Paramedics Talk. My latest cut on Cardiovascular Disease primary causes. Don't think it's gonna change too much either...!
Vail February 2016 - See www.dietdoctor.com : "Can an engineer know more about how to get healthy than his doctor, in fact more than his three doctors? When it comes to using nutrition, the answer is yes. Meet Ivor Cummins, who quickly had to become an expert to cure himself. Ivor Cummins is a well-trained problem solver. When blood tests showed liver problems – the very common issue fatty liver – Ivor set out to find the solution to the problem. He soon found it. Soon he had lost lots of weight and his liver problems were totally gone. See why here...
JUNE 2016 - David Bobbett on CAC and Saving Lives. What would you do if presented with a devastating diagnosis? A diagnosis revealed with a powerful test, a test that can clearly identify the world's biggest killer - raging in your body? Finally, what would you do when you discover that this test has been available for 30 years, and could save millions of lives - but no-one really knows about it? Welcome to the world of Calcium Scanning and the CAC Score. Suppressed and underused for decades based on economics, and millions of people lost.
Fat Emperor interviews the Cardiology 'Father of Calcium Scanning' - Bruce Brundage MD. This man was pivotal in recognising the power of the CT Scan of the Heart, working closely with the Physicist inventor of this amazing technology (Doug Boyd PhD). Did you know that 40% of heart attacks occur in the 10% of people with highest CAC Score? Or that people with a yearly rising CAC score - have 17.2 TIMES the heart attack rate compared to those with stable CAC? That's right - the Calcium Scan is cheap, fast and unparalleled.
Really enjoyed this interview with Andreas - and there's some useful nuggets in there. For the Holegrain-sozzled masses. With their painfully-strained livers :-)

Super to catch up with Prof Tim Noakes, following his excellent talk at the Foodloose event. Here we discuss the challenges of LCHF leadership, and how to stem the tide of Diabesity. This will only be achieved through the appliance of correct nutritional science. But how does one overturn the many misled professions?

April 2016 - My latest Podcast with Vinnie Tortorich:
Excerpt that covers my upcoming book is directly below:
Dropping by New York I took the opportunity to have another enjoyable chat with Dr. Brookler. Since our last meeting, he has been focussing in on the clinical effects of low-carb, high-fat diets. He is seeing some impressive outcomes from the approach !
He has also been researching insulin's effects on endoplasmic reticulum stress...
Ketogenic Diets and Cancer
Cancer has been a leading cause of death in the Western world for some time now, but what is the best nutritional regime to address it? Andrew Scarborough was faced with massive seizures and migraines, followed by a belated diagnosis of Grade III Anaplastic Astrocytoma. Myself and Dr. Jeffry Gerber had the privilege of meeting Andrew in London recently. We captured insights around his brave and compelling journey. Rarely has one man's application of scientific research, been so focussed and so inspiring - enjoy.
A great chat on the dietary guidelines confusion, the power of 'food as medicine', and Aseem's upcoming movie with Cereal Killer Donal O'Neill: https://vimeo.com/141154618
November 2015: The Fat Emperor and Dr. Jeff Gerber catch Damon in London to discuss his recent release, following a great lunch with a seriously low-carb crew, organised by Zoe Harcombe (pic below).
'That Sugar Film' is making waves indeed in the past few months, educating the public in one of the world's primary health issues - rent it now !
This second and final part of our conversation covers Sugar, Statistical Shenanigans, and the Low-Fat Lunacy. It concludes with checking in on the progress of theSecond Low Carbohydrate Revolution. I hope you enjoy it nearly as much as I did. His excellent book that clears up decades of confusion: http://www.amazon.com/World-Turned-Up...
The landmark carbohydrate and diabetes paper here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/...
In early August I had the pleasure of being welcomed by Richard at his home in Brooklyn, NY. He was a most gracious host, and I felt privileged to enjoy a discussion with one of the technical leaders in the movement. Our conversation centred on something huge and inexorable that will stem the epidemic of 'diabesity' in our world; that's right folks - we were talking about the Second Low Carbohydrate Revolution.

THE KRAFT INTERVIEW: Trump Tower Chicago July 31
Dr. Joseph R. Kraft developed and validated the ultimate (and earliest) test for diabetes back in the 1970's. His personal research and exceptional experience as a lifelong pathologist enabled him to link the vast majority of modern heart disease to undiagnosed diabetes. Kraft reached the age of 95 years in August 2015, just after myself and Dr. Jeffry Gerber conducted this interview. His legacy should be enormous - but it has gone unrecognised so far. Please share this free production as widely as possible in order to correct this rank injustice; you will also be helping the world to understand how Type 2 Diabetes can be PROPERLY diagnosed and resolved. With Kraft's early diagnosis, and the emerging realisation that diabetes can be prevented through specific dietary means, we can save millions from unnecessary cardiac death. Dr. Kraft's book is absolutely required reading:

A conversation with Dr. Brookler on preventing Tinnitus, Meniere's Disease, Migraine and other inner ear disorders - touching on the underlying root causes that unify these. We also cover some of the many issues with modern research bias, and knowledge gaps in the medical community with respect to chronic disease root cause. Finally we touch on the work of Dr. Joseph Kraft, whose discovery of Hyperinsulinemia patterns and much more could enable us to halt the Diabesity Epidemic.
