Low-carb, high-fat, the best diet for weight loss: Index


Why calorie food labelling is a nonsense
Why the latest government idea to put calorie counts on food labels in an attempt to curb rising rates of obesity is a nonsense

Study finds Fat children eat better diets than their thinner classmates
But they don't consider that their 'healthy' diet could be the cause!

A 'new' weight loss drug, called alli is all over the newspapers at present. It is hyped as a wonder drug.
What is alli? The Myalli website says: "alli is the only FDA approved, over-the-counter weight loss product. The alli program includes alli capsules and myalliplan, an individually tailored, online action plan to help you lose weight gradually."

But alli is really xenical (previously known as Orlistat). And the harm it did under that name, will continue under the new name

And it doesn't work — for two reasons:

  1. It isn't dietary fat that puts weight on, only carbs do that. Dietary fat is actually slimming. So, eat a low-carb, high-fat diet and you will save a small fortune. — alli is not cheap!
  2. If you want to lose weight using alli, you still have to eat a low-fat diet and exercise, which is probably what you are already doing and, if you're doing that, you don't need alli. If you don't also cut your fat intake, you'll spend a lot of time sitting either on the toilet or in very messy, fatty pants. The fat that alli has stopped your body absorbing has to go somewhere; it leaks out of your nether end!

But those side effects the least of your problems. You could end up like this Swedish alli (xenical) user.

Until people realise that there is only one way to live their lives at a normal weight and in good health — and that way does not include drugs — they will remain a constant source of income for unscrupulous drug pushers, while living an uncomfortable life.

Do calories really count?

Tells why the dogma that weight loss or gain is all about calories is wrong.

Why it's carbs, not fats, that cause weight gain

If you eat too much fat, you'll put weight on, we are told. In fact fats are the least fattening of all foods. It is carbs that are the culprits

Why your low-carb diet should be high-fat, not high protein

Low-carb diets are usually described as high-protein diets. But a high protein diet in which both carbs and fats are cut, is probably the most unhealthy diet of all.

GI Blues

GI diet books are the latest fad as authors search for more 'magic' to see their books. But how useful is GI? This short article tells why the Glycemic Index is not as useful as you might think.

Low-carb Ripoffs

The overweight and obese have always provided a very lucrative and ready market for food companies to exploit with expensive, nutrient-poor, highly-processed, slimming 'foods' and diet products. Now they are cashing in on the 'low-carb' market.

No Joy with Soy

There is an increasing trend of putting soya in everything from bread and breakfast cereals to ice-cream and, of course, low-carb 'diet' products. High in protein, and very abundant and cheap, it looks like a good food to include in other foods. But, while fermented soya is okay, unfermented soya is not. And it is the unfermented soya that is used in these products today. Put bluntly, soya protein powders, soya flour, soya oil and soya milk, and foods containing them, should carry a health warning as cigarettes do. Here's why.

Why a low-carb diet is best for weight loss

If you want to lose body fat, you have to use that fat as a fuel. Your body won't do that unless you give it no choice.

Why low-fat, low-calorie diets fail

It is no real secret that low-fat, low-calorie diets cause weight loss only in the short term as weight is invariably regained once the dieter goes back to eating "normally". And there is a very good reason for this.

Begin at the beginning: Correct diet for childbirth and for bringing up young children

We are continually being advised that "prevention is better than cure". Nowehere is that more true than in the battle against overweight and obesity. If they, and the associated conditions are to be prevented, we have to start as we mean to go on.

William Banting

You may think that low-carb diets are a recent American import. In fact they originated in England   as long ago as 1863. This is the story of William Banting, who wrote the first low-carb diet book, Letter on Corpulence: addressed to the public.

A Xenical Experience

One woman's horrific experience of the weight loss drug, Xenical. It's much safer to Eat fat if you want to Get Thin!

The low-fat brigade try to defend the indefensible

It is suggested that doctors who do not warn their patients about the supposed dangers of low-carb diets may be sued. The low-fat dictocrats are fighting a rearguard action as their world starts to crumble.

The Correct Diet for Athletic Performance

Athletes are told to eat lots of carbohydrates to increase their performance. It's nonsense, as this paper will demonstrate.
