Low Carb High Fat

My friend Darren has a blog about eating/living a low carb high fat lifestyle. The boy was nowhere near fat, but he’s the kind of person that goes whole hog into something when he buys into it.

He’s not a doctor (Damnit Jim!) but he is very good at synthesizing information and presenting it in bite sized chunks.

One of my favorite parts of his website, is the videos page.

Darren has a lot of videos on there from established and renowned academics and doctors talking about the toxicity of sugar and carbohydrates and how harmful they are to eat. The video about “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” by Dr. Robert Lustig where he explains how fructose is essentially considered a poison by your body.

After watching that video, I didn’t want to eat anything. It is definitely an eye opener. It’s a tad long, but it’s packed full of all the science you can shake a stick at.

Here’s one of the videos on Darren’s site:

This isn’t a nutrition blog, but Darren’s is. I suggest taking a few minutes to peruse his site, watch some of the videos, and then decide if you want to continue eating and drinking 100+ lbs. worth of sugar per year.

I should mention, that Darren’s not selling anything, he’s just sharing the information that he has discovered with us. Don’t be scurred.

    Hey! Thanks for the shout out!

    Speaking of Dr. Lustig, the videos at the top of the first page of the videos section (“The Skinny on Obesity”) are the best ones I’ve seen as a primer for healthy eating.

    Shameless plug: my favorite (and most ambitious and underdeveloped) part of the site is the disease list—I’m so far behind on fleshing it out! My goal is to show just how many conditions can result from eating lots of carbs (or too little fat) with references to the supporting research. A great example is the gallstones page—gallstones often get blamed on a fatty diet, but once you understand the mechanisms, you realize that the exact opposite is true.
