With every new year comes new resolutions and I am sure that many people right now are trying to work out how they are going to improve their health profile in 2011. Do they try and eat a little less and do a bit more? Perhaps the answer is to join the gym or perhaps buy a smaller plate to eat from?   What is clear is that most people will go back to the same old same old – count a few calories and hope that by some miracle that calorie counting will work.  It would be a miracle for calorie counting to work if you are several stone overweight.

But while loads of people burn cash joining the gym or calorie counting clubs it was great to hear two leading cardiologists talking about obesity and in particular the connection between carbohydrates and obesity. Finally we get some science on the radio.  If you want to listen to the interview go to:-

In deed if you follow this link you can listen to the conversation and you may even find that at the end of it you will agree with Dr Walter Willett, chairman of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health that :-

“If Americans could eliminate sugary beverages, potatoes, white bread, pasta, white rice and sugary snacks, we
would wipe out almost all the problems we have with weight and diabetes and other metabolic diseases.”

Is it not remarkable that whilst the best brains in the world all believe that the issue is starch and sugar the average person is still being told to count calories and reduce fat?

  1. hannah, another good blog. As a T2 who was obese, dropping the carbs has proved a life changer.

    Happy New Year to you and yours

    Dr. Willett’s comment is good but falls short of the mark in terms of providing complete protection from chronic inflammatory disease. While some low carb enthusiasts are aware of the problem, (Google “omega-6 Whole Health Source”) very few seem to appreciate the magnitude of the damage to the public health from excessive omega-6 intake. May I suggest Evelyn Tribole’s “Omega-6 Research News and Commentary” blog for starters. Also, “Google omega-6 omega-3 imbalance.”

  3. Hi
    We, my wife and i are following the way of eating described in big fat lies, not because we are in need of weight but for health reasons.
    We have been looking for an alternative to bread that we can bake ourselves.
    There are of course plenty on the various websites, atkins etc, but we do not trust them.
    Can you give us a recipe.
    peter and jacqui.
    Best Wishes for the new year and good luck in your continuing battles with the food standards agency.
