    Dr Aseem Malhotra says it like it is.

    Just found this on the Fat Emperor blog, our very own Dr Aseem Malhotra saying it like it is:
    http://www.thefatemperor.com/blog/2015/8/27/newsflash-aseem-molhatra-getting-the-lchf-message-out-on-the-bbc-diabetes-diet
    His basic message, on TV this morning, was LCHF is better than statins, aspirins, stents for heart conditions, diabetes, weight loss and that the Eat Well Plate and current nutritional advice is WRONG and is causing current epidemics.
    Shame they had to create "balance" with a silly, confused GP prattling on.

    Dr Malhotra does 'say it like it is'
    Thanks for this info Sally.

    I especially like his statement that the Eat Well Plate and current nutritional advice is WRONG and is causing current epidemics.

    All the best Jan

    As usual Dr Aseem Malhotra completely nails it, the NHS and Eatwell Plate is killing people off big time. He needs to be more clear on his recent campaign against heart stents. As Chris said on my heart stent post, if I had not adopted the low fat high carb diet decades ago, I may not have needed heart stents, however, no diet will clear almost totally closed arteries due to Atherosclerosis. The only fix is angioplasty and stents or a heart by-pass operation. The $64000 question for me and countless others, will the low carb higher fat lifestyle prevent the arteries from deteriorating and the stents becoming blocked in the future. No one has the answer for that one as far as I know. affraid

    I saw his interview on TV this morning too. The man made mincemeat out of the fat doubting doctor in the studio.

    Meanwhile over at the flog. Phoenix who uses a 40 - 60% carb diet (depending on what post you read) and is staunch supporter of Hope Warshaw. Who says a 60% carb diet is not high carb and low carb is old dogma and drugs are the way to go, commented on the Dr Aseem Malhotra TV appearance today. As always lot's of links to back up her claims.

    "In his Independent article and also in the BMJ article Dr Maholtra cites the Predimed trial.

    The Med diet worked out at around 41% fat and 40% carb, which wasn't much different to the low fat arm which worked out at 44% carb and 37%. so it wasn't testing either a high fat low carb diet or a low fat high carb diet .(and actually the proportions weren't that different to those eaten before the trial)"

    Not too sure on what she is getting at, but you can be sure her low carb anti stance is very much alive and well, albeit in her usual subtle way. The take home message for me is, if it is agreed the Med diet has benefits for all, imagine the benefits for a diabetic on a very low carb diet (say 50 carbs per day).

    Put it another way. A diabetic on a 2500 calorie a day diet using 50% carbs equates to 1250 calories from carbs or approximately 312 grams of carb per day. Over the years I have met and communicated via blogs and forums with countless type one and type two diabetics, and I have never heard of one who can hold safe blood glucose numbers on that sort of carb intake, other than Phoenix, what a truly exceptional Woman she is.

    I'd just downloaded one of the PREDIMED papers but haven't read it yet, the pdf is available.

    Yes I'd say Aseem nailed that one, the GP burbling happily that we must make sure we take the antidote to the poison seemed a tad out of her depth.

    I have a couple of Iris Shai's papers too, for those who haven't read them they are here along with a whole lot more http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed and search for Shai I

    Seeing Dr Malhotra said the eatwell plate is nonsense on the BBC this morning why did phoenix not make a comment about that. For years she's been defending it saying it's all about portion control ignoring the percentages of macronutrients and the same goes for the DUK dietary advice.

    This is the Iris Shai paper much discussed on blogs and elsewhere.

    There's now a four year followup so that covers six years of low carb or mediterranean diets. The problem there appears from the results to be that people are slipping in their diets although they may not be admitting it.

    Frankly I find that it bit hard to understand when you see and feel the benefits for yourself.

    Some of her work is behind a paywall but there are several other freely available papers derived from the original two year study.

    I feel they are trying to push "Mediterranean" over low carb

    http://www.amjmed.com/article/S0002-9343%2811%2900410-4/abstract

    not too surprising as Israel is not a million miles away from the Med

    I assume RD means Registered Dietician there also
