    I remember when this happened the first time around and a load of peeps on DCUK were trying it, but I think that was about the time I stopped reading it, so I don't know what happened when they came off their shakes and returned to a "healthy diet". Anyone remember?

    In a paper dated 28 June 2018

    Dr. Zoe Harcombe asks, “Could we agree to demonize processed food, not saturated fat?” in her rapid response to a BMJ consensus paper. She concludes: “It seems simple and obvious to suggest that populations should return to eating the natural, unprocessed, food that was consumed before obesity and diabetes reached epidemic proportions; yet this is considered heresy by public health advisors. Clarification of the distinction between processed food and saturated fat could provide opportunity for agreement that processed food is unhealthy, while saturated fat is a natural part of most natural foods. Given that every food that contains fat, contains all three fats, the notion that saturated fat is harmful and unsaturated fat is healthful is illogical given their co-existence in foods required for human survival.”

    I think processes food is a good first step. But depending were you live a lot of "natural" non processed  food are no good for people with metabolic syndrome or diabetes.  Diet research is not easy too many variables to take account for. Then people have different genetic make up, not all food affect people the same way. Then studies are reported on average results, that means there may be outliers in top and bottom of the average for what the results may not apply. Dr. K latest post on saturated fat it is true for most, but some with a double copy of APOE4 have seen an increase in LDL cholesterol with saturated fat. I don't think it matter much for health but it scare some people. I think there are good general principles(LCHF) from were to work with but we have to see if something works for you.

    The new variation of the low calorie diet to "reverse diabetes" will not work long term. That have been tried in many types of forms and it may work for few. Maybe some for a while but it will not achieve long lasting results.

    She has a new blog post up - and free to access

    http://www.zoeharcombe.com/2018/07/saturated-fat-consultation-sacn-my-response/

    Malcolm Kendrick too

    https://drmalcolmkendrick.org/2018/07/03/why-saturated-fat-cannot-raise-cholesterol-levels-ldl-levels/

    If it goes on like this I am going to need to pay someone to read blogs for me. Twitter too. I have a whole bunch of papers stacked up that I haven't read either. Grrrrr.

    Yes I'd like to see a return to the way Gerald Reaven among other presented results as individual graphs rather than statistically processed averages. You can see a similar trend with differing amplitude among most subjects, but then some zing off in a completely different direction. My glucometer taught me a LOT. If only I had an insulin meter I would learn more.
