The Skinny on Obesity

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Food, Insulin Resistance

A great little series of short videos about food, insulin, metabolic syndrome, obesity, sugar, glucose, fructose, leptin, and addiction. Doesn’t talk about anything like a ketogenic diet, or “healthy fat” so you can say more “mainstream” with more of an emphasis on sugar and obesity. A good watch to explain why the “The Industrial Global Diet” […]

“Whole food plant based diet” vs “Low carb diet high fat diet”… which is better for type 2 diabetics?

It is also known/related to your Basal/Resting Metabolic Expenditure per day.  I’ll treat all the definitions interchangably as they are all basically […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Diabetes, Diet, Food, Insulin Resistance, Weight Gain

I was watching another Jason Fung video: “The Calorie Deception” In it, he continues to go into obesity being a “hormonal” issue rather than a “caloric” issue which I’ve talked about before. And he references a chart which I found interesting, so did some Googling to find the original website: the 100 most ketogenic diet […]
