After about a year of study, four books, and untold hours sorting YouTube video programs, I have come to this Digest. What follows are five of the best, clearest and most useful informational videos dealing with the maintenance of optimal health through proper diet, presented by four medical luminaries:
Medical Aspects of the Low Carbohydrate Lifestyle — Professor Timothy Noakes — Exercise physiologist from CapeTown, South Africa. Marathon runner of note gets diabetes then tracks down why on our behalf, offers solution.
Cardiovascular Disease — Dr. Gerald Lewis — Emergency cardiologist serving New Zealand, career answer to how the heart attack event may be made less lethal. NOTE: Static at the 32-minute mark is in the audio, not a problem with your computer. Carbs, not dietary fat problem.
Ten Diet Myths — Dr. Zoë Harcombe — UK Karate: Using math, logic and research skills demonstrates corrections on 50 years of dietary myth.
Overweight and Diabetes Explosions — Dr. Zoë Harcombe — English presentation, Norse title only: PhD Cambridge, former vegetarian outlines disease born of food supplies.
Low Carb Explained — Dr Mary Vernon, MD — Simplified, made easy, protein requirements for muscle maintenance.
Lives are being salvaged by these folks. They have my applause. I want to further their work.
We are enduring a public health crisis, especially since 1977. All of the cardiac-lipid diet theory is a lie. You can quit eating carbohydrates and no disease will come on you, because there is no Minimum Daily Requirement for either sugar or starch. The protein requirement to save muscle mass is about 1 gram per pound of ideal weight. The real trick is getting enough fat, as they took it out of the food supply and replaced it with sugar. All carbohydrate (starch) turns to sugar inside the body. The gate keeper for the bank account is insulin.
It is my earnest desire that you will set aside time in a distraction-free environment and consider what these people have to say.
With my hope for your improved health and eternal well-being, I am and remain

He has been cited more than 16,000 times in scientific literature, has an H-index of 71 and is rated an A1 scientist by the National Research Foundation of South Africa.
In my practice, with my experience in general medicine as well as cardiology, I believe it is essential to look at the person as a whole, not a specific organ system which is not working well, and by whole I also include mind body and nutritional medicines which are perhaps the most powerful healers of all.
In trying to understand why obesity increased almost ten fold in the UK between 1972 and 1999 I found myself looking for what had changed. To cut a long, but fascinating, story short, our dietary advice was the thing that changed. We demonised fat; we eulogised carbohydrate — and epidemics of obesity and type 2 diabetes occurred. Coincidence or cause?
Dr Mary Vernon, MD, is one of the world's foremost experts on treating obesity and diabetes with low carbohydrate nutrition. She is a practicing family physician, educates doctors on low carb and is active in and former president of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (doctors specializing in treating obese patients).
Nobody knows more about the practicalities of low carb than Dr. Mary Vernon. Here she explains it for you.
