– LCHF conference in Australia, 2014, YouTube channel.

There are so many great presentations from this conference! I really hope that uploading conference presentations will eventually becomes standard practice across all fields. Science needs to be public.

A selection of presentations from this conference:

Vicky Kuriel: Case Reports from an LCHF Dietician

Dr Caryn Zinn: A Low-Carb Dietician’s Perspective

Ass. Prof. Ken Sikaris: Does LCHF Improve Your Blood Tests?

Dr Zeeshan Arain: Why Aren’t I Losing Weight on LCHF?

Prof. Tim Noakes: Medical Aspects of the Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle


 TED and TEDx talks


Nina Teicholz at TEDxEast on her book ‘The Big Fat Surprise’.

A brief summary on where nutritional science took a wrong turn.

Dr Sarah Hallberg  at TEDxPurdueU on ‘Reversing Type 2 Diabetes Starts With Ignoring the Guidelines’

‘Can a person be “cured” of Type 2 Diabetes? Dr. Sarah Hallberg provides compelling evidence that it can, and the solution is simpler than you might think.’

Excellent talk that serves as a very good introduction to the issue of carbohydrates and insulin resistance. Watch.


 OTHER YOUTUBE PRESENTATIONS


Gary Taubes on ‘Calories vs Carbohydrates: Clearing up Confusion over Competing Obesity Paradigms’ 

This talk goes into the energy models used to tackle obesity and weight loss. Does a simple equation of more calories in than more calories out make you fat?

I will definitely be getting into the energy balance model, it is ridiculously interesting.


– Dr Stephen Phinney on Low Carb Living, interview by The Diet Doctor (Andreas Eenfeldt).


– Gary Taubes on his book ‘Good Calories, Bad Calories’.


– Prof Tim Noakes on The Great Diet Controversy.

Prof Noakes goes through the whole story of how fat became villified and why you should reconsider this notion. It provides great context and is very much worth the watch.


– Dr Peter Attia on The Straight Dope on Cholesterol and Diet.

Don’t fear cholesterol. Just don’t.


– Andreas Eenfeldt, MD, on The Food Revolution.


 Dr Jeff Volek on The Many Facets of Keto-Adaptation: Health, Performance and Beyond.


Dr Robert Lustig on The Skinny on Obesity

Easy-to-watch 7-part series about sugar and obesity.


 – Andreas Eenfeldt interviews Dr Michael D. Fox on Eat to Get Pregnant, but also: using  low-carb diets changes for fertility problems and PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome).

PCOS is linked to metabolic syndrome. If you are overweight, you may start experiencing some of the symptoms linked to PCOS without even realising it (as happened in my case). Dr Fox advises long-term low-carb, high-fat diets for women experiencing fertility problems.

From the wikipedia page:

‘PCOS is the most common endocrine disorder among women between the ages of 18 and 44.[11]

‘A majority of people with PCOS have insulin resistance and/or are obese. Their elevated insulin levels contribute to or cause the abnormalities seen in the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis that lead to PCOS.’

Why is this not common knowledge?! Why did I only accidentally stumble upon this condition and it’s cause at age 29… (Maybe I’ve just been living under a rock, I don’t know, but not one doctor has ever discussed this with me or mentioned the fact that PCOS exists.) This is not just mildly infuriating.


 – Andreas Eenfedlt interviews Gary Taubes on why we gat fat.

If you’re into science and understand a bit about rigorous models and experimentation, this will be an engrossing 40 minutes.
