AT LAST .... LOW CARB HIGH FAT FROM IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN NEW ZEALAND HEALTH AND NUTRITION



This lecture session is quite long but well worth watching if you have an interest in nutritional health. Diabetes and obesity along with some other serious illnesses are covered. I really appreciated the last portion of the video with dietitian Dr. Caryn Zinn. The main speaker, Dr. Grant Schofield, is director of the Human Potential Centre at Auckland University of Technology. 

Hopefully their work will bring about changes in the way we think about the food we eat. It was revealing that Dr. Zinn mentioned a little booklet printed in 1951 that advocates avoiding bread and other starchy carbohydrates and eating plenty of green vegetables, eggs, meat, fish and cheese. This is about 51-52 minutes into the video if you don't want to watch the whole thing.

Dr Schofied has a blog which is attracting a huge amount of controversy. Some people will never open their minds to take in a different scenario to the one they have already accepted. That is a great pity because we now have more obesity, more heart problems, more diabetes and growing rates of alzheimers and no abatement of cancer with our so called healthy diet of the last 50 years or so.

  1. I didn't get that far into the video - I found Geoff's style a little difficult to watch but I'm extremely happy that this is happening in New Zealand. One of the low carb friends I meet up with actually works with him.

    I hope you feel less tired and settle back down to normal life after your time away. At least the weather is lovely.
