So there’s a study out claiming that a low-carb diet is better for weight loss and heart health than a low-fat diet.
It’s making major headlines, but apparently most folks haven’t actually studied the study.
In today’s vlog I discuss this hilariously bad piece of…scientific research.
One more thing I inadvertently left out. Dr Dean Ornish and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn have both published studies demonstrating that a healthy, low-fat, plant-based, whole foods diet can clinically reverse advanced heart disease. To my knowledge, there are no comparable studies showing a reversal of advanced heart disease with a low-carb diet.
And if you or someone you care about has heart disease, buy his book!

Am I biased toward a lower fat diet?
Yeah you could say that. For a few reasons. Fat only comprises about 23% of my daily caloric intake, and those are primarily fats from almonds, walnuts, flax, chia, hemp, avocados, the occasional coconut, and little to no oils. So I’m thriving on a diet that is pretty low in fat. Beyond that, the vast majority of people I know who healed cancer with nutrition did it with a whole foods plant-based diet that was low in fat as well. A prime example is The Gerson Therapy, which is one of the most effective time-tested nutrition protocols to heal cancer, and is also very low in fat. No oils are allowed except flax oil.
I've interviewed over 60 people who've healed all types and stages of cancer. Check them out here. Or use the search bar to find survivors of specific cancer types.
I also created a coaching program for cancer patients, caregivers and anyone who is serious about prevention called SQUARE ONE. It contains the step-by-step strategies used by myself and everyone I know who has healed cancer with nutrition and natural, non-toxic therapies.
