A critical look at nutritional science and anything else that strikes my fancy

Why are doctors so stupid?

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 23:52:52 +0000

particularly about nutrition.

Since I’ve been writing this blog for the past 12 years, I’ve received innumerable comments and e-mails all containing the same words: Why are doctors so stupid about diet? statins? fat? saturated fat? carbohydrate restriction? low-fat diets? and on and on. I’m not sure stupid is the right word – the right word is probably […]

Statin madness

Sat, 07 Dec 2013 04:11:20 +0000

  The statin madness infecting the greater part of the tribe of physicians has finally reached out and touched me personally. We all hear horror stories about all kinds of occurrences, but, although we feel empathy for the victims, we don’t truly understand until it happens to us directly. I’ve railed in numerous posts and […]

You Bet Your Life: An Epilogue to the Cholesterol Story

Mon, 11 Oct 2010 23:51:32 +0000

The first Dietary Goals for the United States (DGUS) were released in 1977 to not a lot of fanfare.  At that time, the great unwashed masses hadn’t really heard much about the word cholesterol, a substance the DGUS recommended that we should limit to 300 mg per day.  Doctors didn’t routinely screen for it, and […]

Thermodynamics and the metabolic advantage

Sat, 06 Mar 2010 07:11:08 +0000

There are a lot of disagreeable  jobs out there.  Dealing with Anthony Colpo is one of them.  Trying to make sense of thermodynamics is another.  Whereas dealing with AC is kind of like the job pictured at the left – distasteful but fairly simple – delving into the workings of the laws of thermodynamics is […]

AC anti-metabolic advantage dismemberment

Tue, 09 Feb 2010 06:40:17 +0000

I’ve got to apologize in advance for the length of this post, but in order to thoroughly do what needs to be done, it took the space. Readers of this blog who have been around for a couple of years have been through the Anthony Colpo (AC) fiasco with me.  For those of you who […]

Why is low-carb harder the second time around?

Fri, 16 Jan 2009 17:16:10 +0000

When I put out the call for what people wanted to read about on this blog in 2009, numerous folks commented that they would like to know why it seems so much more difficult to successfully follow a low-carb diet the second or third time around.  Over the years I’ve noticed this phenomenon in myself […]

Low-carb diet triumphant over low-fat in meta-analysis

Tue, 19 Aug 2008 19:41:31 +0000

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read the paper a colleague from Europe emailed me this morning. It was from the journal Obesity Reviews, the journal of the International Association for the Study of Obesity (IASO). The IASO is the international academic obesity research society, and as such, it is mired in all the […]

‘Cures’ of the past; implications for the present

Fri, 21 Sep 2007 01:14:57 +0000

In the early part of the 20th century an entrepreneur name Charles A. Tyrrell developed and promoted an enema device called the J.B. L. Cascade (the J.B.L. stood for Joy, Beauty and Life). Mr. Tyrrell (later Dr. Tyrrell; he got a medical degree at age 57) found a ready market for his device – at […]

Is a calorie always a calorie?

Tue, 11 Sep 2007 22:38:24 +0000

Over the past few weeks I’ve taken some heat in the comments section for my writing that weight loss or weight gain involves more than a simple accounting for calories. The entirety of mainstream medicine and nutrition believe that calories are the only thing that counts and that a low-carb diet is nothing more than […]
