For those of you new to LCHF (low carb high fat/healthy fat) and paleo, The Food Revolution is a great introductory video from Dr Andreas Eenfeldt MD, aka Diet Doctor. It is a lecture he gave at the Ancestral Health Symposium.
The Food Revolution – Dr Andreas Eenfeldt
Here, he explains what is actually causing obesity and how modern science has discovered the fault in the low fat theory. What has changed in our environment that it took millions of years for evolution to occur, yet the obesity crisis has only occurred in the last 30 years?
In 1984 the campaign was lunched to encourage people to fear fat and cholesterol, yet it was an unproven theory. It was an experiment which we have all been part of. If we are told to eat less fat, we eat more carbohydrate. And what happens when we eat more carbs? Our insulin is stimulated, so less fat =more carbs = fat storage hormone = more obesity.The Food Revolution - Diet Doctor. Watch this for an excellent overview of LCHF.

“It’s time to face the facts. There is no connection between saturated fats and cardiovascular disease” Peter Nilsson – Professor of Cardiovascular Research
“People have been recommending low fat diets for 30 years, and then it turns out to be completely wrong! There is no proven correlation between saturated fats and cardiovascular disease” Fredrik Nyström – Professot of Internal Medicine
