Présentation de l'éditeur

By now, the low-carb diet’s refrain is a familiar one:

Bread is bad for you. Fat doesn’t matter. Carbs are the real reason you can’t lose weight.

The low-carb universe Dr. Atkins brought into being continues to expand. Low-carb diets, from South Beach to the Zone and beyond, are still the go-to method for weight-loss for millions. These diets’ marketing may differ, but they all share two crucial components: the condemnation of “carbs” and an emphasis on meat and fat for calories. Even the latest diet trend, the Paleo diet, is—despite its increased focus on (some) whole foods—just another variation on the same carbohydrate fears.

In The Low-Carb Fraud, longtime leader in the nutritional science field T. Colin Campbell (author of The China Study and Whole) outlines where (and how) the low-carb proponents get it wrong: where the belief that carbohydrates are bad came from, and why it persists despite all the evidence to the contrary. The foods we misleadingly refer to as “carbs” aren’t all created equal—and treating them that way has major consequences for our nutritional well-being.

If you’re considering a low-carb diet, read this e-book first. It will change the way you think about what you eat—and how you should be eating, to lose weight and optimize your health, now and for the long term.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Mistakenly links high protein to the low carb high fat movement 18 octobre 2014
Par John B. - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I appreciate the intent of Dr. Campbell in promoting a return to whole food plant based food in the diet. I have followed an ovo-lacto vegetarian diet for 42 years. I have however been researching lower carb/higher fat dietary approaches over this last year. This was prompted by my experience as a Doctor of Chiropractic seeing a number of patients who improved their chronic pain patterns by adopting a LCHF diet. Dr. Campbell repeatedly referred to the low carb/high fat AND high protein in his criticism of this dietary movement. While there may be some who advocate the high protein component, I was not finding that in the low carb high fat dietary approaches that I was reading about. One example was the conference on low carb high fat nutrition that took place in New Zealand this year. In watching the many health care professionals who had seem so many improvements in themselves and their patients following LCHF dietary modifications, I noticed that they were all emphasizing that protein should not be high, but remain moderate. The main push was to lower the carbs and raise the healthy fats. The other common theme was to encourage people to avoid packaged foods and return to whole foods, to get their carbs from fruits and vegetables and to avoids sugar and starch laden packaged foods. I do see common ground here in both Vegan and LCHF dietary approaches where they are encouraging that the foundation of one's diet be a return to whole unprocessed fruit and vegetables. My critique of Dr. Campbell' book is that his linking a high protein component to the LCHF diet was an important error in accurately evaluating the current LCHF movement as it is currently being explored and researched.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 butter is good for you 12 décembre 2014
Par vickytray - Publié sur

This book explains the reasons why we only hear about how carbs make you fat, butter is good for you, and eggs and bacon are weight loss foods. It is mind blowing to me that the EXACT OPPOSITE of our "common sense" ideas about dieting and health turn out to be true--and there is a reason. They don't want you to know the truth. Ha. The meat and dairy industries would crumble and we would no longer kill 8.1 billion animals a year for food. Many industries in fact would go out of business if people knew how simple it was to improve their health. THAT Is why we are told the opposite of the truth. This book goes into all this in fascinating detail even though its very short and can be read in a few hours.

I lost 20 pounds on a low fat high carb vegan diet after trying to lose weight on the opposite--low carb--diets for years but never being able to starve myself for long enough. It is truly fascinating the lengths people will go to to stop the truth about whole food vegan diets from getting out there. I highly recommend this very short informative book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Problem solver of so-called incurable states and diseases, the environment, climate change, and the federal budget deficit 14 octobre 2014
Par Carol Grosser - Publié sur
A very short book and an excellent introduction to Dr. Campbell's other important books. I have read all of them and will read anything this excellent and very knowledgeable epidemiologist writes. I have personal experience as well. Eating his recommended way, I have gone from 235 pounds on a 5 ft 1 in frame to 121 pounds. I had been testing prediabetic for years and now my blood sugar and other values are completely normal. I stride around like a teenager whereas before I had x-ray verified need for replacement of both hips, both knees, and both ankles. I had severe osteoarthritis such that each step was very painful. I now work all day on my feet and have no pain at all. I have saved Medicare (i.e., US taxpayers) at $50,000/per joint replacement a whole lot of money. It is also predicted that at the current rate that these types of degenerative "old-age" problems are now occurring much younger such that it will take all of the gross national production to just pay for this so-called "health" care. We all need nutrition care and it is Dr. Campell's nutrition, not the government-subsidized nutrition of meat, diary, and grain.

So glad I read this book because I was getting confused by seeing all of the conflicting studies and scientific data online. Now I know why the confusion exists everyone should read this book if they want to understand the truth about diets and the food we eat!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Campbell's a true heavyweight 16 juillet 2014
Par Micah Stott - Publié sur
Ever wonder why diets that are diametrically opposed seem to get the exact same results? Or at least make similar claims? So how do both sides claim they are superior at decreasing heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes among adherents and which side does the research really support?
Campbell's "Low Carb Fraud" is a very succinct and well documented opposing viewpoint to the Atkins/Paleo/high protein diets. You can read this book in one sitting and understand the Whole Foods Plant Based stance on diet and nutrition. If you are paleo or researching paleo this is a great book to give you perspective from the other side of the argument. If you are already eating a WFPB diet this summarizes the research behind that diet well.
Campbell is a heavyweight, he knows the studies well as he's played an integral role in some of the most prominent scientific discoveries of diet and nutrition in our lifetime. This is a must read no matter what your current views are.
