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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Written like a real scientific article 2 juin 2014

Many health related books simply spit out non-verifiable information. Dr. Campbell cites sources as is done in peer-reviewed scientific journal and thus if desired the reader is able to verify facts/claims.

Vegetables and fruits are full of carbs, are low-calorie, and protect from disease (anti-inflammatory and pro-respiratory). When will society accept that vegetables and fruits (more vegetables) must be eaten in high-quantity? Do not wait until you are old or dying.

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.

Dr Colin Campbell's work has been a life changer for me. This book helps to consolidate the ideas presented previously and avoid being misled or confused by the tons of commercially motivated diet pitches that we keep hearing about.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Did Dr. Campbell's Fact Checker Call in Sick? 28 novembre 2013

The Low-Carb Fraud seems to be intended as a indictment against low-carb and paleo diets, which have been gaining greater acceptance. Dr. Campbell gets some important things right: refined carbs are bad for you and carbohydrates are broken down into glucose in the intestine, leading to a surge of insulin. He adds that low-carb diets help people lose weight and reduce insulin (temporarily, he says), and even calls them fun.

However, the book is riddled with significant errors. Listing them all is beyond the scope of this review, so I'll cover three major areas: Dr. Campbell's slander of low-carb proponents and his misrepresentation of low-carb diets and the field of paleoanthropology.

Dr. Campbell says the authors of low-carb books and diets, including Michael and Mary Dan Eades, Loren Cordain, and Eric Westman have "no experience in scientific research, and a vast fortune generated by the sales of their shakes, powders, extracts, oils, bars, and even chocolates." The popularity of low-carb diets is mostly marketing.

In reality, several authors of low-carb and paleo books are professional researchers at respected universities, and the Drs. Eades have a qualification Dr. Campbell doesn't: treating patients. Dr. Cordain of Colorado State University has written over 100 peer-reviewed articles and abstracts. Dr. Westman is a faculty member of the Duke Clinical Research Training Program. The Low-Carb Fraud doesn't mention Dr. Stephen Phinney, a physician-scientist who has written more than 70 peer reviewed papers and book chapters, or Dr. Jeff Volek, a professor and author who leads a research team at the University of Connecticut and co-wrote, with Dr. Phinney, The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living, and, with Drs. Westman and Phinney, The New Atkins for a New You, a book that ought to have popped up on Dr. Campbell's radar. Physician-researcher Dr. Richard K. Bernstein, one of the foremost experts on diabetes and a type 1 diabetic himself since 1946, doesn't get a mention, either, even though he's still in practice.

While Dr. Campbell criticizes low-carb diets for eliminating most vegetables, even Atkins induction calls for two small salads a day. It's just starchy vegetables like potatoes and beans that are off the menu; almost anything at a salad bar is encouraged. A NO-carber is a rare bird, and probably following such a strict diet for medical reasons. Yes, there are therapeutic reasons for no-carb, low-carb and paleo diets, even though Dr. Campbell chalks up their popularity to the love of eating meat. Some paleo enthusiasts and low-carbers control diabetes, allergies, tooth decay, GI problems, and inflammation with diet, and there's now research on epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease and cancer in connection with carbohydrate. (If you're trying to use a plant-based diet to control diabetes, take your meter and test before and one and two hours after meals. This is the advice I give my mother. To her dismay, fruit, beans, grains and other high-carb food can, indeed, spike your blood sugar, especially when eaten without fat.)

Dr. Campbell's mini-book includes in appendix on paleo diets where he questions the science behind them. Here, unlike at the beginning of the book, he says that Dr. Loren Cordain is a researcher. Dr. Campbell's descriptions of paleo diets and the study of paleoanthropology sound about right as far as they go, but he does what he accuses Gary Taubes of doing: cherry picking details and weaving a story out of them. Dr. Campbell concludes there's little evidence that human ancestors ate very much meat and says things that, while they may be true, seem deliberately misleading. For example, "Cordain, in fact, presented a very similar estimate for the amount of meat in prehistoric humans' diets--3 to 5 percent--in a 2004 symposium in Denver, Colorado." Since this doesn't square with modern hunter-gatherer diets or the probable diet of Homo, Dr. Cordain was probably referring to distant human ancestors such as australopithecus (like Lucy), who lived four million years ago and, yes, ate a lot of fruits, vegetables and tubers. However, australopithecus was more like bonobos than like us. Dr. Campbell mentions none of this.

There's also no mention of the expensive tissue hypothesis (our ancestors' increasing brain size and decreasing gut size and how that change was possible), stone tools, butcher marks on animal bones, carbon isotope analysis, human ancestors' unique ability to cook, or the possibility that early (and later) human ancestors could have scavenged animal carcasses instead of hunting, all of which point to meat being an important part of our ancestors' diet. This body of evidence comes from anthropologists such as Dr. Richard Leakey and his colleagues Drs. Pat Shipman and Alan Walker of Pennsylvania State University, Dr. Richard Wrangham of Harvard, and Dr. Loren Cordain of Colorado State University, among others.

This is the tip of the iceberg. On nearly every page of the book, there are errors and misleading statements, some of them easily fact checked, others requiring a knowledge of shenanigans peculiar to nutrition research. There's one thing this book is good for: if you know a low-carber information junkie, buy them a copy, saying you know how much they like to test their critical thinking.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An important Book 21 mars 2014
Par Grumpy Scientist - Publié sur

Colin Campbell wrote this much-needed booklet to counteract the misleading advocacy of animal based foods. Although he is an eminent scientist, there are elephants in the room that nobody wants to talk about, namely the phenomenon of hormesis and the pernicious lack of nutrients in post-industrial food. I suggest you combine Campbell with Weston Price and add judiciously Edward Calabrese and a better understanding would emerge. Further eliminate the term "animal food" as it spans true seafoods, organ meats to simple muscle meats. Good luck.
