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 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 Amazon.com
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.

T. Colin Campbell, PhD is one of the most undiscovered researchers of the food we eat and how it impacts our lives and lifespan. His work on the book "The China Study" is unparalled in contribution to "food as a medicine and health and longivity. Read both and you'll discover how you are manitulated by the food industry. Scary stuff...but gives you to power to impact you life in a positive reasonable, sensible way. This book is worth the read...just be ready to be shocked.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Clearing away the confusion about what is high carb 13 mars 2015
Par Alfons Grabher - Publié sur Amazon.com
I liked this book a lot. Well structured and easy to read. It gave me many new insights into the politics of this debate. It confirmed my observation: all studies that are in favor of low-carb, never really put high-carb to the test. High carb starts at 80+% of total calories coming from carbs. No low-carb study ever considered this. They call 65% high carb. I think that's the "whole" (pun intended) problem here.

Apart from that, I believe most 1 star reviews here are paid guns.

Par RRabago - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am interested in my long-term health above all else, so of course I wanted to give this book a listen; I am always open to furthering my understanding of nutritional science and maximizing my health.

I only managed to listen to about half of the book. The author refers many times to a low-carb diet consisting of "butter, bacon, cheese, eggs and steak" as if those are the only foods from which to choose. I do understand that uninformed individuals with the desire to quickly lose weight could see any fatty, protein meal as "healthy" and fail to add sufficient quantities of quality carbohydrates from vegetables to the detriment of their long-term health. Those of us interested in a sustainable diet for long-term health have learned that a low-carb diet can and SHOULD include large amounts of green vegetables, herbs, some nuts, and likely some berries.

I do agree that the low-carb diet "craze" has led to a multitude of low-carb frankenfoods, and faux sugars -- which to me, don't seem that they could possibly contribute to overall health, and I do think these should be avoided. I was looking for a comprehensive review of scientific studies that might influence my understanding of how my diet may be compromising my health, and I didn't find that here.

Anecdotal tidbit below:

I have been following a strict low carb ketogenic diet for 3 months (lost 20.5 pounds so far), and previously followed a paleo-style diet for a year or so. When I added back rice, potatoes, fruit, corn, and honey, I gained back 35 of 40 pounds I had lost by cutting out processed foods, grains, sugar, etc. Clearly, these do not contribute to my health.

After listening to a few hours of this book-- I haven't found any evidence that my diet is worth changing. I'm going to stick with my leafy greens, high quality meats, eggs, cheese, nuts, berries, and coconut oil.

I am also keeping in mind that not every diet works for every person. I hope those of you who learned from and enjoyed this book can experiment to find a diet that increases your overall health, and makes you feel great. I do appreciate that this books shares information that has been helpful for others and might give hope to individuals who did not find a low-carb diet to be sustainable or healthful. Cheers!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Mistakenly links high protein to the low carb high fat movement 18 octobre 2014
Par John B. - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.
