This Week in Low Carb News: Everyone is Fat and Bariatric Surgery Doesn’t Work

Every week I come across a bunch of articles I want to tweet about and comment on and every week I run out of time to do it.  This is my attempt to clear out the open tabs on my browser by putting them all in one place.  Enjoy!

Swedish study finds new way to restore insulin production in type 2 diabetes – This is so important! Because of how prevalent T2D is there is a certain percentage of the population that will totally blow out their beta cells and turn their T2D into T1D. (sometimes called T1.5D to differentiate it from the autoimmune disease that is T1D)  If there is a way to regenerte the pancreas and then educate people on what an LCHF diet can do for diabetes, there is a concrete path forward for any diabetic to overcome their disease.

Carbotoxicity—Noxious Effects of Carbohydrates – An important look at how excessive carb intake drives rapid cellular aging.

Want a healthier heart? Eat a steak – After Dr Bret Scher came on the podcast a few weeks ago, I made sure to follow him closely.  This editorial in the Houston Chronicle is an example of how he is using his title of cardiologist to speak with authority on nutritional issues.

More Than Two-Thirds of American Adults Are Overweight or Obese – Every time these obesity statistics come out, I am floored at what they reveal.  75% of American men are overweight or obese.  2/3 American women are overweight or obese.  Those are absolutely stunning numbers that are steadily increasing every year.  Wow.

THE CRIMINAL FARMER: HOW TO SAVE SMALL FARMS AND RECLAIM THE AMERICAN FOOD SYSTEM – Very interesting article about a problem I didn’t even know existed.  Farmers have to take their cattle to USDA inspected slaughterhouses to be butchered which means massive wait times to get the meat back and sometimes you don’t even get the meat from your cow back, defeating the purpose of you spending all that time raising your cattle right.

Comparison of the Performance of Common Measures of Weight Regain After Bariatric Surgery for Association With Clinical Outcomes – Bariatric surgery has a VERY high fail rate.  55% of people who undergo Bariatric surgery gain a significant portion of their initial weight loss back.  This surgery is putting a band-aid on an open wound.  First fix the underlying issues with your hormones driving weight gain and the terrible processed foods you are eating and then look at surgery but chances are you won’t need it once you fix your diet.
