A Low-Carb Lecture, The Latest Obesity Stats, And A New Online Research Library

I have for you today three very practical links with excellent information to access, absorb, and fully acquaint yourself with as you continue to educate yourself about livin' la vida low-carb and the impact it can have on obesity and healthy.


The Endocrinology Conference in the Duke Clinical Medicine Series has just posted this fascinating new Continuing Medical Education (CME) lecture given by Dr. William Yancy, Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina on June 15, 2007. Register for FREE and then check out what this leading low-carb researcher had to say about his research of livin' la vida low-carb!

His presentation outline includes the following:

- The Use of Low-Carbohydrate Diets for Weight Loss
- History of Low-Carbohydrate Diets
- Trends in Macronutrient Intake & Obesity
- Low Carbohydrate Ketogenic Diet (LCKD)
- Example of 20g Carbohydrate Menu
- Diets, Carbohydrates, and Calories
- Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet (LCKD) Rationale
- The Role of Ketones
- LCKD vs Low Fat Diet: 6 Months
- Outpatient Low-Carbohydrate Diet RCTs: Weight Loss
- Joslin Diabetic Diet, 1923
- Effect of LCKD on Type 2 Diabetes
- Clinical Recommendations for LCKD

I've attended low-carb conferences in Brooklyn, NY and Nashville, TN over the past couple of years and I know this invaluable research is unknown to most non-medical people. Dr. Yancy was thorough and offer quite an eye-opening presentation that should get you excited about low-carb living all over again.


Wanna see something quite disturbing? Check out this unique and depressing obesity map of America to see just how much times have changed over the past 17 years. It's quite ASTONISHING to say the least! It makes me shudder to think what the year 2025 will look like with the amount of red (indicating average BMI of over 30 percent) very likely plastering the entire nation unless something is done to turn the tide of this epidemic.

Access a state-by-state breakdown of the obesity numbers and see how much YOUR state has changed since 1990. If this doesn't prove that we need to make better choices about how to treat the overweight and obese, then I don't know what does. Send the link to this map to everyone you know who is concerned about weight and health in the United States.


You'll recall I told you about a new low-carb web site from Jacqueline Eberstein a few months ago and that she wanted to bring back a lot of the old low-carb research that used to appear on the old version of the official Atkins web site (which has now removed those links). Well, that project is DONE and you can now access most of the lost low-carb research studies anytime. THANK YOU for doing that, Jackie!

Read this introduction to the research and then get into the good stuff by finding the links from the Journal of Nutrition & Metabolism, Metabolic Syndrome & Related Disorders, and a whole boatload of low-carb research that has been published in a variety of other scientific and medical journals. If you need to find a low-carb study, then THIS is the place to do it!

These three useful resources should keep you quite busy for a while as you expand your mind and broaden your horizons about low-carb living in these modern times. We're all in this together as we attempt to share the truth with those who need to know it!

As my friend Regina Wilshire from the "Weight Of The Evidence" blog says, "LEARN IT, LIVE IT, LOVE IT!" That's livin' la vida low-carb, baby!

That map is frightening if it's true and it probably is. I think it's both HFCS and Artificial Sweeteners that are creating and making carb and sweet and starch and flour addicts that is the problem here. Refined sugar destroys equally but like true 'speed' there are as many 'skinny' sugar addicts as there are 'fat' sugar addicts. All are being totally destroyed but in different ways.
