Achieving ketosis by engaging in a very low-carbohydrate, high-fat lifestyle is an effective means of losing weight, breaking insulin and leptin resistance, reversing type 2 diabetes and fatty liver, reducing blood pressure, reversing the inflammation of visceral fat, and may even cause partial or total remission of selected cancers. So what’s the problem? The problem comes when people remain ketotic for extended periods. We know with confidence that long-term ketosis poses substantial risk for health complications because thousands of children have followed ketogenic diets over the years as a means of suppressing in...

The opioid epidemic of the last 20 years has served to illustrate the powerful addictive properties of anything that binds to opioid receptors of the human brain. Lives are ruined by opioid addiction, more than 100 deaths now occurring every day from overdose as people either take more and more to overcome the partial tolerance or new potent drugs like fentanyl make their way into street versions. Drugs such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl bind to the brain’s opioid receptors provoking a “high” while causing the user to desire more opioids as partial tolerance develops. And make no mistake: Much o...

ury Hossain Diabetes is associated with obesity, generally accompanied by a chronic state of oxidative stress and redox imbalances which are implicated in the progression of micro- and macro-complications like heart disease, stroke, dementia, cancer, kidney failure and blindness. All these complications rise primarily due to consistent high blood glucose levels. Insulin and glucagon help to maintain the homeostasis of glucose and lipids through signaling cascades. Pancreatic hormones stimulate translocation of the glucose transporter isoform 4 (GLUT4) from an intracellular location to the cell surface and facilitate th...

The consumption and wheat, grains, and sugars provokes release of blood insulin, a process that stimulates accumulation of visceral fat. Although you cannot directly view visceral fat that encircles the abdominal organs, you can see the “spare tire” or “love handles” that commonly accompany deep visceral fat. Having visceral fat is a very unhealthy factor that raise potential for type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and dementia substantially. It results from consumption of wheat, grains, and sugar, commonly developing in people who have been told that a low-fat diet is healthy. Low-fat diets are...

I’ve heard this advice countless times, as I’ll bet you have, too. I’ve also witnessed many people try it (though certainly not on my advice), only to experience modest (if any) benefits that quickly come a halt. And, of course, this advice makes no sense. “White,” of course, refers primarily to refined grain products such as breads, rolls, and bagels made with white flour, as well as sucrose table sugar. Non-white primarily refers to whole grains that are darker based on the commonly held misconception that whole grains are not just better for you, but healthy. (I’ve discussed this logi...

Up until the first half of the twentieth century, large-scale health disasters were mostly due to natural causes (earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, etc.) or infections (e.g., smallpox, influenza epidemics, cholera). But something peculiar happened as we entered the second half of the century: Health disasters due to natural causes became dwarfed by large-scale health disasters that are man-made. Here’s a list of the Six Worst U.S. Health Disasters of the Last 50 Years, mostly man-made phenomena that have exacted huge tolls: widespread disease, premature death, poorly managed (though nonetheless highly profitable fo...

In this study, we have shown that the lipid chaperones FABP4/FABP5 are critical intermediate factors in the deterioration of metabolic systems during aging. Consistent with their roles in chronic inflammation and insulin resistance in young prediabetic mice, we found that FABPs promote the deterioration of glucose homeostasis; metabolic tissue pathologies, particularly in white and brown adipose tissue and liver; and local and systemic inflammation associated with aging. A systematic approach, including lipidomics and pathway-focused transcript analysis, revealed that calorie restriction (CR) and Fabp4/5 deficiency result ...

Given the void in dietary wisdom due to the ineffectiveness and blunders of “official” dietary advice, there is no shortage of books or diet programs trying to fill that void, many wildly at odds with each other—paleo, Atkins, vegan, vegetarian, high-carb, low-carb, ketogenic, etc. The U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the USDA’s MyPlate and food pyramid, and organizations such as the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association, as well as many of the diet programs in the popular press, I believe, fail to acknowledge several fundamental principles that really need to be address...

With all the talk about reverting back to the dietary roots of our species, some may ask: Isn’t this the same as the paleo diet, the popular interpretation of diet prior to agriculture? The Wheat Belly and Undoctored lifestyle and the popular notion of a Paleolithic diet overlap substantially, but there are differences. So let’s discuss the points of difference. First of all, I am not bashing the ideas promoted by followers of the paleo concepts. The ideas they follow are much better than conventional notions of healthy eating, and wonderful results can indeed be achieved on a paleo diet. Many authors from the ...
