Comment on The Truth About High Fat Diets by Arne Weise http://sciencedrivennutrition.com/truth-high-fat-diets/#comment-9138 Tue, 09 May 2017 15:11:14 +0000 http://sciencedrivennutrition.com/?p=1082#comment-9138 Laughable at best how selectable you are in putting together thus article. I didn’t see you discussing insulin anywhere. I agree that there’s no metabolic advantage, but that is pretty useless information since the human body is not a closed system. The science should never be settled. Talking about closing doors on something because a couple of studies got published is a dangerous attitude given the percentage of what we take as fact today are proven incorrect in just 10 years… I agree with previous comment, If you were truly interested in progress you should focus on why does LCHF work so good for so many? Insulin, anyone, insulin??

No one is saying that they do not work, but the problem our society has is that people believe that this is the only way to lose weight and keep it off, which is simply not true, both through scientific data and real-world application. Excellent article, Brad.

If your explanation is correct, than why were the greatest weight losses seen in the Ornish Arm in the Dansinger study? Also, how is my extrapolation incorrect? Data through several layers (Epidemiologicak, mechanistic, and intervention)all point to the same conclusion. I think you should read the rest of my work for the context. Low carb diets can work, but they do not show meaningful superiority over other diets. People can choose what they adhere to best and get better results than choosing an equally effective dietary modality they don’t adhere to.

They don’t work via some magical property or via many of the claims made, but they do work in real living scenarios very similar to other diets

Comment on The Truth About High Fat Diets by Dr.Garry Lee http://sciencedrivennutrition.com/truth-high-fat-diets/#comment-9114 Mon, 17 Apr 2017 20:33:54 +0000 http://sciencedrivennutrition.com/?p=1082#comment-9114 Brad, I’m a 67y old retd doctor. From fat family with diabetes in uncle and grandmother (when few had it). Struggled all my life with wgt, losing 40lb, back on within a year etc. Low carb high fat diet changed that. -40lb x 3y no regain no hunger. 10%carbs 18% pro 72% fat. So much for theory.

Comment on The Truth About High Fat Diets by George Henderson (@puddleg) http://sciencedrivennutrition.com/truth-high-fat-diets/#comment-9113 Mon, 17 Apr 2017 20:32:09 +0000 http://sciencedrivennutrition.com/?p=1082#comment-9113 So, all this effort, and you have failed to explain or even suggest an explanation as to why people lose weight on low carbohydrate, high fat diets.
Your extrapolation from diet trials such as A thru Z is flawed because these results include all the people who stopped following the diets and went back to eating what they used to eat. This is called intention to treat analysis (ITT). The more closely people followed the diet instructions, the greater the weight loss in the low carb arm over the low fat, calorie restricted arm. This is called per protocol analysis (PP). Note that the low carb arm is usually ad lib (don’t try to restrict calories) and the low fat arm advised to restrict calories.
If you follow individuals in these trials, some loose large amounts of body fat, and these are more likely to be in the low carb arms, but ITT and the use of averages obscures these successes.
Why is the low carb arm the better place to be? One reason is the the combination of protein and fat and fibre is more satiating than the combination of protein and carbohydrate and fibre due to its effect on the gut hormone PYY. Another is that ketones and the physiological response to starvation which ketosis approximates tend to suppress appetite. And another is simply that we can dump carbohydrate foods from the modern diet with less loss of essential nutrition and more avoidance of foods that stimulate over-eating than is the case avoiding fat, which is the argument that John Yudkin used in his low-carb diet books.
Carbohydrates are not stored more easily than fat, but they are the physiological trigger to store dietary fat, and they contribute carbon to the elongation of fatty acids to adapt them into the preferred storage forms of oleate, palmitate, and stearate.
Instead of trying to convince us that LCHF diets do not promote weight loss when they obviously do, it would be a better use of the energy you expend on research to explain why they do. If you truly find the arguments you have looked at do not provide an explanation, then what have you overlooked?

Most of my pre’s don’t have it any more and I don’t seem to miss it. Maybe its just hype?
