Appearance on Evil Sugar Radio Podcast & Book Update
My book is not currently on sale, but it will be very soon. I juggled with selling the current version that was rushed a bit for inclusion in the bundle vs. waiting to update and expand it. I decided on the latter so as not to have different versions out there. I'll announce here, or subscribe to my newsletter for updates!
A little while back I recorded a podcast with Antonio Valladares and Scott Kustes of Evil Sugar Radio. It airs today. We discuss my book, Restriction Addiction, as well as TWICHOO and Gary Taubes. We also discuss a bit of paleo craziness. It was a lot of fun and I hope you'll enjoy!
Edit: Apparently over on the website someone left a comment challenging my representation of Stefansson's all meat diet. From my response:
“During the first 2 days his diet approximated that of the Eskimos, as reported by Krogh and Krogh (3), except that he took only one-third as much carbohydrate. The protein accounted for 45 per cent of his food calories. The intestinal disturbance began on the 3rd day of this diet. During the next 2 days he took much less protein and more fat so that he received about 20 per cent of his calories from protein and 80 per cent from fat. In these two days his intestinal condition became normal without medication. Thereafter the protein calories did not exceed 25 per cent of the total for more than 1 day at a time. The high percentage of calories from protein may have been a factor
in the production of the diarrhea. “
This is part of the issue with LC propaganda. Inuit diet was 45% protein/55% fat. This isn't Krogh and Krogh, but it cites it and I've linked to this a couple of times now. I'd send out a hat tip if I remembered which commenter brought this to my attention so long ago.
"Krogh and Krogh have analyzed lean seal meat and found it to contain 6 to 10 per cent of fat. According to their data the average daily food partition is about 280 gm. of protein, 135 gm. of fat, and 54 gm. of carbohydrate of which the bulk is derived from the glycogen of the meat eaten. "
