A World-Record Holder for 100-Mile Races Says The High-Fat Diet Transformed His Body

Many experts think that by eating a high-fat or keto diet, it’s possible to become a more efficient fat burner and get more energy from ketones. Intermittent fasting may have a similar effect, helping people become better at fueling themselves from fat. Ultramarathon world-record holder Zach Bitter recently explained how changing his diet helped improve his performance. […]

Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Sales Go Up

Out: protein and fewer carbs. In: unicorn-shaped marshmallows. It’s a ‘permissible indulgence’ To get consumers to eat cereal, big food companies are doubling down on sugary goodness. Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes from General Mills Inc. and Chocolate Frosted Flakes from Kellogg Co. are among the industry’s latest answers to the persistent decline in cereal sales. For […]

Triglycerides cross the blood–brain barrier and induce central leptin and insulin receptor resistance

Resistance at the brain receptors for leptin and insulin has been associated with increased feeding, obesity and cognitive impairments. The causal agent for central resistance is unknown but could be derived from the blood. Here we postulate whether hypertriglyceridemia, the major dyslipidemia of the metabolic syndrome, could underlie central leptin and insulin resistance. We used […]

Top Cardiologist Exposes The Great Cholesterol Con

It is well known that total cholesterol becomes less of a risk factor or not at all for all-cause and cardiovascular (CV) mortality with increasing age, but as little is known as to whether low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), one component of total cholesterol, is associated with mortality in the elderly, we decided to investigate this […]

Got Gout? Eat Keto!

More evidence about the anti-inflammatory effects of a ketogenic diet. Now this is shown for gout. In the past this has been attributed to a “rich diet” as in meats but the evidence is showing otherwise. In fact, the cause is more likely sugar and refined carbohydrates. Aging and lipotoxicity are two major risk factors […]

Oxidative Stress Inhibits Healthy Adipose Expansion

Recent studies have emphasized the association of adipose oxidative stress (Fat ROS) with the pathogenesis of metabolic disorders in obesity. However, the causal roles of Fat ROS in metabolic disturbances in vivoremain unclear because no mouse model has been available in which oxidative stress is manipulated targeting adipocytes. In this research, we generated two models of […]
