We all love carbohydrates...
Myself included, but after 50 years of extensive research trying to discover what foods truly enhance our bodies and life expectancy, I cant think of any other way to say it … carbohydrates are poisonous to the human body!
WHAT? I know it sounds outrageous especially since the media, celebrities and even Government recommendations tell you differently. My goal is to present the cold hard FACTS about carbohydrates and prove what you have been told is WRONG!
In simple terms, their research is seriously flawed and my books provide a detailed analysis as to why. I have been were you are! I was a vegetarian for 3 years hopelessly trying to convince myself that I was being healthy, while the effects on my body were telling a more morbid story.
In the books you will find on this site, you will learn about my life's work and my own painstaking research and discoveries about nutrition, health and longevity. I will teach you how to control your bodyweight with ease, how to lengthen your life and more importantly, how you can eliminate many of the diseases that we come to expect from living in this world today.
You will never have to hear the word “diet” again! I have carefully outlined a new lifestyle that still includes carbohydrates. Yes! You can eat any type of carb you like as they all turn into pure sugar in your blood stream BUT portion control is the key. You can still have your favorite candy bar as long as you follow my portion recommendations; all of this and more is explained throughout the books.
Check out my eBooks in the above drop down (navigation bar) and you will get detailed information as to their content and take the steps today, to optimize your health, longevity and weight. With my Low Carb Diet Weight Loss Plan!
PS.. Keep an eye on this site for my latest book, Environmental Pollutants and Weight Control, it will be here soon!
In 1992 I further developed the Caltrac which was originally designed at the University of Wisconson. It was a revolutionary tool to help people determine how many calories they burned each day through movement. From this I developed my 100/100 plan as a way of using both exercise and dieting to help lose weight.
The Caltrac helped to debunk the myth that overweight people ate less calories than normal weight people. While people may have thought they were correctly counting calories the truth was that they either miscounted or didn’t count calories were they should have. The Caltrac gave them an accurate calorie count to help them lose weight.
One of my main interests is how environmental pollutants effects peoples health and body weight regulation. There is a lot of evidence that suggests that there are specific organic pollutants that affect the obesity epidemic. These chemicals can affect multiple pathways in the body the effect body fat storage and production.
Soy products and Soy supplements appears to be a major problem because of the phytoestrogens mimicking the action of estrogen. We are discovering that people are getting fatter because of consuming these products. This should be a major factor for parents feeding their children soy products.
The pesticide DDT also mimics estrogen and its effects leading to health problems from exposure to these chemicals over the last several decades. The use of these products in industry and food supplies coincides with the Obesity epidemic.
Some argue that humans cannot form fat from non-fat sources a process known as lipogenesis. This is not true as research shows that carbohydrate overfeeding can form as much as 170 grams per day of new fat with 98% forming in adipose tissue and 2% in the liver.
One of the basic theories of controlling food intake is the concept of food partitioning; food can either be stored or burned. Carbohydrates set up a certain hormonal and nutritional profile that forces the food to be stored, primarily as body fat. Carbs shut down the pathway as it is burning, and cause the fuel to be no longer available causing people to overeat.

Exercise and calorie burning are just as important as monitoring how many calories you consume. We must remember that you body does not monitor the amount of calories you consume; it only monitors the calories you burn. If your calories are getting stored then they are not available to be burned, calories that cannot be burned as created by eating carbohydrates.
Dr. Greg Ellis, in this video, goes over Oprah’s frequent guest Dr. Mehmet Oz. Dr. Oz is a surgeon and has limited, if any training in nutrition highlighted from the fact that he gets most of his information wrong. Dr. Oz agrees with the established “no meat no fat it’s bad for you” theory and he’s got it all wrong.
Unlike Dr. Oz my profession and area of expertise is nutrition; I am a certified nutritionist and nutritional biochemist. Dr. Oz has bought into the “establishment” view of nutrition (no meat or fat), instead of doing any independent thinking or research. Dr. Oz is one of many influential public figures perpetuating the myth of a low carbohydrate diet is bad for you.
There is a multitude of new and great information out there revolving around a low carbohydrate diet. On my Facebook page I was asked a question about insulin resistance and if being on a low carb diet can make you more or less resistant to insulin. In this video I will review how your body reacts to this exact situation and how common misconceptions can lead to quick and wrong assumptions.
The only real condition that can make your body become insulin resistant is obesity, it causes the cells to lose their responsiveness to insulin. The truth of a low carb diet is that you will become more insulin sensitive making your cells much more responsive to low levels of insulin.
Cheat days will be more damaging to your overall health than you think, choosing a low carbohydrate diet is making an effort to remove harmful substances to your body. A “cheat day” could potentially unravel all the progress you have made depending on how much you “cheat”.
Why do you feel awful after a cheat day? The cells of your body have biochemical pathways to process carbohydrates, and a different set to process fat. When you go on a low carbohydrate diet you increase the amount of enzymes to process fats and vice versa for carbohydrates, causing your body to be in a sense fat adapted. If you abruptly change your diet on a “cheat day” you could upset the new balance of your metabolism and unravel weeks or even months of progress.
Isometric exercise has been proven to be the best form of exercise for building muscle. The reason for this is that the best stimulus is maximal force production. No other method allows this to occur as they are all part of the fatigue model of exercise meaning by the time you get to the, say, 10th repetition and even if you can’t make it the muscle is now producing less force than maximal even though you can’t move it because the muscle is tired.
Isometric exercise is pushing against an immovable object, contracting your muscle to maximum output. This exercise cannot be done often, only once every 7 – 10 days of maximally contracted force. Isometrics will increase your muscle size and strength.
Today there are an endless amount of dietary plans, when in reality the only successful was to lose weight is to restrict calories. One of today’s most outrageous diets is “Eat Right For Your Blood Type.” The idea that blood type has anything to do with your metabolism and rate of caloric burning is, to say the least farfetched.
There is no question that a low carbohydrate diet rids your body of so called “toxic” foods that may affect your digestive tract. The blood type diet has no sound medical evidence, including my own research into the national library of medicine.
My lifes mission is to advocate a low carbohydrate, high fat diet, because of my mostly meat diet I don’t consume any fiber. Although many health “professionals” argue the importance of fiber in your diet, I have lived without it for the past 20 years without any consequences to my health at all.
Agricultural is a fairly new concept to human beings, the diet of human beings from the creation was basically and all meat diet because the correct vegetation was not available. Many more cultures of this century continue to consume only meat with no real health issues.
