Bringing short. positive episodes to the Low Carb community highlighting success stories from individuals and practitioners as well as tips and tricks and some great recipes. We know your time is precious so our aim is to get you out of the door in less than 20 minutes.

We hope to never have to insert commercials in our podcasts, but the work we do to put on these educational events, build the community and develop and maintain the Clinical Guidelines is not sustainable without your support.  Please consider becoming a patron.  We have now introduced tiers for Loyal Patrons to get early access to podcast episodes as well as really cool bonus material. Even the smallest contribution helps! Please, also, subscribe to our show on Stitcher or iTunes to help us reach more people.

We caught up with Prof. Tim Noakes again recently and after asking him to describe briefly again how he got started with LCHF and a little about his successful defence against the malicious charges brought against him by the HPSCA, the conversation turned to the subject of Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs).  I had recently heard a fascinating talk at the the Low Carb Denver conference by Dr. Chris Knobbe about PUFAs.  He presented a compelling case that PUFAs were at the root of all metabolic disease.  While I agree that they definitely seem to have a profound effect on our metabolic health, I do not agree that it is all about PUFAs and that carbohydrates do not have an influence at all. So I put this question to Prof. and a very interesting discussion ensued.

It's always such a pleasure and an enlightening experience to spend time in conversation with Prof. Noakes and we look forward with great anticipation to his presentation at our upcoming LowCarbUSA® - San Diego 2020 event at the end of August which is now going to be totally virtual.
