Being one of the drivers of the low-carb revolution Obesity is an insulin signalling disorder Fat is the one nutrient that doesn’t stimulate insulin Sex hormones play a huge role in obesity Conventional nutrition wisdom is feeding us the wrong information Our parents’ generation was taught “If you don’t want to be fat, you had to eat carbs.” The obesity prevalence has tripled since 1980 What is cephalic phase secretion? The misinterpretation that obesity is caused by eating Experimenting with intermittent fasting and time-restricted eating Do you have a carbohydrate addiction?
