The UK is going LCHF!

Oh Why Can’t We Watch This in the US?

A Facebook friend from the UK sent me this message:

“Just watched a fantastic programme on BBC1, ‘The Truth About Carbs’ featuring Dr David Unwin and his diabetes reversal programme. The low carb programme has been accepted by the Royal College of GPs and is being rolled out across the UK! At long last, wonderful news! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼😃
So excited!! Can’t believe I just watched this and the announcement at the end is fantastic! 😃😃👍🏽”

Unfortunately this is a BBC ONE program and is not available in the US as a result of some legal gibberish! If you are in the UK, watch it here.

If you are in the US, just wish that they will post this on YouTube for us! And if they don;t post it on YouTube or make it available in some other way, be it. The UK will pull way ahead of the US. It will reverse type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and a host of other diseases that are caused by the consumption of a lot of carbohydrates!

The LCHF Benefits

The program is about how the LCHF (Low carbs High Fat) diet can reverse most of our modern diseases, nearly all of which are diet-induced by our high carbohydrate diets. What are the biggest offenders in our diet?

  1. Grain
  2. Sugar and other sweeteners
  3. Prepared and processed foods
  4. Too much fruits
  5. Too much high starchy veggies like potatoes
  6. Too much vegetable oils and fats
  7. Too little monounsaturated and saturated fats!
  8. Too little water
  9. Too many juices, juicing, and processing our foods away from whole foods
  10. This “eat a meal in smoothie” mania needs to stop

If you want a head start to getting healthy, follow the above 10 steps and start to get healthy!

About Angela A Stanton, Ph.D.

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist focusing on chronic pain--migraine in particular--physiology, electrolyte homeostasis, nutrition, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention, and treatment without the use of medicine. As a forever migraineur from childhood, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic variations of all voltage dependent channels, gates, and pumps (chanelopathy) that modulate electrolyte mineral density and voltage in the brain. In addition, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other variants, such as MTHFR variants of B vitamin methylation process and many others are different in the case of a migraineur from the general population. Migraineurs are glucose sensitive (carbohydrate intolerant) and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. She is working on her hypothesis that migraine is a metabolic disease. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and her helping over 5000 migraineurs successfully prevent their migraines world wide, all ages and both genders, and all types of migraines, she published the 2nd (extended) edition of her migraine book "Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How To Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medications". The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraine cause, development, and prevention, incorporating all there is to know. It includes a long section for medical and research professionals. The book is full of academic citations (over 800) to authenticate the statements she makes to make it easy to follow up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide", published on September 29, 2017. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience (culminating in Neuroeconomics) at Claremont Graduate University, fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers, certification in LCHF/ketogenic diet from NN (Nutrition Network), certification in physiology (UPEN via Coursea), Nutrition (Harvard Shool of Public Health) and functional medicine studies. Dr. Stanton is an avid sports fan, currently power weight lifting and kickboxing. For relaxation (yeah.. about a half minute each day), she paints and photographs and loves to spend time with her family of husband of 45 years, 2 sons and their wives, and 2 granddaughters.

    • It should not tick you off Vickii but rather should inspire you to lead your doctor’s viewpoint toward what you know about UK. That is what I do. It is a sufficient push–plus blogging about it is an even bigger push.
