Is There A Sugar Connection To COVID-19?

A Visual Guide to the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus (carbwarscookbooks.com)

“The virus spike may camouflage itself with sugar molecules. They flex and sway, potentially blocking the antibodies from attaching to the virus, neutralizing it.” There you have it, folks. There IS a sugar connection to coronavirus deaths that could explain why those who are obese or diabetic are much more likely to die from it.

Eureka (Part 2)

Rates-of-obesity-in-the-United-States-2010

How did we become the sickest and most medicated people in the industrialized world while paying twice as much for healthcare? We know what the problem is (inflammation). We know when it started (the late ‘70s). We know where it happened first (North America). The missing piece of the puzzle is what are we doing to cause it?

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN ARTICLE CLAIMING SURGERY CURES DIABETES.

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN ARTICLE CLAIMING SURGERY CURES DIABETES.

The July, 2017 Scientific American Magazine featured an article about how Bariactric surgery cures diabetes. They invited comments and I couldn’t let the opportunity pass without a rebuttal. Below is my comment. You can check the next issue to see if they printed it or not.. Re, Scientific American July 2017, p. 61. “Operation: Diabetes.” There is a much, much easier way to “stop diabetes.” Most type 2 diabetics can normalize their blood sugar and reduce or eliminate their medications in 3 days with a…

TURKEY CRACKLIN’S

The best thing EVER to do with Thanksgiving leftovers! Reserve any extra skin or lumps of fat from the neck and body openings when preparing your holiday turkey for roasting. After your gorgeous, golden-skinned turkey has been presented, admired, carved, and devoured, don’t throw it out; you still have the best part left! Cut away the skin from the back before tossing the carcass in a pot for making bone broth. Slice the skin into strips or squares and spread them flat on a greased sheet pan, adding any reserved fat and skin. If you prefer flat pieces, you can set…

SUGAR IN NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

Sugar Love was the subject of the August, 2013 issue of National Geographic. It is indeed sweet to finally see a major publication echoing the message some of us have been preaching for years! When I wrote Carb Wars; Sugar is the New Fat, in 2007, I was called a extremist (among other things). You can read the cover story online here, but I’d like to get a copy to frame and put on my wall! And several more to pass out to the people I care about,…

VALIDATION: Peter Reinhart

   Gluten-free products, recipes, and cookbooks are everywhere these days, but most of them just sub high-carb starches like potato, corn, tapioca, and rice for wheat, rye, and barley. The cookbook above is different. You can’t read the subtitle very well here, but it says, “80 Low-carb Recipes that Offer Solutions for Celiac Disease, Diabetes, and Weight Loss.” It was written by Peter Reinhart and Denene Wallace. Peter Reinhart is a world-class expert on bread and baking. Mario Batali called him the Leonardo da Vinci of bread. He has written nine books, including The Bread Baker’s Apprentice,…

FINALLY: A PUBLIC FORUM TO DEBATE THE MERITS OF LOW CARB!

default image

In the talk he gave on last year’s cruise, Tom Naughton suggested a way to bring the obesity epidemic to a screeching halt: one of us should sue Dr. Mary Vernon for malpractice. It was just such a scenario that led to a dramatic change in the eating habits of the Swedish people. Dr. Anna Dahlqvist was forced to defend her practice of treating diabetic patients with a low-carb diet after a pair of dietitians reported her to the authorities. They accused her of harming…

Better Late than Never: Advice About Normal Blood Sugar From The ADA

default image

I was astonished to see the ADA logo at the top of an article titled, “Eight Tips for Super Blood Sugar Control,” in the May 24th issue of the Diabetes Health newsletter. If this was actually published with the approval of the ADA (and not another prank from Dr. Feinman*), it signals a turn-around of galactic proportions. The author, Clay Wirestone, even recommend reading the books of Gary Taubes and (are you sitting down?), Dr. Bernstein! When I was under contract to write a low-carb book for the ADA, they told me I could select anyone I wanted to write the…
