Hannah Sutter explains how the program was biased here
as does ZOE HARCOMBE And there is a bit more from Dr Briffa

Dawn Waldron, makes sensible comments following the above articles has done her own detailed rebuttal of the Horizon program here. Fats vs Carbs: is truth really on the Horizon?

It’s sad UK ”official” medical/dietary opinion still will not understand the differences between a low carb/high protein diet and a low carb/high fat diet or that it takes time for a gut flora  based on high refined carbohydrate intake to change to a gut flora adapted to high natural fat intake. They also need to understand more about the role of resistant starch when trying to improve Weight Control and Insulin Sensitivity.

    Mycket bra artikel av Dr Briffa!

    Jag såg programmet – ända till slut ..trots att mitt blodtryck säkert var skyhögt inemellan. Det var urbota dåligt rakt igenom och man undrar vilka som sponsrat denna s.k. ‘studie’..

    Många som såg programmet kommer att tro på dessa tvillingbröder (tilllika läkare!), vars ‘studie’ visade att en sockerrik kost är helt ok medan fett är mycket farligt!!

    ”..Susan Jebb, who in 1995 co-authored a paper which concluded..” – ‘..average recorded energy intake in Britain has declined substantially as obesity rates have escalated..’ – “..so her own work fails to back up the notion that ‘it’s all about the calories, stupid’..” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2550498/


    “..There is more analysis and comment on this frustrating and damaging programme here. http://t.co/t5ZJ7Fp1NW It’s a worry that the BBC can’t muster the resources to develop a rigorous small-scale diet trial..”


    ”..Prof. Tim Noakes (one of the world’s foremost sports scientists, trained as an MD and a ‘convert’ to LCHF/Banting). I got the following very intersting link from him. It leads to a very interesting (and unsually balanced) examination of the relative merits of LCHF & carb loading for cyclists. A pity that the cycling expert on the show was apparently unaware of this..”

    Tänk så fel det kan bli när man räknar kalorier istället för näringsvärde!!
