Dr. Eenfeldt of DietDoctor.com
gave a talk at the recent Ancestral Health Symposium in California, on the rationale of the current low-carb, high-fat diet (LCHF) so popular in his home country of Sweden
. It’s very understandable to the general public and is a good introduction to low-carb eating. The entire YouTube video is 55 minutes; if you’re pressed for time, skip the 10-minute Q&A at the end.
He also discusses the benefits of LCHF eating for his patients with diabetes.
If you reduce carbohydrate, you’re going to replace it with either protein, fat, or both. As Dr. Eenfeldt recommends, the Ketogenic Mediterranean and Low-Carb Mediterranean Diets replace carbs more with fats than protein.
