I highly recommend this Tom Naughton lecture. He covers the bases very well. Even if you think you know everything about metabolism, heart disease, science, fat, carbs, and casino life, these videos are worth watching.







On MDI and doing well. A1Cs range from 5.6 to 6.4. December 2016 was 6.1. 12 911's in my career; a few highs; lots of shots. Diagnosed Oct 19th, 1975.
Proliferative retinopathy March 1994, 4,000 laser, vitrectomy Oct. 2006. Vision 20/25 in right, 20/40 in left (slight cataract).

Tom is definitely fun and informative to listen to. If you have already watched Fat Head or seen is other lecture on Good Science though, a lot of the info in the lecture is the same. If you haven't watched Fat Head, then what are you waiting for? :D

I agree! Everyone should watch the documentary FAT HEAD! It is available for free viewing on Hulu (where it currently is the #1 documentary).

Tom will also be on the 2012 Low Carb Cruise!

xMenace, thank you so much for posting these. I was able to listen to the first part for only a few minutes and finally was free long enough to listen to all the parts. This was excellent! After listening to Tom's presentation I can't help but believe his conclusions are looking sound and my own thoughts about low carb, high fat, the cholesterol fiasco are lining up with his side of the data. Even Salim's way of eating (high fat, low carb, lower protein) seemed to get a very positive nod concerning health markers improving dramatically. Thank you again for posting this.
