I’ve tried pushing the “model” diet on FReepers for years.
Cocaine, Marlboro Lights, and Tab.
If you suffer obesity or low energy, this is the most important video for you to watch and study:
Dr. Chris Knobbe: Diseases of Civilization
I experienced low energy early last year and radically started reading food labels and making changes. I needed to avoid all forms of vegetable and seed oils and I found it in most everything from breads to jarred condiments. I started using all the things we were told not to use such as butters, lard, beef tallow, and was told not to count calories. Came to find out via Dr. Knobbe that the oils high in Omega-6 interfered with the mitochondria in our cells which drives down our energy levels. Eating all these distilled vegetable oils is like throwing sand in our cell’s carburetor (mitochondria). After one year, my energy level is twice what it was and my mental focus and clarity has greatly improved.
But there’s a learning curve to know which foods to buy and to learn how to make meals from scratch. It’s worth it.
I don’t count calories, don’t count carbs, none of that. Just watch my oils.
Watch Chris Knobbe’s presentation and start by making some pancakes using only butter oils in the batter, enjoy your food.
I do watch my sugars though. Monk fruit powder is amazing.
I see my internist in about a week. I’m going to ask.
I eat healthy and exercise (diet and exercise regimen approved by all my various doctors [I have a bunch], and I’m rather strict), but as a result of medication I must take, my blood glucose always runs high (because it’s medication-induced, and is under good control, I don’t get the label “pre-diabetic” or “diabetic”), and I carry some extra weight.
Five years ago, my doctors predicted that as a result of my medical treatment, I’d gain a bunch of weight and become diabetic, but as a result of my efforts, it hasn’t happened. But this medication, added to all the others could possibly lower my weight to closer to “healthy” and my blood glucose to normal.
At least for folks like me, this could have real value.
And maybe I could go back to having a glass of wine with my dinner a couple of times a week. ;-)
Discipline is a virtue, but discipline applied to the wrong kind of problem can be harmful and an expression of stubbornness and even fanaticism. And most health issues are a complex mix of genetics, luck, and personal choices. The essential role for disciple may then be to go to the doctor, follow instructions, and take you medicine. For the aged and ill, a crash diet and an exercise binge to address obesity can be hard to apply and problematic in results. The best results come from providing competent, individualized medical advice and care.
I learned I was prediabetic with fatty liver three years ago. I had the CAC test a year ago, score was 6. I’ve been taking Koncentrated K and D3 for two years. I’ve read it can reverse calcium deposits. I wish I new what my score was three years ago.
Supplement with vitamin K-2 to remove Calcium from soft tissue and direct it to bone and teeth?
cute but there is a lot more to it than that.
some of the foods we eat create a big problem with fat storage and burning proteins.
Carb, high fructose corn syrup, and other manufactured oils are all problematic.
even children with all of the energy they have are becoming obese, and not just because of video games. TV and video games have been around for a long time. We are seeing something much worse. thank you Con Agra
Actually, what you write is true FOR MOST. For some, you cannot lose. It has to do with hormones. I am on hormone treatments to lower my T. Since I started 4 years ago, I cannot lose an ounce. I was sick for 20+ days recently and only drank electrolytes and ate a can of soup a day. I lost exactly -0-. Before this, my weight fluctuated by the seasons. Winter I gained, with increased activity in the spring it came off. I still ride my bike for an hour a day, but when your system is whacked it can make you skinny for some, and fat for others depending.
This drug is sold as Ozempic for type 2 diabetes. It’s a weekly subcutaneous shot that I stick in my leg. I have lost weight steadily since I started taking it, without really trying to. I got alarmed at the weight loss and asked my doctor what was causing it - was afraid I had cancer or something. He assured me that this is normal for Ozempic, especially when used with Jardiance. Last visit he told me that Ozempic was going to be sold as a weight loss drug, in higher doses than I use.
Well I can state that it works for me, with no side effects that I am aware of. May have to change my screen name eventually.
He's definitely not a fan of industrial seed oils, but covers much more, including the concept of "food reward". To top it off, he is a Seattle resident!
Actually not true and if you read the article instead of pontificating you might have learned something
Metformin was a game changer for my Dad who has mild diabetes. He’s in his 90’s now. My mom wasn’t prescribed it although her blood work was worse. She died before she was 70.
Weight loss is simple math. If you take in more calories than you burn you will gain weight. If you take in less calories than you burn, you will lose weight.
Simplified: Eat less and get your butt off the couch!
This can cause effects such as eating less and gaining fat, as well as exercising more and gaining fat, or fatigue such as increased exercise while dieting becomes less practical.
Application can be complex.
I find it interesting that you claim that I need to read the article (which I did) and what I posted was, “not true.” Please explain the difference between what I posted at #6 and the first sentence of the article?
In the simplest terms, obesity is the product of a body’s energy output being less than its energy input. But in reality, there’s nothing simple about this complex and mysterious disease.

The first sentence of the article is belied by the second sentence of the article and then the rest of the article.
