[Image: A (fake) tweet from gary taubes (a low-carb-diet-promoting, beef industry bootlicker):
My three heart attacks, two minor strokes, the fact that I only take a shit every three or four days and my LDL levels being absolutely through the roof is NOT an indictment of my meat-heavy, ketogenic diet. These ailments are perfectly normal and to be expected for a man my age]

There’s some good information here and solid science journalism. Kinda bloated and redundant, though, but I say that about most non-fiction. =P

Secret to Balancing Calories, Activity and Nutrition for Health
While we face the amplifying affects of COVID-19 on our innate health, with a greatly strained NHS, official health bodies do anything but provide the information we need for optimal health. However, independent organisation Public Health Collaboration have published a guide to healthy eating, which addresses the incorrect advice given by Public Health England.

The Oxfords 1960s Rock Band Reborn as Amazon 2020 Top Hit
In a pandemic year of uncertainties, The Oxfords found certainty that dreams can truly come true – eventually – as the 1960s group was reborn at the top of the Pop Oldies chart on Amazon. After an over 50-year break up the band found themselves reunited and at the top spot 55 years since their very first success. “A Classic Philly 60’s Band” remained in the number one spot for four consecutive…

Know Nothings, conspiratorialism and Pastel Q
Tumblr media
As the Qanon prophecies fail and the cult-members struggle to resolve their cognitive dissonance, it's a good time to revisit the history of paranoid, conspiratorial political movements in American history - the "paranoid style" that has dominated since the Revolution.
After all, the very first skirmishes of the US war of independence were based on a conspiracy theory: that the levy on tea was a prelude to a sellout of the colonists to transnational mercantalist interests. US politics have always been conspiratorial.
I found Zachary Karabell's Politico history of the Know Nothing party especially useful, as it tells the story of what happens when surging, paranoid, fractious political movements implode.
The American Party was a secret 19th century organization founded on a conspiracy theory: that Irish immigrants were secretly planning a takeover of the US on behalf of the Pope.
The American Party believed that the Irish were coming for their jobs, and for the very culture that defined America. They circulated rumors about nuns engaging in ritual infanticide and sex-trafficking teen girls. The Qanon parallels are strong.
The American Party (later the Native American Party) started off in the shadows. If anyone asked a member about the organization, they'd say "I know nothing," which is how they came to be called the "Know Nothing Party."
The Know Nothings became a political force thanks to the vacuum left behind by the implosion of the Whig party. The KNs promulgated anti-immigrant laws that promised preferential access to jobs for native-born Americans.
But the KNs were unhinged, riven by infighting, and, after a decade and a half, they basically vanished from the American political landscape, mostly absorbed into the new Republican party.
Their legacy is mixed - on the one hand, the simmering xenophobia expressed as concern for jobs and culture on the right; on the other, the roots of the trade union movement.
For Karabell, the Qanon colonization of the Republican Party is an echo of the rise - and fall - of the Know Nothings, as a mix of conspiratorialism, legitimate anti-corruption grievance, and xenophobia triggers a collapse.
Dismissals of conspiratorial movements - for example, stories that blame Big Tech's "algorithmic radicalization" mind-control rays for conspiracism - treat conspiracies as being rooted in ideas, rather than the material world.
Tumblr media
That's a mistake - and it's one that gives conspiracists far too much credit. Conspiracies don't take hold because Alex Jones or Marjorie Taylor Greene are so good at explaining them that they cloud their victims' minds and bypass their critical faculties.
After all, Jones and Greene are fucking idiots, not super-geniuses.
What they tap into - what predicts the rise of conspiracy - is experiencing real conspiracies that hurt you and the people that you love (another word for "real conspiracy" is "corruption").
A really striking essay about this is Snowden Stieber's "This Secret Message Could Change Your Life!" - about evangelical Christianity, wellness culture, conspiratorialism and "pastel Q" (the Instagram-spread, female-coded Qanon flavor).
I was especially struck by the connection between "alt-nutrition" philosophies and conspiratorialism. The thing is, our food advice really has been corrupt: as Gary Tabues wrote about in his 2002 New York Times essay, "What if It's All Been a Big Fat Lie?"
Taubes describes how the familiar "food pyramid" that advised eating lots and lots of carbohydrates while eliminating fats had been bought-and-paid-for by Big Ag, and how that advice had triggered an obesity epidemic.
Taubes's essay hit me square in the gut. I was a fat kid, with fat grandparents, and a mom who'd fought her weight all her life. As I hit my thirties, I was assiduously eating pasta and bread (with margarine) and other low-fat, high-carb food, and getting fatter and fatter.
After reading Taubes, I switched to eating high-fat, high-protein, near-zero-carb. After a couple weeks, all my cravings disappeared. A year later, I was 100lbs lighter - without any additional exercise, on a diet of steak, cheese, and cream lattes.
I've gained about 50lbs of that back in the intervening years, 20+ of it in the past year. It's a source of real anxiety for me. I've got serious body issues, weight-gain-triggered depression that I manage, even as I exercise daily and count calories.
I couldn't keep up my all-steak diet - too much worry about my ageing body and the roasting planet - but its lesson stuck with me: corporations bought off the science of nutrition and made me miserable for decades and decades.
As Steiber writes, the people who fall into Pastel Q have had similar experiences: switching from the food and lifestyle choices that corporations and governments promote, and experiencing life-changing benefits.
The wellness movement isn't just a way for huxters to sell you supplements: it's also a response to corruption in dietary advice, driven by the commercial priorities of the increasingly monopolized packaged food, fast food, and ag industries.
Likewise, the Q conspiracy about rampant, elite, unaccountable child abuse is rooted in the real child abuse rings inside of "the Roman Catholic Church, Southern Baptists, Independent Baptists, Kundalini Yoga-centered 3HO, Shambhala Buddhism, Boy Scouts of America, college football programs, USA Gymnastics, high school sports, police departments, and US federal agencies."
Q may implode like the Know Nothings, but the corruption that gives conspiracy theories explanatory power will continue to spur new conspiratorial movements.

“The Case Against Sugar” a book review.
Gary Taubes is probably the world of nutrition’s smartest person. In his book “The Case Against Sugar “, Taubes covers centuries of material on sugar, from its origins to today’s cultural knowledge of this substance.
Taubes research is exhaustive. He starts his work on the ills of sugar and how it has been the root cause of every ailment from obesity to diabetes. Taubes then claims that sugar may also be responsible for our dental caries and cancer.
He leads the reader through the corruption of the sugar industry’s efforts to keep sugar at the front of “good nutrition”. He concludes his case against sugar by leaving the decision to limit intake of this harmful substance squarely with the reader. “It really takes a personal decision”, he says.
What with the current obesity crisis, this book is a must read for every parent, student and individual. The world will be a better place for doing so. -Dave Compton

Happy New Year
I didn’t post yesterday but I ran 3.5 miles yesterday.  Avg pace 14′33″  not bad since I missed all week due to work. I am going to do better in 2021. I keep saying that.  I have been staying strictly keto for  three days. I have not been able to find affordable exogenous ketones that taste decent. I don’t know if it is worth the money honestly.  My word for the year is REDUCE.  So maybe I do it without the exogenous ketones.... 
Tumblr media
I did change up what I listen to while I run. My husband has been a huge Joe Rogan fan and goes on and on about Joe says this Joe says that- which immediately means - I  ain’t listening to that.  But on a car trip home I put on his podcast because I don’t like listening to my husband’s music and he doesn’t like mine (somehow in 24 yrs together we have turned into opposites).  I ended up really enjoying the podcast.  So I listened to the health edition #904 Gary Taubes- he talked about sugar in diets and how we have been led astray by the public health diet recommendations.  So I drank the “koolaid”  and now I am more aware of sugar. Not white granulated sugar but every form that is snuck in to every food. I am in a hard spot because guidelines say I need to practice medicine a certain way and here this guy is making alot of sense. Then I am reading Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog  by Grant Peterson - so I am all in Keto Good - government recommendations bad kick.  Someone stop me before I start wearing tin foil hats.  So in my 50+ minutes of jog/walk- I decided that I am going to give myself one year- keto, sugar free, stick to it in the name of research - check my blood levels and see how I am in one year.  If after one year I have improved greatly I will feel better about sharing with my patients - BTW it is EXTREMELY difficult for me to tell patients how to lose weight when I am overweight.  I feel like a fraud.  I talk honestly to them about the struggles cause I am right there with them.  So I am slightly excited about my self absorbed research.  
My daughter has started live streaming on Twitch so I am finding myself watching her to encourage her and that is alot of downtime and watching her has me interested in lots of video games I would like to try - but wouldn’t that be adding and not reducing stuff in my life?  So I guess I will just watch her and support her.  Today I am charting and going to purchase candles for the year (REDUCE, right?)  then tomorrow I am setting up our 2021 budget to help us reduce debt and hopefully stress.  I hope everyone has a Happy New Year and 2021 is kinder than 2020.
Weighed in 247 lbs ------- ready to reduce that number for sure!

‘I use my keto experience to help my Arabic community’
Dorsaf lost weight and got better energy, sleep, and skin quality after starting a keto diet. Now she pays it forward by teaching her Arabic community about the health benefits of keto.
Way to go, Dorsaf!
In this interview, which has been edited for length and clarity, Dorsaf shares her journey in her own words.
What’s your name, age, and where do you live? My name is Dorsaf. I am 40 years old and from Tunisia, but I live in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
How did you discover keto? In 2018, I faced health issues associated with weight gain and insulin resistance. At the age of 38, I felt very old and sick all the time. I have celiac disease, and I haven’t always had the energy to take care of my diet to avoid consequences from the disorder.
In the beginning of 2019, I heard about the ketogenic diet and immediately I started to learn more about it.
My journey has been successful, and surprisingly, it has taken me back to my original profession with nutrition. These days, I use my keto experience to help my Arabic community to learn about this way of eating, because there isn’t as much information in Arabic as there is in English.
In what ways has your health improved? My energy level has increased, I no longer have chronic anemia, my skin looks healthier, and I have a better immune function and sleep quality. I went from 181 pounds (82 kilos) to 146 pounds (66 kilos), and I went from a UK size 18 to 12.
What does a typical day of eating look like for you now? I mostly focus on fresh, natural food. I avoid eating out and processed foods, even if their label says that they’re keto friendly. These days, I eat two meals per day and follow a 16:8 intermittent fasting regimen.
Have you made any mistakes on your journey? At first, I didn’t focus properly on food quality, so that caused hair loss.
Do you think exercise is necessary for success? I don’t recommend exercising at the start of the low-carb journey. However, after our system becomes adapted, then exercising is beneficial to build muscles and strength. I learned to focus on HIIT activities rather than cardio because of its high efficiency.
What are your top three tips for people starting keto? My top three tips for beginners are:
Don’t start your journey with long fasts. Instead, let your body adapt to the new way of eating first.
Commit to eating a lot of leafy veggies every day.
Don’t stress out about weighing yourself. It’s better to focus on the journey and any size changes.
Keto information in Arabic
Here’s a leaflet about the keto diet, in Arabic.
Congrats on your success Dorsaf! Thanks for sharing your story with us. I appreciate your top three tips — they are great advice for people getting started. Keep up the great work with you own journey and helping others! Best, / Dr. Bret Scher

From the best-selling author of "Why We Get Fat, "a groundbreaking, eye-opening expose that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick. Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever; obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans' history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss; and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions

Sorry gang, but carbohydrates pack the pounds on me. I know this is anecdotal, but I’ve packed on 5 lbs this month. How? I ate trail mix, candy, bread and just about everything else the “experts” tell you to eat in moderation. I used both hands to shovel this crap into my mouth.
I’m told the reason I do that is because I have no will power. But there’s something else going on here. Carbohydrates beget carbohydrates. And more of them. They make me hungry. Now I’d tell you that this too is anecdotal, but there’s an enormous amount of evidence (think peer related studies) that suggests otherwise.
Pick up a book by Jason Fung, M.D., go to DietDoctor. com, study anything by Gary Taubes, pick up “The Big Fat Surprise “. All the evidence is there. Carbohydrates are making us fat and costing us billions every year!
