    An interesting video as always from you and Dr Teresa Dean.
    It was interesting to note that in the US you have the same “fad” diets as in Europe, i.e. gluten free, where there is an absolute obsession and of course the price for these foods is very high, thereby complicating matters for those who actually do suffer from Coeliac disease.
    It was also interesting to note that a low carb diet is more efficient than a low fat one, which is logical when you think about it, but then we all tend to latch onto the word “fat” as opposed to thinking what fat and carbohydrate actually mean.
    I have a theory about losing weight, which is probably totally erroneous but which I’d like to put to you anyway. I’ve always thought as people don’t get fat/put on weight in 2 days then obviously we can’t lose weight that way, so, instead of drastically reducing our intake to the infamous 1500-2000 cal intake per day, but to gradually reduce the negative things in our diet, 1) to prevent anxiety (caused by drastic elimination or reduction of a particular foodstuff) and 2) to help our bodies become accustomed to a lower food intake. For example, in the US and today now in most of the Western world people eat a lot of fast food and drink sugary soft drinks, so I think the gradual elimination of these from our diets is more practical than completely eliminating them, since both high salt and high sugar foods and drinks are addictive, then their sudden withdrawal will produce anxiety and in the end be counterproductive. Therefore, if a person who say has 3 cokes a day reduces that intake to 1.5 and replaces them with water or tea or natural fruit juice then he/she is already on the way to improving their diet and losing weight. Same goes for food. Also the addition of exercise, should also be gradual in the obese and morbidly obese in conjunction with the rest by way of encouragement.
    It’s just a thought I’ve had, and I think with say an anorexic, extra food also has to be introduced gradually so he/she can tolerate the intake and not suddenly have the sensation of becoming terribly obese because one day they’ve had a large plate of cooked lentils for example.
    I’m probably barking up the wrong tree but thought I would mention it anyway.

    Hi I’ve been encouraged to use a HIGH protein (30g or more per meal) with a LOW Carb diet (under 30g per meal), along with fruits and veggies. How would this fit in?
