USDA Ignoring the Science on Low-Carb Diets “I was wondering if we should have a separate section on low-carb diets rather than burying it,” wrote Harvard nutrition professor Frank Hu about to the guidelines official report..." #LCHF #keto #EBM

New study finds new diabetes diagnoses among kids 8-12 rose by 77% during the pandemic, and cases had more complications 😭 Tragically, no authorities were telling the public to eat better. Instead it was: reward yourself with a Krispy Kreme w/ your shot.

I'm worried bc the White House Conference leader is the person who put out this food rating systems, with Lucky Charms, Frosted Mini-Wheats and 70 other cereals, listed by brand, ranked far healthier than an egg cooked in butter. This is our leadership

Conference organizers finally announced partial speaker list 5d before the event. And they're still asking the public to share ideas via mini-videos...for what? Agendas have in the works for many, many months now. Why i'm worried... 1/

I’ve spend 9 months on this paper and today it’s finally published after rigorous and long peer review process. It’s perhaps the most important work of my career so far and it has implications for every human being on the planet.

A national tragedy. Government-sanctioned high-sugar diets steep children in insulin, setting them on a course for pre-diabetes, which is also: pre-obesity pre-heart disease pre-cancer pre-liver disease pre-ADHD pre-mood disorders and pre-Alzheimer's disease, just to name a few.

<One week away and still a blank agenda for this conference. Yesterday, I got emails from USDA, White House, saying it was "not too late" to share my ideas. Really? My hunch is outcome is already in the bag. Here's some reporting you won't find elsewhere:

Mind your marbles, everyone! More evidence that Alzheimer's disease is largely driven by sluggish brain glucose processing. Keep those glucose and insulin levels in a healthy range to protect your brain's energy supply. Thank you @MetabolicSummit #AlzheimersDay

On the other hand, here's a CSPI rep saying 12.5 tsp of sugar per day is OK. More than that is what she considers "in excess"

New report by @USDA ➡️ School breakfasts and lunches had more added sugars than the recommended limit the 2020-2025 dietary guidelines. It’s time for USDA to set an added #sugar limit and align school #nutrition standards with the #DGAs . Full report:

"Healthy" school lunches: Maple Waffles French Toast Sticks Maple Flavored Pancakes These are main courses. Govt approved, and presumably follow the US Dietary Guidelines, which call for 6 servings grains/day, incl. 3 refined, plus 10% of calories as sugar A recipe for diabetes

"Healthy" lunch in my local primary school menu in NJ, USA. Prepared by @Pomptonian1 who according to their website, promotes nutrition. Pizza, chicken nuggets, waffles and turkey sausage. Must be some sick joke? #obesity #metabolicsyndrome @bigfatsurprise

NYC continues to openly teach hate of the working ranchers, farmers who produce the nation’s meat, dairy. I doubt that the attendees here have ever set foot on a rural farm, talked to a rancher.

Now 8 days away--still no agenda for the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition & Health. MDs/researchers who are reversing obesity + other diet-related diseases not invited to participate. Instead: food companies, investors.

I can’t recommend this course enough. @GeorgiaEdeMD has more experience than any living person in training people to deliver ketogenic metabolic therapy for mental health conditions.
