Episode 005 with guest Sam Feltham

Sam Feltham discusses his Calorie Experiments… Sam ate 5,794 calories a day for 21 days on a low carb, high fat diet of real foods. After those 21 days and with a 50,000 calorie net surplus Sam had gained just over 1kg and lost 3cm from his waist. He then ate 5,794 for 21 days on a high carb, low fat diet of fake processed foods. The result of those 21 days saw Sam gain just over 7kg and added 9.25cm to his waist.

  • Weight loss is not as simple as ‘calories in, calories out’.
  • The bottom line is health. If you get slimmer along the way, great, but it’s all about health, especially metabolic health.
  • Commit to at least 4 - 6 weeks at 100%.
  • Personal Purpose to become healthier
  • Write down on a Business Card size piece of card your end purpose, for yourself, family, quality of life etc then keep that inside your wallet or purse so each time you go to make a purchase you see this underlying purpose of why you are making these lifestyle choices.
  • When you are transitioning from a low fat, fake food diet to LCHF your gut bacteria has to change as well. During that adaptation you may not see weight loss. One way to help that process along is with fermented foods like sauerkraut, kefir, kombucha.

Episode 004 with guest Gary Fettke

Derek & Telaine chat with 'No Fructose' Gary Fettke - Orthopaedic Surgeon and Senior Lecturer of the University of Tasmania.

  • The Nutritional Model of Inflammation and Modern Disease
  • What happens in the cells, in simple terms, Sugar makes you hungry, Carbohydrates will make fat and Polyunsaturated Oils will make you inflamed and then sick. If you eat processed foods, and you do it regularly, and you have increasing amounts of it, you are going to become inflamed and as a result of that you will become sick. If we avoid processed food and just eat REAL food, particularly when it’s local and seasonal then we can avoid all of that illness.
  • Inflammation is at the root cause of every illness we’ve got, autoimmune disease, mental health, children’s allergies, cardiovascular disease, cancer… inflammation sits underneath it all. If we can find out what causes the inflammation then we can look at all disease from a different angle.
  • The current model of nutritional advice and the food pyramid has been around in Australia since 1980 however our current knowledge of Fructose has only come around since 2010.
  • Fruit is something to have small amounts of irregularly, think of it as a treat not a daily food. Local, seasonal and in small amounts.
  • Small changes every day will see you make vast improvements in your health. It’s about breaking habits.
  • You don’t need to have 3 square meals a day and snacks. Eat when you’re hungry and listen to your body. It gets easier as you go.
  • Once you get sugar out of your body foods will taste better. Sugar dampens your taste buds.
  • As you drift toward nutritional ketosis you do need to increase your salt intake. This is due to the fact that insulin causes salt retention and as you follow an LCHF lifestyle you produce less insulin and therefore require a slightly higher salt intake.
