A very interesting post by “Dr. Jay,” author of “My Big Fat Diet”, looking at the other ailments that a LCHF (Low Carb / High Fat) lifestyle may alleviate. The main reason I decided to cut carbs out of my diet was because of the swelling caused by large amounts of fat inside my body and the concern I have due to the history of diabetes in my family.

Here are two quotes I wanted to save:

The current paradigm implies that weight gain is a causal link in the chain that connects to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and a host of other common conditions. I think that weight gain is not, in and of itself, causal. It is another of the conditions that are symptomatic of the underlying cause which is related to carbohydrates in the diet.
exercise will cause you to overeat but overeating won’t cause you to exercise
