The modern dietary advice fed to us by the establishment is unhealthy and must be rejected, argues Tim Noakes, a South African scientist and an emeritus professor in the Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine at the University Of Cape Town.
For example, cholesterol is an essential substance that plays vital roles in our bodies, and it is important to challenge the prevailing narrative that demonises it.
Cholesterol is not the enemy.
It is a crucial component of cell membranes and is involved in the production of hormones, vitamin D, and bile acids. It acts as a structural molecule and helps maintain the integrity and fluidity of cell membranes. Additionally, cholesterol serves as a precursor for the synthesis of important hormones, including oestrogen, testosterone, and cortisol.
Moreover, cholesterol is wrongly implicated as the culprit in heart disease.
High cholesterol levels do not lead to heart disease.
Eating a diet high in protein and saturated fat is healthy.
Tim joined me for a conversation about all of the aforementioned, touching on the differences between “no carb” and “low carb”, fat storage, supplements, ketosis, glucose, and statins.
