I’m so sorry!
A growing number of physicians have made open apologies for their past recommendations to their patients that encouraged low fat, high carbohydrate meals as a healthy lifestyle choice.
I want to also add my sincere apologies to all my patients for the wrong advice that I have given over the years when I recommended a low fat diet and largely ignored the dangers of processed foods, seed oils, grains, and refined carbohydrates.
The accumulated evidence is, in my opinion, overwhelmingly in support of the value of a low carbohydrate diet with limited processed foods, seed oils, and grains. This is also ideally consumed in fairly narrow eating windows in order to decrease inflammation and insulin resistance while, maximizing metabolic flexibility and autophagy.
Over the last few years there has been a revolution in our understanding of how major chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancers are all linked by underlying longevity processes and most importantly that we can actually influence them through the choices we make in our lives and the primary choice that we can start with is correct diet- what we eat, when we eat, and how much we eat
The wonderful thing about science unlike say religion or politics is that with enough evidence we can all accept new ideas, and admit when we were wrong and change for the better.
As a result I have made this my primary focus to help bring quality evidence based information about health and longevity to the general public through social media, podcasts, video and other presentations such as this.
I hope that you can join me on this exciting journey to transform our health and our lives!!https://www.robertlufkinmd.com/
