The Hypocritic Oath

Another Fat Dietician

Posted in Uncategorized by trinkwasser on March 15, 2010

They really shouldn’t let them out in public looking like that, let alone on TV. Actually, maybe they should so long as they wear a label

“Eat like me, look like me!”

Unlike some she seemed fairly sensible though.

Here’s one who isn’t fat, but I bet her patients are.

Susan Jebb

She was on yet another disappointing diet programme recently, and I dug up this pdf

She nearly gets a lot of things, but this demonstrates where she is completely and utterly misguided

The healthier option

is increasingly the

profitable option

Well that’s the entire problem, what’s profitable is replacing nutritious foods like healthy saturated fats with cheap fillers like wheat and Omega 6 seed oils, and sugar in the UK/HFCS in the US.

Also in the media

Slimming sixties not a myth

Despite fewer visits to gyms and a love of high-fat foods, people in the 1960s were slimmer simply because they were more active, the government says.

Er no, I think it was BECAUSE of the high fat foods displacing all those carbs.

Obesity rise on death certificates, researchers say

Diabetes danger of South Asian youngsters

Healthier lifestyles ‘may add more years of bad health’

and an absolute doozie

Snack stand-off: Banana v KitKat

As is par for the course, carb content was not even mentioned, oh except for this

Also helps regulate blood sugar levels and slowly release energy.

A banana??? Yeah it will regulate your BG like putting a brick on your accelerator will regulate your speed. My BG goes up if I look at one for too long. This is not uncommon, they must be one of the most regularly avoided fruits by sensible diabetics. Pity because they were one of my favourites – plantains too.

Yet a standard “diabetic breakfast” is a banana in a bowl of oatmeal.

Doctors ‘failing to give correct cholesterol targets’

Yet more oversimplified crap. NO mention of HDL at all, let alone trigs, both more significant danger factors than LDL alone. Ah but they get improved, often radically, on a low carb diet so better to ignore them and concentrate on the one number that is most likely (though far from certain) to improve on a low fat diet.

Also no mention of the fact that the majority of the population (ie. women) respond far less even than men to TChol or LDL lowering in terms of actual disease risk.

No that isn’t a dietician, that’s someone with Cushing’s
