Would you take flying lessons from a Kamikaze pilot?

If you believe the average BDA dietitian and the lowcarb antis, you may have come to the conclusion, a low carber has the life expectancy of a kamikaze pilot. Even if you survived the first six months, you would become riddled with osteoporosis and scurvy. Kidney failure was a certainty. When that does not have us running back to the sugar laden junk, we are told our brains will turn to mush. Cognitive disorders are on the way, turning us into gibbering baboons. Mood swings, so bad from lack of serotonin, would turn us into crazed axe murderers. In short, we were all doomed. So, back to flying lessons.

If you needed flying lessons, who would you chose to teach you? a man like the hero pilot Chesley B "Sully" Sullenberger or a Kamikaze. A no brainer yes, but what if you wanted professional advice on diet, and needed to lose weight. Would you chose a slim person, or someone with a BMI like the late great Pavarotti? For me another no brainer. 

Claire Julsing Stryd arguably South Africa's highest
 profile dietitian measuring a slim persons waist.
Claire doesn't rate a low carb diet, could her paid consultancy for Kellogg's, and links to other junk food outfits and big pharma, have anything to do with that I am wondering. Make up your own mind. We have the same situation in the UK. Some of the highest profile and most vocal dietitians, can't control their own weight, yet they have the chutzpah to lecture others on weight control, and the so called healthy balanced diet. Only in a world this crazy.

To the original question, if he's still around he technically isn't one yet to be giving out lessons.

Here is an article I just read.

Thanks Linda, had seen that before and it has been the subject of a blog post on the 30th December

i encourage anyone who follow a low-carbohydrates diet to ask your physician to make the record about it in your medical history. It could make a difference some day.

It could make a difference but so many GP's do not want to know.
We should not give up, we should keep talking about low-carbohydrates diet, and their success

I can hardly wait to see my waist measurement drop. I've lost a kilo so far this year but there's no difference in my waist yet.

that always amazes me too, or having a fat doctor tell you to lose weight

Galina L. said...

River, could you tell more about your diet, if you don't mind?

Lowcarb team member said...

Galina did you know Tess died in November, what a shock, such a great person. I still can't get over it. Life can be so cruel eh.


Galina L. said...

No, I don't. Who told you? It is a shock!

Her family posted the sad news on her face book account. I wondered why her blog went very quiet a few months ago. Came as a blow when we found out. She is gone but we will never forget her. May she RIP

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, I had no other way of contacting you.

Regards Eddie

I thought my email was visible for the blog administrators of the blogs I used. What was the cause of her death?

Lowcarb team member said...

Cause of death was not stated. We never get any details of a commentors email address all it says re sender is Galina L. hence the idiot anons know we cannot trace them.
