Welcome to 2015! I hope you had an excellent break and managed it without straying from – or straying too far from – living LCHF. Either way, Lose It! Volume 5 is exactly what you need to get back on track and set you up for the year ahead. In this issue we cover everything from leaky gut syndrome to gout, and nutritional therapist Sally-Ann Creed and Professor Tim Noakes answer a host of your questions, ranging from what to do about muscle cramps to coping with sugar cravings. We held our first Banting Bazaar in early December, and it was a huge success. Since then we’ve been besieged by requests to start Banting Bazaars throughout South Africa, and we’re certainly going to look at that. Don’t worry – we’re on…

10 rules of banting

1 REMEMBER this is not a high protein diet. It’s a high fat, medium protein, low carb way of eating. 2 CHOOSE real foods that look like what they are, and cook them from scratch. 3 NO SUGAR It’s best to go cold turkey. But if you need to make it a transition, substitute with stevia, xylitol or erythritol – NOT artificial sweeteners. 4 NO GRAINS of any kind. 5 FAT is not the enemy. Enjoy it! 6 STOP snacking. You won’t need to – it’s just a habit. 7 EAT only when you’re hungry; eat until you’re satisfied – then stop. 8 EAT EGGS They’re healthy, satisfying and very good for you. 9 NO (or very, very little) FRUIT Think of it as a sweet rather than a healthy snack. 10 DON’ eat when you’re not hungry. You…

WATCH THIS! In Cereal Killers, Prof Tim Noakes leads one man on a 28-day whole-food, high fat, sugar- and wheat-free diet to see whether it will help prevent the heart disease and diabetes prevalent in his family. Reviewer Maria Shawver’s take? ‘Truth. Plain & Simple. After a lifetime (literally) of dogmatism in the “eat less/exercise more/you aren’t trying hard enough” world, this movie made me do a 180. Every day I’m surprised at the ease of living LCHF. Watch it. And your life just may change radically for the better :)))’Order the DVD from amazon.com. Banting vs Paleo on dairy One of the main differences between these diets is dairy: Paleo doesn’t allow it, but banting does, in small quantities. A French-Canadian study published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism looked for associations…

animal fat

THIS MONTH’S MIRACLE INGREDIENT Banting is all about going back to basics – and that means returning to the traditional fats we ate before industrial fats made an appearance. ‘Animal fats are the most natural and most stable of all fats. They’re what our ancestors used for centuries, and only with modern processing came the move to unnatural, man-made fats and oils,’ says nutritional therapist Sally-Ann Creed. ‘Why use chemical-laden fats and oils when there is not a single study to support their safety? There are nutritious, natural, God-given animal fats for us to thrive on, and, my gosh, they’re a hundred times more tasty too! I strongly recommend saturated animal fats and coconut oil as cooking mediums.’ 1 The word ‘saturated’refers to the fact that the carbon atoms in the molecule…

‘thanks to banting i completed my first half marathon and lost 32kg!

‘ struggled with infertility and recurring miscarriages from the age of 30 until 2009 we adpoted our daughter. I was 37. The years of infertility treatment and depression had taken their toll on my weight and my health – I tipped the scales at 118kg. In the previous 10 years, I had tried every diet known to mankind. I’d spent a fortune on schedule 5 diet pills, diet shakes, dieticians and every crazy fad diet imaginable. Nothing worked. I’d lose a couple of kilos, but be hungry and miserable the entire time – and then fall off the wagon spectacularly, gaining the precious few kilos lost... and more. I saw a registered dietician for about a year and lost 8kg by eating low fat. But I was completely miserable and it…
