I wish I knew how to re-post this article in it’s entirety. Very worth the read, as he first relates the story of yet another person’s remarkable health turn-around with long-term adoption of low-carb nutrition, then discusses the barriers that are keeping this invaluable understanding of carbohydrate intolerance from reaching a wider audience.
If you visit Dr. Wortman’s blog, have a look at his videos of skiing Whistler. No better example of how the long-term adoption of a very low carbohydrate diet can include “peak” physical performance. Ketones are a fabulous fuel source for athletic activity.
While progress through “official channels” in research funding, academia and policy-making bodies is slow, there is a “movement of the people”. If you haven’t seen this video already, have a look at Tom Naughton’s powerful message about knowledge of low-carb nutrition spreading through social channels. At the bottom of the page “Keepers Unite” is the video “Vox Populi”.

They also have a collection of research related to low-carb nutrition – for your interest and/or as a resource for you to use when talking to friends, family and health professionals.
