    I got to about twenty minutes before I lost patience. They were going on about meat, fish and especially dairy being high in sat fat and cholesterol (the bit about pus spoiled my breakfast). For medical professionals to speak of cholesterol in terms of CVD without even attempting to discuss the theory behind their 'information' beggars beleif. And let's not go there on their views on cheese. I found the dietician's views disturbing, way to put the fear into pregnant women. Shame on her.

    @Indy51 I've just watched the film you linked to of the doctor's critique of 'What the Health', having seen the documentary a week or so ago.

    THANK YOU for the biggest laugh I've had in days!

    Apparently, 1 eggs is the same as smoking 5 cigarettes a day. Or that eating meat raised blood sugars and gives you diabetes. Who knew?

    They say all this with a straight face.

    P.s. contaminates don't just fall on livestock, they fall on plants. They don't talk about this.

    Well, we could talk about just how awful this documentary is all day.

    Oh, lactose intolerance is bad so don't drink milk. Where's them talking about gluten intolerance from their precious grain?

    As an American Board Certified Family Physician, who used to advocate a Atkins or Ketodiet, I'm sorry to say, WHAT THE HEALTH, is an excellent film

    I did my own scholarly research. The data is spot on. I slowly but surely adopted a fully vegan, no processed oil, no processed sugar diet.

    I've lost 16 lbs and will check my labs soon

    I advocate a #WholeFoodPlantBasedDiet, in contrast to simply a Vegan diet, because the Vegans may make the mistake of adding processed oils (like Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Refined sugars) into their diets.

    What's your A1C? If it's above 5.6 then, no, your blood sugar is not normal. If it is, then yes, it is. Keep us posted.

    How long have you been eating this way and what were you eating beforehand?

    My results are in my signature... I have been eating almost solely animal produce for the past 12 months and ketogenic for the 2 1/2 years before that.
    Units are mmol/m rather than %

    Agreed, it's complete rubbish. Just not worth wasting time on discussing.

    As I posted in the other thread where you have said this same message, you only joined the forum today, and you have not declared what your interest in a diabetes forum is. There is suspicion that you may have a vested interest that is undeclared. I cannot accept any of your postings until you have provided some proper credentials.
