    @jjraak in principle you are correct. The conclusion of the papers says:
    Our calculations show that the lungs are the primary excretory organ for fat.

    Of course you also need to restrict intake of calories, but this is not easy as the human body is not a combustion engine. Calories are not all equal. Our metabolism is driven by hormones which regulate hunger and base metabolic rate (BMR). Eating less of the same does not work. it lowers your BMR and leaves you hungry. This is why most diets fail.

    Thanks for the link to the very informative paper 12 points of evidence for LCHF

    I was of course, taking a liberty and being rather flip ...my apologies

    I read back on your early posts, great success, congratulations

    Have to agree,. I had noticed on my journey, that some foods seemed to have more "value' keeping hunger at bay then others.

    I ate the Eatwell diet for 8 weeks after DX, and like many was almost too worried to enjoy eating
    I actually got worse which is when I searched and found this forum

    So I can categorically agree with your summation about diets
    I felt wretched, depressed and constantly hungry.
    Not something I ever feel since changing diet.

    Reading up, Dr Fung was an eye opener, and then the piece you mention stuck in my head.


    While we're talking links ..

    THIS
    https://www.livingloud.org.uk/single-post/2018/12/14/International-Diabetes-Summit-2018

    Was the most influential post I read that year.
    I was able to watch the video, ( can't find it now)
    And he had me cheering him on
    SO spot on.

    Absolutely NAILED it for me

    Worth a read
