Neuroscientist Speaks Out: Cholesterol and Fat Myths & Misinformation

The “Heart-Healthy” Low-Fat Advice Was Killing Him!

After being diagnosed as being overweight with high cholesterol, high triglycerides and being labeled as a ‘high risk’ for heart disease, David Diamond PhD, decided to follow the standard diet advice that gets the ‘tick of approval’ and was recommended by his doctor. Namely – the ‘Heart Healthy’ Low Fat, low animal product approach – he cut the fat and started exercising.

And that’s when things got even worse . . .

The mainstream advice given to him by his doctors wasn’t working. If anything, it was killing him.

Dr. Diamond’s high cholesterol went higher and his triglycerides skyrocketed. His doctor recommended that he start taking drugs to lower his cholesterol, but David didn’t listen. Rather than head to the pharmacy for drugs to lower cholesterol as suggested by his doctor – he instead headed for the library.

Why? Well as a Ph.D. professor – he wanted to learn all he could about cholesterol, obesity and heart health.

What he found was that the areas of heart disease and nutrition are filled with incompetence and massive conflicts of interest.

David discovered that many of the “truths” that are perpetuated by mainstream media and even health professionals are often completely false. Prime examples of that are the associations between saturated fat intake, cholesterol, and heart disease.

He also uncovers the history of obesity and how doctors knew that reducing carbs could cure obesity a 150 years ago, but how this knowledge got lost along the way.

In the following video, neuroscientist David Diamond, Ph.D. explains how he had personally started to suffer from the effects of eating the standard western diet.

Thyroid Issues, HRT, Obesity, Depression all GONE: How ‘Being Savvy’ Changed My Life!

I was very thin as young girl, till I got married and went on the first contraceptive pill just 1 month before (at 19 ½ years). After 3 weeks honeymoon, I came back 1 stone (6 ½ kilos) heavier than I had ever been, and my body is only just beginning to recover, almost forty years later.

The Pill really mucked-up my system for rest of my life. Before then I had been on no medication whatsoever, and only ever had 1 illness in my whole life to that point. I kept putting on weight – and every child-birth added extra weight that I couldn’t budge.

I went on numerous diets and spent $10,000s on weight-loss programs – Jenny, Craig, Gloria Marshall, gyms, medically-prescribed diet pills, weight-loss groups, etc, over 30-40 years. You name it and I’ve probably done it. But I just kept putting on weight. When doing those programs and diets I could never lose more than 10k, and I always put it back on double, when I went off any diet. I’d like to share what happened when I came across the Savvy Team and their wellness programs. Read More
