Dr Caryn Zinn -- Low Carb, High Fat in practice

Dr Caryn Zinn is a dietician at the Auckland University of Technology.

Posting series of videos from experts across different continents to highlight that it is a global phenomenon. LCHF is the best way to manage diabetes and even other things like hypertension, cholesterol, obesity with minimal use of drugs.

BTW she knows how to count carbs and also knows that calories is not grams (even I know that) and in nutrition one also has to take into account even "thermogenesis" and Gary Taubes says that first law of thermodynamics doesn't apply to explaining Obesity. Will post about Gary Taubes, an award winning science journalist, some day later :) :)
