04 May 21 Chatting to Tim Noakes: tweaking the LCHF diet, Covid-19 and his new book
Tim Noakes needs no introduction… listen to him on this podcast talking his new book, some modifications to his LCHF theory and the impact of Covid-19 on diabetics and the obese.
Tim Noakes is South Africa’s best-known sports scientist. He survived a gruelling legal battle over four years to defend his belief that a low carbohydrate, high fat diet is better for your health than a high carbohydrate, low fat diet.
In this podcast, Noakes chats to Jackie Cameron of BizNews about his new book, The Eat Right Revolution: Your Guide to Living a Longer, Healthier Life (co-authored with journalist Marika Sboros) and sets out some modifications to his LCHF theory – with particular insights on how women can lose weight.
Insulin resistance is a key focus in this interview, too, with a large number of diabetics among those who have died of Covid-19.
