Dr. Jay Wortman's "My Big, Fat Diet"

I thought I'd post this poster about Dr. Wortman's work with LCHF, native foods:



Meat: beef, lamb, veal, pork, ham, bacon or any game meat (rabbit, moose, venison)
Poultry: chicken, turkey, duck, pheasant or other game birds
Seafood: any fish or shellfish including but not limited to salmon, halibut, cod, oolichan,
crab, prawns, clams, oysters, mussels, squid, octopus, any smoked, dried or plain canned fish or seafood (not cured with sugar), roe and roe-on-kelp
Eggs: whole eggs (do not eat whites without yolks)

Salad Greens: 2 cups a day.
Any leafy vegetable including lettuce or other salad greens, parsley, spinach, the tops of green onions, sprouts, fiddleheads, seaweed. (If it is a leaf—you can eat it.)
Vegetables: 1 cup (measured uncooked)a day.
Vegetables that grow above the ground, including asparagus, beet greens, bokchoy, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, chard, Chinese cabbage, cucumber, eggplant, green beans, kale, leeks, mushrooms, peppers, spinach, string beans, squash, tomatoes, turnips, wax beans and zucchini.

Cheese: 4 ounces a day.
Includes hard, aged cheeses such as Swiss, cheddar, mozzarella, Monterey jack, Gruyere, goat cheese, bleu, feta and soft cheeses such as cream cheese, brie and camembert. Avoid processed cheeses, cheese spreads or cheese foods such as Velveeta.
Fresh cheese: 0 ounces a day (while on induction phase).
Includes cottage cheese, farmers cheese, ricotta and tofu.

He includes cream in the plan, which is mentioned in newspaper articles. Here is a slide show of the diet and the results:



Dr. Wortman's blog is www.drjaywortman.com

There is a nice video of Dr. Wortman talking about reversing type 2 diabetes on youtube. Posting links is a bit tricky at this computer, but a search for Dr. Jay Wortman on youtube will bring up the video, as well as excerpts from the film about "My Big Fat Diet" which CBC made.

I find the results quite inspiring.

Best wishes to all for enjoying LC Ancestral living!

TB, yes, and similar to Dr. Richard MacKarness' diet before Atkins, and others before Dr. MacKarness, such as Dr. Blake Donaldson. Dr. Wortman worked with the indigenous peoples to encourage them to eat their native foods, for example, using oolichan grease, eating what their ancestors had. There is a long slide show at www.u\iuhpeconference.net about the traditional foods used.

I didn't cut and paste all the information, but it is fascinating, I think.

I have found my health improving as I've taken out things which are not locally grown or native to the area in which I live, as well as taking out things which are not as similar as I can find to what my ancestors most likely ate.

I'm glad the word is getting out there in the medical community...slowly but it is getting there.

Pinkswan, I, too, am glad. I like your username and avatar!

Jaxann, how lovely you got to see the film. I haven't had a chance to see it yet, just the excerpts on youtube.

I hope it will be show on a PBS station in the US.
