Military and the KETO Diet…/defense-department-to-ban-…/

Hello to all,
Our newsletter today is hopeful and revealing. Pioneering research has been done by Jeff Volek at Ohio State and Dominic D'Agostino at University of South Florida who  have studied the keto diet among a population of Navy Seal Divers and ROTC students. Because of the very positive outcomes in these studies the Department of Defense is strongly considering a properly formulated Keto Diet as the base nutritional plan for the military.

Lisa Sanders, director of science and technology at U.S. Special Operations Command reported on the Ohio State research that recommends the switch to a well formulated  KETO diet to replace the Standard American Diet which is loaded in poor nutrition, poor carbohydrate choices and insufficient healthy fats.

What is driving the interest in Keto?  Increasing obesity as a potential threat to national readiness.

For those of you who are living in harmony with keto principles you know from your personal results that excess weight is easily lost, energy goes up and aches and pains begin disappearing.
The same results were noted in Navy Seal Divers and ROTC students WITHOUT negative side effects. We can only hope that science holds sway in the future as the nutritional health of the military is at stake.

If you too want  to be like a Navy Seal Diver please attend our next free workshop on July 13 at The International Wildlife Museum in Tucson. We will discuss the exact eating plan that has been discussed above.

All the best,
Dr Payne


Breaking World News !!!

The American Diabetes Association (ADA)  now says two earth changing statements for the first time ever!


1.   Reducing dietary carbohydrate intake has demonstrated the 

best evidence for improving glycemic (blood sugar) control.

2.   Low to very low carbohydrate eating plans are a viable 

approach. Especially in Type 2 diabetics where reducing diabetes  

medications is a priority.


Aseem Malhotra, MD ~ Cardiologist ~  April 24, 2019 at 9:23 PM


‪The American Diabetes Association has reached a consensus recommendation that for those with Prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes ‬(1 in 3 Americans) low carb is the best option for improving glucose control. As many of you know despite many attacks I along with many inspirational people have advocated and campaigned to get this evidence out since 2013 through a multitude of medical journal articles and newspapers including mainstream media in the US and even gave a talk in the European Parliament last year and the British Parliament several weeks ago. There are many heroes in this space not least Gary Taubes, Nina Teicholz and Prof Tim Noakes but in recent times the one person who really inspired me with the science and 

I’ve cited his work many times is biochemist Richard David Feinman! 

Now the real challenge is to ensure the science is being translated into clinical practice so ALL patients with Type 2 or Prediabetes can benefit.

Douglas Payne ~ April 25, 2019

I think this announcement was made, due in part, to a major law suit that awarded a diabetic plaintiff perhaps the biggest settlement against the ADA in history. Now affirmed by the Supreme Court in 2018. the case known as Banting vs ADA was lost by the ADA as they were found negligent as an organization for not informing Banting that he had the option of a low carb diet as a viable therapy for his Type 2 diabetes. 

As a result of complications of diabetes this young man lost his foot to surgery. 

The shocking development in this case was that the young man completely cured the diabetes after his foot was amputated by finding a physician who recommended a low carb diet that completely restored his health, but of course missing a foot. The court held, as it has many times in the past, that physicians have the duty to inform the patient of all treatment options available to them. To avoid a future malpractice claim all physicians are now on notice that low carbohydrate dietary habit is viable, 

proven and helpful to many. 

Failure to inform is a serious legal tenet that must be acknowledged.

Clinically, this is not news to the many, many diabetes patients who have already reduced or eliminated their diabetes medications by following a low carb eating habit. The Ketogenic Therapeutic Diet is the premier low carb approach. 

What say those clinicians now, who in a clinical setting, do not at least recommend the option of a low carb diet. If they want to say they are in harmony with ADA guidelines they must divulge this new information to their patients. For those of you who need to have this discussion with your physician 

please take along a copy of this news release to your next visit.

For those clinicians who want to get up to date in their clinical skills I highly recommend the biochemistry book "The World Turned Upside Down" 

by Professor Richard David Feinman Ph.D.

For those working in the diabetes field, whether physician or dietician there is no longer any where to hide. The ADA and the National Food Guidelines are 

changed and will continue to change moving forward.


Weight Watchers Is Getting Crushed By KETO

March 1, 2019

Hello to all,

Our newsletter today is eye-opening. The headline is self-explanatory. Those of you who have adopted KETO principles in your life know from first hand experience that the "recommended diets" of the last 40 years that dogmatically pounded low calorie, low fat and high carb high exercise have been an utter failure. The entire food pyramid approach to weight control and better health was never based on actual science but rather on unscientific marketing that resulted in a 70% overweight/obesity rate and a 40% prediabetes/diabetes rate nationally. 

Utter corruption, greed and hucksterism. A national disgrace. 

KETO principles are succeeding world wide because they work.

We see all around us our neighbors, friends, family and workmates regaining their health when they eat and live in harmony with their actual genetics and biochemistry. We see it with our own eyes as we observe others. 

It is a true grassroots success. 

Will Weight Watchers do the scientifically honest thing and admit failure in the light of national obesity statistics. Apparently not,

their CEO said "they were not going to change their strategy" and "we know we are the program that works"

Furthering, of course, profit and corruption and harm to many people. 

It is my personal belief that Oprah has "gone KETO" by switching from her famous saying "I love bread" 

to eating plenty of KETO-friendly crow.

All the best,

Dr Payne

The Inuit Eskimo People, historic photos

February 20, 2019


What we know........

Lived for 10,000 years with virtually no carbohydrate in their diet. Lived on an average 80% fat diet.

Lived to very old ages without significant metabolic diseases that plague modern man.

Virtually no coronary vessel disease upon autopsy in the early 1950's.

These photos of beautiful, healthy, thin, intelligent and tough people were taken before the Canada Food Guide tried to "save them". The food guide ( in the USA known as the food pyramid high carb low fat diet introduced in 1971) has turned out to be devastating for the Inuit culture as evidenced by their current state of poor metabolic health, obesity, diabetes and heart disease. 

The ultimate description of a strongly ketogenic culture is contained in close observation of these photos.

~ What do you see as you view the photographs ?

~ Have you been harmed by the food pyramid ?

All the best,

Hello to all.
Our newsletter today is in regard to the following post from Helen Barnard from one year ago. Thanks Helen for your kind thoughts about our book "Understanding the Ketogenic Therapeutic Diet". We intended to make the book the easiest to understand of any "keto book" ever written. Based on our feedback over the years from professionals and the public alike we believe that we have achieved that goal. The format and writing style of the book is by far the most unique in the keto world.

We have now just published the 8th edition of the book. 

Although the basic biochemistry of human nutrition has not changed nor will ever change, the underlying understanding of our readers has expanded greatly. Our audience is now much more sophisticated than in years gone by due to the explosion of world wide interest in keto principles

We have now included a much deeper understanding of inflammation, cell wall structure, advanced understanding of the role of cholesterol and saturated fat in our diet and physiology. National governing bodies and major universities are drastically changing their view and acceptance of a lower carb higher fat diet as critical to our health.

All the best to you as you continue your quest to obtain the best possible understanding of what is required to achieve good health.

"Your new book, Understanding the Ketogenic Therapeutic Diet, is amazing!
Both the beautiful artwork and the way the information is presented, 

make the information just pop off the pages!
Thank you so much for all you do to continue researching 

and to continue teaching all of us to make us all healthier!"
