Two reports released this week shed light on the current state of type 2 diabetes in this country, and their conclusions are both promising and sobering. First, the good news: An article in The New England Journal of Medicine shows that rates of diabetes-related problems like heart attack, stroke, and lower-limb amputation are down by more than 50% over the last two decades.

Now the bad news: during the same time period, the number of people with diabetes has soared, according to a report in the Annals of Internal Medicine. In the early 1990s, 5.5% of adults had diabetes. By 2010, the number had nearly doubled, to 9.3%. That translates into about 21 million American adults living with diabetes.

If you want to lose fat in 2014, how about we do it together?  I need to work off some Danish butter cookies. Last year, the Lift team helped me test The Slow-Carb Diet® with 3,500 readers.  The result: 84% of people lost weight and the average weight loss was 8.6 pounds over four weeks.  Many people lost more than 20 pounds.  This didn’t surprise me, given the case studies of people who’ve lost 100+ pounds.

Working alongside UC Berkeley, Lift is now launching the largest study of popular diets ever performed.  You can choose from 10 different diets (Paleo, vegetarian, gluten-free, etc.), and the study includes control groups and a randomized trial.  The Slow-Carb Diet is one option. Read More…

Ceremonies, remembrances mark one-year anniversary of Boston Marathon bombing

One year ago today, the detonation of two improvised bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killed three people, injured more than 260 others, and shattered a day traditionally filled with joy and camaraderie. Although the bombing immediately extinguished the celebration, it sparked an outpouring of extraordinary work and compassion that continues to this day.

Residents of Boston, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and beyond rallied to help those injured by the bombs. It is a testament to the extraordinary care and preparation by first responders and staff members at all Boston-area hospitals that only three people died.

Many of the wounded were taken to teaching hospitals affiliated with Harvard Medical School: Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Boston Children’s Hospital. Physicians at Mass Eye and Ear helped those suffering from serious blast injuries. During the following weeks and months, clinicians at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and McLean Hospital helped others recover. (Many of these institutions are marking the anniversary with a variety of events.)

“Did all of a sudden the entire world just become a bunch of gluttons and sloths? All at the same time? I mean, get real.” – Dr. Robert H. Lustig. There are many things wrong with the modern diet… but the massive amounts of added sugar may just be the worst.

Numerous studies show that sugar, more than any other ingredient in the diet, may be driving some of the world’s leading killers… including heart disease, diabetes and even cancer.

Have You Tried Quark?

“Watch Out! There’s a new cheese on the block,” says the online description of Elli Quark.

Quark may be new to Americans (so Elli Quarknew that Elli may not have reached your area yet), but Europeans and Canadians have been enjoying it for years. It’s a “fresh, smooth cheese,” as Elli’s label notes. But to most people, it will probably seem more like a greek yogurt or sour cream. In fact, it’s got live active cultures, just like yogurt.

Choose a 6 oz. Plain—a perfect companion for your fresh berries, peaches, or other fruit—and you pocket 17 grams of protein plus 15 percent of a day’s calcium for only 90 fat-free calories. And Quark has enough tang to stand in for sour cream on baked potatoes or other dishes.

Go with the Pineapple or Strawberry—or the (fruit-poor) Lemon or Red Velvet—and you walk away with nearly the same numbers. But unlike yogurts that are sweetened with sugar or with the questionable artificial sweeteners acesulfame potassium, aspartame, and/or sucralose, Elli uses only stevia (a plant extract) and the sugar alcohol erythritol.

Both are rated “safe” by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, Nutrition Action’s publisher (see Chemical Cuisine.org). Some people detect a slightly bitter aftertaste when they eat stevia. If that’s you, switch to plain Elli and reach for some blueberries or banana.

“Crave What’s Simple,” says the label. “At Elli, we believe in using simple ingredients to create nutritious foods that fill you up without the empty calories of added sugars.”

Benefits of vitamin D

Vitamin D supplements still debated

VITAMIN DTwo reports published this week in the journal BMJ weren’t exactly an April Fool’s Day message about vitamin D, but they came close.

For the past few years, vitamin D has been gaining a reputation—not entirely earned—as a wonder vitamin that offers protection against some cancers, bone-weakening osteoporosis, heart attack, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic conditions. Not so fast, caution the two reports.

In one of the BMJ studies, led by Evropi Theodoratou, a research fellow at the University of Edinburgh, researchers evaluated the results of 268 previous studies of vitamin D. Their conclusion: “highly convincing evidence of a clear role of vitamin D does not exist for any outcome, but associations with a selection of outcomes are probable.” In other words, there’s no solid proof that taking vitamin D helps.
