Dear Prof Tim Noakes, we are proud of you! Congratulations!
Thanks to you the health of so many people were changed, myself included. Thank you for your courage to put Banting on the map again!
Prof Tim Noakes, a well known South African Scientist became even more newsworthy when he re-introduced the Low-Carb High-Fat lifestyle. This lifestyle is also named Banting after the first person who introduced this lifestyle. In this lifestyle, all starch and sugars are taken out of your diet, while the intake of fat is increased. With Banting we eat ‘real food’, not food from packets and boxes.
The food industry was NOT impressed. For too long they promoted a High-Carb, Low-Fat lifestyle, while, in the meantime, people became fatter and more unhealthy. Lifestyle illnesses, like diabetes, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, and so much more became the illnesses of the time.
Prof Tim Noakes was brave enough to re-introduce the Banting lifestyle and people around the world started following this lifestyle, with great success. I am one of the Banting crowd.
One day, he answered a mother’s question on Twitter, whether she could give here baby LCHF food, and thát was the misstep so many people waited for. He was charged with misconduct at the Medical Board of South Africa. This law case took three years and millions of rands, and yesterday, he was acquitted! Prof Tim Noakes is FREE! Yes!
Although I am very glad for Prof Noakes and his family, it was not only a win for himself but a win for Banting altogether. Banting received a lot of negative publicity the past years while it helped so many people. I am sure that things will change a lot from now on. Banting worked for me, it is the first diet ever that worked for me. I lost a lot of kilograms, I can maintain my weight, and I am healthier than ever!
BUT, I am not responsible for any person that wants to follow the Banting lifestyle. I still think that it is good to do it with the consent of your doctor, he knows you the best!
