The Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) Debate

TV 3's 3rd Degree aired a segment on the increasingly controversial topic of "The Benefits of Saturated Fats". Not surprisingly, as NZ's leading advocate of the Low Carbohydrate High Fat (LCHF) living, Professor Grant Schofield played a major role in the interview. The segment highlights well-founded evidence on the merits of a diet based on the "evolutionary biology and understanding of human metabolism and nutrition".

For the full 3rd Degree interview watch it here.

LCHF Seminar - Challenging Beliefs

A chance to view Professor Schofield and his team at the LCHF seminars held in October 2013.
