Back in November 2015 I had the privilege to present at Low Carb Down Under events in Melbourne and Brisbane. While I was a bit out of my comfort zone stepping out from behind the keyboard, it was a great opportunity to share some thoughts from the blog and meet some amazing people.
managing insulin to optimise nutrition
The first video, Managing Insulin to Optimise Nutrition, outlines my take on the Food Insulin Index and how we can use it to rank foods based on their insulin demand. To date the article, the most ketogenic diet foods, has received more than 125,000 views and the video has been viewed more than 3000 times. I hope the video will help to get the word out there more about what I think is a very useful concept!
engineering the optimal diet
The second video, Engineering the Optimal Diet, outlines how we can quantify nutrient density and combine it with the food insulin index to prioritise foods selections for different goals. The full article, optimal foods for different goals and the lists of optimal foods for different goals is what I’m most excited about on the blog and hope it will will have the greatest long term impact on what people eat and their health.
I stayed with Dr Rod Tayler in Melbourne and got to chew Dr Kieron Rooney’s ear for the whole weekend. Meeting Gary Fettke, Grant Schofield, Peter Bruckner, Ken Sikaris, Shae Wheeler and a whole pile of other wonderful people was a real honour.
Thanks again to Dr Rod Tayler for the labour of love that is LCDU and to Peter Williams who is a gentleman and the consummate professional with his video production. Together they have not only facilitated some great events but have also created a massive free resource of online videos.
