The Infectious Myth - Tim Noakes Converting to the High Fat Low Carb Diet

Tim Noakes is a professor of medicine and sports who ran into a spot of trouble because he promoted a high fat, low carb diet, while many of his colleagues were still welded to the low fat dietary fad. In the discussion Tim describes how he was always athletic, but ended up with diabetes anyway. He researched diet, became convinced that high carb diets were the culprit, and transitioned to a high fat, low carb diet, leaving diabetes behind him. We discuss his history, the rise and (almost) fall of the low fat, high carb diet, and also how he managed to avoid losing his medical license when challenged by his peers.   Now that he is retired, he spends his time at his foundation, promoting his dietary ideas..
