At the time Prof.Tim Noakes was in the media, talking about his book "Challenging beliefs". This became my first ever e-book. The nutrition section left me shocked. I created a Twitter account to follow Prof Tim Noakes @ProfTimNoakes
I then bought Gary Taubes' "Good Calories Bad Calories" an amazing book, difficult read for me but highly recommended. (65 pages of bibliography)
Then Dr Richard K Berstein's "Diabetes Solution". Joined the forum on http://www.diabetes-book.com/index.shtml
He believes that diabetics are entitled to normal blood sugars.
First diabetic to monitor his own blood sugar.
At age 45 left business to become a medical doctor and treats only diabetics.
Became type 1 diabetic aged 12, now in mid 70's still working 10 hour days....
Then Gary Taubes' "Why we get fat, and what to do about it"
Easier read than GCBC but just as good.
I spent lots of time away from the Sanparks forum due to reading or trolling the internet for more info.
Presentations were held at UCT Medical School which I attended. The first had guest speakers from Sweden.
Dr Andreas Eenfeldt http://www.dietdoctor.com/
Monique Forsland (South African born author) http://www.lifezone.se/eng/
And then The Centenary Debate Prof Tim Noakes vs Dr Jacques Rossouw http://www.health.uct.ac.za/centenary/p ... ry_debate/
Result: I was shocked/stunned and disappointed by UCT Medical faculty's response
with post mortem http://www.samj.org.za/index.php/samj/a ... /6663/4849
Other excellent site Dr Peter Attia http://eatingacademy.com/start-here
