Concerned that some children receive inadequate nourishment, Professor Timothy Noakes has developed a new proposal to help. Known for his championship of high fat low carb diets for weight lossand health, he hopes to lead the way in improving the diets of children from poor communities by highlighting the benefits of animal organs.
“Carbohydrates drive hunger. They do not satiate us,” he said of his decision to publicize the benefits of all types of animal protein. “The liver, marrow and organs are the healthiest.”
As for those who challenge his high fat low carb diet model, Noakes cites research indicating his plan, sometimes called the “Banting diet,” is the ideal for weight loss and health. “In the real world, the LCHF [low carbohydrate, high fat] is the only diet that works,” he said.
