Here's the latest newsletter:
It is being shared around Twitter, etc because Dr Eades high praise of Dr Ted Naiman and his P:E Diet, based on the Protein Leverage Hypothesis.
Newsletter is always long…start here:
The Protein-Leverage Hypothesis
This is another that could have been in the From the Mailbag section as I've had at least 20 people email me asking about it.
The leading proponent of the theory, at least as is practiced in overweight patients, is Ted Naiman, M.D. He's written a terrific book on his program filled with spectacular photographs of beautiful food, which you can buy here on Kindle or through his website.
His results pretty much speak for themselves. If you follow his book, I guarantee you will lose weight and get in much better shape just working out at home.
Dr. Naiman bases his program on the protein-leverage hypothesis derived by David Raubenheimer, PhD. and Stephen Simpson, PhD., researchers from Australia who worked together at Oxford. Dr. Naiman's patients have great results with his program as has he himself, as you can see from his photos. I have no doubt that substituting protein for carbohydrate will bring about weight loss and improvements in health, but I'm not so sure about the mechanism of the protein-leverage hypothesis.
In essence, what the protein-leverage hypothesis hypothesizes is that animals eat until they meet their protein requirements, then they quit. If they eat a high-carb, low-protein diet, they will consume a lot of carb calories until they finally meet their protein requirements, then they'll quit eating. Same with high fat and low protein. Animals will feed on a high-fat, low-protein diet until they hit their protein threshold, then quit. But in both cases, they will over consume either carb or fat calories trying to get enough protein.
According to the hypothesis, if animals are presented with high-protein levels along with their fat and/or carbs, they will consume fewer calories and lose weight or maintain. Makes sense. But does it work? And what does the literature say about it".……Continues in Newsletter linked above.
