For decades, consumers have tried to bypass butter and steer clear of steak. Now, however, several low-carb studies have provided convincing evidence that saturated fat is not the enemy when it comes to weight gain and health. And leading the pack of low carb diet converts is Professor Timothy Noakes, reported the Times Live on July 23.
A sports scientist in Cape Town, Noakes has lectured, researched and written about the benefits of high fat low carb diets. He’s become so known for his championship of the approach that some followers refer to the plan as the “Noakes diet.”
Noakes is humble about his influence, saying, “It’s because people have tried it and it works.” He constantly is greeted by appreciative dieters.
