Low-carb activist Per Wikholm gives an update from Sweden

There seems to be so much pessimism about the low-carb lifestyle in the United States that it can sometimes make you wonder if anyone in the world actually understands the science behind this way of eating for weight and health management. Unfortunately, the “low-fat diet religion” continues to rule the church of nutrition with a vice-grip that absolutely refuses to let go. But there is hope happening right now within the country of Sweden on behalf of the high-fat, low-fat dietary approach.

In Episode 143 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we catch up with one of the leading voices on behalf of livin’ la vida low-carb in Sweden named Per Wikholm. He is a molecular biologist who stays abreast of the latest happenings in the world of low-carb living in his home country and is a strong proponent of educating the people there about the benefits of the healthy low-carb lifestyle. There’s so much positive happening over there right now with low-carb diets that it should encourage you that GREAT things are to come here in America soon, too!

AWESOME!

Per Wikholm gets us all up-to-date on the things that have happened in Sweden regarding the high-fat, low-carb diet, or what they call LCHF, including this 44-month study by J
