Nutrition and nutritional science


Cholesterol and Health Blog by Dr Chris Masterjohn, nutritional scientist, great writer and public speaker, whom I started to follow in his writings about LCHF diet around 2010. At the time he was advocating the opposite of my beliefs about essential fatty acids and the importance of n-6 vs n-3 (my initial love with nutrition, thanks to the Zone diet, where a low n-6:n-3 ratio is a key parameter to follow), so it sparked my attention and I have been following him with great interest ever since. His website is also online here, with in my opinion easier to find articles bu less updated that his blog.

The Zone Diet by Dr Barry Sears, research scientist and creator of the Zone Diet concept. If there is one source I have to mention for my profound interest in nutritional sciences, it is Dr Sears first book “The Zone Diet” on the hormonal control and anti-inflammatory properties of his approach. The website offers a number of interesting readings on the topic and links to Dr Sears blog.

Eating Academy Blog by Dr Peter Attia, MD with an interesting nutritional background, a bright mind and excellent writing skills. Dr Attia discusses about lipidology and his personal journey into nutritional ketosis in a relatively simple and very passionate way.

Docs Opinion Blog by Dr Sigurdsson, a cardiologist sharing vast knowledge on heart conditions, health and nutrition
