Scrubs too loose after 20 kg weight loss
"It's embarrassing having the theatre nurse pull my pant's up you know!" said Wynand, who called me to brag about his weight loss. Three months in to Decarb and the 20 kilos he had lost were making him too slim for his normal theatre gear.
Wynand, a Durban based surgeon,started Decarb towards the end of 2013. The program worked so well for him that that he had lost 4 kilos in the first three weeks. Two months later he called to say that he was down 8 kg, and he was sleeping through each night, without taking sleeping pills. This was really important for him as he had struggled to sleep for the past twenty years.
I did not hear from him again until last week, when he called tongue in cheek, to complain that the Decarb was working too well!
I gave him three pieces of advice "Keep up the good work, spread the word about low carb and buy new scrubs!"

New Book Review
"Some Words To Live And Eat By"
In April, Gloria Malan posted a review of the Decarb Diet Book
I discovered The Decarb Diet, , a diet and lifestyle read that actually makes sense and is practical in every sense of the word... many diet books battle to engage the reader… they fail to establish that all-important connection and come across – either deliberately or unintentionally – as a prescription, not a genuine source of help.
But The Decarb Diet is different, easy to read and understand.

Low Carb Cycling In Angkor Wat Cambodia
Argus Sunday finds me riding a bike furiously, as per normal for the past sixteen years. Sweat drips off my nose. This year I am not wearing my timing chip, nor do I have Chapman’s Peak or Suikerbossie in my itinerary.
My destination is a long way from Cape Town. I am wheeling down Pokambor Avenue, outside a small town called Siem Reap, heading for Angkor Wat.
Angkor Wat is a temple city, built by a Khymer king a thousand years ago.
