Dear all, are you aware of any special recommendations for somebody who lives in a cold climate area where the summer is only around a month or two and the temperature is 20 degrees by Centigrade below zero most of the time? How to consume enough calories without oil and animal products? What about Vitamin D possible deficiency?
Same thing. They are very heavily concentrated sugars. He keeps servings of fruit limited to 3 small servings. Too much fructose can raise triglycerides, damage the liver and injure endothelial cells. He takes no chances with his heart disease patients.
Of course you need to supplement Vitamin D, just as those who live in less northerly climates do. I’m in Virginia and I supplement, but that’s not due to this diet, it’s about not getting enough sunlight as I’m not outside as much as I would like.
