Tim Noakes

Tim Noakes is emeritus professor in sport- en bewegingswetenschappen aan de universiteit van Kaapstad en ontving een eredoctoraat aan de Vrije Universiteit van Amsterdam. Hij rende meer dan 70 marathons en ultramarathons en schreef de wereldwijde bestsellers The Lore of Running en Waterlogged. Nadat hij gediagnosticeerd werd met diabetes type II, ging hij zich richten op voeding. Noakes gaat de strijd aan tegen obesitas en hart- en vaatziekten, en weigert zich neer te leggen bij de wetenschappelijke status quo. In De Real Meal Revolutie opent hij ons de ogen: hij prikt voor eens en altijd de mythe door dat vetarm eten gezond is, en schetst onze voedingsgeschiedenis die leidde tot de huidige gezondheidscrisis.

Samenvatting

“In the context of junk diets, embedded scientists, corrupt – or simply ignorant – doctors and dietitians, human health and omertàs, what you believe about your personal nutrition will determine not just how you live, but also how you die.” – Tim NoakesWhat would you do if you discovered that the food you have been told is good for you is actually the cause of your ill health …? In December 2010, Professor Tim Noakes was introduced to a way of eating that was contrary to everything he had been taught and was accepted as conventional nutrition ‘wisdom’. Having observed the benefits of the low-carb, high-fat lifestyle first-hand, and after thorough and intensive research, Noakes enthusiastically revealed his findings to the South African public in 2012. The backlash from his colleagues in the medical establishment was as swift as it was brutal, and culminated in a misconduct inquiry launched by the Health Professions Council of South Africa. The subsequent hearing lasted well over a year, but Noakes ultimately triumphed, being found not guilty of unprofessional conduct in April 2017. In Lore of Nutrition, he explains the science behind the low-carb, high-fat/Banting diet, and why he champions this lifestyle despite the constant persecution and efforts to silence him. He also discusses at length what he has come to see as a medical and scientific code of silence that discourages anyone in the profession from speaking out against the current dietary guidelines. Leading food, health and medical journalist Marika Sboros, who attended every day of the HPCSA hearing, provides the fascinating backstory to the inquiry, which often reads like a spy novel.Lore of Nutrition is an eye-opener and a must-read for anyone who cares about their health.
