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 Noakes

What 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 (LCHF) 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 (HPCSA). 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 LCHF/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. Experienced journalist Marika Sboros provides the full backstory to the HPCSA hearing, which reads like something out of a spy novel. Written in an accessible style, Lore of Nutrition is informative, highly controversial and an eyeopener for anyone who cares about their health.

Toe Antoinette Pienaar, Afrikaanse sangeres en aktrise, die eerste keer staan voor oom Johannes Willemse, legendariese Griekwa-heler, sê hy: “Hier kom Juffrou nou eers aan!”

Want toe het oom Johannes al byna veertig jaar lank drome gekry van die vrou met die rooi bakkie aan wie hy sy kennis sou oordra. Kennis wat terug tot in die antieke verskiet van oupa na kleinseun aangegee is. Ná jare se vakleerlingskap het die eerste uitgawe van Kruidjie roer my verskyn. Dié boek oor wat Karookruie vir jou kan doen het sy plek as klassieke werk ingeneem.

In Kruidjie roer my hoor 'n mens die warm stem van Antoinette soos duisende luisteraars na haar gewilde rubriek op rsg dit ken: vol begrip en deernis, altyd met 'n staaltjie en boweal die ruimhartige mededeling van haar kennis en oom Johannes se wysheid wat nie net na jou liggaam omsien nie, maar ook jou gees dokter.

'n Boek vol mooi name, soos kokkoromoniet, rooivergeetwortels en louhout. En met 'n weelde aan stories en raad wat nou weer beskikbaar is.

Secrets of the Diet Codes unveils the true diet humans should follow. These secrets have eluded us for decades, yet lie hidden in the chemistry of our metabolism and anatomy. With the ever-increasing emphasis on technology, diets have become more complicated and unhealthy. Our digestive systems have been exposed to other feeding standards for eons and have acquired their own sense of what we should eat. It should be our mission to work that out.

FOREWORD

The final truth is that our global health is in a mess. That mess has been caused by the growth and actions of the processed food industry, aided by many other industrial interests, that has addicted us to foods for which our bodies are not adapted as a result of our evolutionary history. We must each make our individual choice of whether or not we accept this as an inevitable. Or whether we are prepared to take responsibility for our personal health by eating the foods for which we have evolved. A good place to start is to read this book. Understand its meaning. Follow its advice. And begin to heal.
Professor Timothy Noakes OMS, MBChB, MD, DSc, PhD (hc) Emeritus Professor, University of Cape Town
