Tim Noakes on High Fat Diet

Even this legendary exercise Professor Tim Noakes embraced a high fat diet. When he was on a high carbohydrate diet, he developed a pre-diabetic condition and gained weight over the years, despite all that running. It's not possible to loose weight and maintain it for a lifetime with a high-carb diet.

He eat none of these
- Sugar
- All sugary drinks including cola drinks and sweetened fruit juices
- Bread
- Rice
- Pasta
- Potatoes
- Porridge
- Breakfast cereals
- Some high energy fruits like bananas
- All confectionary – cakes and sweets
- Desserts
- Artificial sweetners and products containing these products (like “diet” colas)

He eats:
- Eggs
- Fish
- Meat – organic or grass fed, not processed
- Dairy Produce – milk, cheese and yoghurt – all full cream
- Vegetables – mainly leafy, low carbohydrate sources
- Nuts – macadamia and almonds especially but no peanuts or cashew nuts as these are high in carbohydrates
- Fruits – very occasionally and then only those which have a lower carbohydrate content like apples and berries.
- Water, tea and coffee (all unsweetened!)
