Fatty liver disease & kidney failure by overconsumption of Soft Drinks in remote Aboriginal communities

Amata, a small aborigine community located in South Australia that, despite being alcohol-free, has witnessed an uprise in fatty liver disease and early deaths linked to kidney failure.

John Tregenza, an aboriginal community development worker, reports observing a direct correlation between the widespread availability of sugary junk foods in local stores and a steep decline in the  community’s health.

Amata, which has a population of about 400, had been consuming an astounding 40,000 litres of soft drink each year. The result? A graveyard full of preventable deaths. Gameau and Tregenza tour a local cemetery during which the social worker points out numerous graves of people he says suffered an early and unnecessary death. “All those folks were under 40,” says Tregenza.

Limit your net carbs (total carbs minus fibre) to a maximum of 30 to 40 grams per day.  You can consume as many high-fibre veggies as you like. They’re carbs, but since they’re high in fibre, they’re typically quite low in net carbs Limit protein to a maximum of 1 gram of protein per kilogram of lean body mass. Increase healthy fats to 50 percent to 85 percent of your daily calories. Once you achieve fat burning it is best to cycle in and out of it.
