Welcome and Overview


Ronsaysso is a site dedicated to providing information about how your diet affects your physical and mental health.  It draws on the latest real science and tries to present it in a way that is accessible to most people.

Getting to the bottom of why we, as a generation, are so obese and so unwell has all the hallmarks of a conspiracy theory.  In order to understand the problem and what you can do to help yourself, you must be able to put aside almost everything that you have heard and then open your mind to allow new information to enter – to be digested – to be mulled over  – and be considered.

Look around you.  The majority of people are now chronically ill and/or grossly overweight.  Do you think that is normal?  Modern dogma will tell you that we are all slothful beings without will-power – but we are the same as generations before us that didn’t have all these chronic diseases and weren’t grossly overweight.  Something has changed.  If we understand what has changed then just maybe we can do something about it.

The good news is that achieving good health and losing weight is not very hard and just requires some lifestyle adjustments.

Don’t waste your time. If you cannot live without your sweets then turn away now. If you cannot see past instant gratification then leave now. If you have a closed mind then don’t bother reading further. This website is not for you as we won’t bother trying to change your mind.

This website is not aimed at convincing you. It is just about providing information that allows you to reevaluate the current dogma and maybe, just maybe, come to a different opinion about nutrition and health.

If you are willing to take in information and listen to sensible logic then read on. If your health and the health of your loved ones is important to you then read on. If you are prepared to adjust your lifestyle to achieve good health, then read on. This website is for you.

This website comprises the following main sections that are all accessible through the menu system (above):

  • A How To section that provides summary pages of the how, what and why of nutrition that will quickly get you onto the right path for a healthy and long life.
  • A Resources section that provides links to videos, websites and pages that you can use to start your own exploration of the issues.
  • A Blog section that we use to highlight an issue, present interesting news or just express an opinion.

A good place to start a journey of understanding would be with the resources on our Videos page.  It would be useful to watch the videos of Gary Taubes, Sally Fallon and Nina Teicholz to give you an understanding of how we got where we are now.  You can then appreciate that maybe not everything that you have been told about nutrition is accurate; and that may prime you to accept alternative views.

A good next step would be to start at the top of the Videos and watch the first four videos at your own pace.

If you are really hungry for the answer then click here – though be prepared to feel dissatisfied for not having spent years coming to the same conclusion.

Whilst it may sound like snake-oil, following our recommended approach may fix many health problems that you have and greatly reduce those that you might get:

  • Insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome,
  • Diabetes (T2, T3)
  • Heart disease, stroke
  • Kidney disease, kidney stones
  • Pancreas diseases
  • Liver disease, fatty liver, gall stones
  • Auto-immune disease, arthritis, and other immune system diseases
  • Vascular damage
  • Lifestyle cancers
  • Brain degeneration – dementia, Alzheimer’s
  • Brain fog, mental health

How can this be so?  Well, its because we don’t address the problem by just tackling the symptoms.  Our approach uses nutrition to tackle the underlying metabolic causes of these conditions.

There is no more powerful way to regain physical and mental health than through eating real foods. If a drug produced the same benefits then you would not be able to afford to buy it.

Why so much information about Type-2 Diabetes?

Many of the resources that we link to seem to have a strong focus on Type-2 diabetes (T2D).  Why should you care about T2D, especially if you don’t have it?  Well, it will all become clear in time… however, it is important to realise that T2D is really just one of the ways that the underlying metabolic condition of chronically elevated Insulin levels manifests itself.  Addressing the high Insulin levels that underpin T2D also addresses many other manifestations of the same problem.

Why should I believe what you say?

The whole purpose of this website is to provide information.  What you choose to do with this information is up to you.  You can believe or not believe – that is your choice.  In fact, we prefer that you remain sceptical and spend time to verify the information that we present here.

This website is entirely self-funded and was primarily set up to assist our family and friends with getting access to the information.  It has helped many of them to radically change their lives for the better.   We have nothing to lose or gain whether you believe us or not.

Ultimately, as adults, we make choices that change the course of our lives.  The information presented here gives you the ability to make an informed choice using information that has not been tainted by commercial or other pressures.  You can choose to live a healthy long life, just as you can choose to live a shorter life that is full of suffering.  The choices you make now will greatly affect the quality of your life in latter years.

We hope that you find something here that helps you make a choice that you are happy to live with.

Take responsibility

Unfortunately, if you rely on headlines to inform your behaviour, you could end up anywhere or everywhere.  You have to go beyond and behind the headlines to see which information stands up to scrutiny.   It really is a personal responsibility to do this.  It is up to you to make decisions about your life.

Take personal responsibility – take it personally and make your wellness your mission.

It may well be technically correct to blame the government or doctors’ advice for your illness or imminent death but it doesn’t change the situation – you will still be sick or dying and blaming someone else won’t change that.

We do hope that you, your family and your friends adopt a diet and lifestyle that includes they key ingredients of what we highlight here. We are truly disheartened at the number of people around us that have serious health issues that are so easily preventable. Nearly everyone around us is touched by cancer or diabetes related illnesses and death. Very few of the older people have a good quality of life. Please don’t end up like them.

Please note that the authors are not medical professionals and that you should seek medical advice for any medical conditions that you have.  The trick is to find a real doctor that will address the underlying root-cause of your conditions, rather than treat the symptoms (with drugs).  The authors believe that many medical conditions have been caused by diet and should be treated by diet.

Who wins from a balanced diet?

Are you looking after your health and eating a “balanced diet”? How can you be sure that your diet is balanced?

The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend the number of ‘standard serves’ we should consume from the five core food groups each day, for a nutritious and balanced diet

Nutrition Australia

Personally, I think that “balanced diet” is an absurd term used to manipulate you towards certain desired behaviours.

So much BS so little time

Like many of you, I frequently get this sort of article in my news feeds. Hopefully by now, many of you can recognise it for what it is – the same old dogma that keeps people in line.

Just as you have to Marie Kondo your house to really keep it clean you have to jump on board a ‘movement’ if you want a seriously sculpted physique.

Genes linked to anorexia nervosa identified

A major international study involving numerous Australians identifies eight genes associated with an increased risk of developing eating disorder anorexia nervosa.


Is this a good thing?

Firstly, don’t get me wrong, I think that people suffering with eating disorders are really suffering and should be helped. That said …

There is a lot to be said in support of building your brain out of good materials and then maintaining and fuelling it correctly. This is by far the most effective means of preventing and correcting the underlying brain function that causes these disorders. Treat the cause – not the symptoms.

Critical Thinking – Think before acting

I was thinking about the argument that lean muscle mass in older age determines life-expectancy. This is a widely embraced view and is driving behaviour. It has almost achieved the status of dogma.

The belief comes from studies that show that the more lean muscle mass that an older person has, the longer they are expected to live. So, lean muscle mass is associated with a longer life. Is this all there is to the story? Well, not in my opinion, otherwise I would not be writing this ….

Should you be scared of Glyphosate?

There is a lot of concern about glyphosate recently with some landmark court cases in the USA where some people have been award hundreds of millions of dollars in damages for cancer that supposedly resulted from exposure.

What is glyphosate?

Glyphosate is a chemical weed killer that is used in huge quantities by agriculture. It is generally applied by spraying – either by tractor or aeroplane. It is a systemic chemical that is absorbed by the plant and then interferes with the plants’ ability to use energy.

Anxious, Depressed then think diet

What is wrong with your brain if you suffer from chronic depression or anxiety? Do you think it is something ephemeral like your “id” is broken? Do you think it is just a part of being you? What if your symptoms result from inflammation of your brain?

Depression / Anxiety: Does Your Diet Matter? 2 Doctors Discuss
Is it possible that your diet may be leading to increasing depression and/or anxiety in your life?

Queensland is doing ok, thanks

Today I received a response on behalf of the Queensland Health Minister to my letter regarding the health of Queenslanders. While the response was tepid and not supportive of the objective, at least they did read the information and look and the work in WA. I will reach out to the Federal Health Minister once the election dust settles.

Incretins and you

Incretins are a group of hormones that are released by your GI tract that have a major influence on the digestion of a meal.

Why should you care? Well, just by changing how you eat, you can significantly influence your Insulin response.

Watch and listen to this great talk by Dr Michael Eades to better understand how Incretins affect your life and what you can do about it.


Dr Michael Eades is always worth listening to – seek out his other presentations.

What’s Worse-Carbs or Seed Oils? Understanding a High-PUFA Diet

I have been reading some of Tucker Goodrich’s analysis of the role of seed oils in modern diseases and I believe that he presents a compelling case. I provide a link to his title article on this subject below.

My simple takeaway from reading many of the papers is that (a) excess carbs is bad, (b) excess Linoleic Acid (from seed oils) is bad, but (c) together they are much worse and probably toxic, particularly when a person loses blood glucose regulation.

Tucker Goodrich: http://yelling-stop.blogspot.com/2018/06/whats-worsecarbs-or-seed-oils.html

Tucker has also written an older article “Omega-6 fatty acids: the alternative hypothesis for diseases of civilization” that ties a lot of evidence together in an easier to consume format and with less jargon. It is well worth reading.


We have good evidence that consumption of excessive carbohydrates leads to insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, T2D and related diseases.

We have Robert Lustig showing that the carbohydrate, sugar, by itself is bad.

We have Tucker and others showing how seed oils are particularly bad for our health.

If you add those two/three ingredients together, you get modern processed food.

While neither a high carb diet nor seed oil consumption is good, they seem to work particularly well together to accelerate your decline into early death.

You don’t need me to tell you what to do.
