LowCarbUSA Podcast

Keto Kind is for medical practitioners who are using therapeutic carbohydrate deduction as an intervention in their practice to feel comfortable recommending to their patients to use as a convenient replacement to take to work, or to somewhere where they did not think a keto option would be available, or even just if they didn't feel like cooking.

What a treat to spend some time with Nick Norwitz PhD.  He just graduated from Oxford with a PhD in neuro-metabolism and now he is about to embark on his MD at Harvard.  But this is not about his academic achievements, impressive as they are, rather it is about his immense battles with numerous chronic conditions that led him down the path to discovering keto.

LowCarbUSA Podcast

David and Jen Unwin chat about how they first came to learn about Low Carb through a patient who went off and reversed her diabetes on her own.  She came back and literally scolded him for not every telling her that starch was really just sugar in the body and she asked if he was even qualified!  When I pointed out that he was never taught that stuff during his studies at university, I was amazed by his answer, "That is No Excuse!!  As a doctor I should have know that.  I was caught with my pants down".

After bursting onto the scene with Good Calories Bad Calories in 2007, Gary Taubes has gone on to write many books that have managed to make it into the mainstream and not get pigeonholed in the Keto or Low Carb genre.  It's because of this that I am particularly excited about this new book of his, 'The Case For Keto' (available on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Case-Keto-Rethinking-Practice-Low-Carb/dp/0525520066/&tag=lcu-20).

LowCarbUSA Podcast

What a fascinating discussion with Dr. Ben Bikman about what Insulin Resistance really means and so much more.  I loved this statement he made during the talk: "We should be studiously avoiding dogmatic thinking and constantly be checking what we think we know, lest we become that which we have grown to despise in those who are very antagonistic towards a low carb diet."

Dr. Adele Hite has been instrumental in helping us to get to this point where we are about to launch the nonprofit Society for Metabolic Health Practitioners (SMHP).  It became clear that  what we really needed was a dedicated nonprofit entity for practitioners.  So I went off and established a nonprofit called the SMHP and put a Board of Directors in place and built a website and by the time this podcast airs, we will be live at https://metabolicpractitioners.org/.

Adam Pike was one of the lawyers involved in the successful defence of the charge against Prof. Tim Noakes for replying to a lady on Twitter about the best way to wean a baby.  Since then Adam has presented a talk on ethical behaviour of medical professionals on social media for the Nutrition Network, which is a spin-off from the Noakes Foundation.  I had a fascinating chat with him about what constitutes ethical behaviour on social media and we discover how the behaviour of Prof. Noakes did not constitute unethical behaviour (which is why he was exonerated) whereas the behaviour of...

Internal Medicine Doc Takes Keto To Patients and Impoverished Communities: Ep 57 show art Internal Medicine Doc Takes Keto To Patients and Impoverished Communities: Ep 57

LowCarbUSA Podcast

Vyvyane Loh is an internal medicine doctor who found her own A1c levels were around 6.4.  Her doctor, seeing that she was not overweight, told her not to worry about it. She started digging into it more and soon started on the Atkins diet.  Literally in 2 days all her symptoms previously attributed to irritable bowl syndrome disappeared.  She has reversed her own diabetes trend and is now helping to reach the more impoverished communities who aren't exposed to this information as easily.

Today we talk to Dr. Adele Hite about her herculean effort to co-ordinate the compilation of the document outlining Clinical Guidelines for Therapeutic Carbohydrate Restriction for us.  Once we established the panel of advisers she set about creating the draft of the document and then bouncing it off the panel over and over until we were happy that we had it to the point where it could be published.  This is a massive step towards establishing the Standard of Care for the prescription of Carbohydrate Reduction as a Therapeutic Intervention.  That has been our main focus since about April 2018 and this document is a brilliant starting point for the conversations that will eventually lead to a consensus and an SoC for practitioners using this lifestyle intervention in their practice.

What's more exciting is that we have been approached by numerous people to translate it into several different languages.  At this time we have published the Clinical Guidelines for Therapeutic Carbohydrate Restriction in German and Portuguese and Spanish, French, Dutch and Indonesian are close behind.  We envisage translation into many other languages in the future.

We plan to never insert commercials in our podcasts, but the work we do to put on these educational events, build the community and develop and maintain the Clinical Guidelines is not sustainable without your support.  Please consider becoming a patron.  Even the smallest contribution helps!
