Ask The Low-Carb Experts (Episode 15): ‘Exploding The Low-Carb Myths’ | Dr. Eric Westman

In Episode 15 of “Jimmy Moore Presents: Ask The Low-Carb Experts,” we have an amazing bona fide low-carb expert for you in Duke University researcher and health practitioner Dr. Eric Westman. He is a lifestyle medicine physician/bariatrician who specializes in disease prevention of his patients primarily through the use of low-carbohydrate nutritional approaches that often improve conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, obesity, PCOS, metabolic syndrome, sleep apnea, fatty liver disease and more. Dr. Westman is the co-author with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on the New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You (listen to my interview with him about this book in Episode 338 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show”) and he has performed some of the most influential scientific research on low-carb diets in the world over the past decade. He regularly teaches his patients in Durham, North Carolina about low-carb diets and has heard virtually every objection about it over the years. That’s why we were privileged to have him here with us dispelling the myths people still believe about low-carb living. I’m pleased to have brought you a highly-qualified expert like Dr. Eric Westman today joining us on ATLCX answering listener questions about the plethora of low-carb myths in EPISODE 15 on April 26, 2012.

Bariatric Physicians are obesity specialists so this Physician, Dr. Eric Westman, who is the upcoming President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, should know what he’s talking about!   Jimmy Moore interviewed him to lay to rest many of the unfounded criticisms of the low carb diet we find online and in the media.  Most of Dr. Westman’s associates who use non-surgical techniques to treat their obese patients rely on low carb diets.
