Dr. Ted Jones Literally Turned His Health Around With A Low-Carb Diet

Dr. Ted Jones is convinced low-carb is a healthy way of life

You never know who is gonna be impacted by livin’ la vida low-carb, but it doesn’t take very long for the benefits of this way of eating to start to show up. Just ask Dr. Ted Jones.

Dr. Jones is a clinical psychologist in the Knoxville, Tennessee area specializing in helping people who deal with chronic pain issues at the Behavioral Medicine Institute. One area he started researching in regards to helping his patients deal with their pain and depression is diet and, more specifically, a low-carb diet. Although he wasn’t morbidly obese or anything like that, Dr. Jones did face some rather grim realities in his health when decided to begin on a low-carb regimen in October 2006.

He weighed 199 pounds in that picture to the left at the top of this column. That slightly pudgy belly sticking out wasn’t the only issue Dr. Jones was dealing with. His fasting blood glucose was an incredible 306 and his HgA1c number was a shocking 11.6–both of these indicators of severe insulin resistance and pre-diabetes (if not full-blown Type 2 diabetes!). Additionally, his lipid profile showed he had a total cholesterol of 363 (I don’t know what the HDL or LDL number breakdown is or what the particle size of the LDL showed, but it likely wasn’t very good) and triglycerides of (this is NOT a typo!) 2023!!! Yes, Dr. Jones was in pretty bad shape from a health standpoint.
