Dr. Mary Vernon On The Front Lines Of Low-Carb Science

Filed under: Health — @ January 24, 2010

Mary Vernon has joined with Eric Westman and Gary Taubes to create IMS

While it may sometimes seem like low-carb nutrition isn’t making any headway in our culture, when you look behind-the-scenes of the low-carb research world and at real-life practitioners who are implementing carbohydrate restriction with patients radically improving their health and weight you see that the progress is chugging right along. This is what encourages me about the future of low-carb diets because the groundswell within the grassroots of this movement continues to build and build. One of the most outspoken, articulate, and knowledgeable defenders of controlling carbohydrate intake in the world today is back again as today’s podcast guest.

In Episode 327 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are privileged to welcome back to the show the great low-carb practitioner and researcher Dr. Mary C. Vernon who has been a guest three times previously (listen here, here, and here) and she is so excited to be with us today to talk about a brand new joint venture she is doing with Dr. Eric Westman and Gary Taubes to educate the public and physicians called Innovative Metabolic Solutions (and they are providing medical education modules to pass on the low-carb message even further).

Listen to Dr. Mary Vernon share with us an update on what’s happening with the low-carb science movement, why doing low-carb and low-fat diets at the same time is unhealthy, why diets like The Metabolism Miracle do not improve the Atkins diet, the reason she wanted to start Innovative Metabolic Solutions, her response to the sloppy scientific studies, the concept of metabolically-obese normal weight people, the role genetics plays in obesity and disease, the most important tests to determine the proper treatments for metabolic disorders, the role of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians in spreading the low-carb science to bariatric doctors, her hopes for the upcoming 2010 Dietary Guidelines, why offering the same diet advice for everyone is detrimental to the health of some people, her thoughts on the healthcare debate on Capitol Hill, the recommendations from the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association, the upcoming 3rd Annual Low-Carb Cruise to the Bahamas in March 2010, the concept of “fed”-starvation, the low-carb explosion happening in Sweden, the push for more outcome-based healthcare requirements, and how lay people can help spread the message of healthy low-carb living.
