Metabolism Society Symposium Coming To Seattle In April 2010

Filed under: Events,Health — @ February 9, 2010

The science behind carbohydrate restriction promoted by Metabolism Society

If you are an active member of the growing low-carb community and are not already familiar with the great work of The Metabolism Society, then I urge you to team up with this incredible organization because they are working hard to change the conversation about nutrition and health by revealing the truth that science is showing us about the amazing benefits of carbohydrate restriction. They believe that livin’ la vida low-carb is “under-investigated and under-utilized” and have asserted that they will continue to “support research in this area.” Please consider making a contribution to The Metabolism Society TODAY!

The Metabolism Society has been leading the charge ever since the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins was taken from us in 2003. His legacy with low-carb diets is what drives the science to confirm much of what he shared with real patients for decades prior to his untimely death early in the 21st Century. As has been the case for the past few years, The Metabolism Society has piggybacked on an established conference with weight loss doctors who are members of The American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) to offer physicians wanting to offer their overweight, obese, and diabetic patients another treatment option. With the onslaught of quality research that has been released in recent years, it is imperative that these medical professionals are given as much information as they can possibly obtain to best assist their patients with the latest strategies.

I’ve been stunned to watch the growth in interest about low-carb diets among the bariatric physicians build and build each year and yet another Metabolism Society Symposium is scheduled for Seattle, Washington in April 2010. As just a layman who seeks to educate, encourage, and inspire others to seek out the truth about what they’ve heard about diet, health, and nutrition, I’m stoked about the positive impact that The Metabolism Society is having on our culture one doctor, nutritionist, and clinician at a time.

The Seattle Metabolism Society Symposium will be a two-day event taking place at the Hilton Seattle Hotel & Conference Center beginning on Saturday, April 17, 2010 with a focus on “A Carbohydrate Restriction Clinical Practice Guideline” designed to help physicians understand what it would be like to set themselves up as one of the growing low-carb doctors practicing this nutritional therapy with their patients. Then on Sunday, April 18, 2010, a full “Update on Low Carbohydrate Diet Research” will be presented by the real movers and shakers in the low-carb scientific community. The objective of this course will be to educate on the possible role that carbohydrates play in certain medical conditions, how to implement and educate patients low-carb diets, recognizing the powerful effects of low-carb nutrition on hormones, understanding the very latest low-carb research, and to provide dietary solutions to patients with nontraditional obesity ailments.

Anyone living in the greater Seattle area who would like to learn more about low-carb diets and their impact on health should consider attending as well as medical professionals where you will get to rub elbows with the researchers in person.
