Continuous Glucose Monitoring: A Pathway to Optimizing Health, Part 1

Dr. Paul Kolodzik, Board Certified in both Emergency Medicine and Preventive Medicine, is author of “The Continuous Glucose Monitor Revolution For Nondiabetics.” He discusses CGMs, insulin resistance, low carb and keto, intermittent fasting, even the prudent use of the new FDA-approved weight loss medications like Ozempic.

ENCORE: Customizing Your Carb Intake for Optimal Health, Part 1
February 14, 2023
Dr. Eric Westman is a leading proponent of the low-carb diet paradigm, and co-author of "End Your Carb Confusion: A Simple Guide to Customize Your Carb Intake for Optimal Health." He relates how he was a young physician at Duke University Medical Center—renowned for the ultra low-fat Rice Diet Program—when he first heard about the Atkins Diet and began a fruitful decades-long collaboration with the Atkins Foundation. He’s developer of the Adapt Your Life Academy Keto Made Simple Master Class. His research has validated the safety and effectiveness of the low-carb diet. Why has prevailing nutrition science disparaged low-carb and keto diets? How strictly must you adhere to low-carb to reap its benefits? Is criticism warranted that, while it may produce weight loss in the short term, it may be harmful in the long-run? What about all those “keto” products out there? Is it necessary to use sophisticated gadgets to gauge whether you’re in ketosis? Should transient rises in LDL cholesterol dissuade people from adhering to a low-carb diet? Can you implement a low-carb diet if you don’t eat meat? Are low-calorie sweeteners allowed? Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: The Benefits of High-Fat, Low-Carb Dieting, Part 1
December 27, 2022
"The Case for Keto" by Gary Taubes, the science writer and investigative journalist who’s famous for writing a game-changing 2002 NY Times Magazine article entitled “What if it’s All Been a Big Fat Lie?” The Case for Keto traces the history of diet theories pertaining to obesity, and argues we’ve taken a major wrong turn in our approaches. Instead of following the science, we’ve demonized fat and animal protein, and urged patients to follow a carbohydrate-rich, plant-based diet while exercising to “burn off calories”; this paradigm has failed miserably, with ever-escalating percentages of Americans overweight and developing metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Drawing from research, interviews with hundreds of experts, and his own personal experience, Taubes describes the benefits of high-fat, low-carb dieting. He explains why insulin metabolism is crucial to our understanding of why people can’t mobilize fat and experience hunger on most diet plans. He emphasizes that it is important to distinguish between diabetic ketoacidosis which is a medical emergency and ketosis which is a normal physiologic state. Taubes addresses some of the common stumbling blocks encountered by people undertaking keto diets. Click HERE for part 2.
