Yes. Underlying assumption is that obesity/chronic disease will always be the public's fault: You ate the "right" foods? You ate too much. You counted calories? You ate the wrong foods. You ate "right" and counted calories? You're lying.

Eye opening experience today: I learned that Medicare actually paid $14,000 for the injection of a medication for psoriasis that is dosed every 3 months in one of my patients! The total was a jaw dropping $54K😳/year. You can buy a lotta grass fed beef for that kind of money.

So. Many. Questions. If "no one follows them" *when* did they "stop" following them? Or did they never start? If so, why not? Are they just stupid? How do the healthy people stay healthy since they don't follow them either? If *no one* follows them, why do we have them?

PB: has 5 more studies coming out. Evidence is now showing that its 'Almost NEGLIGENT of a doctor NOT to put type 2 diabetics onto a low-carb diet'.

Patient went in last night for repeat overnight sleep study for a new CPAP machine...using present for 7 yrs. Upset this morning when they never woke him up to try the new machine. "Sir, you don't have apnea anymore...are you on low carb diet?" Yes, down 25 lbs in 3 mos! Sweet!

It's sad how we've become such a "snack culture. " One of the most common questions I get is what I eat for a snack. That's easy. I don't. If you have to eat mini- meals between your actual meals, then your diet is wrong.

Did you know I was on the podcast with ? We talked about Alzheimer's, insulin, cholesterol, & more. It was *SO REFRESHING* to talk to a cardiologist who "gets it." Give a listen!

I just pledged! Make this documentary happen! We low carbers & keto folks have to stand up for healthy fats. Beef tallow, lard, bacon fat, butter ... fat is where it's at! 🥥🍳🥓🥩🧀

If you are in the circles talking about a ketogenic diet - you will be aware that it is said as a fact - 'too much protein turns into glucose, so eat low protein'. This belief is not backed up by scientific...

Good point. Unfortunate, but true. They are great successes, actually.

If she didn’t understand it before, that was a failure on the part of her previous doctors and/or nutritionists/dietitians. It’s a sad state of affairs these days when people are diagnosed with a medical condition and aren’t educated as to what it means.

It’s all good. Dave is a dear friend and he knows I wasn’t attacking him in anyway.

The A1c guidelines are arbitrary and too high. Elevated glucose is a continuous risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Diabetics deserve normal blood sugars.
