A Doctor Talks about LCHF
« on: March 09, 2016, 10:10:46 PM »
This blog appeared on A Sweet Life Org and is by a now retired doctor that uses low carb high fat (LCHF) to manage his type 1 diabetes and assist him in sports.  He remains active with swimming, cycling, scuba diving, and more recently olympic weightlifting.

He discusses why many doctor can be hesitant about LCHF and then how to turn hesitant doctors to your plan and prove to them that is does work.

It is sad but true. The current curriculum for medicine hardly has any Nutrition being taught to doctors. This Dr admits to 2 weeks of Nutrition classes, here in India it is just 1 week. I have that on record from many doctors.
