We are excited to be joined on the show this week by Dr. Eric Westman. While working as a VA Doctor, Dr. Westman had the opportunity to witness two of his patients have great success with a low-carb dietary intervention. Following this experience, he began to read books written on low-carb dieting and ended up meeting Dr. Atkins as a result of his research. Since then he has been following a low-carb diet personally, using low-carb to save lives, teaching people about low-carb, and doing research on the uses of low-carb diets.

In this episode we discuss the effects of the pervasive messaging of the conventional nutritional position on patients who could benefit from a low-carb intervention, the anxiety surrounding weight-regain, and the notion of ‘one size fits all’ diets.
