Associate professor of medicine at Duke University Health System and director of the Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic Dr. Eric Westman is our special 2016 Low Carb Vail guest speaker featured in Episode 1209 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
Over the past few years we have seen increased interest in the subject of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets which has driven consumer demand for more information about it in books and in events featuring the latest information about eating and living this way. Dr. Rod Tayler, an anesthetist in Melbourne, Australia, got inspired to offer these exact kind of conferences for those living there called Low Carb Down Under beginning in 2012. But in 2016, he decided to take this format he's perfected in Oz to America. Joining his friend and medical colleague Denver's Diet Doctor Dr. Jeff Gerber, they took their love for LCHF and skiing to create the Low Carb Vail conference that took place in Vail, Colorado last February featuring all the best of the best names in the low-carb and ketogenic community sharing from their vast array of knowledge and experience on this topic.
Listen in as you will hear various lectures from that conference on "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" podcast all month long to give you a taste of what this event was all about. Today's lecture is from an associate professor of medicine at Duke University Health System and director of the Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic named Dr. Eric Westman who will be sharing his lecture entitled "LCHF and Diabetes: Theory and Clinical Experience." And if listening to these lectures gets you excited about attending the Low Carb Breckenridge conference coming up February 24-26, 2017 in Breckenridge, Colorado, then GET YOUR TICKETS NOW for this awesome event featuring lots of familiar names and maybe a few new ones as guest speakers who will share more of their knowledge for you to soak in. This conference is great cross between the really science-heavy conferences and the consumer-driven ones for the perfect balance of education and inspiration in your own low-carb lifestyle! Our host Jimmy Moore is excited to be speaking there again this year and hopes to see you there.
