Toronto, Ontario-based nephrologist, clinical fasting expert, and international bestselling author Dr. Jason Fung is our special 2016 Low Carb USA guest speaker featured in Episode 1271 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
Low Carb USA™ is an organization focused on dietary education and support by hosting scientific conferences, providing online coaching and mentoring, and legislative efforts. Low Carb USA™, founded in 2015, hosts educational public conferences at which scientists and doctors present their latest research findings into nutrition and the low-carb lifestyle. Online coaching and mentoring forums are offered to help people learn how to adopt this lifestyle and change their lives. A new initiative is also underway to support a unified coalition of communities advocating science based nutrition advice to influence the USDA to modify dietary guidelines using evidence-based research. For this effort, Low Carb USA™ is joining forces with journalist Nina Teicholz, author of the best-selling book The Big Fat Surprise and the Nutrition Coalition. In July of 2016, they brought together the world’s top medical and scientific minds on how nutrition can treat and prevent serious disease at the largest-ever low-carb conference.
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 Dr. Jason Fung, who earned his medical degree at the University of Toronto, where he also completed his internal medicine residency before heading to the University of California, Los Angeles, for his fellowship in nephrology. He currently practices as a kidney specialist in Toronto. He will be sharing his lecture titled “Therapeutic Fasting”. And if listening to these lectures gets you excited about attending the Low Carb USA conference coming up August 3-6, 2017 in San Diego California, 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.
