A radiologist with Type 1 diabetes Dr. Troy Stapleton and Australian general practitioner Dr. Zeeshan Arain are featured in these lectures from the 2013 Low Carb Down Under Seminar Series today in Episode 760 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
HAPPY NEW YEAR! We continue on with the great lectures from the recent 2013 Low Carb Down Under Seminar Series that took place in Melbourne, Australia in November 2013 featuring compelling presentations from many of the leading voices on the subject of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diets in the South Pacific. With gratitude to Dr. Rod Tayler (listen to Jimmy's interview with him in Episode 578) for granting exclusive access to these invaluable talks, we are excited to be sharing these with you to kick off the new year the right way. Jimmy and Christine are so excited that they'll be returning to Australia and New Zealand later this year for the 2014 Low Carb Down Under Tour--check LowCarbDownUnder.com.au in the coming months for full details.
EPISODE 758: Professor Grant Schofield and Christine Cronau
Today's featured lectures are with Dr. Troy Stapleton, a 42-year old radiologist who learned in October 2012 that he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and he started the standard diabetic dietary recommendations (low-fat diet with "healthy" whole grain intake) for two months after his diagnosis. After that failed him, he did some extensive research and switched over to a very low-carbohydrate diet in December 2012 with remarkable success. Listen to hear his personal journey and the science behind the LCHF approach. Here's the video footage of this presentation from the 2013 Low-Carb Down Under Seminar Series:
Then you'll hear from Dr. Zeeshan Arain, a Melbourne-based General Practitioner and current team doctor for the Melbourne Demons AFL team. His initial interest in nutrition and metabolism began several years ago when he was increasingly frustrated at being overweight despite eating a low-fat diet and exercising regularly. He has become a staunch advocator of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) nutrition in the prevention of disease, weight loss and optimum quality of life. His presentation shares about his experience using nutritional ketosis with a variety of health benefits including weight loss, diabetes control, cardiovascular disease, cancer and more.
