Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and medical bariatrician Dr. Spencer Nadolsky is our interview guest today in Episode 880 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
Self-experimentation when it comes to the subject of nutrition and health is an absolute must. The quantified self movement is growing by leaps and bounds because patients are so fed up with the failure of the current model for healthy living being used by conventional medicine that they've grabbed back control of their own health and doing their own n=1 experiments to test how their body responds to any given stimuli. But today's podcast interview guest isn't just some patient--he was traditionally trained in medical school and has been treating patients himself as their medical doctor. His name is Dr. Spencer Nadolsky (listen to his previous interview on the show in Episode 552), an osteopath and obesity medicine specialist in Virginia, who decided to test the controversial dietary waters by shifting his meals over from low-carb to high-carb to see what would happen.
Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Nadolsky discuss his recent bodybuilding show, why counting macronutrients and calories were a critical element in helping him reach his body composition goals while maintaining excellent metabolic health, his foray into wanting to experiment with a high-carb diet to see what would happen, the reaction he received from the low-carb community to his n=1, and a whole lot more. It's an interesting chat about keeping an open mind and never getting too dogmatic about what you believe regarding nutritional health. ENJOY!
