Duke University medical school students Peter Wei and Alex Chamessian are our interview guests today in Episode 727 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
If you've been listening to this podcast over the years when Jimmy has had conversations with medical doctors, then you already know these physicians are lucky if they received one, maybe two weeks worth of nutritional education as part of their formalized training for treating their future patients. This doesn't sit too well with a future generation of medical professionals who are rising up to take a stand for the integral role diet plays in overall health.
A couple of medical school students at Duke University named Peter Wei And Alex Chamessian discovered the power of low-carb living and are now trying to communicate that message with their fellow students. They're doing this through a new book entitled Learning Medicine: An Evidence-Based Guide as well as connecting with their fellow medical school students who are also supporters of a low-carb/Paleo/primal diet at AncestralMed.org. Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Peter and Alex about this critically important endeavor to teach medical school students about the effectiveness of nutritional health protocols.
