Seattle, Washington-based board-certified family medicine practitioner and low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet proponent Dr. Ted Naiman is our interview guest today Episode 872 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
The medical profession has reached a point where many doctors and nurses are finally opening their eyes to the critical role that nutrition and fitness is playing on the health of their patients. While medical school is teaching them how to manage diseases primarily with prescription medications and very little emphasis on diet, people like board-certified family medicine physician Dr. Ted Naiman from "Burn Fat Not Sugar" who practices at the Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, are taking matters into their own hands and doing what works best for their patients. The 42-year old first learned about low-carb diets when he was an intern and heard about it from a patient who reversed the ill effect of his Type 2 diabetes with the Atkins diet. When he went to medical school, Dr. Naiman ignored the discouragement from his instructors and started researching the macronutrients and the impact they have on health. What he discovered about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets astounded him and he's been recommending them ever since.
Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Naiman discuss his years as a vegetarian, how a low-carb, high-fat diet has dramatically improved his health, his goal to tell as many people as possible about the ketogenic lifestyle, his FREE Diet And Exercise 2.0 iPad app, why he's been tracking triglyceride/HDL ratios in his patients and why he believes this is one of the most important metrics in tracking his patients, his two-ingredient secret to optimum health, why nutrient-density with minimal toxins is important in finding the best diet, the type of exercise that produces the maximum results, why he uses minimal body weight exercise and a very low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet personally, and a whole lot more! It's always a fascinating conversation when Jimmy interviews enlightened medical professionals and Dr. Naiman doesn't disappoint.
