Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Dr. Christine Najjar is a Board Certified Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine physician. She studied biochemistry at McGill University, earned a Masters in Nutrition at Columbia University while finishing medical school at the same time. She did her Internal Medicine residency at University of Connecticut.
In this episode, Tro and Christine talk about the Armenian and Lebanese diets, the severe lack of good nutritional information in medical education, why the calories-centric model of weight loss is not sufficient for dealing with weight loss, why the academic nutritional community is stuck in this old calories/energy way of thinking, the importance of paying attention to how you feel and getting your information from objective data, and what the ideal patient looks like.
