Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Doug Reynolds is the Founder and CEO of LowCarbUSA. The original organization was founded in the beginning of 2016 with the initial intention of providing a platform, through an annual conference, for internationally renowned scientists and medical practitioners to present the ever-increasing body of evidence on the benefits of reducing carbohydrates in the diet (and adding in healthy fats). He felt that education about the power of the low carb/ketogenic diet for the individual who may not get the information from their medical team or from mainstream nutrition advice, and for practitioners who may then be able to prescribe it in their practice was critical. The tools and resources LowCarbUSA has been providing, not only includes the live conferences, but also a huge library of educational videos, a growing database of practitioners, and nutritionists and sports trainers who are open to the carb restriction conversation as well as a searchable database for papers and articles covering the research into the evidence supporting this lifestyle.
In this episode, Brian and Doug talk about the SMHP, the upcoming Symposium for Metabolic Health in San Diego, CA, the purpose of the SMHP, the mental health connection with diabetes and diet, processed food addiction, changing your mindset/relationship with regard to food, the necessity of learning to manage and deal with stress, the exercise component of mental and metabolic health, connecting with people and prioritizing community/relationships, and balancing research with clinical experience.
