Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Dr John Schoonbee is a medical doctor who has been working in the insurance field for over 20 years, and directly for reinsurers since 2005. Currently he is the Chief Medical Officer at Swiss Re for Europe, the UK and Ireland, Middle East, and Africa. Dr. Schoonbee is involved in many aspects of life insurance, including product development, risk and claims assessment, as well as helping with pricing some of the more complex medical life and health products.

In this conversation, Drs. Tro and John talk about what made John initially interested in medicine, learning from the great Tim Noakes, why changing health outcomes is dependent upon changing diet and lifestyle, how it became clear through an analysis of the data that the American Medical Association’s dietary guidelines are wrong, how Dr. John and his company work to make people healthier, the goal of the Society of Metabolic Health Practitioners, and the mental/emotional health improvements linked to low-carb diets.
