Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. We are honored to be joined on the show by Dr. Tarek Arab MBChB FRCSC FACOG. Dr. Arab is a gynecologist and obstetrician. He began his medical training at King Abdulaziz Medical School in Saudi Arabia, did his residency at the University of Ottawa and later at Manitoba, and did his ultrasound fellowship at the University of Ottawa. He is an absolute wealth of knowledge when it comes to understanding the link between insulin resistance, obesity, and PCOS. He is also a faculty member at the University of Jeddah.
In our discussion with Dr. Arab, we cover a range of topics including the relationship between insulin resistance, saturated fats, obesity, and various cancers, whether ketone bodies are harmful, beneficial, or neutral to cancer patients, the impact the mind—and especially stress—has on the body, philosophy of medical education, and the importance of continuing to be curious and skeptical as a doctor after med school.
