Remembering Kevin Moore

The LLVLC Show (Episode 473): Nevada State Health Officer Dr. Tracey Green Supports Low-Carb


NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: http://cmp.ly/3

In Episode 473 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” I am excited to share with you my interview with a physician from Sparks, Nevada named Dr. Tracey Green who was recently appointed to the highest position of health in her state when the governor there named her the Nevada State Health Officer. This prestigious distinction gives her a lot of power in shaping public policy as it relates to health in Nevada. That’s why I was encouraged when I found out that Dr. Green is not only a highly-qualified medical professional, but she also understands and values the benefits of carbohydrate-restriction as a therapeutic means for treating her patients. She is working hard on bringing about changes in obesity, diabetes, and other chronic disease rates in Nevada to serve as an example for other states to follow. Will a low-carb revolution happen in Nevada thanks to people like Dr. Tracey Green? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Listen to Dr. Tracey Green share about the state of health in Nevada:

  • How she was athletic but obese growing up
  • Her fateful meeting with a cardiologist that led her to low-carb
  • How a stomach doctor told her about ASBP/low-carb science
  • Why she changed things slightly to the Atkins approach to work for her
  • Her new “Inner Thin” program that’s bringing low-carb to her patients
  • The “physiological complaints” that are brought on by carbohydrates
  • Why LDL cholesterol and dietary fats are holding her fellow physicians back
  • How obesity and diabetes has gotten worse since low-fat diets ascended
  • Her experience speaking with 4th graders about nutrition
  • How reading nutritional labels makes people “mesmerized”
  • Why low-carb doctors must join arms and present their patient data publicly
  • The internal metabolic obesity afflicting many seemingly “healthy” people
  • Her disdain for the promotion of HFCS as healthy
  • Why she’s no fan of the “everything in moderation” mantra
  • The one group of people who NEED to eat carbohydrates
  • Why fat people aren’t lazy, but have an internal malfunction
  • Her comparison of 800 calories of red licorice with 800 calories of protein/fat
  • Why some exercise is important but not to excess to produce weight loss
  • Her commentary about The Biggest Loser television show
  • The excitement about doing a “vs.” version of the show with low-carb
  • How she is torn between promoting saturated fat and not
  • The one patient she had with familial hypercholesterolemia who needed meds
  • The number of oranges it takes to make one glass of orange juice
  • Why hunger-satisfying protein is such a vital part of a healthy low-carb diet
  • How she was appointed the Nevada State Health Officer
  • The obstacles she has face being a “low-carb doctor” in a powerful position
  • Why the “more fruits and vegetables” isn’t a clear enough message to promote
  • The nutritional changes she is fighting for to make happen in Nevada

      Jimmy, it’s “Nev-AD-a”, not “Nev-AH-da”.

      • Ha ha! That’s how we say it in the South. 😉

    • Fantastic show- Come East Dr Green, Come East. There are a lot of States that need OUR message from a very exciting and credible voice.

      • Wouldn’t you love to see her as the U.S. Surgeon General or the U.S. Secretary of Health & Human Services. That could happen someday!

    • Wow, now this gives me hope! Its encouraging to see someone at the state level being able to promote a food agenda that will actually help the population. Also, your insight about what a “free ride” sugar has been given is right on the money.
