Remembering Kevin Moore

The LLVLC Show (Episode 563): Dr. Jeffrey Gerber Details The Low-Carb Connection To Fat Reform


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

In Episode 563 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we welcome back to the podcast (listen to my previous interview with him in Episode 126) a physician who refers to himself as “Denver’s Diet Doctor”–Dr. Jeffry Gerber! Dr. Gerber is a man on a mission in his hometown of Denver, Colorado because he’s a strong believer in the nutritional principles of carbohydrate-restriction. He has set his eyes on making dramatic changes to the way we go about treating obesity in the United States by embarking on a lecture entitled “Fat Reform, Obesity, Food Politics, The Cost Of Healthcare, The Perils Of Dietary Carbohydrates” in which he outlines how dietary carbohydrates like whole grains that are promoted by government agencies such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) are actually leading to higher healthcare costs because of the long-term health consequences associated with obesity and chronic disease that come from eating these very foods deemed as “healthy.” There’s a serious need for reform in the way we treat obesity in America that needs to take place and Dr. Gerber is certainly doing his part to help make that happen through his many lectures on the subject. Listen in to hear him share his vision for bringing about a much-needed paradigm shift in the way people view the benefits that come from being on a low-carb diet.

You can watch Dr. Gerber’s one-hour lecture on this topic here:
