The LLVLC Show (Episode 565): Dr. Luan Pho Shares How Low-Carb Is The Center Of His ‘Health And Vitality Truths’


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

In Episode 565 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are pleased to have a board-certified internal medicine physician from Allen, Texas named Dr. Luan Q. Pho joining us for a fascinating conversation about his unique approach to treating his patients nutritionally. Dr. Pho is dedicated to making his patients healthy by implementing some simple lifestyle intervention methods for getting there. One of those highly-effective modalities includes low-carb living and he’s committed to helping people cut down on the amount of carbohydrates they are consuming while increasing their intake of protein which he believes is the key to weight loss and health success. He’s the author of a must-read book entitled Health and Vitality Truths where he outlines the Micro/Macro Rx–the supplementation of specific nutrients along with a healthy diet to keep chronic disease at bay. This dietary intervention can produce weight loss, lower diabetes risk and even reverse gray hairs (as Dr. Pho recently shared in a guest blog post). Tune in to hear what Dr. Pho has to share about how you too can be optimally healthy through nutrition.

Listen to Dr. Luan Pho share his plan for getting patients healthy:

  • Why he wanted to become a physician in the United States
  • His lack of nutritional education although patients expected it
  • Why he decided to start learning more about nutrition
  • His father’s Parkinson’s disease led him to nutrition
  • He discovered this podcast that helped shape his thoughts
  • Lacking dopamine is the key element of Parkinson’s disease
  • Dopamine is dependent on amino acids (protein)
  • The Standard American Diet is “not a good diet”
  • Even a vegetarian diet is predicated on carbohydrate
  • What his patients think about the concepts he shares
  • His book makes the complex science understandable
  • The Micro/Macro Rx concept that he shared in the book
  • Truth bombs galore scattered throughout his book
  • The Vitamin D connection to improving diabetes
  • Your Vitamin D should be at least above 50, ideally 60-65
  • Giving the right diet to diabetics can eliminate medications
  • Moderating protein intake instead of consuming too much
  • The grain-promoting has very little to do with health
  • How we can take back the food supply for better health
  • Why there’s such an obsession about calories
  • A lot of people realize carbohydrates cause health problems
  • Unfortunately, people don’t recognize the carb counts
  • Protein needs to be much higher in content than carbohydrate
  • The carbohydrate/protein ratio should always be less than 1
  • Minimal amount of protein needed is half your body weight in grams
  • With his Vietnamese background, how does low-carb fit in?
