Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. Jeffry Gerber, a board-certified family physician and owner of South Suburban Family Medicine in Littleton, Colorado, where he is known as "Denver's Diet Doctor".
Dr. Jeffry has been providing individualized treatment to the local community since 1993, and he plans to maintain that tradition by focusing on lifespan, wellness, and prevention. Dr. Gerber has been focusing on prevention and treatment programs using low-carb high fat (LCHF), Ancestral, Paleo, and Primal diets to treat and prevent chronic conditions after becoming frustrated with spiralling healthcare costs related to the treatment of conditions such as overweight, obesity, diabetes, atherosclerosis, and heart disease, to name a few.
Dr. Gerber is also a co-organizer of the Low Carb Conferences, a yearly educational event for healthcare professionals and anyone interested in learning about the newest diet and health science. Healthcare practitioners can earn CME (Continuing Medical Education) credit.
In this episode, Dr. Jeffry discusses medical nutrition conferences and eating and recommends a low-carb diet. Listen in as Dr. Jeffry discusses the negative consequences of being unhealthy, calories, fat threshold, ketosis, and many other topics.

[09:44] Detrimental Reason for Being Unhealthy
88% of the US' population is metabolically unhealthy. The number one problem for people being unhealthy is the toxic food environment, such as processed and highly palatable foods. Most companies drive the reward centres of the consumers' brains, similar to a drug, which makes unhealthy products hard to avoid. [16:43] Calories In, Calories Out: Calories Matter
Eating less and exercising more, creating the negative energy balance that causes weight loss, is the standard advice for people who are dieting. However, it is not the most effective. A hormonal condition may be the number one factor in metabolic health and ideal body weight. Artificial dichotomy has two camps: the calorie camp, or the energy balance camp, and the hormonal camp or the insulin camp. Doctors and patients should consider the difference between deprivation and listening to your body. [26:15] Do You Know There’s a Personal Fat Threshold? What Is It’s Purpose?
The personal fat threshold has the ability to store fat as energy. Unhealthy fats are created when the subcutaneous fat can't store any more energy and goes into the viscera, and as the viscera creates abdominal fat, inflammation sets in. Americans have a much higher personal fat threshold than Asians. [36:53] The Continuous Glucose Monitor Is More Important Than You Think! Here’s Why
Some individuals want to start monitoring and preventing diabetes, yet potential conflict is present as conferences are only available for those with Type-2 Diabetes. Patients are often seen with high levels of CGM in the morning and low levels of CGM in the afternoon, but some patients are the opposite. Paying attention to how the individual feels, getting them on a scale, and doing a body composition, is almost better than doing CGM. [41:12] Do You Have Nutrition Concerns?
