    Episode 225: Triple J

    Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Triple J has an amazing and inspiring story of hope. He found himself in a place of severe depression, in poor health, and in physical pain after going through a divorce. He was overweight and losing faith that he could ever recover when he decided to give the keto diet a try. His results and the multitude of positive changes that have happened in his life since then have been jaw-dropping. 
    In their conversation, Brian and Triple J talk about growing up in the South eating the Southern diet, divine intervention in a hopeless situation, the multifaceted benefits and positive effects that come from fixing your relationship with food, shedding ‘mental weight’ in addition to physical weight, the power of gratitude, and the power of believing in yourself.

Highly Recommend to EVERYONE, Not Just For Docs

I’ve been listening to this show for years and absolutely love it. Dr. Lenzkes and Dr. Tro interview a variety of experts as well as others who’ve overcome significant health problems by changing to a healthier lifestyle by implementing low carb. The transformations of health they’re seeing in their clinics is nothing short of amazing.

Anyone can learn from this show, but it should be required continuing education for doctors and nutritionists! Share with your docs so they can get up to speed with the latest on conquering obesity and poor metabolic health.

Wonderful podcast!

This is an amazing podcast with very relevant and helpful information in regards to low-carbohydrate diets. I highly recommend this show!

Lions not sheep

These docs are great! I’m perplexed that people can find out that we’ve been lied to about nutrition for decades and then leave because the docs are bold enough to question the vax.

Cognitive dissonance is strong, unfortunately.
