    The Exercise Rx with Beth Frates, MD

    The Exercise Rx with Beth Frates, MD

    Lisa is joined by Beth Frates, MD to talk about the many benefits of exercise in a way that might be new to you!

    Elizabeth (Beth) Pegg Frates, MD is a pioneer in Lifestyle Medicine education, is an award-winning teacher at Harvard, and currently works with patients to help them adopt and sustain healthy habits. Dr. Frates’s interest in and passion for wellness started well before medical school. When Dr. Frates was 18 years old, her father suffered a heart attack and a stroke. He was only 52 at the time. This event sparked her interest in medicine, physiatry, and stroke, in particular. Dr. Frates went on to graduate magna cum laude from Harvard College, majoring in both psychology and biology. She then attended Stanford Medical School, interned at Mass General Hospital, and completed her residency in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School where she served as Chief Resident. After residency, Dr. Frates focused on stroke with an emphasis on stroke prevention. Fascinated empowering people to adopt healthy habits, Dr. Frates pursued further training in behavior change through health and wellness coaching programs as well as motivational interviewing training.

    Since 1996, Dr. Frates has been on faculty at Harvard Medical School and has won multiple teaching awards for her work in many different pre-clinical core courses covering topics including nutrition, the musculoskeletal system, the central nervous system, the endocrine system, and an introduction to the medical profession. She also developed and taught a college Lifestyle Medicine curriculum at the Harvard Extension School, which is one of the most popular courses offered at the school and was chosen as a case study for successful courses. In an effort to guide other instructors and professors seeking to create their own Lifestyle Medicine program, Dr. Frates made the syllabus available online as a template through the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM).

    In 2008, Dr. Frates developed the concept of a Lifestyle Medicine Interest Group (LMIG) for medical schools that do not currently offer a course on Lifestyle Medicine and has been successfully running an LMIG at Harvard Medical School (HMS) since that time. These LMIGs offer a parallel curriculum for students interested in healthy habits to learn about basic concepts in Lifestyle Medicine through lunch and learn lectures. As Board Liaison for the Professionals In Training (PiT) at ACLM, Dr. Frates created standardized PowerPoints on Lifestyle Medicine basics, exercise prescription, nutrition, and behavior change for faculty and students wanting to launch LMIGs at their school. Dr. Frates and her family also created the Donald A. Pegg Award in memory of her father to provide additional support to students starting LMIGs and cover travel expenses to the national ACLM meeting. After being elected to the Board of Directors at ACLM, Dr. Frates continued to define the scope of this new specialty by serving as a board item writer for the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine, which is the first certifying body for Lifestyle Medicine. In recognition of these contributions, Dr. Frates was voted president of ACLM in August 2020.

    Dr. Frates is also an accomplished author, having published several books, medical textbooks, and calendars. After co-authoring a book titled “Life After Stroke: The Guide to Recovering Your Health and Preventing Another Stroke”, Dr. Frates spent a great deal of time lecturing and writing about health and prevention topics, including nutrition and exercise. More recently, her book titled “The Lifestyle Medicine Handbook: An Introduction to the Power of Healthy Habits”was included in a list of the 100 Best Medicine Books of All Time by BookAuthority.

    The Science and Practice of Keto with Gary Taubes

    The Science and Practice of Keto with Gary Taubes

    Lisa is joined by Gary Taubes an investigative science and health journalist and co-founder of the non-profit Nutrition Science Initiative (NuSI.org). He is the author of Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It and Good Calories, Bad Calories (The Diet Delusion in the UK). Taubes is the recipient of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator Award in Health Policy Research, and has won numerous other awards for his journalism. These include the International Health Reporting Award from the Pan American Health Organization and the National Association of Science Writers Science in Society Journalism Award, which he won in 1996, 1999 and 2001. (He is the first print journalist to win this award three times.) Taubes graduated from Harvard College in 1977 with an S.B. degree in applied physics, and received an M.S. degree in engineering from Stanford University (1978) and in journalism from Columbia University (1981).

    He joins Lisa to talk about his latest book, The Case for Keto: Rethinking Weight Control and the Science and Practice of Low-Carb/High-Fat Eating

    Here is the book description:
    Based on twenty years of investigative reporting and interviews with 100 practicing physicians who embrace the keto lifestyle as the best prescription for their patients' health, Gary Taubes gives us a manifesto for the twenty-first-century fight against obesity and diabetes.

    For years, health organizations have preached the same rules for losing weight: restrict your calories, eat less, exercise more. So why doesn't it work for everyone? Taubes, whose seminal book Good Calories, Bad Calories and cover stories for The New York Times Magazine changed the way we look at nutrition and health, sets the record straight.

    The Case for Keto puts the ketogenic diet movement in the necessary historical and scientific perspective. It makes clear the vital misconceptions in how we've come to think about obesity and diet (no, people do not become fat simply because they eat too much; hormones play the critical role) and uses the collected clinical experience of the medical community to provide essential practical advice. 

    Taubes reveals why the established rules about eating healthy might be the wrong approach to weight loss for millions of people, and how low-carbohydrate, high-fat/ketogenic diets can help so many of us achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life.
