Low Carb Lectures
Watch video presentations conducted by leading experts in the field of low-carbohydrate nutrition research. Topics span from the efficacy of low-carb dietary interventions for the management of chronic diseases to breaking down the basics of nutritional ketosis.
Can a person be “cured” of Type 2 Diabetes? Dr. Sarah Hallberg provides compelling evidence that it can, and the solution is simpler than you might think.
Dr. Kushner, McNair Medical Institute Scholar and an Associate Professor at the Baylor College of Medicine, provides an overview of type 1 diabetes pathophysiology, health outcomes, and medical nutrition therapy guidance.
In this lecture, filmed at the Emerging Science of Carbohydrate Restriction and Nutritional Ketosis, Scientific Sessions at The Ohio State University, Dr. Kushner delves into common misperceptions about dietary macronutrient balance and innovative interventions for the treatment of type 1 diabetes.
Dr. Ron Krauss, Senior Scientist and Dolores Jordan Endowed Chair at Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute, Professor of Medicine at UCSF, and Adjunct Professor of Nutritional Sciences at UC Berkeley, offers an in-depth look diet’s impact on atherogenic dyslipidemia, a risk factor for heart disease and a key component of metabolic syndrome.
Dr. Phinney, UC Davis (Emeritus), discusses the history of low-carbohydrate diets and provides an overview of keto-adaptation, the metabolic shift from relying mostly on glucose for fuel to relying mostly on fat-based sources.
Dr. Volek, The Ohio State University, and Dr. Phinney, UC Davis (Emeritus), describe the body of scientific evidence over the last 15 years documenting long-term benefits of low-carbohydrate diets and the molecular mechanisms underlying the effects of nutritional ketosis and keto-adaptation.
Dr. Hallberg, former medical director at Virta Health and former adjunct professor at Indiana University School of Medicine, underscores that type 2 diabetes is reversible. She shares results from case studies and randomized control trials assessing the effects of carbohydrate-restricted dietary interventions on glycemic control, weight, and medication management.
