Let The List Of Low-Carb Doctors Begin

I've been dreaming of doing something quite ambitious ever since I found out that there are actually physicians out there willing to use a healthy low-carb nutritional approach to assist their patients with losing weight and vastly improving their diseases. And this new web site is going to see that dream come to reality since I have been unable to find anything like it on the Internet.

What I want to do here is begin compiling a list of all the low-carb doctors across the United States and around the world so that people who want to learn more about this miraculous way of eating and how it can change their life like it did for me and so many more can find a friendly, caring physician ready to help them do it the right way. Too often we are left to our own devices without any medical assistance when we start on a diet. Use this resource to find doctors who will SUPPORT you, not BLAME you for your obesity and disease.

For the purposes of this resource, I am defining "low-carb" as anything that is 100 grams or less daily, which includes most of the popular low and lower-carb plans such as The Zone, South Beach, Atkins, Protein Power, and the like. Some of these diets the doctors on this list embrace are ketogenic low-carb diets, but some are not. The point of this listing is to help you identify those who are not opposed to cutting down on your carbohydrate intake--controlling your carbs--for the purposes of reducing your weight and improving your health. We all have individualized needs towards those purposes, so the doctors on this list are aware of the customized plan that will work for you.

Especially if you are diabetic or have some sort of condition that requires you to take prescription medications (like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc.), you will want to find a low-carb doctor who will educate you and monitor your progress by keeping your drug intake at the proper level. Don't be surprised when you are able to get off of all of your medications for good. WOO HOO! It's coming!!!

If you know a good low-carb doctor who does not currently appear on my list of low-carb doctors, then please e-mail me the information so I can add him or her immediately. I want this to be the most comprehensive low-carb doctor list anywhere, so THANK YOU for your assistance.

When you contact one of these physicians in your area, be sure to tell them you heard about them from this blog. They need our support and should be applauded for being willing to use a nutritional method for treating obesity and disease that goes against what they were taught in medical school and from what is widely used by their peers. These are some of the real heroes of livin' la vida low-carb in my book.
