The Fat Burners Podcast - The Low GL Revolution

January 8, 2021

Firstly, welcome to my first podcast of 2021 and I wish you a happy and healthy new year. What better way to kick start 2021 by having a frank conversation about carbs, gaining weight, and losing blood sugar control.

My guest for today is an award-winning general practitioner, Dr. David Unwin, MD, known for pioneering the low-carb approach in the UK. In 2015, Dr. Unwin was made a UK Royal College of General Practitioners expert clinical advisor for his dedicated efforts within the areas of patient communication and type 2 diabetes. Then, in 2016, Dr. Unwin won the prestigious NHS Innovator of the Year award for his work with diabetes patients. In 2017 his practice saved £57,000 on drugs for type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and other conditions by offering patients a dietary alternative to medications. Also in 2018, Dr. Unwin was named the ninth most influential general practitioner in the UK by GP magazine Pulse. Moreover, he is a clinical expert in Diabetes and is a Fellowship of the UK Royal College of General Practitioners.

Brainstormers Series - How We Really Evolved

Brainstormers Series - How We Really Evolved

October 9, 2020

How did Homo Sapiens evolve and what were we eating? Around six million years ago our ancestral line splits from gorillas and chimpanzees with ever-increasing brain size until Homo Sapiens appears over 100,000 years ago. How did this happen? What were we eating and what does this tell us about our own optimum nutrition for brain health and why brain size is actually shrinking. To answer and explore these questions is my next guest, Peter Rhys-Evans, an ENT consultant and author of the Waterside Ape. Join me for the second in my Brainstormers podcast series.
