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.
