Prior to 2010, Dr. Peter Attia was a typical medical doctor who was trained well in prescribing medications for a variety of chronic diseases. But he decided the typical high-carb, low-fat diet he was on was not optimal for managing his weight and health and he embarked on an incremental journey to start livin’ la vida low-carb. First he cut sugar, then other white carbohydrates, then starchy carbohydrates and finally cut carbs down to 50g daily along with reducing protein to 120g per day. The result was lower body fat, improved cardiovascular markers and a marked improvement in his athletic performance.

Dr. Attia has continued to learn everything he can get his hands on about nutrition and experimenting on himself to see what works. Through his friendship with former podcast guest Gary Taubes and others, everything he thought he knew about nutrition was just plain wrong. That’s why he decided to throw his hat into the arena of ideas by creating his new blog “The War On Insulin (And The Defense Of Fat)” in 2012 to help communicate the lessons he has learned from his perspective as a physician. Don’t miss this man on a mission to educate the world about the carbohydrate-insulin connection to obesity and disease!
