568: Dr. Eric Westman And Dr. Mary Vernon Respond To Gastric Bypass Surgery ‘Cures’ Diabetes Study


Bariatric physicians and low-carb practioners Dr. Eric Westman and Dr. Mary Vernon are our guests today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!


Dr. Westman and Dr. Vernon are two of the leading voices in bariatrics and low-carb diets. They are the President-Elect and a past President respectively of The American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) with a unique perspective when it comes to treating patients dealing with obesity and diabetes. When Jimmy read about the recent study touting gastric bypass weight loss surgery as the “cure” for Type 2 diabetes, he had to have two of his expert friends come on the podcast to respond. Don’t miss the full details and analysis of this new study from two prominent practitioners using carbohydrate-restriction for their obese and diabetic patients. Plus, you’ll learn more about the upcoming ASBP/Nutrition & Metabolism Society conference in Denver, Colorado happening next week April 18-22, 2012 that will feature some of the latest science supporting low-carb diets. Here’s the scheduled line-up for this event:

    I live in Denver and would love to see these two speak but there doesn’t seem to be any way for a layperson to get in. Also it’s expensive even for doctors!

    Same old “experts”, Jimmy… Why don’t you do something truly maverick and get people like CarbSane, Dr. Kurt Harris, or Matt Stone back in front of the microphone?

    @ Freddie,

    Because they would disagree with him! Duh! LOL. Heck, Dr. Harris has already publicly disavowed him (why he’s still on Jimmy’s blogroll is curious indeed), Matt Stone wrote the infamous “Poor Poor Jimmy Moore” article calling him out years before anyone else, and Carb Sane, well, she’s a virtual one-woman cottage industry of LLVLC criticism. She was the one who exposed everything from Cruisegate (check it out on YouTube) to n=1gate (how the much-publicized n=1 experiments ended just before getting to major sponsors). So yeah, not gonna appear in front of Jimmy’s microphone anytime soon. Everyone knows she’s been blackballed – Nemesis Numero Uno in Jimmy-land…

    Leave Jimmy alone, ya’ll, He’s doing the Lord’s work – and we all KNOW that Jesus would be low-carb. It’s in the Bible somewhere.

    Jimmy, why do you let jokers like this post all over your site?? Their clearly making a mockery of what you do. Anyway I wouldnt put up with it. Anyone know’s your awesome & shouldn’t be questioned. More than likely their jealous (case of sour grapes I’d say). And that Carb Sane – well, someone aught to take her off the Internets.

    God Bless, my friend.
