Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.
Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!
