Dr. Mary C. Vernon answers your low-carb questions on new blog
If you have been reading my blog for at least the past few months or so, then you have undoubtedly heard me talk about one of the strongest voices backing the low-carb nutritional approach out there today. Here name is Dr. Mary C. Vernon!
Dr. Vernon was kind enough to let me interview her in June 2006 about how the Atkins diet is continuing to be proven as an effective treatment for both weight management and the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. In fact, she presented the results of a landmark study with Dr. Eric Westman from Duke University at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association a few months ago about how simple changes in the diet can lead to vast improvements in the health of diabetes patients.
Now, in conjunction with a man named RIchard J. Rothstein, Dr. Vernon stands ready to answer any question related to diet, nutrition and health that you may have as it relates to livin' la vida low-carb at a brand spankin' new blog aptly titled "Ask Dr. Vernon." Be sure to read this introductory post to find out more about why they decided to do this at this time.
With all the misinformation floating around out there about the Atkins diet, Dr. Vernon is dead serious about offering honest answers to questions in the same manner the late great Dr. Robert C. Atkins would give if he were still around today.
"She does a spooky job of channeling Bob Atkins, applying his rigorous and passionate standards to the evolving body of nutrition research in preventive and therapeutic medicine," Rothstein wrote in the introductory blog post. "We will do our best to answer as many of your questions as possible."
WOW, what an opportunity for average people to get their questions answered by a real live low-carb expert. Dr. Vernon has been seeing patients in her clinic for a very long time and knows from whence she speaks. She has been helping patients and providing solid scientic research in the field of controlled-carbohydrate nutrition as long as anybody, so she is immensely qualified to answer virtually any and all questions you may have about livin' la vida low-carb.
So, I suppose you are wondering how to ask Dr. Vernon a question, eh? I thought you'd never ask. The e-mail address to send your questions to is available by clicking here. But Rothstein noted that you should be aware that not everyone who sends an e-mail will necessarily get a response posted at the blog.
"Email us and we'll answer questions as soon as is humanly possible," he explained. "Keep in mind that there are only two of us for now, so there may be a few days' delay in getting to your questions, but all reasonable questions will be answered."
That's fair, wouldn't you say? After all, they do have a life outside of this blog (and SO DO I! LOL!). But if you have a burning question that you've been dying to ask someone about low-carb living, then Dr. Vernon is the one who can answer it for you!
To get you started off right, be sure to read these excellent nutritional tips she provides as well as why Dr. Vernon believes the controversial Atkins diet is STILL a viable approach for treating diabetes. Nobody in the mainstream medical community is communicating information like this and it's about time somebody like Dr. Vernon is willing to stand up in defense of what is right.
Rothstein warned people to be ready to accept the truth even if it is not what they wanted to hear. This is especially true for anyone who thinks the Atkins diet is nothing more than eating all the meat, eggs, and cheese that you want. UGH!
"The Atkins Diet is not about cheeseburgers, bacon and big juicy steaks: that is one of the outrageous myths fostered by certain segments of the commercial food industry and the medical and nutrition communities that felt threatened economically and professionally by Dr. Atkins' belief in whole foods and his contempt for most processed and refined foods," he explained. "Additionally, contrary to the many myths about Atkins, many of his successful patients were practicing vegetarians so this is a site for all people who eat."
Oh, I KNOW I'm gonna LOVE reading this blog, I can tell already! :D Of course, I love seeing people stir the waters of debate because it gets all points of view on the table for consideration. And in the great debate over the various nutritional approaches for dealing with obesity and diabetes, among other conditions, livin' la vida low-carb deserves just as much of an opportunity to be heard as the rest.
