If you need low-carb support, then Dr. Mary C. Vernon is on your side
My trip to Nashville, Tennessee earlier this month for the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) obesity conference has give me plenty of podcast material for the next several months. I will be airing a series of interviews with bariatric physicians across the country to encourage and educate you about what is being done to help the overweight and obese shed the pounds and get healthy.
It was so inspiring to hear from these dedicated and devoted doctors, including the president of ASBP who is helping her patients in Lawrence, Kansas overcome great obstacles in their health, including diabetes and obesity. Her name is Dr. Mary C. Vernon and I was fortunate enough to have her sit down for a 15-minute interview to talk about livin' la vida low-carb.
Listen to our historic Episode 50 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore" (50 shows down and many more to come!) from one of the true giants working on the frontlines of real-life application of the low-carb lifestyle with such tremendous results:
There is no more enthusiastic low-carb supporter in the medical community today than Dr. Vernon and her passionate desire to see her patients get healthy is very infectious. This woman exudes confidence because she knows the facts are on her side in the many scientific studies that have and are continuing to pour in about livin' la vida low-carb.
Even my fellow blogger Laura Dolson from About.com's Low-Carb Diets site noticed that while she was there (hey Laura, it was GREAT to meet you at last!). Let me know if you agree with me and Laura that we need more people like Dr. Vernon trumpeting the cause of low-carb to the masses. Share your comments and let me know what you think about this incredible woman.

I hope you are able to listen to all of Episode 50 because Dr. Vernon doesn't hold back. She talks about why she uses low-carb as a starting point for her patients who come to her, where low-carbers can go to find pro-low-carb doctors like herself, and something simple advocates of this way of eating can do to bring about more funding of the scientific studies into low-carb diets. It's all in my interview with her in today's podcast.
