'Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show' Episode 56: Dr. Kurt Kraft Fighting Obesity One Patient At A Time

Dr. Kurt Kraft helps his patients understand the "lifestyle change" concept

My next interview from the obesity conference sponsored by the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) in Nashville, Tennessee about a month ago is with bariatric physician Dr. Kurt Kraft. Although he's not an ardent believe in the low-carb lifestyle as a starting point for weight loss and disease management, he does use an Atkins low-carb dietary approach with his patients who are "carb sensitive." Listen to my interview with Dr. Kraft NOW:

As you can tell, I enjoyed my conversation with Dr. Kraft because you could tell he honestly cares about seeing his patients get healthy. He takes great pride in and is energized by the success that he sees his patients experiencing. We need more doctors who take such a vested interest in their patients as Dr. Kraft does.

He chooses to use the "healthy" approach with his patients when he first starts them off on their new lifestyle change--which means they eat a low-fat diet. But Dr. Kraft also emphasizes removing the sugar and refined carbohydrates from their diet to help get their blood sugars under control. Many patients continue to eat low-fat while others are placed on a low-carb diet. It's an individualized plan for the person losing the weight--not a one-size-fits-all program.

Dr. Kraft is certainly a doctor with a positive and jovial outlook on obesity treatment. What do you think about his methodology? Is the low-fat diet the right starting point for an effective and healthy weight loss plan? Tell me what you think about that and anything else Dr. Kraft said in my interview with him.
