Dr. Larry Richardson believes the obese need more education
It's Thursday again, so you know what that means--another EXCITING interview with a bariatric physician from my recent trip to the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) obesity conference in Nashville, Tennessee. In today's Episode 60 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore," we hear from Dr. Larry Richardson from Spring, Texas talk about his strategy for helping the obese get healthy. Click "Play In Popup" or "Download" below and LISTEN NOW:
Dr. Richardson is a past president of ASBP, so he is obviously very passionate about the subject of diet and health. We discussed in the interview the various approaches currently being used to treat obesity, including the infamous Phen-Phen debacle all the way to the recently-released over-the-counter version of Xenical called Alli. He says people need to find what works for them and "stop the blame game" using their thyroid or other such excuses for not losing weight. AMEN!

Dr. Richardson was quite open to the use of the low-carb lifestyle to help his patients who would do well on such a weight loss plan. But he even admits in my interview that the late Dr. Robert C. Atkins was quick to note that he eats carbs and the right diet method for long-term success is up to the individual to tailor according to their individual needs. Tell me what you think about Dr. Richardson and his approach to helping the obese.
Also, I shared in Episode 60 a little about my experience being filmed for the upcoming obesity documentary called INSPIRED: The Movie. Video clips and photos from the filming coming soon as well as an update on my brother Kevin who has begun to lose weight and will be appearing in the movie with me, too! EXCITING STUFF!
