'Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show' Episode 126: Dr. Jeffry Gerber: 'Carbohydrate Is The Fuel For Obesity'

Dr. Jeffrey N. Gerber is a real physician who loves low-carb living

In Episode 126 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore", I had the distinct privilege of interviewing a medical doctor named Jeffry N. Gerber who has experienced a dramatic turnaround in the way he thinks about low-carb nutrition after seeing so much real life success in his patients. Now he shares his enthusiasm about livin' la vida low-carb not just with his patients, but also out in his local community in the Denver, Colorado area in featured talks. For those of you looking for a low-carb doctor, let the example of Dr. Gerber encourage you in your search. THEY DO EXIST!!!

I especially enjoyed hearing from Dr. Gerber that it's not the patient's fault they are in the weight and health condition they are in. While people certainly make the choices that get there them, most patients are simply going on the "conventional wisdom" that they've always heard about health. But in light of the latest research, these old axioms just don't cut it anymore which is why physicians like Dr. Gerber are coming around.

It's always nice to hear about doctors who are really helping their patients get healthier and are willing to educate themselves about nutrition.

You mentioned eating low enough carbs in order to be healthy.
I am wondering how to figure out my carb level.

I seem to be feeling less hungry, eating less and loosing more fat recently.
I also started gentle exercise twice a week.

But the last week or two, I've been getting some heartburn and shortness of breath.
I also continue to feel kind of jittery at bedtime and don't sleep as much.
Anyone else ever had any of these problems?

Is there a possibility that my carbs are too low and/or I'm eating too much fat and it's making me lose weight too fast?

A typical day of food would be:
1c. Fage yoghurt (20g fat 6g carbs)
sometimes a few strawberries
1 hand-sized piece of meat
2c. salad or veggies
(spinach, tomato, broccoli)
2 TBS sour cream, butter, or oil
1/2 a Chocoperfection bar
1 TBS peanut butter
1c. soymilk (3g carbs)
1 egg with mayo (if I get hungry)
1c. veggies (if I exercised)
2 TBS sour cream
6c. water

Do you have a post on figuring out the right carb level or any suggestions?
What should I try?

THANKS Tara! The foods you are eating look pretty good (except for the peanut butter and soy milk), but it doesn't look like you're eating very much food. Which low-carb plan are you following?

I'm not sure what is causing your symptoms, per se, but it doesn't appear your diet is even involved. Keep in mind you cannot overeat fat because your body will self-regulate your intake. Just make sure to keep your carbs at a level where you are comfortable eating and still losing weight (if that's your goal).

As for finding your carb level, I HIGHLY suggest you follow Dr. Atkins' ladder as outlined in his book DR. ATKINS' NEW DIET REVOLUTION. You start out at 20g carbs (mostly from green leafy veggies and other non-starchy ones) and work your way up in 5-gram increments each week until you find where you carbohydrate equilibrium is. Mine is very low for weight loss (35g) and is still low for maintenance (50g).

Get on a plan and stick with it!!! Hopefully your symptoms will subside soon. Don't automatically assume it's your diet necessarily, but keep an eye on it. THANKS for your comments!

Thanks for your help!

I'm doing Atkins. I love him, and have every edition of his book. :)

I'll check out the carb ladder, and keep eating lotsa fat - I love it! :)

I am a low carb dieter and have been for about a year now. But i always thought peanut butter and soy milk were ok as long as they were low in carb. Are they? Or do they have some affect on low carb weight loss?
