Hi, it’s Dr. Jenn. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be talking to our next speaker. This is a man who needs no introduction, and he certainly needs no introduction if you stalk him like I do on social media. But given his scope of expertise, he’s probably the most important person to talk to on the topic that we’re going to talk about today, which is the 800-pound gorilla in the room. I would like to welcome Dr. Joel Kahn, America’s cardiologist, to the summit.

Dr. Kahn’s talk was inspiring, but as a former committed vegetarian who developed severe intolerance to (organic) soy and other legumes,as well as rising blood sugars, I would now find it impossible to control my Type 1 LADA diabetes on a diet high in carbohydrates. This talk left me feeling powerless and doomed to heart disease and cancer if I consume animal products.

Although I don’t consider myself to be in the carnivore camp, I would like to correct a mischaracterization of Dr. Atkins’ work and manner of death. Dr.Atkins may well have died WITH heart disease,but not necessarily from it. My understanding, as per his wife and others, is that his heart problems were from a previous infection, not his diet. Dr. Atkins died from a fall on icy pavement outside his New York office. While there were, perhaps, excesses in the popularized version of his diet, his main message was that a low carb diet can help to control blood sugars and weight.

Indeed, Dr. Richard K Bernstein (The Diabetes Solution) has demonstrated the same thing. Dr. Bernstein, a Type 1 diabetic, suffered severe diabetic complications while following the ADA recommended high carb diet. Dr. Bernstein experimented on himself and regained his health by reducing carbs, and thereby also his high insulin requirements to cover them. Dr. Bernstein pioneered home blood sugar monitoring, and a low carb diet to help others achieve normal blood sugars.

Diet is obviously, not a one size fits all.
