So what are the medical benefits of a low carb diet? In an interview with the Diet Doctor, Peter Attia discusses the benefits of low carb diets and just how low carb you can go. Attia is a medical doctor, blogger and an endurance athlete. He talks about how he gradually moved from a conventional low-fat/high-carb diet to a low-carb/high-fat/moderate protein diet.
The move happened when he couldn’t figure out why he was gaining weight (40 pounds) despite regular exercise and eating the recommended conventional diet.
In addition to conducting research and interviewing experts, he’s experimented on himself to gain insights on the low-carb diet and its impact on physical and mental performance.
It’s an interesting interview.
