Medication is Not the Only Answer to Losing Weight
Dr. Evan Allen, a physician board-certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine and the author of Oversaturated: A Guide to Conversations about Fats with Your Patients joins me to discuss the importance of eating a diet low in saturated plant and animal fats to significantly lower the risk of heart disease and strokes. We also discuss the importance of understanding how cholesterol, LDL, and HDL affect your health.
About Dr. Evan Allen
Dr. Evan Allen has been practicing medicine for a quarter century, and in that time, he’s opened two practices in Henderson, Nevada, and received board-certification from the American Board of Obesity Medicine. When Dr. Allen began to pay more attention to nutrition, the health of his patients improved. This discovery sent him on a search for a book like this one–a search that came up empty. With this book, Dr. Allen wants to give healthcare providers what he never had: a guide for talking to their patients about a healthy diet that’s low in saturated fat.
