I travelled to Denver Colorado last week for the Low Carb Denver Conference. Three days of talks given by the big names in the Low Carb field. I had met many of them already but there were many I had yet to meet. Dr David Unwin, a GP (General Practitioner) with the Uk's National Health Service is one person I was most excited to meet. He is leading the charge in using diet as a way to reverse the big chronic diseases and obesity with less spending of drugs. His practice has the highest scores in treating diabetes while simultaneously spending the least amount on drugs! Of course you've probably guessed his secret. It's by getting his patients to eat less carbs. He created the little card I'm holding. I use it in my practice. It shows how many sugar teaspoon equivalents are in common foods. It is quite shokcki to many as a lot of foods they think are good for diabetes are really loaded with glucose. I also patterned my diet handout after his. He is also kind and soft spoken. In short he's a real role model.
Dr. Unwin's practice gets top diabetes results and spends the least amount of drugs!
