He was a football player and wrestler in high school
Always struggled with weight
Particularly in med school (plus, they didn't teach him
He couldn't figure out how to lose weight, so struggled to help
patients lose weight, too
Found a bunch of luminaries like Jason Fung who showed him the
way with low carb
Has lost tons of weight personally
Recently has begun recommending keto diet to his patients
Doctors in med school take things that they learn at face
It is NOT the patient's fault most of the time that they
struggle to lose weight
So much easier to think a drug fixes it, etc.
