Low Carb for MEN

Psst…Hey, you. Yeah, you. The tough guy who doesn’t want to see a nutritionist. Especially not one of those holistic-types, who might whip out a Ouija board and tell you to chant and eat tofu when Saturn is rising in Aquarius…or something.

Come here for a sec. And bring those two guys with you. Yeah, the ones over there—the middle-aged one with the paunch and the high blood pressure, and the young one, too. The twenty or thirty-something CrossFitter whose libido disappeared and whose strength gains have gone nowhere in the last three months.

Do you want to do something about the excess weight, the heartburn, and the high cholesterol before your doctor whips out a prescription pad and sentences you to a lifetime of ineffective drugs?

How about getting back the pep in your step? The zest for life, the power, the vigor & virility
you lost somewhere along the way?  

He’s still inside you somewhere. Let’s bring him out again.

Fellas, have you been putting off seeing a nutritionist because you’re afraid she’ll make you swap out burgers and bacon for soy shakes and lentils?

Rest assured: I am SO NOT THAT GIRL.

May I be blunt? We’re all friends here, right? Okay, good. Here’s the deal. Most of what “the experts” have told us about weight loss and healthy diets is bullshit. There. I said it. Think about it: we did what They told us to. (Yes, that’s “They,” with a capital T.) We swapped out egg yolks for whites only; we switched from whole milk to skim; we ate more chicken and fish and saved red meat for only once in a while. We ate lots of whole grains and went light on foods higher in calories, cholesterol, total fat, and especially saturated fat—like steak, cheese, butter, and pork chops. But where has all that noble calorie-counting and self-righteous fat gram slashing gotten us?

I’ll tell you where: smack dab in the middle of unprecedented epidemics of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, dementia, and psychological problems. Somethin’ ain’t right, guys. We did what they told us to do, but we’re sicker and more overweight than ever. And so are our kids.

Don’t go it alone, big guy.
If you’ve been looking for someone to help you make sense of the wasteland advice about health and nutrition has become, you’ve come to the right place. If you’ve been looking for someone to tell it like it is and give you the support you need—whether that means a pat on the back or a kick in the butt—I’m right here! (Pats on the butt cost extra…)

Whatever you’re looking to accomplish, whether it’s losing the beer belly, optimizing athletic performance, reducing your need for pharmaceutical drugs with wacko side effects, warding off the heart disease that got your father and grandfather, or just cleaning up an already good diet, I can help you reach your goals. And whether you’re an old hand at Paleo, Primal, or low-carb eating, or are brand new to all this and still kinda scared about adding all the “bad” foods back into your diet, we can work together to get you where you want to be.

Lost? Let's find the way together.
Don’t make me play the military card. I was in the Air Force. I know what it’s like to literally trust the guy (or gal!) up in the cockpit with your life. If you’ve got some goals you’d like to achieve, places you’d like to go with your health and physique, let me be your copilot. It’s your body. You’ll be in the driver’s seat, but together, we’ll navigate through the fog and land smoothly at the destination you choose.

If you’d like someone to have your back in this fight, please contact me and see if there’s a package that’s right for you. 

I promise you more personal attention than you’ve had from any MD in a long time. And no alfalfa sprout salads!

Feel completely overwhelmed by all the conflicting messages? 
It doesn’t have to be that way.

    1. Yes, I do, depending on someone’s health situation and what they’re looking to accomplish. I certainly think it’s a valid option.

  2. Amy, I so appreciate your clarity in this work. I've been following LCHF protocols following a stroke a year ago. Have reversed Type II Diabetes, abated heart failure symptoms, improved ED, shed 90+lbs. I did it simply and easily as you suggest. Thank you so very much for your work.

    1. Oh my gosh...I accidentally deleted your comment! Don't know how to recover it. Sorry about that! I have not written anything on T1D. Suggest reading the book Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution, written by Dr. Richard Bernstein. Also check him out on YouTube. I think he calls it "Diabetes University" or something like that. Just search for Richard Bernstein and diabetes in YouTube and his videos should come up. He's the expert!

  4. I like the taste of meat but my body thrives on veggies. I have given into the addiction of what my body wants. I am so healthy for this addiction but I am looking for a clinic to rid me of this addiction. LOL!

    I am a keto/nutritarian that is mainly is about 90% plant based. I rarely have meat. I do enjoy sardines, salmon, liver and turkey bacon occasionally. Eggs are a staple for protein along with NOW pea protein powder. I do not stress over my diet. I have a list of staples but I will divert periodically.

  5. Do you have any dietary suggestions for depression?

    1. Yes, I do. Many, MANY suggestions, but it depends on what the root cause of the depression is. Many different things can contribute, so there are no blanket statements to be made, and I can't recommend anything without knowing more about the situation. Consider booking a consultation, or contact me by email. (Contact form is on the website, on the righthand sidebar.)

  6. I am reading your Alzheimer's book. Superb. Pitched at the right level, with extremely good, current research as documentation. I put it up there with "Good Calories Bad Calories," which I consider very high praise indeed.

    Question: have you run across any research relating ketones to night blindness? I am old, and night blindness has been an increasing concern. Since getting into ketosis (I started with a 4 day fast) nearly 3 mos ago, I have noticed a truly marked improvement in my night vision. At first I thought I was merely delusional, that it was all wishful thinking, and I have not had any formal testing to back up my observations. Nevertheless, I am now convinced. Any thoughts on the matter? Thanks

    1. Hi there, thanks for checking out the book! :) Glad it's been helpful. (Please consider leaving a review on Amazon if you have a chance. Those are very helpful for rankings and stuff like that.)

      As for night blindness -- no, I haven't come across anything specific on that with regard to ketosis, but there have been A LOT of reports of improved vision/eyesight in general from people doing low carb/keto. Just like the kidneys, the most harmful things for eye health are chronically elevated blood sugar and insulin so it's totally reasonable to me that so many people have better eyesight and overall eye health after going low carb/keto. :)

    2. Just tagging on here -- since going Keto my eyesight has improved significantly -- enough that my prescription changed and I needed new glasses...So, a total Non-Scale-Victory if there ever was on! :)
