Is Dr. Tro Kalayjian “a zealot or a caring physician?”
That’s the question posed by Dr. Bret Scher, who interviewed Dr. Tro in Episode #49 of the Diet Doctor Podcast, which was released yesterday.
Scher sets up the interview as follows:
Few people have taken a personal and professional journey as remarkable as Dr. Tro’s.
He’s lost over 150 pounds (68 kilos), a personal experience that transformed his medical practice. Since then, he’s helped thousands of people through his practice, his podcast, and his social media presence.
Yet, he’s called a “zealot” and regularly endures strong criticism over social media. And he engages that criticism head on with a fervor that seems at odds with his easy-going personality.
In this interview, we explore why that is. We see how, at his core, his mission is to help and defend his patients.
Dr. Scher and Dr. Tro discuss calories in/calories out, the carbohydrate-insulin model, food addiction, and many practical aspects of how and why low-carb works for Dr. Tro’s patients.
