8/18/20 – Weight Loss and Metabolic Health Questions

At last week’s online group coaching meeting, hosted by Dr. Tro’s Medical Weight Loss & Direct Primary Care, Dr. Tro and health coach Amy Eiges answered a wide range of participant questions. The meeting was attended by more than 70 people. Some of the topics covered included:

  • How to know if you’re metabolically healthy and markers for reclaiming health
  • Is it better to count total or net carbs (and what counts as a carb)?
  • Do I need to “chase” ketones to lose weight?
  • Does too much protein kick me out of ketosis?
  • Blood sugar fluctuations during the day

The following study link, shared by Dr. Tro, shows that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) reduces A1c and improves insulin resistance:

Brian Wiley is a Certified Health Coach who struggled to lose weight for most of his life. He attempted most of the mainstream approaches, along with the standard advice to “eat, less move more.” This advice resulted in minimal short-term success, or no success at all. Brian then adopted a low-carb lifestyle in 2009, and succeeded in losing 100 pounds. He has maintained that weight loss ever since using a low-carb ketogenic IF lifestyle. "I see people every day, both in real life and on social media, struggling, going through the same cycles of unsuccessful dieting like I did. I want to serve as an example that this approach can be successful, is not a fad, and is a healthy long-term lifestyle solution." Brian is also an ACE certified personal trainer.
